Joe Somebody Reviews
It's OK. It's not a masterpiece, but it's not bad, either. A good popcorn flick when you don't want to think too much.
Well maybe it is, but I don't really care, I loved this movie. I picked it up dirt cheap on dvd and got it for James (jim) Belushi, I had read that he was good in this so I took on a chance on a blind buy. (glad I did)
It has a quote on the dvd box that says "Enormously entertaining and heart-warming" and that's pretty much what it is, but it's also damn funny to boot.
Tim Allen is really good here as is Julie Bowen from Boston Legal (and she's also very hot!) but Kelly Lynch (Roadhouse, Curly Sue) has very little to do. A young Hayden Panettiere (Heroes) plays the 12 year old going on 60, wise Yoda like child that always seems to be in these kind of movies to help steer the adults in the right direction.
The star of the show though is Jim Belushi, man he is funny in this and a great character who steals every scene he is in.
Don't expect to watch this movie with some kind of unexpected ending, you know after 10 mins what's going to happen, but it's a damn fun ride that will make you laugh and smile all the way through.
