THE PACI­FIER (2005) 7MATE, 6.30PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Flex­ing his comic mus­cle for the first time, Vin Diesel goes the Big Arnie route – a la Kin­der­gartenCop – in a for­mu­laic fam­ily out­ing. Diesel is Lt Shane Wolfe, a hulk­ing, no-non­sense Navy SEAL or­dered to watch over and pro­tect the five chil­dren of a pro­fes­sor (re­spon­si­ble for su­per-se­cret de­fence soft­ware) who was killed on Wolfe’s last mis­sion. Fishout-of-water gags abound as Wolfe deals with dirty nap­pies, snooty teach­ers, rowdy teen par­ties, bul­ly­ing boy scouts and other haz­ards, all the while pro­tect­ing his charges from some dex­ter­ous nin­jas. TV iden­ti­ties Faith Ford, Lau­ren Gra­ham and Brad Gar­rett co-star. ★★✩
