Father Figures

Image result for father figures

Ed Helms and Owen Wilson play twin brothers who have never known their father.  But when one of them recognizes someone on TV who looks like a picture they were given of him by their mom, a wild road adventure ensues.

I must admit, in recent years I rarely get excited to see comedies since most of them aren't that funny.  In fact, a lot of them are painful.  But Father Figures was a terrific surprise and just what the doctor ordered for me.  And the less you know about the cast the better.  The film boasts a terrific ensemble cast, but unfortunately the movie poster spoils what seems to be best left as surprise encounters on their adventure.  So avoid it if you want to maximize your entertainment.

Grade: A-

Who is this movie for?  It's a very enjoyable comedy for adults.  Better than you think.  Go see it.
