You'll be laughing all 'week'
27 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

DAD'S WEEK OFF is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen in my entire life. I saw it one day on the movie channel. It's about a computer salesman named Jack [Henry Winkler] who decides he needs some time off from his family so his family leaves him home alone for a week. His week starts off nice and quiet until his working buddy named Bernie [Richard Jeni of THE MASK] shows up. Pretty soon it's party time at Jack's place. The movie has little plot, but tons of laughs which mostly come from the wacky antics of Bernie. This is probably the best made-for-cable movie I have ever seen.
