Disgraced Navy SEAL Shane Wolf (Diesel) is handed a new assignment: Protect the five Plummer kids from enemies of their recently deceased father — a government scientist whose top-secret experiment remains in the kids’ house

Dove Review

A Navy SEAL, Shane, has been assigned a job to protect five children while their mother leaves town for a few days to find what her late husband has left for her. Shane doesn’t realize exactly how hard it is to take care of five children, especially when the previous babysitter quits working with him. He gets the kids in line and shows them who is boss after they tried to get rid of him by purposely losing tracking devices he gave each kid. But in the end all his hard work and discipline pays off and the kids learn to love and respect him. This is a great movie with a lot of funny parts. Instead of having a family guard dog- they have a duck. When the previous babysitter tries to leave the house after she tells Shane she quits,. He tries everything to get her to stay such as dragging her back in the house, pulling on her suitcase, and lifting her up so she won’t leave. Another funny part is when Shane has to change the baby’s diaper for the first time, and he has no clue what he is doing. He takes the diaper off and rinses the babys bottom in the toilet water. It’s a funny family movie and Dove approved.
