Watch Fathers' Day - Alternative Versions.
"Fathers' Day" seems to pride itself in its two main stars, Billy Crystal
and Robin Williams. This is more of a film made out of vain then for comedic
purposes. It is for the crowds out there who have been waiting for Billy
Crystal and Robin Williams to star together in lead roles, almost like the
fans of "Freddy vs. Jason" have been waiting for their heroes to duke it
out. This movie combines two big stars, and the amazing thing is that it
actually gets away with it.
Yes, "Fathers' Day" isn't all that great, and no, I didn't love it, but sue
me: I enjoyed it. Is it too much to ask from a comedy that it simply
entertain me, give me a few laughs? Films like "The Hot Chick" can't even
manage to do this, but "Fathers' Day" pulls it off. Why? Maybe because it is
so fun watching Crystal and Williams interact. They bring a dead script to
life. I must admit that given a better script their pairing could have made
for one of the funniest films of the year, but the screenplay for this movie
is dead in the water. Crystal and Williams do their best and make it
amusing, but it could have been so much more. When a film resorts to showing
Robin Williams doing impersonations in front of a mirror for the umpteenth
time, you know that the script isn't all it could and should have
And this is pretty strange, because Babaloo Mandez and Lowell Ganz are
usually trustworthy to deliver an amusing and hysterical script. These are
the men responsible for one of my favorite comedies in recent years, "City
Slickers," and their script for "Fathers' Day" just sinks to predictability,
sappiness and sterotypes.
Get this: Crystal plays an ambitious lawyer who gets a call from an
ex-girlfriend he went out with 17 years earlier. She tells him that her
sixteen-year-old son has run away from home, that he is the father, and that
he must help retrieve the boy. She gives him a photo of the boy (who looks
like the typical teenage snot named Scott), and touched by her story for
whatever reason he agrees to find the boy.
Problem no. 1. Crystal is a lawyer. At the end of the film, he is lied to
and knows this. His wife (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) asks how he knows. He says,
"I'm a lawyer, people lie to me all the time." If he is such a brilliant
lawyer, why did he not look past his ex-girlfriend's little lie? Don't know,
don't care - it is part of the film and what can you do?
And get this: Crystal's ex happens to be Williams' ex, too. She tells
Williams the exact same story as Crystal, hoping to get at least one of them
to find the boy. They both try. We know they will accidentally meet looking
for him, there will be confusion, the boy will not be grateful for their
helping him out until the very end, and so on and so forth.
But this movie entertained me. Crystal and Williams have good chemistry,
even if a good script could have made their interaction a bit more. The
jokes do fall flat at times, but the direction is nice (Ivan "Ghostbusters"
Reitman), and to be honest, I had fun watching this movie. That's all I
really ask for in some comedies.
(Also note a cameo by Mel Gibson, who dropped by the set during filming of
"Lethal Weapon 4" at Warner Bros.!)
