Man of the House
Source: Catholic News Service
Dull and unfunny story of a divorced Texas Ranger (Tommy Lee Jones) who goes undercover with five cheerleaders to protect them after they witness a murder, and before long the girls are grooming him for a date with a college professor (Anne Archer), and helping him rescue his semiestranged daughter (Shannon Marie Woodward) from the clutches of a corrupt federal agent. Stephen Herek's film is an uneasy mix of violent -- though not especially exciting -- action, and labored comedy and sentiment, and, the mushy subplot of father and daughter bonding notwithstanding, presents a demeaning view of women, with the cheerleaders distastefully portrayed as aggressive, scantily clad "babes." Crude language, suggestive costuming, lewd posturing, violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
