Storyline

Recent widower Ben Westman suddenly loses his executive job in the advertising firm he co-founded and decides not to replace the latest quickly resigning housekeeper. While he seeks another job, far from easy with CEOs like Craig Vertillo believing everything has to be changed on account of the new media, Ben cooks, cleans and raises his pre-teen son Dylan, who desperately needs a firm fatherly hand, and brat daughter Lindsay (14), who needs boundaries with boy-friend Brandon. Some help comes from Ben's brother Brian and Dylan's teacher Hope Jensen, who also becomes Ben's first post-widowing date. Written by KGF Vissers

re: FLUFF
23 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always look forward to all of David James Elliott's movies. I have been disappointed at the last few. They seem all like FLUFF movies. I know he is capable of roles with more 'meat' on them. He is a great actor but this hasn't come through in any movies.

In the "Dad's Home" the story line was weak. He must have had a bundle of money saved for the way it looked like he was spending on his dates. I didn't see any mention of 'cutting back' as would have been the case for most families with the breadwinner out of a job.

Maybe in some families but I thought the daughter going around telling her dad she loved him every time she saw him seemed a bit "much".

The story line just seemed weak and DJE deserved better.
