Like Father

Critics Consensus

Like Father unites an alarmingly talented cast for a predictable rom-com that does nothing to counter the negative stereotypes surrounding the genre.

  • Bell and Grammer's characters are so fuzzily rendered that they create no sparks when they butt heads in close quarters.

  • These are two phenomenal performers giving their all to a sharp family drama disguised as an outrageous cookie-cutter comedy. I had no idea how much Like Father was something I needed.

  • There is an element with early onset Alzheimer's, that in the film feels very wedged in like as the emotional underpinning that they are going for which explains certain people's actions.

    August 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • Clearly, given its algorithmic knowledge, Netflix knows things we don't... It doesn't quite explain why a film so willing to check all the comedy-cliché boxes would commit to humor least of all, particularly given how well standard fare can do.

    August 7, 2018 | Full Review…
  • These flaws might be more banal, if not more forgivable, had the film not seemingly had its own ulterior motive for entering your living room. Unfortunately, branding plays a far more significant role than any of the human supporting characters.

    August 6, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's a predictable comedy of reconciliation. But it boasts substantial pleasures, largely on account of the performers.
