Every father’s worst nightmare comes to life in this gloriously inappropriate comedy that’s brought to life by director John Hamburg.
James Franco of course takes on the role of Liard Mayhew, the boyfriend with little regard for discretion and an astonishingly good bank of swearwords. Whilst Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, steps into Dad mode, as an overbearing father.
It goes without saying that this is very much a dad VS. boyfriend battle, giving way to a whole host of brilliant comic material, from pink panther style combat to business banter.
What makes this comedy so unrelentingly hilarious is that it is the characters that make it so, rather than props. Cranston’s facial expressions whilst using a Japanese toilet are quite frankly Oscar winning material on their own.
It may not be a film for family night, but it definitely leaves a lasting impact, mostly because once you see a dead Moose’s genitals impound a fifteen year olds face, it’s not something you forget in a hurry.
