Old Dads

What to Know

Critics Consensus

With Old Dads, Bill Burr shows signs of promise as a filmmaker -- but they're largely muffled by his fitfully funny screenplay's reliance on tired jokes about generational divides.

Audience Says

If you're a Bill Burr fan, then Old Dads' brand of culture clash comedy should be good for plenty of solid laughs.

John Anderson Wall Street Journal The writing sometimes collapses into overkill, but sometimes it is precisely on point. Oct 23, 2023 Full Review Oliver Jones Observer Rather than challenge himself, Burr instead uses the film to adapt his schtick into a three-hander bro comedy addressing the generational divide regarding modern mores and language. Rated: 2/4 Oct 23, 2023 Full Review Todd McCarthy Deadline Hollywood Daily A boorish and obnoxiously vulgar comedy that, since it can’t claim any other great distinction, might well have been expressly written to break the all-time record for use of the f-word in the major studio movie. Oct 20, 2023 Full Review Chase Hutchinson The Inlander (Spokane, WA) To even call Old Dads a movie feels like a gross overstatement as it hardly meets the requirements to be considered one. Instead, it is like a series of recycled stand-up bits that Burr has already done better before. Here, he just bombs over and over. Jan 4, 2024 Full Review tt stern-enzi WXIX-TV (Cincinnati, OH) Bill Burr looks like he's doing stand-up during most of it. Bobby Cannavale is hilarious in a very broad, crazy, zany kind of way... Rated: B- Nov 15, 2023 Full Review Mark Jackson Epoch Times Bill Burr's stand-up comedy rocks, his acting is surprisingly good, and his directing debut is promising. Especially since "Old Dads" advocates for a demographic that doesn't get a lot of visibility these days. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 4, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Todd Love Bill Burr to death but he should not have directed this. Not great cinematography, editing, script….aiye. Just netflix fodder…. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/23/24 Full Review Helene S do yourself a favor and skip it. just go listen to your dad / grandpa rave about cancel culture. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/18/24 Full Review Bryan G Love Bill Burr, but this movie is painful to watch. Super weak plot, few legit laughs, and mediocre acting. The one positive was it was free to stream. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 07/15/24 Full Review Ryan L I really enjoyed this movie as a commentary on modern parenting and business in Western society. It highlights the societal shift towards an overly cautious, fearful, and controlling parenting and business style. The film explores how we've all become trapped in a new social system that many, including the protagonist, perceive as madness. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/10/24 Full Review Audience Member I loved the movie. The three main characters have almost perfect chemistry. I would be shocked if they didn't really like each other. I have been hoping for a "belly laugh" comedy for quite a while. The writing and directing stay in sync throughout. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/10/24 Full Review Terry W One of the best comedies of the year. Bill Burr is fantastic and the movie is done with old school love.
