Perhaps the idea of a Die Hard franchise featuring the same protagonist is becoming cliche. If you removed John McClane and inserted a more plausible father character (i.e. Joe Everybody), putting the characterization of this film on footing with the likes of True Lies, would it work? Considering the director (Max Payne, Behind Enemy Lines), probably not- bummer.
Nacho had his moments, but this film- directed in the same vein as Napoleon Dynamite- ultimately falls short of the mark. But hey, at least Nacho gets to take the kids on field trips at the end of the day.
This film elicited a few laughs, although I would have expected more from an awfully humorous concept and the collaboration of Samberg, McBride, and especially Bill Hader. Then again, take a look at this film's director. Apparently this is what you get when you hire Lonely Island to direct a film. NOT Like A Boss.
