Has sufficient mayhem to please Diesel's action fans while allowing the star to reach out to family audiences.

Dallas Observer
Here's a bizarre hodgepodge of influences: "Kindergarten Cop" meets "Sound of Music," filtered through the Hulk Hogan movie "Mr. Nanny." The formula, by now so overused it's actually formless, is pure Disney

Mr. Diesel could not have succeeded as a genre-switcher without the proven television talents of the film's able ensemble.
40
Vin Diesel is out of his element in this lame family comedy.
40
Most of the occasional chuckles are provided by the spunky York, who really gives Diesel a run for his money.

Chicago Tribune
Cheerful but mind-numbing.

ReelViews
Offensive because it offers little more than unleavened stupidity in the place of the family-friendly action and comedy it promises.
30
With no real comedy to enjoy, it's torture to watch Diesel undergo a predictable change from emotionless soldier to loving family man. Makes you want to spit out your pacifier in disgust.

Chicago Reader
Director Adam Shankman (Bringing Down the House) can't block a sight gag to save his life.
20
Is it funny? Not for a minute.
