father of the year
Ben has done everything right and is off to a new life and job in New York. However, he takes a halt at his hometown to see his wasted dad Wayne. David Spade as Ben’s father is hilarious from the time he makes an entry. He is a drunkard, psychotic and colour blind. Hence, he goes on to cracking racist jokes on blacks to black people. Ben’s best friend Larry is the classic cool dude but it’s not his father that he gets those genes from—Mardy is fragile and gets backed down by his eight-year-old stepson. Now a casual argument breaks between the boys, on whose father would win in a fight? Wayne being the psycho doesn’t get the word ‘casual’ and arrives at Larry’s place for a fight. Things go haywire for all of them after that but never stop being funny for the viewers. The film establishes its necessary emotional connect through the father and son bonding in spite of all the chaos. Worth a watch!
