THE PACIFIER (Theatrical Release USA 2005)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Stars ììì

The Pacifier—
shows Vin Diesel’s softer side as he is assigned by the military to protect and care for five children living in the state of Maryland after their father dies. After Vin Diesel’s Fast and Furious days, it is hard to imagine him playing as a care-giving, family man; but he fills the bill nicely and turns the film into a fair to good family picture. The script is average, nothing new here, no surprises and a predictable storyline.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s not a typical Vin Diesel movie, but it has its merits as a family share flick.
