Goofs

Throughout the film, Captain Fawcett's hair is neatly combed. However, during the final battle (starting with the scene of him threatening to shoot Mrs. Plummer if she doesn't get him through the minefield around the vault), his hair changes to being slightly ruined on his left side. Captain Fawcett's hair remains this way to his final scene, in which he and the Chuns are being arrested. See more »

Purely Fun Family Film
24 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Vin Diesel? In a Comedy? Yes! And he's awesome! I'm hoping this doesn't indicate a genre change for Diesel-I love watching his actioners, but when he decides he needs to retire, he should definitely give comedy a sincere consideration. This wasn't "awesome," but it was highly enjoyable.

The premise has been done before...when I saw the previews for this work, I thought, "Just another Suburban Commando ripoff." I'm happy to report that this endeavor is so much more than that, and stands alone, without any connection to that work than a military character in a suburban setting. Everything else is different, and well executed by these gifted child actors and Vin Diesel in his most lovable role.

I highly recommend this work to any family who are looking for something worthy in which to invest their movie time.

It rates a 7.6/10 from...

the Fiend :.
