Man of the House

I watched this Saturday night, but didn't really post yesterday. I'm not normally big on Tommy Lee Jones movies, but this one sounded funny. Too bad it wasn't.

Jones' character, a sheriff, has to protect a group of five college cheerleaders because they saw a witness being killed. His cover is their assistant coach and the blurb from Netflix says he teaches them choreography. I thought that would be funny, but nobody teaches them choreography, they're already gyrating away in the kitchen while making lunch. The plot is pretty predictable.

And then there's the character added in, I assume, to make younger folks want to watch. Cedric the Entertainer plays a former-convict pastor and he has scenes at the opening, the middle, and the end. The middle one, he dances against the cheerleaders, and they're much better, of course. His picture is on the DVD and I wondered if Netflix sent me the wrong disc, but no.

The only really good part about this movie is that Jones' character is enamored with a character within at least two decades of his age.
