Critic Reviews for Like Father
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.

It's a predictable comedy of reconciliation. But it boasts substantial pleasures, largely on account of the performers.
Bell and Grammer are wonderful playing off one another. Funny when the moment calls for funny, authentic and believable when the moment calls for substantive drama.
