I can't think of anything substantial to complain about.

'FATHER FIGURES': Four Stars (Out of Five)

A comedy starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms as two adult fraternity twin brothers, that go on a road trip together to find out who their true biological father is. The movie was directed by debut feature filmmaker Lawrence Sher, and it was written by Justin Malen (who also co-wrote the 2016 Christmas comedy flick 'OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY'). It costars Glenn Close, Katt Williams, Terry Bradshaw, J.K. Simmons, Christopher Walken, Ving Rhames, Harry Shearer and June Squibb. The film has gotten mostly negative reviews from critics, and it's disappointed at the Box Office so far. I found it to be mostly a pretty funny movie! Peter (Helms) and Kyle Reynolds (Wilson) are adult fraternity twin brothers. Peter is a proctologist who is suffering through a divorce and problems with his son. Kyle is a model who made a lot of money selling his image to a successful BBQ company, and now he's being replaced by a monkey. Peter resents Kyle for having such an easy life, and he's also feeling a lot of pain for never knowing his father. When their rich mother (Close) tells the twins that their father didn't really die when they were children (like she originally told them), and she doesn't really know who their true father is, because she slept with a lot of men (in her past), Peter and Kyle set out to find their true biological dad.

The movie is a little hit-and-miss, but it's mostly funny. Wilson and Helms are both fantastic in their roles, and they also have great chemistry together. The supporting cast is all entertaining to watch as well, and the movie (as a whole) is a fun Christmas time comedy film experience. I found it to be really enjoyable, and I can't think of anything substantial to complain about. It does it's job well, and you'll probably get what you expect from it, if you decide to watch it.
