      Calum Marsh New York Times The humor is glib and fatuous, with the broad, clichéd tone of an old-fashioned network sitcom. May 9, 2023 Full Review Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News Hits it target, being both funny and squirm-inducing. Aug 11, 2022 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Some of the jokes are a little corny, but the movie gets better as it goes along. Ally Maki gives an impressive performance as a Type-A perfectionist with daddy issues. Dealing With Dad does a mostly capable job of balancing family drama and comedy. Jun 2, 2023 Full Review Pamela Powell Reel Honest Reviews Huang’s “Dealing with Dad” just may allow you to see yourself or your family just a little differently while it entertains and makes you laugh. Rated: 3.5 May 27, 2023 Full Review CJ Sheu The News Lens International The Americanized grown children of Asian immigrants come to terms with the poor emotional parenting of their father. The real twist isn’t in the premise of the Taiwanese father having depression but rather what if he actually doesn’t have a heart of gold? May 25, 2023 Full Review Tessa Smith Mama's Geeky Unapologetically dives into depression and how it affects those around it. It also leans into past traumas and eye opening realizations about who your parents were before you. It's funny, but it's also extremely emotional. Rated: 4.5/5 May 12, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jumin C While addressing a serious subject matter, the film is skillfully crafted with moments of levity interspersed throughout. Its storytelling is compelling, touching upon relatable themes of familial relationships. Although the family at the movie's center is Asian, the universal aspects make it relevant to audiences of any cultural or racial background. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review Eden N No one was likable, just seemed like stereotypes with no purpose. Therapy seriously needed for the whole family. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/02/24 Full Review Patrick M For better or for worse-- mostly worse-- the Hollywood studio system tends to leave unrepresented whole swaths of what it means to be a person. Depression is one of those blind spots, imo. Sometimes it takes an indie film like this one to really explore the ways in which we're all broken, and the small graces that heal. Tom Huang does just that in "Dealing with Dad"... never flinching, but also never failing to find the humor and warmth inside of our brokenness. A very strong recommend. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/16/24 Full Review Ross C Dealing with Dad deftly showcases the cast members' comedic chops to illustrate some pretty sober themes: family ties tested by dysfunction, generational and cultural gaps, the helplessness one feels in supporting loved ones suffering from mental health issues like depression. While there are some great gags with the family being Asian American: mom setting up her recently divorced son, cringe-inducing parental remarks on daughter's interracial marriage, siblings hazing each other at a Chinese buffet restaurant (bc it's great value for the $), this film is not just for AAPI viewers. Adult children having to care for aging parents travels across cultures as does coping with mental health challenges. DwD brings the laughs with a great cast of characters who move smoothly from chuckles to tenderness. Hayden Szeto, who plays the youngest brother, is a scene-stealer! Bravo to Director Tom Huang for a film that strikes the right balance of seriousness with an excellent cast that brings the humor. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/09/24 Full Review James H So worth the watch! The humor delivers, the pain, and anguish of trying to recover from your trauma while trying to care about the parent that raised you and also caused it is well written and very well executed. The script was tight and the acting was on point! Everyone did a great job and nailed their roles perfectly. Very worthy of your time and attention in my opinion! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/08/24 Full Review Audience Member Terrible editing, hard to watch Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
