Fathers And Daughters Reviews

July 27, 2018
While this section of the movie can be both moving and powerful, a second storytelling timeline tracking the difficult life facing Jake's daughter (played by Amanda Seyfried) a few decades later is not so successful.

Fathers And Daughters is a mawkish melodrama that, despite a starry cast, has little to recommend it.

I've always thought Russell Crowe would make a rather crazy but loving dad.

There are no car chases, super heroes or explosions in 'Fathers & Daughters.' Just lots of bravery, tenderness and tears.

Might as well have been titled "Daddy Issues: The Movie."
July 8, 2016
Well-acted drama about emotional trauma has sex, drinking.

If it didn't so obviously want to be a Serious Adult Drama, leaned into its own melodrama with zest, it could have been pretty good.

Even as I knew I was being manipulated - and what art doesn't manipulate? - I was moved.
July 7, 2016
As the movie jounces along on florid pronouncements that overstate the obvious, "Fathers and Daughters" defies credibility and insults the intelligence.
July 7, 2016
Before excess suffocates the movie, there's a sharp sense of loss that carries significant power, almost able to buttress the entire effort.

"Fathers and Daughters" juggles too many plotlines ...
July 7, 2016
A cloying, on-the-nose family drama that fails to pack an emotional punch.
July 7, 2016
It's extremely saccharine and obvious in its progression.
July 7, 2016
Fathers And Daughters attacks the base urge for sentimental gratification as though it were on a suicide mission.

The word for Fathers and Daughters is anguish-for everyone on the screen and in the audience, too.
July 6, 2016
Fathers and Daughters would be a far more intriguing film if it painted Katie as something more than a quick psychological study and didn't rely on sexist platitudes.
July 5, 2016
The film's weird reformulation of the Electra complex is nothing short of a sexist fantasy of salvation.
July 5, 2016
A sensitive drama about cutting loose a cumbersome emotional ball and chain.
July 2, 2016
Sad and soapy.

Despite a starry cast it's just another cloying sap fest.
