  • Most of the characters may be trapped in programmed spontaneity, but you can get a real lift out of the landscapes, the crisp sunlight splayed over gas stations and billboards, and the cannonade of '50s and '60s rock oldies.

  • Father Hood isn't so much undemanding as vapid, disjointed rather than antic. And if this film is a romp, then so is bearbaiting.

  • Despite its best intentions, Father Hood is destined to become leftovers in the video store.

    Jul 8, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It does suggest, ultimately, that if more wards of the state would run off to join their fathers on cross-country crime sprees, we could lick these corrupt foster-care and inattentive-dad problems.

    Jul 8, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie develops a hopelessly split personality.

    Jun 12, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A train wreck from start to finish.

    Patrick Swayze is funny and believable in a role that seems to have been fashioned out of cardboard.
