Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the most valuable player here, revealing impressive comic chops and megawatt charisma even while serving as a human punchline for many of the pic's predictable sight gags...

The movie is so likable that it glides over its many plot holes... The film’s direction, by Andy Fickman, is raucous but never crass, and the affable Mr. Johnson is committed to every moment...

A throwback to the days when Disney would recruit second- and third-tier stars to stroll through indifferently written, modestly produced comic fluff that served as family entertainment...

The two best things about this logic-challenged, predictable and overlong (110 minutes!) film are The Rock's performance - surely he's one of the more likable people in the movies, and here he handles physical sight gags with aplomb; and the parallel disciplines of football and ballet, which provide a way for father and daughter to understand each other...

This film is an interesting exercise in keeping everyone happy. There's ballet for the girls, football for the boys, plenty of shots of The Rock without his shirt on for the mums, and a hot ballet teacher for the dads. It relies on being cute and although Johnson should be applauded for having fun with the role, the story is too contrived and predictable to take to heart...

This is frothy, light and predictable fun, right down to the inevitable ticker-tape freeze frame hug at the finale...
