Average sitcom disguised as a movie.
18 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Father's boy wasn't really a good movie. However, I can't really say that I hated. It was just an average sitcom-type movie, but sitcoms are still mostly enjoyable, even when average.

Things I liked about this movie: -It was short and sweet. It moved along at a good pace, and it was less than an hour long so it never dragged.

-Acting was mostly good.

-Characters were mostly fully realized, even if they were stock. I'd rather have a cliché character than a completely bland one.

-Had a good musical score. It wasn't a masterpiece, but it helped with the happy atmosphere of the movie.

-The comedy wasn't terrible. No belly laughs, but I've seen way worse.

Things I disliked about this movie: -Like I said before, there was no belly laughs in the movie. None of the gags were very memorable or imaginative, they were just there. Nothing above sitcom standards.

-And like I keep saying, this was just a sitcom. There was nothing cinematic about, nothing that justified putting it on the big screen. The plot could've been used on a thirty minute sitcom on the radio back then. In fact, being less than one hour, this just barely qualified as a feature film. It's like the writer just wanted to write a screenplay to pay rent rather than putting effort into making a classic movie.

I wouldn't really recommend it to anybody, unless if it happens to be on TCM and nothing else is on. Again, it's only a little under an hour, so you won't be wasting THAT much time.
