LIKE FATHER (2018): The Things I Liked…

Like Father, a Netflix comedy / drama about a workaholic woman who goes on her honeymoon with her father after being ditched at the alter is a good movie.

Directed and co-written by Lauren Miller Rogen, I particularly enjoyed the writing and not just because I found the script funny. Whilst simultaneously moving and amusing me, Like Father did a good job of portraying an example of a challenging father / daughter relationship. The story also  helped confirm some of the necessary elements for any kind of reconciliation to even be possible.

If I had to choose, my overall favourite moment in Miller’s movie is the fun Newlywed / honeymooners game. Like father really helped further solidify my general ‘deep like’ for Bell I also love that Like Father reminded me of the beautiful bass of Kelsey  Grammer’s voice.

Watch this one if the story intrigues you and especially if you like the cast. As you do that, I’m going to take a few moments to consider when my next New York trip might be. I may also  begin to plan my Royal Caribbean Cruise itinerary; just a couple of possible side effects of watching this movie.

LIKE FATHER (2018): New Trailer From Kristen Bell, Kelsey Grammer, Seth Rogen…

Directed by Lauren Miller Rogen, Like Father stars Kristen Bell, Kelsey Grammer and Seth Rogen.

Bell plays a workaholic who gets ditched at the alter but ends up going on her honeymoon trip anyway with her estranged father…

I like Bell so I’ll give this a chance, much like the same way I gave Bad Moms (2016) a chance. Granted, Bad Moms and it’s sequel turned out to be major disappointments for me. Nevertheless, I have higher hopes for this one. Plus, I can’t give up on Bell, especially since there’s always the memory of my favourite of her movies (Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) to cling to. It’s one of the best movie ‘pleasant surprises’ I’ve ever had.

Brittany Ross, Zach Appelman, Danielle Davenport, Ejyp Johnson and Elisabeth Ness also star.

STORKS (2016): Funny, Cute Adventure…

Storks is an action/ adventure / comedy set in a time when storks deliver packages instead of babies; but then a brand new baby order appears and a stork must what? ‘Always deliver,’ of course.

Starring Andy Samberg, Kelsey Grammer, Ty Burrell, Jennifer Aniston and Katie Crown, Storks is definitely fun and funny. Though it’s not my favourite of the animated films I’ve seen in 2016, I did enjoy the cuteness of all the babies, the nature of Hunter’s relationship with the little birds, the very unique skills of the wolf pack and the general adorableness of Nate Gardner.

There’s also that beautiful song at the end, ‘Fire and the Flood’ by Vance Joy; a singer who just happens to look like a smaller version of comedy actor, Josh Gad.

In case, like myself you rather like the idea of storks delivering babies instead the usual pain fest that’s actual reality, there’s a slight chance that you may find yourself feeling a little blue by the end of this movie, but luckily not for too long. Watch Storks anyway, for all the good things mentioned above.

Lastly, had it not been for the end credits, there’s no way I’d have guessed that Junior is voiced by Andy Samberg, such is his vocal range… one might say.
