When the police are chasing the kids in the mini-van, Lulu says she is parking and immediately does a 360-degree spin to get next to the curb. However, in the wide shot, the mini-van clearly stops about five feet short. Only in the close-up does the van end up right on the curb. See more »

Once upon a time, there was a family of... elves. And one day the... little elf... family went into the magic forest to look for a secret... gnome... facility. The gnomes were turning mushrooms into uranium, so three of the elves laid down heavy suppressive fire on the gnomes, while the others manoeuvered around to the right flank, killing all those left alive.

One of the better comedies from the Walt Disney Studios in the past several years has been the Pacifier. If Arnold Schwarzenegger can manage kindergarten, than Vin Diesel can certainly babysit a whole family of a scientist who's been killed under mysterious circumstances.
Tate Donovan was doing some top secret work for the government and whoever killed him didn't get what they want. That puts his family in danger. Vin Diesel's been sent to protect them.
Of course getting into their lives wasn't included in the bargain. Mother Faith Ford has a handful with her kids who range from the teens down to the toddler. The handful is now dumped on Diesel.
Diesel's tough guy screen image is nicely played against by the kids. Look for a very nice performance by Brad Garrett as a blowhard assistant principal who Diesel puts nicely in his place.
For the conclusion, the film glides effortlessly back into the action genre we're more familiar with in Vin Diesel films.
Nice film for the whole family and try to learn the Andy Panda dance.
