Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Distinguished mainly by its overqualified cast and lack of inspiration, "Father Figures" can't decide whether it's a gross-out comedy or an uplifting tale of brotherly love; it embraces the worst of both worlds.
Rotten: A limply spritzing fountain of unconvincing (and unfunny) tricks out of the how-to-write-a-comedy-hit manual.
Rotten: Who's your daddy? Who cares.
Rotten: Comedian Katt Williams, in a small role as a chipper hitchhiker, injects about 15 minutes worth of fun into Father Figures, an otherwise mostly dreadful road comedy in which Ed Helms and Owen Wilson play twins searching for a man to call dad.
Owen Wilson is hilarious in this movie! “You just emphasized the word serial...”😂 gets me every time. Anyway, this movie is about getting along with your siblings, teamwork, and never giving up. This is the perfect comedy for this holiday season!
