DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY THIS! This dvd did not work in two dvd players and they charged me to return it, also they only give you half your money back if you've taken the plastic wrap off (which you have to to play it) and that's if they deem it. per their return policy in which I found out the hard way

Entertaining, certaninly rated this a 5 Star worth watching

I thought It would be a predictable story with a high profile actor. I was wrong, I went in with low expectations but found myself enjoying the movie. As a whole it was a good movie and entertaining. I might watch it again. I wish I could tell you the best part I liked, but that would be towards the ending.

Fun and entertaining

My girl friend and I liked this movie. A Texas Ranger LEO (Jones) must baby sit some cheer leaders after they witnessed a murder. The scene where he must go to the supermarket to buy plugs is priceless. Classy Anne Archer sparkles as she comes to assist him with his selection.

Another good comedy to watch.

This movie is one of those sleepers that you come across once in a while and when you done you say to yourself "hey I feel better for seeing that".

When I saw Tommy Lee Jones on the cover and what the name of the movie was, I knew that I was going to get a good and funny movie. The girls are nice to look at too! But, this is not a skin flick by any means.

And I has a little bit of a moral to it too, while the bad guys get theirs.

part drama, part comedy.
Verified purchase
This is an old favorite of mine. Equal parts Drama, Action, and Comedy it moves through the different sections fluently and never seems too much of any one thing. The characters evolve throughout the movie so you are sucked in to seeing how things will turn out. Good Family film.

Cute Tommy Lee Jones movie
Verified purchase
This is a really cute comedy/drama with what would seem a silly plot line. A group of Texas cheerleaders witness a murder and are put in protective custody. Ranger Tommy Lee Jones is there in the house for protection (and a couple of other guys are put in the frat house across the street to keep an eye on the place. The girls have different personalities and are always trying to break or bend Tommy's house rules. Lots of fun - protecting the girls during a rally and, well at any outing. Side stories of Tommy's estranged college-aged daughter and the girls trying to set him up with one of the teachers. In the end, the girls are a big factor in coming to the rescue and helping to catch the bad guy. A light-hearted romp.

A plain and simple good time
Verified purchase
This movie is a lot of fun, Tommy Lee Jones is as always at his best, although it could be said that this movie is not his best, and is also most certainly not his worst movie, but it is a movie that is just plain fun. The story is one that has been told many times yet, Jones gives it his own personal twist and a different kind of comedy, kind of the old deadpan one liners, but it works. The characters are interesting especially Cedric the entertainer and his cow. It is neither a fast movie nor is it a slow one, but just about right for this type of film. I would without reservation Recommend this movie
