Innocuous romcom trifle with serious underpinnings: how to handle a personal attack at the workplace. Could have gone deep but avoided that for predictable small screen resolutions. Is "it's inoffensive" a recommendation? Ho-hum.

Bullied at work, a father decides to defend himself and schedules a fight with his bully. He soon visits a defense instructor who helps get him ready for the fight. This family comedy is a one joke gimmick but does its best to entertain.

It's got some hackneyed jokes and the plot isn't very inventive. But there's a subtle joke or two. Everyone did a good job in their roles; no one was too bored, or overdramatic, or bland. The training scenes, where Jim punishes Tim, were amusing.

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.

3/24/2016: Not a great or really funny, but I still liked this movie. It had an excellent cast and I liked the story.

Pretty weak moral outing with very few moments for adults.

Schmuck turns hip movie. Not too bad. Laughed a few times. I think the movie tries to make a lot of points about shallowness. You know

Cannot go wrong with Tim Allen and this film was funny (hilarious squash scene) heartwarming and left a fuzzy warm feeling at the end. James Belushi was also awesome.

Putting aside the massive gaps in story, the bloody awful plinky-plonk soundtrack, the predictable storyline, the sitcom feel and the overly precocious child, it is actually a mediocre film.

it was an ok movie, it's watchable but I don't think I'll watch it again though, it was an ok movie, it was directed by John Pasquin, it was an ok film but I don't want it on DVD, I expected better

They needed somebody to want to star, and since Tim Allen whores himself off anyways, there you go.

EEEEK! Seems like a very high score for what seems to be a pretty much unheard of Tim Allen movie right?

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.

This was a great feel-good movie. A total sleeper, there are moments in this film that will make you laugh out loud, like when Julie Bowen takes Allen to a new age art feature. The nude male artist paints a canvas by drawing paint up into his ass from an enema bag, then splatters it on the canvas by bending over and squirting it. Some of the paint splatters onto Allen. I started watching this movie on a rainy day at home, totally expecting it to be a stinker...but found myself pleasantly surprised.

Not a very good movie, but I liked it when I was a kid. And I still enjoy it today.
