  • Summary: Ray Bradstone is "the best wheel man in the business" – the bank robbery business, that is. Just out of prison, he is determined to go straight and be the best parent he can be to his daughter, Sally, and make amends with his ex-wife, Lynne. After trying everything he can to re-connect with his family to no avail, and struggling in vain to find honest work, his old bank-robbing crew, led by Phillip Larue, offers him one last job. He signs on as their getaway driver – only to change his mind at the last second. What prompts this change of heart is an opportunity: Sally is going on a class field trip to the New Orleans Natural History Museum and Ray has been asked to be the chaperone. It’s his last chance to be the father he always wanted to be. Sally and her class are in for one of the craziest field trips ever. (Samuel Goldwyn Films) Expand

    Think Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Kindergarten Cop," but better.

    A lightweight comedy aimed, presumably, at tweeners and fans of World Wrestling Entertainment.

    Nothing here -- technologically, linguistically or visually -- would not be more at home decades ago, when director Stephen Herek helmed "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and "The Mighty Ducks."

    Levesque has rough, in-the-moment charm but paltry characterization skills, Corrigan's natural edge feels out of place as a Disney-esque hoodlum and Winter seems hamstrung playing an adolescent only a fraction as compelling as her hilariously bookish daughter on the ABC sitcom "Modern Family."

    Levesque, soon to be seen in an action movie, "Inside Out," that is probably more suited to his talents, is a reasonably engaging and likeable screen presence.

    The Chaperone squanders nice locations and an expert comic performance by Yeardley Smith (the voice of Lisa Simpson) as the teacher trying to supervise the trip.

    The Chaperone is being marketed as a comedy, though no one seems to have told anyone involved.

    One word could describe this movie: Boring. I tried watching it with my friend and we were making jokes the whole way through about background shots. Triple H is no actor, the kid is no actor, no one here was any good. Word of advice, skip this snooze-fest. Expand
