  1. 60
    Wincer keeps the insubstantial story moving and the comedy light.
  2. 60
    The running joke about coffee enemas will date this innocuous, crowd-pleasing adventure comedy.
  3. 50
    Isn't a total crock.
  4. 50
    It may not be brilliant, but who would you rather your kids took as a role model: Crocodile Dundee, David Spade or Tom Green?
  5. The punchlines are as tired as Hogan looks.
  6. 40
    Nostalgia and comedy are run through a food processor until they become a flavorless paste.
  7. There's something good-natured, even sweet about this well-meaning affair.
  8. 40
    Despite the lack of zing in Hogan's frequently self-deprecating zingers, director Simon Wincer repeatedly lets scenes dribble on until an awkward silence engulfs everyone onscreen.
  9. It would be hard to imagine a less exciting movie. Still, inoffensiveness can sometimes lead to success, at least initially, for a family film.

    Hogan's rough-and-ready charm remains intact, but it's not enough to salvage this instantly forgettable movie.

    Amiable rather than genuinely funny.
