Movie Night: The Pacifier.

Review #552: The Pacifier.

Vin Diesel (Shane Wolfe), Lauren Graham (Claire Fletcher), Faith Ford (Julie Plummer), Brittany Snow (Zoe Plummer), Max Thieriot (Seth Plummer), Morgan York (Lulu Plummer), Chris Potter (Bill Fawcett), and Brad Garrett (Dwayne Murney) Directed by Adam Shankman.

As I sat inside at a Wendy's tonight, I tried to think of sentences for this movie. Was it awful? No. Was it any good? Not really. As it turned out, eating the Son of Baconator at that Wendy's was better than the movie, as I finally came up with words for this movie. So where do I begin? Let's start with the "comedy" of the movie. Comedy can be fun to watch, it just depends on the enthusiasm of the comedy, and the level of watchability. The Pacifier doesn't have much of either. The comedy feels phoned in at times, and while Diesel may try his best, he can't save the movie. The action is alright, nothing too special, though Diesel has done better scenes then this in better movies. The plot is mediocre at best, and the two "villains" are really easy to tell in retrospect given that it's the only couple in the movie, that and who else could it have been? The movie might have some nostalgia with others, but for me, this is just a mediocre movie that can't escape its flaws.

Overall, I give it 5 out of 10 stars.
