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.
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.
