After saving the world from the latest emergent megalomaniac eventually becomes childs play, movie tough guys like to tackle something really challenging - kids.
Vin Diesel tries his hand at it in The Pacifier in which he plays Navy SEAL, Shane Wolfe (now theres a name with a growl to it). As a member of the worlds most highly trained force, hes a guy who lives for danger, but not everything always goes as planned even for men like Wolfe. During an assignment to rescue an American scientist from his captors, he is surprised by an attack in which the scientist is killed.
The scientist was working on vital government secrets, which, it seems, have been hidden somewhere in the house where his family lives - and the enemy knows it. Wolfes latest mission is to protect the scientists kids from the forces of evil.
While keeping the bad guys at bay, he also has to face the equally challenging task of looking after a rebellious teen, Zoe (Brittany Snow), a sullen 14-year-old, Seth (Max Theriot), an 8-year-old Ninja wanna-be, Lulu (Morgan York) and 3-year-old Peter and baby, Tyler. The danger zone also includes Helga (Carol Kane) a weird Romanian Nanny who leaves in a huff because of the kids bad behaviour. With their mother, Julie (Faith Ford) also out of the picture when she is called to Switzerland, Wolfe finds himself taking sole charge of the kids and facing a domestic disaster. For the first time, hes a SEAL who is feeling the heat and way out of his depth.
