Critic Reviews for Father Figures
Father Figures is not just painfully anti-charming, it is transparently desperate.
"Father Figures" is what happens when you throw a comedy and the laughs forget to show up.
Distinguished mainly by its overqualified cast and lack of inspiration, "Father Figures" can't decide whether it's a gross-out comedy or an uplifting tale of brotherly love; it embraces the worst of both worlds.
At first [Helms and Wilson] seem incompatible. But their journey through family secrets delivers surprising charm.
Director Sher shows no special affinity for comic pacing or enlivening dialogue scenes, so the movie just plods from scene to scene, building no momentum.
Audience Reviews for Father Figures
LAW & ORDER: SVU is used as the pivotal plot device that sets everything in motion. It's the best joke in the movie.
Another typical roadtrip movie where two brothers go searching for their long lost father. Perfectly passable for passing the time. Nothing more. You've seen it all before really.
The cast is the only thing that holds Father Figures together, but it doesn't do it for long. It's just a bad movie.
