Father of Invention
A humble inventor spends eight years in prison when one of his inventions goes awry. Upon release, he is determined to rebuild his reputation and fortune.
This isn't a good film and you can tell that based off of Kevin Spacey's face throughout the film. He always has this expression of, "Oh my god, why am I here?" The story is predictable and the ending really doesn't make a lot of sense. I don't have a lot to talk about so I will keep this review short.
The acting besides Spacey isn't impressive, it is pretty passable at best. It is always nice seeing Heather Graham in things, I just wish she would pick better roles. Johnny Knoxville is fine in the movie but he is Johnny Knoxville so what are you going to do? Everyone else isn't really worth mentioning, many people in other reviews…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Tarina huono-onnisesta spedestä. Sympatia-bongot periksiantamattomuudesta ja itseensä uskomisesta.
I was expecting very, VERY little and was pleasantly surprised with the reasonably entertaining mediocrity. Especially surprised given that the movie opens with like, twelve production company trademarks. Seriously, how low was this budget?
The best thing this film did for itself was limit Camille Bell's speaking parts and let Kevin Spacey do his thing.
Enjoyable, predictable (but a little off the beaten path. a little), one of Kevin Spacey's more bearable low budget mystery appearances (as in "why in God's name is he even IN this movie?").
A film with a lot of fun and a great performance from Kevin Spacey, as was to be expected! :)
#140RVW: Father of Invention. Never even heard of this and now know why. Good 1st act but stalls and sputters out. Give Spacey props, though
Kevin Spacey and Craig Robinson is the only reason to watch this, other than that everyone else is annoying and brings the enjoyment of the movie to a halt.
By the way the pepper sprayer/camera combo is an awesome idea and someone needs to get on that.
This movie started off well and i was hooked on the idea but then it was ruined by awful script and bad acting. Damn. This had me fighting my eyelids to stay awake until i succumbed to the sheer pleasure of zzz zzz.
Not as funny or clever as it thinks it is.
