About the Movie

One son ... two fathers? Comic superstars Robin Williams and Billy Crystal star as prospective dads in search of the same runaway boy that each thinks may be his child. From director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters movies) comes the madcap comedy adventure Fathers' Day. Dale Putley (Williams--The Birdcage, Mrs. Doubtfire) and Jack Lawrence (Crystal--City Slickers films, When Harry Met Sally...) never met, yet they both share something in common: ex-girlfriend Colette (Nastassja Kinski). To enlist their aid in tracking down her missing son, Colette tells each of her dumbfounded ex-lovers that he fathered the child to which she gave birth 16 years ago. Inadvertently trapped on the road together, these two strangers grow even stranger as they engage in the hilarious hijinks that can only happen when it's Fathers' Day.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: I had the disquieting sensation not of seeing two funny men but of watching two comedians from a distant age go through the motions of what they, all evidence to the contrary, still believe to be funny. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 14, 2014

Rotten: Robin Williams and Billy Crystal can each provoke a lot more laughs in a minute of standup than they jointly manage during the entire running time of Fathers' Day. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 14, 2014

Rotten: Inoffensive, predictable, obvious, Fathers' Day is all the things a major studio comedy wants and needs to be. If you noticed that funny is not on the list, go to the head of the class. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jul 14, 2014

Rotten: Father's Day has a few laugh-out-loud sequences, but it's nothing to celebrate. – Carol Buckland,, Jul 14, 2014

Two great comedy legends finally together!

Ok I will admit this movie has many flaws, but come on, this is Robin Williams and Billy Crystal! Two great legends in comedy finally together. They are playing the characters that we always love to see them as: Robin Williams is his quirky, fun-loving, good-hearted self; and Billy Crystal is in his smart-a**, down-to-earth comedic style. Plus we get a hilarious cameo from Mel Gibson. This is the type of film I like to call "a guilty pleasure." Granted this isn't a great comedy classic like City Slickers or Mrs. Doubtfire, but this is definately at least worth the rent.

Father's Day

This movie has some great slap-stick scenes, plus the manic hilarity we all love from Robin Williams. Billy Crystal is great as the straight-arrow lawyer trying to reign in Williams, all the while getting caught up in some wild antics. Good supporting cast in Natasha Kinski and Julia Louis-Dryfus, and a very surprising not-to-miss view of Mel Gibson! Definitely worth purchasing this to add to your collection!
