Vin Diesel redefines what it means to be an action hero in the heartwarming family action-comedy "The Pacifier." Diesel stars as Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe who, as an elite member of the world's fiercest and most highly trained force thought he was prepared to take on any duty no matter how perilous or impossible... until he tried baby-sitting. Assigned to protect the five out-of-control children of an assassinated scientist working on vital government secrets, Shane is suddenly faced with the juggling two outrageously incompatible jobs: fighting the bad guys while keeping house. Replacing his usual arsenal of wetsuits and weapons with diapers and juice boxes, Shane not only must battle a deceptive enemy but wrangle teen rebel Zoe (Brittany Snow), sullen 14 year-old Seth (Max Theriot), 8 year-old Ninja-wanna-be Lulu (Morgan York), as well as 3 year-old Peter and baby Tyler - not to mention their off-beat Romanian Nanny (Carol Kane). But while drop zones, demolitions and destroying enemy targets come naturally to Shane, he has no idea what tough really is until he pits his courage against diapering, den-mothering and driver's education. He's truly a SEAL out of water, and now it's up to this one-time lone warrior to take on the most important mission of his life: keeping a family together.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, action star Vin Diesel's comic turn in The Pacifier was the big rage in home entertainment last week as the Buena Vista Home Entertainment comedy topped the sales and rental charts its first week in stores. The Pacifier, which grossed $112.5 million in theaters, is the third $100 million-plus comedy to hit video since April. The film topped VideoScan's First Alert sales chart for the week ending July 3 and Home Media Retailing's rental chart for the same week.
The big surprise, however, is the strong showing made by Tyler Perry's Diary of Mad Black Woman, from Lions Gate Entertainment. The film, which grossed slightly more than $50 million in theaters, finished a strong No. 2 on the preliminary national sales chart.Read More

The Pacifier recalls those old cheesy Saturday afternoon efforts in all their family-oriented glory.
The Pacifier is by far my favorite Vin Diesel movie. But like I said, I’m a sucker for decent Disney matinees. Movieweb was recently invited to cover the junket for this film. I was going to go, but MGM was holding a press conference right next door for Be Cool at the exact same time. Now, I’m many things, but I can’t be in two places at once. What did I do? Well, I sent one of our Soju After Movie contestants in my place. Her name is DMA. A wonderful girl, she was originally going to act as co-host of our On-Line radio show. After sitting with this fun bunch here, she mysteriously vanished. Even though I’ll probably never see her again, I am grateful that she was able to capture these live, streaming interviews for you, my brethren.Read More
A lot of people feel that I’m an insensitive (CENSORED), and rightfully so. These same jokers have recently called me out and chastised my “perceived” dialoguing. I guess there are certain words that I just shouldn’t say. No matter what. Tagged dioramas of a hateful nature never play nice, and I like to use them for more than shock value. I’m not allowed to call a (CENSORED) a (CENSORED). Nor am I allowed to call a (CENSORED) a (CENSORED) or a Jew. Oh, but they can call me anything they want to, and do. Fine, I’m all right with that. The thing that makes me angry is; I don’t hate any secular group (except for maybe the (CENSORED)s; that sh*t they did with the cats just aint right). I find language a fun and useful tool, especially when it comes to pushing people’s buttons. And it’s fun to watch unnamed individuals build up a certain type of disdain for any given nomenclature they might find distasteful. Recently, I was, dare I say, attacked for using the word “(CENSORED)”. I say it all the time, mostly as a friendly adverb to describe a colleague or associate. But this certain person decided I was a hatemonger and a closeted (CENSORED). I actually thought it was kind of funny, so I let it slip by without too much of a care.
My point is, yes, I say the word “(CENSORED)”. Frequently. But I’ve never gone on and on about someone’s (CENSORED) preference (until now, I guess). It seems that the people who have a problem with me saying this word the most have quite a few hang-ups of their own. I mean; they obviously care that (CENSORED) seems to be hiding in a perceived (CENSORED) somewhere on his days off. To me, (CENSORED) is a face on a billboard. He’s an advertisement. What the man behind the mask does on his vacation is his business. Why do you f*cking care? I guess you care for the exact same reasons why you care about me using filthy language and supporting a bad attitude. You want to prove to someone, somewhere, maybe (CENSORED) even, that you’re a decent, upstanding citizen who understands and sympathizes with the plight of the so-called downtrodden minority.Read More
