The Game Plan (2007)

I figured The Game Plan would be just another run-of-the-mill Disney flick, but I was pleasantly surprised. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson plays a self-absorbed quarterback who is confronted with a young daughter he didn't know he had. The film plays out fairly predictably - big tough guy learning to like ballet, obligatory messy kitchen scene, last minute sports comeback - but it all works together in quite a satisfying way. Very family friendly. All of my kids, from age 6 to 13 were engaged with this movie from the beginning. My sensitive 11 year old was in tears at one point and laughing hysterically at many others. I recommend it for families with kids of all ages.
