The film centers around Sebastian (Maniscalco) who is encouraged by his fiancée (Leslie Bibb) to bring his immigrant, hairdresser father, Salvo (De Niro), to a weekend get-together with her super-rich and exceedingly eccentric family (Kim Cattrall, Anders Holm, Brett Dier, David Rasche). The weekend develops into what can only be described as a culture clash, leaving Sebastian and Salvo to discover that the great thing about family is everything about family.

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      About My Father finds star/co-writer Sebastian Maniscalco drawing on his own life for material -- and inadvertently proving that a funny standup routine doesn't necessarily make for an entertaining film.

      Stephen Romei The Australian It’s an oddball movie that had me laughing out loud, perhaps not for reasons the filmmakers intended, but I enjoyed it anyway. Rated: 3/5 Aug 5, 2023 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom We should not feel that the actors had more fun than the audience. Wait for streaming. Rated: B- Jul 7, 2023 Full Review Claudia Puig FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) A much less funny Meet the Parents meets a much less engaging My Big Fat Greek Wedding, with a dash of low-rent Wedding Crashers thrown in. Jun 6, 2023 Full Review Steve Morrissey Radio Times The best thing by far is De Niro and his zinger of a screwball-comedy performance. Rated: 3/5 Jan 12, 2024 Full Review Vinamra Mathur Firstpost Just like how it happens here, even Hollywood doesn’t mind revisiting mundane tropes only to have some fun. The film may not be original and refreshing, but Robert De Niro is as he calls himself in the film. He’s the father of all, as the title says. Rated: 3/5 Nov 27, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Unfunny comedy. Rated: C Aug 6, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/26/23 Full Review Akiko Very funny. Also loved the fact that had a very nice message: The importance of your family & roots. Values that we dont understand until we mature. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/26/23 Full Review Victor A Really good! I could relate about the immigrate parent price. Def recommend it Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews
