Jack does whatever it takes to win Ben over. He even joins the Indian scouts, a group in which Ben feigns interest, which he expects will send Jack over the edge. Surprisingly, it has the opposite effect, Ben ends up looking forward to the adventures in the wild, especially a planned canoe trip. Unfortunately, it is the one time Jack does not show up ... convincing Ben, Jack is like his dad.
Bigger problems loom in th horizon for Jack, who is nearly killed by the son of a mob-type stalker and his buddies who are exacting revenge for having placed his father in jail. The climactic build up and suspense in the film is worth viewing for oneself. This is a family entertainment style film where all the problems are resolved in the end. The film is amusing and makes the viewer feel good. While much of the film is predictable, that is why it does not disappoint the viewer. Erika Borsos (erikab93)
It stars Chevy Chase, who IMHO has just gotten funnier over the years, and Jonathan Taylor Thomas (the star of Home Improvement) as nutty people saying the zaniest things. Disney scores another home run with Man of the House, and the comedy grabs you by the throat from the very first scene and never loosens its grip.
If you've never seen any Chevy Chase movies (and what's wrong with you, if so?!) then this is definitely the one to see. He is very, very sarcastic which is my sense of humor too, and he has some of the funniest faces and zingers that you'd ever want to see/hear. But he has definitely met his match with the kid from Home Improvement, who delivers wisecracks like kids always do. This kid is definitely going places and is by far my favorite person from Home Improvement, except for maybe Tim Allen and Wilson the neighbor.
Farrah Fawcett has never been more gorgeous and whimsical as she is in Man of the House, and what's so funny is that Chevy Chase wants to marry her, but the kid really doesn't want him too. So it's a lot like Home Alone, except instead of people wanting to burgle the home, this kid wants to keep the intruder (Chevy Chase, "Oh Heavenly Dog") away from his mom. And we can all relate to wanting to keep people away from Farrah Fawcett, so it's a comedy that makes you think.
This movie is probably going to make one of your top 10 lists, and it's so funny at times that you might need to excuse yourself from the room. But remember to pause lest you miss more great jokes and joke premises!
Man of the House? More like Comedy of the Year?!!!
