Father of the Year Trailer

"Some people say I'm unstable, and I snap." Netflix has debuted the trailer for a comedy titled Father of the Year, one of the latest cringe-worthy Happy Madison productions from Adam Sandler's deal with the streaming studio. Surprise surprise, this one looks just as bad. Father of the Year is about two fathers who get into an epic fight of sorts after their college graduate sons challenge them to a showdown. David Spade and Nat Faxon star as the dads, Joey Bragg and Matt Shively star as their kids, and the also includes Bridgit Mendler, Bill Kottkamp, Dean Winters, and Kevin Nealon. This really looks terrible. If you want to watch a better fight movie, Fist Fight is a good choice. And if you want to watch a much better film about a father, Bobcat Goldthwait's World's Greatest Dad is an underrated gem. Just skip this and move on.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Tyler Spindel's Father of the Year, from Netflix's YouTube:

When a drunken debate between two recent college graduates (Joey Bragg & Matt Shively) about whose father would win in a fight is taken seriously by their idiot dads (David Spade & Nat Faxon), jobs are lost, relationships ruined, futures destroyed, and best friends come of age as they come to grips with who their fathers really are. Father of the Year is directed by American filmmaker Tyler Spindel, a former producer for "Chelsea Lately" who made his feature directorial debut with the film Deported in 2017. The screenplay is written by Brandon Cournoyer and Tyler Spindel. This is produced by Allen Covert and Kevin Grady for Happy Madison. Netflix will release Spindel's Father of the Year streaming exclusively starting July 20th.

… You need to learn how to read, i actually want to move on, to another site , that was the basis of my comment, i was asking for suggestion. After you reread my comment a thousand time i suggest you reread yours too and than tell us witch has more huff and puff in ego aggrandizements…

"Go to another site" That what i'm trying to do since the beginning but apparently , reaching out for advice is "ego aggrandizement" somehow… I didn't ask to be confronted or be insulted , i ask for advice. But being the giant douche that you are you didn't understand that… I guess it's not you're fault if your parents are sibling and you were drop on the head at birth a couple of times...

I'm sorry that putting "awful" in the headline for a trailer has caused you to become so incensed you have to "leave" and go to another site to watch trailers. Whatever suits you, fine with me. Especially because this trailer really is awful.

That and all the other trailer articles for the past few years, all fill with useless opinion that we don't need when we want to learn about upcoming movies... Anyway i decided to subscribe to Apple trailers instead, that plus coming soon dot net should do the trick of keeping me informed on the latest movie coming up without some idiot trying to tell me what i should think of them...

Roger that. Have fun.

Some people just get the chance to make all kind of useless and bad films. And they manage to get away with it. Fabulous ...

I find Nat Faxon to be an interesting actor. He has got some serious dramatic chops, but he tends to make silly comedic roles. He is also an amazing writer with his Academy Award for THE DESCENDANTS.

This is just embarrassing....these guys aren't even trying anymore.

I actually saw the movie honestly say I enjoyed it quite so. I found myself watching it back-to-back once by myself feeling once with my kids all teenagers. We all agreed it was funny something fresh. For once not some generic remake. This year has been the year of remakes. I'm so happy that Netflix is producing these movies and original TV series. Adam Sandler's production company hit a home run with father of the year in my opinion. Now with that being said is it just me or does Matt shivley look like he can play as David Hasselhoff's son
