The directorial debut of For a Good Time, Call… co-writer Lauren Miller, Like Father sees Kristen Bell hitting a few rom-com check-boxes as workaholic New Yorker left at the altar. With a honeymoon cruise scheduled for just hours after her ruined nuptials, she ends up getting drunk with her estranged father and taking him. And that’s an especially unexpected move given that her father is Kelsey Grammer, who certainly none of us saw showing up in this thing as a leading player. Miller’s husband, Seth Rogen, co-stars as a Seth Rogen type who’s also on this cruise.
Instead of a timely arrival yesterday, Like Father will belatedly hit Netflix August 3.
