Walt Disney Pictures presents action hero Vin Diesel in a fast-paced comedy smash. Lt. Shane Wolfe (Diesel) is a tough-as-nails Navy S.E.A.L. who has controlled military operations in every corner of the globe. Now the ultimate test comes when he's assigned to protect the home front ... as in a house loaded with five out-of-control kids! But even when he trades combat gear for diapers and juice boxes, it's not just a babysitting job -- it's an adventure!
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Vin Diesel parodies his tough guy image for the family audience, but the result is only moderately amusing.

Common Sense Says
A crass, crude, and overly-familiar comedy.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Pacifier has a lot of cartoonish "action violence": no blood and no on-screen shooting but an exploding helicopter, a glimpse of a dead body, a lot of kicking and hitting. A parent is killed (off-screen). There's a lot of potty humor including many diaper jokes and a character covered with sewage. There's also some crude schoolyard language including "bite me," "boobs," "spaz," "skanky." One daughter wears a crucifix, though there is no further evidence of any religious faith. The portrayal of the bad guys has some unpleasantly racist overtones, and some of the "humorous" insults are sexist and homophobic. And there's intrusive product placement for Costco and other brands.
