The Pacifier is an action-comedy film directed by Adam Shankman and starring Vin Diesel, Brittany Snow, and Max Thieriot. The movie hit theaters in 2005 and was produced by Disney. The story follows Shane Wolfe (Vin Diesel), a tough Navy SEAL who is assigned to protect the family of a deceased scientist. The family consists of the mother, Julie Plummer (Faith Ford), and her five children: Seth (Max Thieriot), Zoe (Brittany Snow), Lulu, Peter, and Baby Tyler.

Shane initially thinks the job will be easy but soon discovers the family is not an easy one to manage. The oldest son, Seth, is a rebel who constantly defies his authority, while Zoe is struggling with her own problems at school, such as being bullied by the popular girls.

As Shane tries to protect the family from outside threats, including a group of masked men who are after a secret project the scientist was working on, he also has to deal with the chaos inside the house. He becomes the primary caretaker of the children, taking on tasks such as driving them to school, cooking dinner, and even coaching the school's talent show.

Throughout the movie, Shane starts to bond with the children, especially Zoe, who he helps gain confidence and stand up to her bullies. Along the way, Shane also learns a valuable lesson about family and the importance of being there for one another.

The movie features a mix of action and comedy, with Diesel's character providing plenty of tough-guy moments while also showing a softer side as he bonds with the children. The younger actors, including Brittany Snow and Max Thieriot, also deliver strong performances, making the Plummer children a believable and likable bunch.

Overall, The Pacifier is an entertaining family movie that offers a blend of action, humor, and heartwarming moments. It's a fast-paced adventure that will keep viewers engaged from start to finish.

The Pacifier is a 2005 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.6 and a MetaScore of 30.
