The kindly man in the photo on their mantle isn't their father after all, but an invention their mother concocted to conceal the truth: that she actually doesn't know who their real father
is. See, it was the seventies, and things were crazy, and...well, you know.
Comedy - This is a very crude and raunchy comedy aimed at young adult males.
Fans of stars Owen Wilson and Ed Helms should enjoy, but other
familiar faces such as Glenn Close, Christopher Walken, J.K.
Simmons, Ving Rhames, Katt Williams, and Terry Bradshaw only have
small supporting roles. Constant language and raunchy humor make
the film not for kids.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; 13 S-words; 7 GD's; many others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Comic fights and hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: A train wreck; some fighting. COMEDY: Constant banter and wisecracks, often raunchy; crude sight and physical gags; toilet humor.
Roger EbertFull Review Poor Filled with insincere wackiness and sappiness, "Father Figures” never quite figures out whether it wants to be a raunchy, zippy road movie or a more dialogue-driven dramedy. Despite having no personality of its own, this movie just yearns to be recognized at all.
NY PostFull Review Below Average All of those big-personality actors are a lot of fun. But, on the whole, the movie isn't. You expect the hilarity of Wilson's other delightfully dumb buddy comedies like "Zoolander” or "Wedding Crashers.” Big laughs, however, are hard to come by here.
Slant MagazineFull Review Below Average Father Figures, which finished shooting more than two years ago before spending endless months without a release date, is both meandering and bloated, suggesting the Frankensteinian result of brutal test screenings.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 12 moviegoers:
There weren't a lot of reviews, but the few we collected show that everyone either loved "Father Figure" or enjoyed it very much. Equally important is that no one rated it even slightly low, so this is a movie you will almost certainly enjoy.
