Bad Dads, can we remove the Dads and it be bad because it is!
15 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I saw this on YouTube, i don't remember laughing once and it was uploaded by 'CollegeHumour' << not a good name when you're creating stuff that is intended to make the viewers laugh but doesn't.

I like Cera as an actor and he's actually good in it but it's about his dad and he's terrible, not terrible in a way that he is actually a Bad Dad and he does a good job but the guy who plays him is a terrible actor, the script is rubbish as well as the ides and i want those minutes i spent watching it back because i have wasted them on something that wasn't what it was supposed to be.

It's on YouTube if you want to watch it but it's not worth it, you'd probably then have a go at me for even recommending it, this is not a recommendation, do not watch this.
