My Penny of View : This film was directed by same director for Wild Hogs-Walt Becker. Story was about the two best friends and partners-Dan and Charlie who were enjoying their single and available life. One day, Dan old fling-Vicki showed up with a pair of twins and claimed he was the father of the children. Due to Vicki's best friend involved in an accident, she can't take care of the children while Vicki away for two weeks jail, Dan decided to take care of the children with the help from Charlie. Meantime, Dan and Charlie were handling the biggest deals of their career with the Japanese. Therefore, during the presence of the children, many things happened and change Dan and Charlie's life perception. So it began these two old dogs' adventure into parenthood, hitting on women and running their business.

The funniest moment was when the mix up of pills for Dan and Charlie, both of them ended up with different reactions including big appetite, facial twitches and contortions, and the lack of psycho-motor skills on a golf course. In the extended scene, again the pills has been mix up, all of them having the joker smile. Another memorable scene when Seth Green baby hug by the animatronic gorilla. Photobucket

This movie is a typical parents and children films with the former group put into difficult situations and have a happy ending ripe with many comedic moments. Themes like the importance of family and friendship are Disney's usual morale of the story. It told us that not to focus on one important things in our life because there are many important things such as family, love and health. Once you miss it, the life will just pass by.

Rating :
★★★☆☆
