I'm not gonna try to convince anyone that this is a "good" movie. But I like it, because they got one thing right: the car. The General Lee is definitely the star of this show (Shhh, no one tell Knoxville!). Anyone who loved the show loved it for the car...and Daisy, I suppose. But I'm with Bo on this one. That car is beautiful, and is lovingly shot throughout the movie. I can't think of a recent movie that better exemplifies the words 'car porn.' Sorry, "Gone in 60 Seconds" remake, if you'd have put a Charger in there for more than three seconds, you might have had a shot.
I liked this movie slightly more than I like football, and by football I mean the literal act of taking a foot in the balls. This painful family movie was so grossly over the top sweet I found myself hoping for a different ending. One in which The Rock, in an ironic twist gets his bell rung so bad on the football field that he is reduced to having to be spoon fed like an infant by his daughter as she has to take on a full time job to pay for his medical bills (and acting lessons)..
If you are between the ages of 6 & 9, this movie rocks! If you have to watch it with a 6 & 9 yr. old...not totally painful, but...
Pettis & Sanchez are really endearing but The Rock could use some acting lessons.
