Movie Info

Punk rock dad: an oxymoron? The Other F Word, with charm and wit, explores the bizarre transformation of punk rockers (featuring Pennywise's Jim Lindberg, whose anthem is "F--- Authority") into soccer dads. The L.A. punk scene's leading men - among them Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Ron Reyes (Black Flag), Mark Hoppus (Blink 182), Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), and Fat Mike (NOFX) - open up about their troubled childhoods and how, today, they balance profane rage with being conscientious parents.-- (C) Oscilloscope

  • There are delicious contrasts between the musicians in full-on punk-rock mode and in full-on dad mode.

  • Blink-182's Mark Hoppus has an especially good line about the all-consuming nature of being a pop: "It's like red matter from Star Trek. It just sucks everything in."

  • These cute little domestic interludes give The Other F Word a light humor and large awwwww factor that's unavoidable, understandable and entirely un-punk.

  • For the most part the film is an interesting, and occasionally fascinating, look at getting older and taking on responsibility.

    Nov 17, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Lindberg's throwaway self-description of himself as getting by during a tour "on Ambien and hair dye'' may be the best line in a movie full of good ones.

    Nov 10, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite a few genuinely poignant moments (try not to be moved as Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea talks of righting his parents' wrongs) and a bit of humor, F Word feels shallow and a little stale.
