Man of the House (DVD, 2005)

Stephen Herek, Tommy Lee Jones|Theatrical release: 2005 | Rating: PG-13 (MPAA)

Movie synopsis

A startling mixture of giggling T&A, old man/young girl bonding, bloody violence, and gross-out humor, this drama-action-comedic soufflé could comes courtesy director Stephen Herek (MISTER HOLLAND'S OPUS, THE MIGHTY DUCKS). Cedric the Entertainer has a great bit as an ex-con who helps the ladies with some hip hop dance moves. Anne Archer plays the ranger's older love interest. And the lascivious, multi-ethnic lovelies are played by Christina Milian, Kelli Garner, Monica Keena, Paula Garces, and Vanessa Ferlito.Tommy Lee Jones stars in this action-comedy as a tough old Texas Ranger who winds up babysitting a squadron of cheerleaders when they inadvertently witness a gangster's murder. His no-nonsense ways clash with the girls' fun-filled lifestyle at first: he makes them wear seatbelts, confiscates their cell phones, beats up on any guy who comes near them (including an awestruck pizza delivery boy) and makes sure no one sneaks out of the house on dates. Eventually he discovers the girls aren't as ditzy as they first appear. They get him to loosen up a little, and even help him to patch things up with his neglected daughter (Shannon Marie Woodward). Meanwhile a crooked federal agent is out the send the girls to an early grave. MAN OF THE HOUSE was filmed in and around the University of Texas.

Editorial reviews

"[A] good-natured comedy....Director Stephen Herek keeps things moving and throws in some lively action sequences but keeps the emphasis on the amusing and affectionate relationships between Jones and the girls."
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas (02/28/2005)

"[L]ikeable, evincing a playfulness towards some of the genre's most familiar tropes....[Jones] pitches himself into self-parody with remarkable vigour."
Sight and Sound - Jonathan Barnes (06/01/2005)

Man of the House - 2005 DVD

Created: 24/06/08
Man of the House is a 2005 comedy crime film starring Tommy Lee Jones as a Texas Ranger. This is one of the funninest comedy movies I have watch. Tommy Lee Jones is Sharp who is given the thankless task protecting a group of cheerleaders, who have witnessed a murder. Sharp moves in with the girls and the two young FBI men with him move into the fraternity house across the street, where they end up busting a drug deal. Sharp sets some ground rules, including no cell phones. He also tells them to "cover up in his presence" referring to the girls' revealing clothes. When they refuse, he orders an air conditioner, forcing them to dress warmly. Sharp is posing as a cheerleading coach specializing in conditioning, and at a football game he tackles an opposing team's mascot when the mascot approaches the girls with a gun, later revealed to be a water gun. Other humorous mishaps occur (I’m not telling) but Sharp's relationship with the girls begins to strengthen. Much of the movie was shot in Austin, Texas on the University of Texas campus. Texas Governor Rick Perry has a cameo appearance in the film as himself. The movie is rated PG-13 for violence, sexual content, crude humor, and a drug reference.

Brand New Man of the House 2005 DVD - great movie!!!!!!

Created: 30/01/08
I love this movie. This is probably one of the best comedies that I have seen. It has a little bit of romance, humor, and action/violence. This movie is about a cop who has to watch/baby-sit five teenage cheerleaders who witnessed a gangster murder. It is a very hard task since the only thing that all the girls want to do is go out and PARTY instead of staying in the house. This movie kept me laughing the entire time. But I do enjoy the ending when the five cheerleaders help Tommy Lee Jones reunite with his daughter. I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone, especially the women, but I do think that this movie is definitely a chick flick.

What Happened Tommy Lee?

Created: 13/10/06
Remember Tommy Lee Jones? I sure do! The Missing, The Fugitive, Blue Sky, Coal Miner's Daughter, JFK - heck, even Men in Black. Tommy Lee Jones is the best silent/cynical/sarcastic tough guy who actually has a sense of humor in Hollywood. So why is he in this movie?

The premise has been done many, many times before - group of girls witness a murder and he is in charge of protecting them until the guy is caught. Lots of giggling and lessons learned. he learns how to relate to his daughter and the girls learn responsibility.

Good if you have nothing to watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon but for that watching something with some substance or for funny/sarcastic Tommy Lee watch Men in Black.

Cheerleaders and a Texas Ranger

Created: 24/01/07
Tommy Lee Jones as a Texas Ranger. Then add five high-strung cheerleaders. Funny and yet on the edge. When the cheerleaders witness a killing he is assigned to protect them. Of course they fight him along the way. One cheerleader develops a crush on him. Another becomes a friend while the other 3 just try to put up with him. When he has a date they all pitch in and help him to get the lady. The killer finds out about the witnesses and he tries every way to get at them. Watch this to find out how this ends.

Man of the House (DVD, 2005)

This movie could easily be renamed Every Middle Aged Mans Dream. Roland Sharp (Tommy Lee Jones) is a fifty something year old, no-nonsense Texas Ranger who has been assigned to protect five beautiful young cheerleaders from the University of Texas who witnessed a murder. A female Ranger was shot and killed in an operation to protect a witness, and then the witness is was killed. Sharp and his men have been assigned to protect the lives of these girls who witnessed the murder, and who's lives are now in danger. Under the disguise of a cheer coach, Roland moves into a house babysitting these beautiful babes. It is a total culture clash with this older man in such close contact with these young girls. Little things like running around half dressed, super comfortable clothing, you know, the kind of thing that would make an older man go nuts! Sharp must see that they are escorted to classes, no cell phones, no dates, or contact with boyfriends, etc. He is looked upon ad a hero by the pizza delivery guy who cant believe that anyone could be so lucky to live with this bevy of girls. Through cheer class and peprallies, and football games they must be protected and their identities protected. Sharp gets asked out by a lady professor, Molly (Anne Archer) and he need a lot of help on how to act. The girls take him on as a project trying to play matchmaker. Another cop, a young FBI man, who was a friend of Sharp, goes after Sharp's seventeen year old daughter. There was a large amount of money confiscated by Sharp and his guys, and this FBI guy is dirty and wants the money. To get his daughter back, he has to go to the border and give him the money. The girls all spring into action to help. Showing off their athletic abilities and a lot of spunk, they slow the process down enough for Sharp to bust the guy and save his daughter too. Sharp and Molly are married at the end of the movie.This was a cute movie and a lot of fun. The girls were also very easy on the eye too! You'll like this one.
