| Only Irons is having a good time here
In the #MeToo era of Hollywood's misogyny. An Actor Prepares would count as a prime exhibit.

Jeremy Irons plays Atticus Smith a hard living and hard drinking Oscar winning actor who has a heart attack while receiving a lifetime achievement award.

Unable to fly he has to drive cross country to attend his daughter's wedding. He is accompanied reluctantly by his estranged son Adam, an uptight feminist lecturer and documentary maker who seems to have a few problems of his own.

Smith is preparing to play god for his next role. Despite his health scare he is not prepared to give up his boozy lecherous lifestyle as he hits the road. He also regards Adam as a snitch who told his mom that dad was cheating on her.

Irons is having a ball playing the philandering Smith and he is certainly waves his balls about in front of his son as the viewer gets to see plenty of his rear.

Unfortunately Irons is the only person having fun in this movie. It is an unfunny road comedy with tired cliched characters.
