Bickering adult fraternal twins played by Ed Helms and Owen Wilson learn to their dismay that their mother prior to their birth was sexually precocious, and that the identity of their actual father is unknown to her. So the twins embark on an odyssey to locate their paternal parent. And along the way the brothers find themselves bonding for the first time in their lives.
The sort of picture which believes proctology is automatically worth a laugh, “Father Figures” is directorial debut of cinematographer Lawrence Sher, who photographed a number of independent features, as well as the “The Hangover” trilogy of comedies. Based on this mess, possibly Sher should start cleaning the dust of his camera lenses.
The script for “Father Figures” has been kicking around in development since 2011. Filmed in late 2015 and originally scheduled for release in November 2016, the picture was removed at the last minute from the release schedule and kept in hiding for over a year.
Originally entitled “Bastards” and being released in Great Britain with the title “Who’s Your Daddy?” the picture was retitled “Father Figures” as a means of gaining circulation in media venues which originally had refused advertising under the film’s original title.
"Father Figures" was unceremoniously dumped into 2902 theaters across the US on December 22 in an effort to recoup studio production costs by separating undiscerning Christmastime moviegoers from their money.
Seems like much ado about nothing. Consider yourselves warned.
This is a typical Hollywood situational comedy that uses sex talk to sell the lightly written comedy of four scenes. It concludes the the faux feel good moment. Many stars that don't shine in the universe because of a bad script.
