Father Figures (also known as Who's Your Daddy? in the United Kingdom) is a 2017 American comedy film directed by Lawrence Sher (in his directorial debut), written by Justin Malen, and starring Owen Wilson, Ed Helms, J. K. Simmons, Katt Williams, Terry Bradshaw, Ving Rhames, Harry Shearer, June Squibb, Christopher Walken, and Glenn Close.

Plot

Brothers Kyle and Peter Reynolds were raised to believe that their dad died when they were young. They're shocked to discover that their mother lied about his death because she never knew who the biological father was. Setting out on an epic quest to find him, the two siblings soon learn more about their mom's past than they ever wanted to know.

Why It Sucks

  1. Very bad editing.
  2. Poor acting of Owen Wilson, Ed Helms, and J. K. Simmons.
  3. Cringe and weak humor.

Redeeming Qualities

Reception

Father Figures was poorly reviewed by critics and audiences. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 17% based on 46 reviews, with an average rating of 3.6/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Success has many fathers, but failure is Father Figures.".
