John Cena has quickly become one of Hollywood's top choices for comedies. And rightfully so. He is outstanding as the straight guy that finds himself in ridiculous situations. What is surprising is how well he pulls off the heartwarming and lovable acting requirements. He made this movie much better than it would have been with someone less talented.
The film isn't great, but it is filled with laugh-out-loud moments and it is entertaining for the whole family. My seven year old laughed hard several times and one time she laughed for three minutes straight. I thought she was going to pass out from lack of air.
The story is simple, the editing is terrible, but that all can be forgiven since it is so funny and keeps the kids entertained all the way through the movie.
This isn't the kind of film that kids will want to see again and again, but it is one that they will be happy they saw.
If you are looking for something fun to do with the family this weekend, this movie would probably be a fun choice.
