Movie Info

Disney not only recycled the French farce Mon Pere, Ce Heros but brought back the lead actor of the original, Gerard Depardieu, for the Americanized remake My Father, the Hero. Depardieu plays Andre, the loving but neglectful French father of fourteen-year old Nicole (Katherine Heigl), who now wants to be called Nicky. To make up for lost time, Andre picks up Nicole from the condo of his ex-wife Megan (Lauren Hutton) to take her on a vacation to the Bahamas. Nicole, bitter at her father's frequent absences and embarrassed to be seen with him in the Bahamas, concocts a tale in which she tells her fellow vacationers that Andre is her lover -- and an ex-con to boot. Andre, oblivious to whom everyone thinks he is, tries to act like a father taking his daughter on a trip, shocking everyone with unintentional double entendres. At the same time, Nicole is making eyes at the handsome Ben (Dalton James).

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

It's amusing, watching a movie like this, to observe the clangingly false notes.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Iffy premise undercuts what could have been a sweet romance.

October 21, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Off-putting comedy junk full of creepy material.

October 6, 2002 | Rating: 1/5

Depardieu is solid, but this movie fails to hold the audience's interest.
