There's 6 of them, but here's an example that reminded me of Jimmy's rant last week about 'Parenthood,' etc.:

Ultra-Masculine Action Star Gets Stuck With Small Child or Children


Who's Doing It Next: In The Game Plan, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson plays Joe Kingman, a successful quarterback who's whole bachelor lifestyle gets turned around when he finds out (gasp) he has a seven-year-old daughter! No professional athlete has ever balanced his career AND a family. This should get pretty wild, folks!

Who Did It Best: Kindergarten Cop. Maybe because it was one of the first of its kind, or maybe it's because Schwarzenegger, with his enormous arms, indecipherable accent and near-constant shouting, is just so naturally frightening that you better believe his little co-stars were crying in between takes. We wouldn't be surprised if some of them still have nightmares about the giant, gibberish-spewing Frankenstein that, for a few months, spent every single day screaming at them.

Who Did It Worst: The Pacifier.

Those are some good ones.. I was just thinking about this also when I saw a preview for the new Catherine Zeta Jones Movie where she is a cook.

Formula is Career oriented woman who get stucks with a kid that she is not capable of caring for but in the end makes it worth.. Guess it doesn't have to be a woman with movies like Big Daddy and Jersey Girl..

Couldn't agree more with most of those, especially the little kid one, and the black one. Although Trading Places and The Good Son were pretty sweet movies, the rest of that type generally blow cock.

I gotta agree with everything in this article.

But he forgot #7.


Childhood memory gets reborn in CGI format, completely lacks plot, depth and originality. But the children love it!

See: Underdog, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc

Mr. Mom is a classic. The man trying to be the homemaker has only gotten worse with time. Kindergarten Cop is the est of the genre though.

These guys didn't give the nod to How High? That was the worst of the genre for whites meets blacks.

I can't believe they had Fatherhood as one of the ultra-masculine actors given kids category. This has Patrick Swayze on it, I certainly wouldn't call Patrick Swayze ultra masculine by any means.
