Has enough in the way of sentiment and goofy situational predicaments to put it over as a serviceable family holiday attraction.

Even the weather seems tailored to the script's shifting needs.

Cage looks cold most of the time, and has retractable stubble. The rest of the cast look like they're waiting for summer.

It's a minor holiday miracle that this homey comedy barely elicits even a chuckle.

Considering that there isn't a single laugh in the whole picture, the term 'comedy' must be used loosely.

The question is, can a trio of amiable goofballs take you through a movie that's, well, not so great?

In no circumstances, even under threat of torture, admit to anyone that you were suckered into seeing this, one of the worst movies of the year.

It should be preserved by the Library of Congress, as an example of creative desperation. It plays like a documentary about a group of actors forced to perform in a screenplay that contains not one single laugh, or moment of wit, or flash of intelligence.
