Critic Reviews for Paternity

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (3)

  • Although the movie was directed by David Steinberg, a comic actor with a good sense of timing, Paternity's timing is so slowpaced and stately that there are times when this doesn't feel like a comedy, it feels like a historical romance.

  • It's one of the worst movies [Reynolds has] ever made and, worse, he isn't even good in it.

    October 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Burt is at his most appealing and self-deprecating playing a character much like himself at the time: A single, middle-age lothario longing to have a child. Charming and funny.

    I have a seen a ton of Burt Reynolds movies but everyone I've seen he's always playing a tough guy or something similar so watching him in a romantic comedy was a shocker.Not a bad movie by the way but not really something I'd go out & buy or watch again
