Atom User Reviews for About My Father
I really loved this movie! Runtime was about 90 minutes but it was a well-paced film and the jokes were really good!! Great to see Di Niro and the cast have fun with it :) I give it a solid 9/10 please support these small indie films!!
I thought he was going to be more like himself, being a comedian, rather than a hotelier, and her parents like his wife; Jewish and in California.
Didn’t need the swimming trunks down part
Good and "Feel Good"
it was enjoyable
Director Laura Terruso overlooks several comedic opportunities in About My Father. It’s as though she’s working from a script that’s been edited by someone who got the situations but not the jokes.
This is sit-com level material and, as such, there’s not much new or interesting that De Niro can bring to the proceedings.
It opts for too many broad, clunky or far-fetched beats to move the story and its requisite emotional needs forward, rather than weave a more organic, effectively lived-in and, yes, genuinely funny tale.
