Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the most valuable player here, revealing impressive comic chops and megawatt charisma even while serving as a human punchline for many of the pic's predictable sight gags...

This film is an interesting exercise in keeping everyone happy. There's ballet for the girls, football for the boys, plenty of shots of The Rock without his shirt on for the mums, and a hot ballet teacher for the dads. It relies on being cute and although Johnson should be applauded for having fun with the role, the story is too contrived and predictable to take to heart...
