DADS (2020): The Thing I Liked…

Dads (2020), Apple TV+

Watching Dads, Bryce Dallas Howard’s Fathers Day documentary succeeded at putting a smile on my face, as predicted. An exploratory look at contemporary fatherhood that celebrates good fathers, I enjoyed listening to all the dads; many famous and some less so as they shared their fears, hopes and approaches to fatherhood in the modern-day.

Dads is a celebration of the good fathers out there; a documentary touches on the fundamentals of what makes a good father, regardless of society’s rigid expectations about a father’s role.

Dads was never meant o be the most thorough study of fatherhood. It’s a film about ‘friends’ sharing their experiences of fatherhood, what inspired their approach to it and what they hope to achieve.

Ultimately, Howard’s film will be a different experience for each person dependant on their relationship with their father. What you’ll realise by the end, if not sooner is this, great dads are a massive gift, regardless of whether they’re yours or someone else’s.

Kenan Thompson, Jimmy Kimmel, Patton Oswalt, Judd Apatow, Will Smith, Hasan Minhaj and Ken Jeong are among the famous fathers featured.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Dads (2020).


Directed by  Bryce Dallas Howard; Dads is a new Apple TV+ documentary aimed at exploring contemporary fatherhood through anecdotes and wisdom.

Also featuring Dallas Howard’s own father, director Ron Howard, additional features include famous funnymen including Jimmy Kimmel, Will Smith, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris…

I get the feeling I’m going to be happy to spend some time simply watching fathers putting smiles on their children’s faces, and vice versa. Anything else will very likely just be a bonus.

Other featured fathers include Patton Oswalt, Judd Apatow, Hasan Minhaj, Ron Howard, Ken Jeong, Thiago Queiroz, Andy Griffith and Kenan Thompson.

Dads Release Dates: June 19th, 2020, Apple TV+
