Worth the Watch
17 February 2017 | by deadislandnegSee all my reviews

Un Padre No Tan Padre presents a story of a mean elderly man that for reasons outside of his control he must stay with his youngest son. This plot is far from anything you would consider new or ground breaking although the plot may have been done before this movies is worth the watch. Un Padre will make laugh but it truly shines by pulling at the heart strings. This film will have you invested in most of the characters while some of the dialog may be offensive, I believe the dialog is necessary to show the natural progression of the characters. So overall I would recommend this film to anyone who likes their movies with a bit Comedy and a lot of Emotion. ( FYI this film is in Spanish with English subtitles )
