    Although the plot in this movie is cheesy, I thought this movie was hilarious and surprisingly charming, one you and your family will enjoy, just don't expect a deep plot backing it up.

    Great family movie, but not one that I enjoyed otherwise. I do like Vin Diesel but I kept wondering what he was thinking when he read this script and agreed to do this movie. If you can get over the childish jokes and bland acting you realize that there are worse option than The Pacifier, but their are far better options as well.

    Childish and stupid but The Pacifier is surprisingly rather entertaining that I some-what enjoyed watching. My opinion of it varies at times but overall, It wasn't that bad.

    An immature comedy that tries to keep us watching with a few different approaches entertainment-wise. They all fail, and Diesel is poorly cast in his role.

    I used to always hate this movie, but now there are pros and cons. There are more cons than pros. I still don't like this movie but i like that they play Good Charlotte "The Anthem" in the song. That is the only pro. But i hated this movie originally because the girl scouts got back at the boy scouts. But now i just dont like it because of the humor. Vin Diesel is a great actor though, he was in XXX. Expand

    The Pacifier left me needing morphine.
    It has moments of good, but is overwhelmingly bad to anyone over the age of about six, who can see what a ludicrous plot surrounds it.

  1. Here's a bizarre hodgepodge of influences: "Kindergarten Cop" meets "Sound of Music," filtered through the Hulk Hogan movie "Mr. Nanny." The formula, by now so overused it's actually formless, is pure Disney
  2. Vin Diesel is out of his element in this lame family comedy.
  3. Cheerful but mind-numbing.
