| Father of the Year: Certainly passable stuff
Father of the Year, not to be confused with Worlds Greatest Dad (2009) is a standard Hollywood comedy movie made by Happy Madison studio.

It tells the story of two friends who debate who would win between their fathers in a fight. One being a trailer park loveable loser played by David Spade and the other a wimpy scientist played by Nat Faxon (Who I keep mixing up with Ed Helms for some reason).

They play it safe, if you enjoy Happy Madison movies you'll likely get a kick out of this however on the flipside if you don't then skip over it.

Spade provides his usual brand of goofy physical humor and as usual it works, I chuckled out loud several times throughout the film. A couple of scenes in particular had me in near stitches which comedies rarely do these days.

Sure the whole movie isn't of that consistently great quality but at no point does it really get bad.

Also starring the adorable Bridgit Mendler who has an overwhelming likeability factor and a few of Sandlers friends this is a very passable comedy effort and a good way of killing 90 minutes.

The Good:

Spade and Mendler

Some genuine laughs

Interesting ideas mixed in there

The Bad:

Goes stale a couple of times

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Spade only ever plays one character, and that's fine with me

Faxon IS Helms, I don't care what anyone says! That dude is getting 2 paychecks.
