Movie Info

As an elite member of the world's fiercest and most highly trained fighting force, Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe thought he was prepared to take on any duty, no matter how perilous or impossible... until he tried baby-sitting. Assigned to protect the five out-of-control children of an assassinated scientist, who had been working on vital government secrets, Shane is suddenly faced with juggling two outrageously incompatible jobs -- fighting the bad guys and keeping house. Replacing his usual arsenal of wetsuits and weapons with diapers and juice boxes, Shane not only must battle a deceptive enemy but wrangle teen rebel Zoe, sullen 14-year-old Seth, eight-year-old Ninja-wanna-be Lulu, as well as three-year-old Peter and baby Tyler -- not to mention their off-beat Romanian Nanny. He's truly a SEAL out of water, and now it's up to this one-time lone warrior to take on the most important mission of his life: keeping a family together.

Audience Reviews for The Pacifier

    The Pacifier sucked, it was boring, badly acted, and terrible action, and one of my least favorite film.

    it had its moments but it all comes back to the disney ending. as soon as the lead starts falling in love with the kids there is no looking back
    Brendan N Super Reviewer

    I beared this film, laughed a few times, attempted to relate to the characters, and even semi-enjoyed it at one point. Professionally speaking, however, in the game of establishing a family film that shines as a classic in the light of basic walkovers, this film didn't even put a dent in the barrier.
