Ah, the Fish Out Of Water story. White kid in a black neighborhood. Poor kid in a rich family. Cool guy with a bunch of nerds. Or, in the case of “Man of the House” (2005), straight-arrow Texas Ranger Tommy Lee Jones stuck with a quintet of flaky Longhorns cheerleaders. And wouldn’t you know it, hijinks ensue and everyone learns a little something about themselves. Along the way, several people get shot, a meth lab and a van blow up (two different blow-ups, the lab wasn’t in the van – this isn’t “Breaking Bad”) and a tour bus crashes. Yee haw!
