Story is nothing new, but a fun movie
on 21 July 2014
5 stars as long as you understand what it is and what it's not: This is a "tough-guy-meets-cuddly-child" story, similar to Kindergarten Cop, The Pacifier, The Tooth Fairy, and Despicable Me: a story about a self-centered tough guy with questionable morale that has a change of heart due to the children's innocence and kindness. The daughter does a spectacular job of disrupting Joe's "rich-bachelor" lifestyle. The interactions between them are slightly exaggerated and somewhat cheesy at the end, as you would expect, but overall it's very well done.
