Father’s Day [VHS]

Father's Day [VHS]

Billy Crystal plays the straight man to neurotic Robin Williams when these two very different individuals join forces to find a runaway teenager. Both, you see, have been told they are the boy’s father by Nastassja Kinski, with whom each had once been involved. This Disney production is based on the more humorous French farce, Les Compères, by Francis Veber (who cowrote this adaptation). It has its moments as breezy entertainment, but the plot is sloppy enough to seem more like slapstick than s

    This movie really is pretty funny. Crystal is always funny and Williams, well, what can I say… the guy is funny even if he’s not trying to be! Crystal plays a straight-laced lawyer while Williams plays a total psychotic, who really wants to believe he has a son so he’ll have a reason to stay partially sane.

    This movie’s plot may be a bit thin, but who cares because the cast is great. The short version of the plot is that a worried mother recruits two men to find her runaway teenage son. How does she get them to agree to find him? She tells each of the men(obviously not thinking that they may run into each other while searching for the boy) that he is the father. This leads to a silly comic pairing.

    There are all kinds of great things in this movie. Crystal and Williams are great together. Mel Gibson makes a cameo– watch closely because you might not recognize him!! The band Sugar Ray is also in the movie. Cool things like that!

    This may not satisfy a hunger for laugh out loud, slap on the knee kind of funny, but it’s still funny, with a charming ending.

    The movie is entertaining and a good way to spend about two hours. Robin Williams predictable. This was not one of his better performances. Billy Crystal’s performance was outstanding. I would not recommend this film for anyone under 15. There are some serious adult issues in it. It can be a bit heavy for younger viewers.

    FUNNY! Williams and Crystal are great together, as always. Their cross-country chase to find their ‘son’ is hilarious. Look for a funny cameo by Mel Gibson as the ‘pierced’ guy. One more thing to add… Don’t miss out on seeing the original French version, LES COMPRERES, with Girard Depardeau… Equally hilarious.
