Editorial Reviews

When five perky cheerleaders witness the murder of a drug bust informant, they require 'round-the-clock surveillance to keep from being the next victims. Enter tough-as-nails Texas Ranger Lt. Roland Sharp (Tommy Lee Jones), who masquerades as their assistant coach and camps out in their campus digs. But these feisty foxes just want to have fun, and the buttoned-down Sharp learns it's no easy taskto keep the uncontrollable coeds in line and out of harm's way. Cedric the Entertainer joins this spirited cast in a comedy that busts out with high energy, pride, and the joy of a Texas Ranger getting in touch with his feminine side.

This movie is about a bunch of cheerleaders that witness a murder that Tommy Jones has to take care of. The girls always walk around in short clothes and Tommy struggles with the concept of he has to live with these women cheerleaders and he also cant find a way to talk to his daughter and these cheerleaders help him do that. and Also help him with a date he has. If you like that type of stuff this movie is for you. Its funny to me but everyone has an opinion

I saw the film because of Tommy Lee Jones and it didn't disappoint a moment. The movie was fast paced with a great music score.

Tommy Lee Jones ended up babysitting 5 cheerleaders as a witness protection programme after the 5 witnessed the murder of a witness of an important criminal case. The 5 girls were positive, not a bit dumb and supported one another all along. How they inspired Tommy Lee Jones to transform from a man who could not express his feelings publicly as a Dad, a lover and a coach into a lovable guy was actually the main theme. Tommy Lee Jones was a natural in the movie. He played his role effortlessly and was so convincing as a straight and competent cop. The 5 girls had great dance sequences and personalities. I liked Christina Milian best among the girls. Her dance was dynamic and energetic. Anne Archer was the credible love interest and I wished her part could be bigger.

The one scene that I couldn't help laughing aloud was when Cedric the Entertainer danced against the 5 girls, trying to perform his old school style of cheer leader dancing. What a hilarious arrangement! If you want to relax and have fun, take this movie.

Tommy Lee Jones executive produced this surprisingly charming movie. When I saw the trailer, I thought this would be a fluff police partner movie that takes place in a sorority house. I was wrong. Tommy Lee Jones plays a Texas Ranger whose partner, a young woman Texas Ranger, is shot during a mission to bring back a witness to testify against a powerful criminal. When the witness escapes and gets killed in an alley, Tommy Lee must protect the only witnesses to this crime - 5 cheerleaders from A&M University. They are everything he isn't - young, girlish, fun-loving, and peppy. That's where the humor lies. But because of Tommy Lee Jones' daddy-like wisdom and perspective, this movie does not turn into another teen comedy. It becomes more of an eye-opening look at generational differences, cheerleader stereotypes, police stereotypes, and honor. Not much publicity surrounds this movie so it will fall under the radar. Nonetheless, if you want to see a movie of substance, but still get some elements of contemporary Hollywood movie themes - great-looking actors, action, humor, and a love story, then see this movie. It is better than the trailer.

I really expected the first 15 minutes to be humorous with cute jokes based on the obvious contrasts between the looks and demeanor of Tommy Lee Jones and a group of big-time cheerleaders who are all female, but it stays funny and actually has substance woven into it. I am not a professional reviewer so I can't dissect this movie to explain why it works. Could it be that Tommy Lee Jones and Ann Archer are good at their chosen careers? While certainly cute and funny, the cheerleaders were just serious enough not to make a mockery of the movie's concept.

True, the story line seems to blend the babes in the pom-pom girl team and the gymnists of the cheerleader squad into one group, but that's Hollywood.

And, just for the record: the school in question is NEITHER Texas A&M nor Texas State (both fine schools) but the University of Texas...Longhorns...that's why there are longhorns painted on the girls' cheeks and just about everywhere the camera points in Austin, Texas, where the campus of the University of Texas is located. That's why so many people in the movie are seen holding their hands in an otherwise very curious display of fingers. And, that's why the colors burnt orange and white are awash on screen.

For those outside of Texas or those who don't like college sports, this movie would probably rate 3-stars, but I gave it 4 stars to account for a 1-star bonus directed to all those viewers who do like college athletics or have any interest in Texas or Big 12 programs.

Tommy Lee Jones is one of the best actors out there today. What makes him so great is his dry humor. He can look and act serious even during the funniest moments, making him the funniest character in most of his films. With "Man of the House," Mr. Jones brings this talent into a new arena: the cheerleader film.

"Man of the House" would be a drab if not for Jones. The girls are funny at times, as is Cedric the Entertainer. But it is Jones, and Jones alone, that makes this film as good as it is.

If you enjoy the works of Tommy Lee Jones, then this film is definitely for you!

This movie is one of those sleepers that you come across once in a while and when you done you say to yourself "hey I feel better for seeing that".

When I saw Tommy Lee Jones on the cover and what the name of the movie was, I knew that I was going to get a good and funny movie. The girls are nice to look at too! But, this is not a skin flick by any means.

And I has a little bit of a moral to it too, while the bad guys get theirs.
