Man of the House
Time Out says
Much like fellow fish-out-of-water crime comedies ‘Connie and Carla’ and ‘Miss Congeniality’, this sidelines its criminal plot in favour of humour. But humour is, alas, in short supply. It draws weak jokes from the characters’ differences in age, gender and values. The latter gives rise to a hypocritical stance: while the camera fetishises the young women’s bodies, the moral advises against overexposing them. Equally nonsensical is the casting of twentysomething actresses as cheerleaders (bet you never thought you’d see a forensic scientist from TV’s ‘CSI: NY’ in bunches and a miniskirt). With poor writing and a distasteful tone, this makes an even worse job of its premise than you might expect, leaving it to the usual sidekick, Cedric the Entertainer, to provide the occasional laugh as a convict-turned-holy man.
