Technical Specs


Did You Know?

Director Cameo: [Adam Shankman] the student driver teacher with Brittany Snow.

Errors in geography: The US Government car used in the last car chase has a speedometer where the large numbers are in kilometers per hour, and the small ones in MPH, consistent with this film actually being filmed in Canada but not correct for a US Government car.

[after Shane just did the Peter Panda Dance for Peter]
Peter Plummer: Good night, Daddy!

User Review

Hey, this was really fun

Rating: 8/10

Okay, sometimes I think the critics are all single "non-family" people. I just got back from viewing this movie with 7 adults and 11 children. It was wonderful to watch the kids giggle and hurrah at Vin Diesel, tough guy, nice guy, real softie routine. Whether he was kicking bad guys or changing diapers, he was great. While there were many clichés and material we've all seen in other forms, we sometime forget that this stuff works. My child is 8 and this is fresh to him. I'm so please that we were able to bring 18 people of varying ages who all had a good time. I say forget the negatives and focus on what we sometimes forget, an afternoon or evening with you kids is the best pacifier.
