I always look forward to all of David James Elliott's movies. I have been disappointed at the last few. They seem all like FLUFF movies. I know he is capable of roles with more 'meat' on them. He is a great actor but this hasn't come through in any movies.
In the "Dad's Home" the story line was weak. He must have had a bundle of money saved for the way it looked like he was spending on his dates. I didn't see any mention of 'cutting back' as would have been the case for most families with the breadwinner out of a job.
Maybe in some families but I thought the daughter going around telling her dad she loved him every time she saw him seemed a bit "much".
The story line just seemed weak and DJE deserved better.

As the weeks go by, dad Ben gets involved with son Dylan's baseball team after he finds out from the coach that Dylan has quit without telling him--having attended no games while he had a job as a now-fired ad executive, and rediscovers the mundane chores that keep a household running. Daughter Lindsay is starting to discover boys--and boundaries must be set when Ben comes home and finds her entertaining a male classmate in her bedroom. Ben and Dylan's teacher are thrown together many times as Ben discovers school activities and actually starts a romantic relationship. Then Ben gets offered a job in Cleveland and has trouble telling the kids who naturally are reluctant to move from their stone-and-glass home with the year-round swimming pool and established friendships. And what about saying a final goodbye to Dylan's teacher--or wondering if they could cultivate a relationship if he stayed?
