As the old, apocryphal quote goes: "Every generation thinks they invented sex." The same can likely be said for the kind of ersatz rebellion celebrated in The Other F Word, a lightweight, frustratingly lazy documentary about punk-rock dads.
The film's juxtaposition of punk-rock fashion and cozy domesticity proves neither comic nor revelatory. It is, however, adorable, though not adorable enough to compensate for the film's damnable lack of focus.
As wonderful as it is to see the peace and happiness they've brought their dads, the real challenge for these men may come when the sweet tots who now look up to them grow into adolescents looking for authorities of their own to displace.
