Fatherhood Movie Review

When our children are born, we see nothing but possibilities and a bright future. But nothing, as we all know, is promised. Life gets in the way and forces us to face reality.

In the new Netflix movie, Fatherhood, Matt Logelin (Kevin Hart) has just become a father for the first time. He has also lost his wife the day after their daughter is born. Though his friends and his family are trying to be supportive of Matt, there is some concern that he will be able to parent his daughter alone. As time passes, he proves them wrong. Like any parent, he is juggling raising his child and working. There is also the potential of a new romance, making his complicated life that much more complicated.

Comedy wise, there is nothing special about this film. However, it feels emotionally authentic. Though I have not had the experience myself, I imagine that anyone who is raising or has raised children will connect with Matt and the challenges he goes through.

Do I recommend it?

I am leaning toward yes. It is also appropriate that it was released on Father’s Day weekend.

Fatherhood is available for streaming on Netflix.
