Neither karaoke with Come Sail Away... nor the appearance of Seth Rogen, keep [Like Father] from sinking. [Full review in Spanish]
December 22, 2018
A huge misstep for co-writer and director Lauren Miller Rogen, who probably made this lazy vanity project so the cast and crew could get a free Caribbean vacation.
December 12, 2018
First-time filmmaker Miller generally does an effective job of drawing the viewer into the less-than-innovative storyline...

Wanders aimlessly for much of the 95-minute running time.
August 29, 2018
Bell and Grammer's characters are so fuzzily rendered that they create no sparks when they butt heads in close quarters.
August 20, 2018
Like Father is not a radical or subversive family comedy, but the cast has good chemistry, the story moves along nicely, and the big, tear-jerking moments make an impact. By the end, it surpasses its modest ambitions.
August 20, 2018
A smooth and steady viewing experience that comfortably relies on its cast and confident storytelling to make for an enjoyable cinematic getaway.
August 16, 2018
A dramady about the difficulties of shucking resentment.
August 13, 2018
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.

Yes, this is familiar and predictable stuff for the most part, but it is well carried off for such undemanding fare (helped in no small part by Seth Rogen in a key supporting role).
August 10, 2018
I've never seen Kristen Bell more unlikable and Kelsey Grammer more likable ever until this movie.

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.

This is a fantasy for kids who've been abandoned and for some regretful parents this is a fantasy film, because it doesn't play out like that, there's a lot of trauma that you can never get past.

It's not the kind of trip you'll return to multiple times, but still one that you'll look back on fondly.
August 9, 2018
Once the setup is out of the way, Like Father settles into a nice rhythm.
August 7, 2018
Goodhearted but predictable father-daughter comedy; language
August 7, 2018
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 6, 2018
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
I'm not sure who first had the idea to fit a father/daughter drama into a rom-com casing but the result is very weird and very unfulfilling.
August 4, 2018
It's fun watching this estranged daughter and father begin to know each other again through crazy cruise activities, especially karaoke.
