Yes, I saw Father's Day. I even saw the french flick it's based on. I'm a little ashamed.My dad is a French freak, he actually likes French things. Ugh. So i was forced, as a small child, to see numerous French films, including the one this is based on.
So I'm in Denmark visiting my parents, and if you've ever been there you know there is very little to do, so my sister Anna and I decided to do a movie marathon in which we saw George Of The Jungle, Four Rooms and yes, Father's Day
It was bad.
It was cute, but it wasn't really funny, and I was promised funny, dammit.
Summary: A boy runs away, the mother asks two of her ex boyfriends to go find him and lies to them, tell each he is the real father of the child. They find him and eventually after a series of mishaps, bring him home only to learn neither is really the father.
In this version, the boy runs away to be a groupie for Sugar Ray. Mark McGrath can't act. He's cute, but he should just shut up.
But Mel Gibson was in it, for like 2 minutes, talking about piercing his hooha, and that was pretty damned funny.
I hate to admit this, but in this one specific case, the French version was better than the American, because it's basically a slapstick comedy, and Americans don't like slapstick, so they took it all out, and it just doesn't work that way.Haha, Mel Gibson's hooha. 1 spork.
