Storyline Heading
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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full 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 Post Full 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 Magazine Full 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.

Moviegoer Opinions:

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.
