Entertaining, but not funny.

A simple, fun-loving comedy full of family drama. Great actors like Owen Wilson, Glenn Close and Ed Helms appear alongside some sports' celebrity cameos. An easy watch.

Promising start but fell off fast to a painfully idiotic road trip that exercised the fast forward button often. Because the story was told in distinct segments, did not eject, hoping the next segment would be worthwhile. Sad that the esteemed actors participated in this condescending time waster.

Rotten tomatoes:
Critics Consenses:
Success has manny fathers, but failure is Father Figures. 17%

Roger Ebert:
A generous 1 of 4 star.

I enjoyed this movie and had some laughs. A little jealous of the one brother though. He just has so much luck although he is almost like an air head. His luck even rubbed off onto his twin brother. Also, found the part when the other older men was describing banging their mother and the look on the twins brother who was the bum doctors specialist. I would say it was worth watching just for a laugh.

This is a dumb comedy, and sometimes that's just what I think I need. If you like the leads, like I do, it is above average; if you don't, it's just average. Try to enjoy the road trip journey since the destination/conclusion is pretty disappointing. Most of the writing is predictable, however, there are a couple of times it strays from the obvious course. Father Figures is rated R for language and sexual references throughout.

This movie was actually very funny. My husband and I both enjoyed this movie. I think you would be pleasantly surprised.

A very poorly written script trying, no forcing to tear a heart strings but failing. 40 year old males with daddy issues is just not funny

It has a few funny moments, a nice message at the end. A bit slow in places so I wouldn't say comedy. Some great acting.

We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this movie - gave it a 7 out of 10! It was very well-acted and well-written. Quite enjoyable all the way through. We especially liked J.K. Simmons' acting, but they actually all did a great job. Thumbs up!

Road trip movie between brothers trying to find their dad. A lot of comical situations ensue. Most of the gags were pretty funny with a heartfelt ending.
