A two-hander action comedy in the vein of Midnight Run (1988), about an ex-F.B.I. Agent (Tommy Lee Jones) and an ex-mob lawyer in the Witness Protection Program (Morgan Freeman) having to put aside their petty rivalry on the golf course to fend off a mob hit.
movie with heart and the laughs - exactly what I needed this time of year!
This movie is a welcome break from all the other films out there. Between all the serious Oscar-driven drama and groan-worthy sequels, Father Figures is a fun, "let's forget about all my stress" kind of movie. The jokes aren't on top of each other like most comedies, and the actors engage you right from their first scenes (in particular Katt Williams). But what surprised me most was how much heart the movie had. Maybe it's because I have two young kids, but watching the two brothers in the train scene and interacting with the mom at the end had me crying! Definitely a fun movie - you get the laughs as well as the warm fuzzies all in one film.
