The Pacifier

Synopsis:

As a member of the world's fiercest and most highly trained military force, Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe (Diesel) thought he was prepared to take on any duty no matter how perilous or impossible. Then he tried baby-sitting.

Assigned to protect five out-of-control children, Shane is suddenly faced with juggling two outrageously incompatible jobs: fighting the bad guys while keeping house. Replacing his usual arsenal of wetsuits and weapons with diapers and juice boxes, Shane finds he's truly a SEAL out of water.

But, even though he's more suited to drop zones, demolitions and destroying enemy targets, he soon realises he is on the most important mission of his life: keeping a family together.

What the critics are saying:

"Shankman begins with situations that should work, but he doesn't quite boost them over the top into laugh-out-loud. Maybe he's trusting too much on the funny casting. Casting is only funny when the cast is given something funny to do, a truth that should be engraved above the portals of every film school."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Disney's new family flick is chipper and occasionally clever as it sends up the high-tech know-how required by 21st-century parents."
- Ned Martel, New York Times

"Jokes never build, stagings are clumsy, and the whole thing feels as if it were slapped together in haste."
- Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter


Vin Diesel tries his best to make this comedy work, but the material just isn't funny enough.

The Pacifier Same old jokes but big up to Vin Diesel for trying to break away from the XXX/Fast n the Furious zone into something for the kids.

Pacifier I thought it was a brilliant comedy a job well done by Vin Diesel. Shows he can be a bit versatile however he is much better at the hard core action. Hitch
