It's a story of fatherhood that treats its characters with kindness and compassion, rather than as a spectacle.

Not terrible, but very ordinary.

June 29, 2021 | Full Review…

There is definitely a generic, formulaic feeling about this movie, but there is also a sweetness and an emotional range.

June 21, 2021 | Full Review…

[T]he film, directed and co-written by Paul Weitz, too often goes for the easy resolution, the syrupy payoff and the sense that every character in Matt's orbit is just, like, really really nice.

June 21, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The appeal of Fatherhood really boils down to its title, the resilience of the human spirit, and Hart being bold enough -- like his alter ego -- to think that he can do this. And like Matt, by the time it's over, he's demonstrated that he pretty well can.

Kevin Hart keeps it real (but funny) as a daunted single dad...
