Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A bland, labored, poorly written would-be comedy without a single laugh."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Crystal and Williams are a must-see match"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Ivan Reitman parece ter acreditado que bastava colocar Billy Crystal e Robin Williams juntos e gritar 'Ação!'. Não basta."

"A lame plot and less than hilarious lines by two of the funniest men in the world...make Father's Day more of a downer than an uproarious good time."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"Not really memorable except for the fact that it was a box-office failure, even the performances of the two comedy stars can't save it from itself."
‑ Shawn Bowers, Kansas City Star
"Never reaches the expected heights of hilarity."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"An uneven and uninspired farce starring the normally riotous Crystal and Williams."
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"Two comic minds, one disappointing movie."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
