Some of Crystal's and Williams' character dynamics, were inspired by their HBO Comic Relief performances (with Whoopi Goldberg). See more »
Characters are shown supposedly leaving San Francisco for Tiburon, driving on the upper deck of the Bay Bridge - which only leads towards San Francisco. Additionally, the logical path to take to Tiburon would involve the Golden Gate, not the Bay Bridge. See more »
For a movie that stars Robin Williams and Billy Crystal, you'd automatically expect this film to be laugh out loud funny, but instead, what you get is a contrived cliche after cliche film that never actually goes anywhere. The jokes really don't add up anywhere because the humor is stale. Ivan Reitman's a good director but it seems he's got to pick up better scripts. "Father's Day" suffers unnecessary length and a script that seems to dwell a little too much on dull.
