The cop-out is mitigated by Allen's ability to impart a comfortable, lived-in quality to his roles, this one included.
The best scenes in the movie belong to James Belushi.
This is harmless fun for the holiday season, but Tim Allen doesn't give movie the punch it needs.
The picture is nearly stolen, however, by co-star Greg Germann (of TV's Ally McBeal) in the role of Joe's company's resident corporate weasel. Germann's squinty-eyed insincerity is truly a marvel to behold, and it's an astringent corrective to the film's rather too frequent feel-good passages. Read full review
An unimaginative schoolyard-bully comedy.
