Storyline

Henry is a young FBI agent. During a three-year absence from his home in Shreveport, his mother Marty loses more than 100 pounds, looks great, and to Henry's embarrassment, has become a party animal. Within a day of Henry's returning home with his fiancée, Emily, who's an FBI profiler, Marty meets Tommy, a suave foreigner. He's posing as a consultant, but he's an international art thief, in town to steal "Mother and Son," a Bernini sculpture. Henry is detailed to head a team keeping his mom's new boyfriend under surveillance. Love, law enforcement, and filial devotion are set to collide. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

feel good family comedy with a bit of action
27 June 2008 | by beregicSee all my reviews

first things first: Colin Hanks, as well as his character Henry Durand should have not been part of this feature; the character is way to stereotypical,i kept having such thoughts as "what a moron!" throwout the whole movie; the "actor" is probably one of the worst i have seen lately. Antonio Banderas, Meg Ryan and Selma Blair do all the work and bring the real laughs, sympathy and charm. Colin Hanks is one of the worst miss-casts i have seen in some time, and because of that the movie suffers. there are many gigs that he is literally killing off, especially in the first part.besides some of his really stuck-up idiotic dialogs, his body language and delivery are absolutely abdominal(forced at best). the movie would had been way better without him! also his role here would had been best played by Owen Wilson, as first example that comes to mind.while i enjoyed George Gallo's "ok" direction, he should pay better attention to such as an important aspects. oh my...and beside that God forbid if there are any such FBI characters , even remotely close to reality.

few other positive/negative thoughts: the introductory scene gave me a bad first impression, i got afraid this would be some "b" rated feature. another dumb scene would be the one having 30 or so FBI agents briefed on a possible theft of a statue(30...heh...give me a break)but once passing the "fat" Meg Ryan and getting the "regular" sized one, things picked up for me))) she and Antonio Banderas are interesting and fun to watch , a whole different approach as compared with "the assassin". the plot is quiet lame, the heist makes no sense at all, but good enough to work for a "feel good" comedy in the end. there is even a "twist" that only makes matters worse as seen from a plot integrity aspect. the Albanian family is the funniest "gig" i think.

well my score would 6 and that mostly because Antonio Banderas is in great shape, even if comedies are not really his domain.Meg Ryan is good too but towards end her character has nothing original to offer, too stereotypical.
