Father's Day has a few laugh-out-loud sequences, but it's nothing to celebrate.

A movie of implacable unfunniness.

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.

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.

Add to these problems the fact that Fathers' Day is a comedy starring two reputedly hilarious people who don't make you laugh once, and you have a movie that would be great if everything about it weren't terrible.

Ivan Reitman directs Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel's adaptation like standard-issue sitcom, inviting Williams to pursue his usual overacting shtick.
