the student driver teacher with Brittany Snow.
Errors in geography:
The US Government car used in the last car chase has a speedometer where the large numbers are in kilometers per hour, and the small ones in MPH, consistent with this film actually being filmed in Canada but not correct for a US Government car.

Good night, Daddy!
Hey, this was really fun
Okay, sometimes I think the critics are all single "non-family" people.
I just got back from viewing this movie with 7 adults and 11 children.
It was wonderful to watch the kids giggle and hurrah at Vin Diesel,
tough guy, nice guy, real softie routine. Whether he was kicking bad
guys or changing diapers, he was great. While there were many clichés
and material we've all seen in other forms, we sometime forget that
this stuff works. My child is 8 and this is fresh to him. I'm so please
that we were able to bring 18 people of varying ages who all had a good
time. I say forget the negatives and focus on what we sometimes forget,
an afternoon or evening with you kids is the best pacifier.
