Now that he seems to be tired of raking in the dough as the star of the highly successful teevee series Everybody Loves Raymond, Ray Romano does what he's supposed to do and gets ready to rake in the dough as the star of a major motion picture with a big, accomplished, successful movie star (Gene Hackman), not-so-big stars who are doing OK (Marcia Gay Harden, Christine Baranski, Fred Savage, Rip Torn), and a buncha extras and some cute animals in this utterly mind-numbing mediocrity. This is a prime example of What's Wrong With Hollywood, and if you go and pay money to see this movie, you're part of the problem. Single redeeming value: possible injection of the phrase "booty poodle" into contemporary popular lexicon.
