For the comic actors, this project -- an enjoyable synthesis of improvisation and adherence to the original story -- seems almost too easy. You wonder why it took them so long.

Williams and Crystal often supply, through their ad libs, what the writers may have left out.

Despite some laughs, there's not much of a story. But at least Williams and Crystal, old pals off the screen, seem to be enjoying themselves.

Williams and Crystal find their own rhythm with the material and deliver some much needed laughs.

Thankfully low on sentimentality, director Reitman gives the two stand-up talents a pretty free rein, resulting in some classic comic moments and snappy one-liners.

Writers Ganz and Mandell go pleasingly light on the syrup and sentimentality.

Crystal and Williams are a must-see match

There are some slow patches and formulaic touches, but that's a fair trade for the fun of watching Mr. Williams and Mr. Crystal make an irresistible comic team.

Father's Day is a mildly humorous comedy that, though enjoyable, doesn't quite live up to the talents of its cast.

I did laugh. Williams and Crystal can make almost always make me laugh. But there is nothing in Father's Day that you can't find better somewhere else.

No masterpiece but undeniably heavy on laughs, the movie is put over by the buffed, lubricated dynamics of two leads who substantially transcend what is otherwise a borderline tepid dose of family values.

There's plenty of missed comic opportunities, but plenty that hit dead-on -- especially a notable, heavily-pierced cameo (watch for it!).

It's that predictable sweetness that makes any of this more than just bearable.

Father's Day has a few laugh-out-loud sequences, but it's nothing to celebrate.
July 14, 2014
A movie of implacable unfunniness.

Hey, it sounded good on paper.

There is something faintly depressing about seeing an inspired comedian like Robin Williams and a clever one like Billy Crystal starring in a movie that might just as well have been based on My Two Dads.

Fans of Crystal and Williams certainly will enjoy the pairing, but this is far from their most inspired work.
