Talented actors are wasted on bad script.

O arco dramtico vivenciado pelo personagem de Tim Allen consegue, por vezes, comover e despertar uma identificao com o espectador. Pena que o filme, em sua insistncia em se afirmar como comdia, tente criar piadas to vazias e mal-sucedidas.

Much of the running time is devoted to dramatic subplots and other such misguided attempts at pathos.
February 8, 2003
Bearing clear marks of a film made strictly to pay the bills, its performances are phoned in and its direction is eminently average.
December 8, 2002
A cliched-filled family film with lines and situations so predictable, audiences will be left groaning rather than laughing.

The sort of feeble redemption story Hollywood often palms off on the film-going public.
November 6, 2002
Not something to write home about.
October 15, 2002
Pure sitcom material that could easily be polished off in 30 minutes, with laugh track.
August 20, 2002
If you're sitting through this flick searching for the two or three mild chuckles, you're in for an experience akin to that old "needle in a haystack" scenario.

...viewed as something like an expanded television sitcom, the film works pretty well, but do you really want to spend any more than thirty minutes time with it?

Neither abysmally bad nor truly good, this is filmmaking McDonald's-style: You know early on what you've let yourself in for and, while it's not too tasty, it's reasonably easy to digest.
March 19, 2002
Has the look and feel of an extended sitcom episode.

A cloyingly mechanical wannabe comedy in the worm-turns mode.
January 6, 2002
While never truly funny or insightful, the movie works intermittently by digging a little deeper than you might expect.
January 6, 2002
A movie unsure of what it wants to be: a drama about a man wrestling his personal demons or a light-entertainment vehicle for its star, Tim Allen.
January 3, 2002
I'd rather see a whole movie about an aging B-movie actor and forget about all the stuff with Tim Allen.
January 3, 2002
Bland, predictable, unfunny.
January 2, 2002
It's three times as long as a TV sitcom, but with just as much depth, a bit more swearing, and probably fewer laughs.
