This movie offers up lots of cliches and predictability, and a less than stellar script- but I cannot lie, part of me just cannot say no to a movie that makes a tough guy play a softie. The best example is Kindergarten Cop. This is not a great movie (unlike that one), but I laughed, as some of it is really funny. Diesel does a decent job considring the material. I also liked seeing Carol Kane and Lauren Graham. Some of the child actors are also not bad.
