Storyline

A friend persuades the former wrestling star Sean to do a job as bodyguard for the two kids of top manager Frank Mason - someone is threatening him to get the plans for a secret micro chip. But when Sean arrives at his house it turns out that he'll not only have to bodyguard the spoiled brats, but also be their nanny, since they again scared away their former one. From then on he's occupied more protecting himself from the kids than them from the villain. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Number 47 on the bottom 100 list?
19 June 2003 | by sportskid1164See all my reviews

Number 47 on the bottom 100 list? It only got about 3.0/10! It deserves at least 5.9/10!! This was a good, clever family film with plenty of laugh out loud scenes. Hulk Hogan is good with younger kids. It's funny to see the way they get along with eachother. Good, Clean Family Fun!

7/10 stars
