Basically, this is Big Vin's Kindergarten Cop and your enjoyment of it will depend on just how much of a Vin fan you are.

Diesel seems to talk at half-speed most of the time, and doesn't exactly have a natural comic sensibility, but he works hard with a cast of great kids.

For what it is--lazily written fluff--the film's extremely entertaining.

A shrewd attempt to humanize Vin Diesel, who has been floundering in bloated action blockbusters.

Silly as it is, the Disney formula remains viable because it still works

Vin Diesel reports to diaper duty in the charmingly dippy Disney flick The Pacifier. Diesel's willingness to appear foolish lends this movie its offbeat appeal

Vin Diesel finally does a decent film. This isn't a laugh out loud comedy but it is a pleasant experience that will give you a few chuckles. Worth a matinee ticket.

Following in the footsteps of the Arnolds and the Sylvesters before him, Vin Diesel pulls off a nice comic performance in the otherwise gushy The Pacifier.

[Diesel's] funnier here than he was in The Chronicles of Riddick, and that one wasn't even billed as a comedy.

The Pacifier provides passable, albeit predictable, family fare sure to please the kids without forcing their adult counterparts to whine like babies.

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

Is Vin Diesel stiff and one-note? Yes, but comedy is about reactions. What's funny is the kids reacting to him, not his hammy antics.

You can see the fingerprints of lots of other projects on The Pacifier, so the surprise is that the movie is as sweet and endearing as it is.
