Fathers' Day Movie Review
For all its saccharine heavy-handedness, Father's Day does manage to come across as one of Reitman's better efforts in recent years, but the by-the-Hollywood-book formula, structure, and pacing really bog down the production. There's plenty of missed comic opportunities, but plenty that hit dead-on -- especially a notable, heavily-pierced cameo (watch for it!). And yes, the estranged son looks exactly like me. A 1/4 star bonus for that.
And yes, I'm sick of writing mediocre reviews, too.
"Luke, I am your father..."
At no time during the film, does Julia Louis-Dreyfus sweat like this.
