This is a great movie. saw it as a kid, and loved it.

The acting across the board is ok, but this type of movie doesn't really require too much anyway.
Robert Hayes
It is a nice movie some of the stuff is pretty silly but good for a laugh.

This movie really is pretty funny. Crystal is always funny and Williams, well, what can I say... the guy is funny even if he's not trying to be! Crystal plays a straight-laced lawyer while Williams plays a total psychotic, who really wants to believe he has a son so he'll have a reason to stay partially sane.
This movie's plot may be a bit thin, but who cares because the cast is great. The short version of the plot is that a worried mother recruits two men to find her runaway teenage son. How does she get them to agree to find him? She tells each of the men(obviously not thinking that they may run into each other while searching for the boy) that he is the father. This leads to a silly comic pairing.
There are all kinds of great things in this movie. Crystal and Williams are great together. Mel Gibson makes a cameo-- watch closely because you might not recognize him!! The band Sugar Ray is also in the movie. Cool things like that!
This may not satisfy a hunger for laugh out loud, slap on the knee kind of funny, but it's still funny, with a charming ending.

When Scott (Charlie Hofheimer) goes missing, his mother (Nastassja Kinski) informs two of her former lovers that he could be their son. Jack (Billy Crystal) is a lawyer and is skeptical but when his business takes him to San Francisco, he looks for Scott, only to run into the extremely neurotic Dale (Robin Williams) who believes Scott is also his son.

Robin's neurotic character allows him to go through his various character routine which made him a star in the 80's. Together with Crystal they make for a pretty good film comedy duo. The plot was fairly stale and only the strength of Williams and Crystal pulled this thing through. 3 1/2 stars.

PARENTAL GUIDE: No f-bomb, sex, or nudity. Some minor sex talk. A soft PG-13 rating.

FATHER'S DAY, starring Robin Williams and Billy Crystal, is fairly middling as comedies go. Still, the chemistry between Williams and Crystal is very good and both deliver a number of laughs with their own brands of comedy. Billy Crystal is the straight-laced, sarcastic type while Robin Williams is a high-strung, emotional wreck with a penchant for improvisation (his character is an out-of-work playwright/actor).

The premise of the movie is that a woman (Nastassja Kinski) calls and tells each of them that they're the father of her 16-year-old son who just ran away. Then they go on the road in search of him and hijinks ensue. While the concept is rather far-fetched, if you throw plausibility out the window this movie can be enjoyable. Both of the leads get to revel in their schticks for what is essentially a paycheck gig, but it still looked like they had fun working with each other.

The acting across the board is ok, but this type of movie doesn't really require too much anyway. The most important facet is the humor, and for the most part this movie does fine. A lot of the gags were lowbrow and borderline tasteless, but for what it's worth I laughed quite a bit. That being said, there is one gag involving a porto-potty that was drawn out a little too long.

On the negative side, there was a couple of things that disturbed me a little bit, considering Robin Williams recent death, namely, a couple of suicide jokes. When an actor plays a role, certain elements of their real life inevitably make it into the character, and there were some interesting comparisons one could make between Robin's character in this movie and his personality in real life. What really shocked me, however, was his introductory scene which shows him about to blow his brains out with a pistol.

After looking at the rather....well, dumb cover, and reading the synopsis, I expected it to be a rather medicore movie. Boy was I wrong. I'll tell ya, the script ain't gold, but Billy Crystal and (especially) Robin Williams make this movie quite funny as heck. Everything from Williams' opening lines/scene about how depressing his life is, to his amusing vulnerability, to the way Billy Crystal wittily mocks everybody, makes this movie quite a delight. And notice how I used the actors' names instead of the characters' names. That is because, like I said, it is the talented and hilarious acting that saved this movie from potential mediocracy.
The script isn't anything particularly special, and there is only one somewhat major flaw with it: Williams and Crystal are deceptively sent by a former girlfriend of both of theirs on a search for a boy who she claims to be the son of both of them. But near the end, it is never explained why she does that, instead of....oh I dunno, hiring a detective, or looking for him herself? While this kind of takes away from the believability of the story, the story isn't where the movie is meant to shine so it doesn't end up meaning much.
Williams plays the perfect total loser, and Crystal the witty, successful lawyer, in this movie sprinkled with more than enough hilarious and memorable scenes. If it weren't for a tighter script, it would've gotten five stars. Definatley worth a rental, and most likely a purchase if you're either a Billy Crystal or especially (since he was the focus of the majority of the better jokes) Robin Williams fan.
