Yup, saw this movie, and I must say LG is stunning as always.
And finally got to see the kick she was talking about all the time!
I couldn't stop laughing though when I saw her actually execute it. She was like making all her "Eeyah" shouts, I dunno it just made me laugh like mad.

However her role here is sooooooo small.. But I would say a 100% increase from Sweet November.

I like only saw her for like 10 mins and the rest of the time I had to suffer seeing Vin on the screen. Okay I admit I'm not his fan and I have not watched his previous movies and I would never have watched this without LG inside.

Looking forward to seeing her on her next big screen gig. But I prefer GG 100 times better and her kissing SP and no one else.. Haha, okay I'm rambling, please ignore me.

Glenis thanks for the heads up - that's weird since I got that info from the Official Disney Site (Australia) *g* gotta love when the distributors even have it wrong

We've got ads for it now and I love that when it says the release date it says "School Holidays" so they're safe

I saw the film yesterday as part of the Incredibles / Pacifier double for $8

I liked it *g*

Yes that's true, its pretty exaggerated.
But I think I remember doing it when I was learning karate when I was a kid. However, nobody does that when they grow up.

But I was laughing the minute I knew LG was going to do her stunt scene soon. I just dunno why. My friends thought I was crazed..

he he one of my friends won a double pass to see the movie and is giving it to me - so I can take my nephew for free *g*

Here comes the Aussie *bad* reviews

Director: Adam Shankman (Bringing Down the House)
Starring: Vin Diesel, Lauren Graham, Brad Garrett, Carol Kane
Rating: *
Diesel fuelling no one

ON WHAT he goes through in The Pacifier, one can only assume Vin Diesel did something absolutely heinous in a previous life. And boy, is he paying for it now with this sub-Kindergarten Cop crapfest.
Fair play to Vinny D for stepping so far outside his comfort zone, and copping a 10-million-bucks-plus-change payday for doing so. But to keep his end of the bargain, the arrow-headed action man faces a barrage of pointless humiliations Arnie would never have let happen.
In the course of The Pacifier, Diesel's character, a Navy SEAL protecting some misbehaving moppets from terrorist assassins, is bitten three times. First by a duck, then by a Romanian housekeeper (Carol Kane) and finally, aw shucks, by the lurve bug (Lauren Graham of TV's The Gilmore Girls).
Vin must also make a face while changing a nappy, beat up a high school wrestling coach (Brad Garrett), train girl scouts in the martial arts, direct an amateur production of The Sound of Music and perform a spooky routine known as ``The Panda Dance''.
To be fair, all of this could be construed as funny if Diesel could somehow make comedy his friend.
But the two are not even on speaking terms and a shocking script ruins any chance of reconciliation.
Witness the scene where a curious child quite rightly inquires of Diesel, ``Why are your boobs so big?'' Now that line gets an OK laugh on its own, but what will be the chesty guy's response? Surely a punchline is at the ready and an even bigger chuckle as a result?
Not in this movie.
Some dead air is emitted from the Diesel exhaust and then The Pacifier keeps chugging along on its less-than-merry way.
If only a little time had been lavished on developing Diesel's joyless doofus of a character. A better move might have been to have the star simply reprise one of his earlier roles.
Placing The Pacifier's kids in the care of the speed freak from The Fast and the Furious, or the dude with the day-glo eyeballs from The Chronicles of Riddick, would have revved up this sputtering vehicle no end.
Note for parents: with a multitude of fight scenes and the unwelcome sight of guns being pulled on children, The Pacifier could well be the most violent film ever to be given a PG rating by Australian censors. There are far more appropriate options available for youngsters over the Easter holiday break.

*****

On a positive note the film's brought it over $US75 million in US - not so good news the previews here in Australia only brought in $AU115,647 (screen average of $AU820) - plus with the split release it probably won't go well here - we can hope a miracle occurs though and it surprises us all - won't know the full story until the week after April 7 when it opens in all markets in Australia.

Still looking on the bright side it has a genuine shot to hit $US100 million in US.

Hey guys!

I actually saw the movie today! My mom had free movie passes, and when she gets those, I always take my brother (he's ten). I asked what he wanted to see, and to my luck, he picked The Pacifier.

I thought it was a very cute movie. Loved seeing Lauren in it! Gotta love her "kick," haha. I cracked up at that part. For some reason, watching her in this movie made me realize just how much I love her. She's awesome.

It was funny, I have my brother brainwashed. At the end, he asked me, "Wasn't the one who played the principal from Gilmore Girls?" and I was surprised he knew that. He said that he noticed because at the end she was wearing a dress that looked like a dress she once wore on Gilmore Girls the one time he was watching it while I was watching. LOL. Crazy.

Well, I'm not surprised there isn't any LG in the trailers..

Even though she supposedly gets second billing. Her part is sooooo small.

All the focus will be on Vin or sadly, the kids.

The good thing is she's in a movie that has quite good results. So more people will at least know about LG.

My friend when I was visiting Ohio said she didn't know Lauren was in this movie and I had to tell her so she could see it.
