I realize Walt Disney Pictures markets for the family, but is necessary to dumb down the story this much?

The Pacifier -- cute and cuddly, mind-numbing, cotton candy guaranteed to pacify everyone in the family.
December 28, 2010
A crass, crude, and overly-familiar comedy.
April 29, 2009
Though it does have a talented cast with occasionally charming moments, it's still bad, and brainless.
October 18, 2008
It might have been a good career move for Diesel, who cut his teeth on high-octane action, but the script needs a lift and the direction feels lackluster.
August 7, 2008
Diesel has amply shown his star presence already, and he may even have a flair for comedy (if Hulk Hogan did, why shouldn't he?), but he gets no chance to prove it here.

Per its title, The Pacifier will lull you to sleep.
November 1, 2006
It's almost as if the writers got carried away with brainstorming all the funny things they could do with Vin Diesel's character.

At one point, Diesel literally wades into a rancid sewer and emerges covered in feces, an image that sadly doubles as a metaphor for his career.

a nice, safe family film

Frankly, to call The Pacifier a "cookie cutter" movie is an insult to the folks who actually make cookie cutters.
July 5, 2005
The film doesn't succeed on any level.
July 4, 2005
I realize this is The Pacifier and not Vera Drake, but how this film strains credulity smacks of contempt for a paying audience
June 28, 2005
Children under the age of 12 and teenagers who never set foot in a library might get some cheap thrills out of this refuse.
June 25, 2005
Fails on both an emotional and comedic level.
June 23, 2005
The Pacifier is typically Disney: non-offensive to the point of banality.
June 18, 2005
...perfect for less-discriminating viewers, and those who just want a 98-minute respite from using their brain.
June 7, 2005
The good news is that the film accelerates just when Vin Diesel's acting ability starts to wane.
June 2, 2005
Just funny enough to recommend and it has a lot of heart.
