| Original Score: D+
The image that best sums up this dismal comedy is Cedric the Entertainer cringing over a cell phone that's been hidden in a cow's rectum.
This makes an even worse job of its premise than you might expect, leaving it to the usual sidekick, Cedric the Entertainer, to provide the occasional laugh as a convict-turned-holy man.
The highlights, or at least breaks from the tedium, come from Cedric The Entertainer.
None of the girls are demonstrably embarrassed to be in the film, which speaks to either their work ethic or their poor taste.
I venture that this is not what we really want from Tommy Lee Jones.
| Original Score: C
It's got a lot of small movies bouncing around inside it, but there's no big movie on the outside.
Though there isn't much to recommend Man of the House, there's really no reason to warn people off of it, either.
| Original Score: 2/4
Mindless, vapid fare.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
Straight-to- video-quality mess.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Herek keeps things moving and throws in some lively action sequences but keeps the emphasis on the amusing and affectionate relationships between Jones and the girls.
| Original Score: 3/5
Though predictability runs all through this House, it works up a modest charm thanks to the emergence of likable, individualized characters.
A high concept that goes nowhere.
90 minutes with a few routine chase sequences but without a single laugh represents a poor way to spend a looooooong evening.
| Original Score: 1/4
The movie is awesome only in its predictability.
| Original Score: C-
Sharp instructs the girls on the evils of term-paper plagiarism and the importance of dressing to cover their navels.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
It's not a perfect film, by far, but Jones' playful banter with his cheerleading charges remains light and just this side of predictable.
Sitcom-style trifle proves more than passably amusing.
Despite having a comeptent director, it's a slap-dash thing, with Cedric not really fitting into the main story.
| Original Score: 2/5
