Most of the characters may be trapped in programmed spontaneity, but you can get a real lift out of the landscapes, the crisp sunlight splayed over gas stations and billboards, and the cannonade of '50s and '60s rock oldies.
Father Hood isn't so much undemanding as vapid, disjointed rather than antic. And if this film is a romp, then so is bearbaiting.
Despite its best intentions, Father Hood is destined to become leftovers in the video store.
It does suggest, ultimately, that if more wards of the state would run off to join their fathers on cross-country crime sprees, we could lick these corrupt foster-care and inattentive-dad problems.
The movie develops a hopelessly split personality.
A train wreck from start to finish.
Basically adequate yet completely forgettable...
If Swayze's performance is thin, that's nothing compared to the vapid logic that propels Father Hood.
While not a classic, Father Hood does offer a fairly exciting crime spree neutered into fun for the entire family.
A story of mixed messages that focuses on contempt for the law, legal authority and public safety, it attempts to garner sympathy -- and, unfortunately, laughs -- during a violent cross-country pursuit.
The terrible problem with "Father Hood" is that no one involved seemed to have any idea of what kind of movie it should be, and one feels their conflicting visions at play throughout.
Ah yes, the Patrick Swayze family comedy.
Patrick Swayze is funny and believable in a role that seems to have been fashioned out of cardboard.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
