    This is a very cheesy comedy that has a wasted cast. I thought that the film was pretty bad and it really didn't offer anything good for the viewer. The script was underdeveloped and the cast simply didn't do it for me. I felt that the film tried too hard at being sentimental, and it ultimately became forgettable. I felt that this film was boring, and ultimately not interesting. The film has wasted potential of being a fun, memorable family comedy. Where the film fails is in the script, the story just doesn't do it. They could have put more effort in this film. This film is definitely not Chevy Chase's best film, and the film just fails to be good. This is an awful film with a poor cast and story. Add to that that the filmmakers are trying to make it too emotional, and you have a film that isn't worth your time. Man of the House is clichéd, dull, boring an unfunny. The film is just weak in terms of a good story and a good cast. Director James Orr fails to give us a good film, and this is a film to avoid and definitely not worth your time. I hated the film, and I thought it was disappointing. This is definitely not one of those childhood comedies that are worth seeing again years after its release. There are plenty of good family oriented comedies that have been released in this period, but Man of the House is not one of them. This is just a poorly constructed film that doesn't have anything going for it. This film simply isn't worth your time. Watch something else.

    Yes, I understand this isn't movie magic, however it was one of my favorites as a child (I was in 5th grade when this came out!) and I guiltily admit I still enjoy it now.

    Hilarious, well I thought it was anyway. It has Chevy Chase as the worst/greatest step dad to ever live. It's practically the only movie Disney ever released involving broken homes so it automatically gets points for being original. The Mob killing plot that somehow fit in to Indian clubs and bonding sessions was a little extreme, but it made sense in the 90s. If only more mainstream movies were this oddball.
