80
Washington Post - Desson Thomson
Crystal’s deadpan expressions and one liners interlock perfectly with Williams’s multiple personalities and verbal asides. They’re like basketball all-stars flipping no-look passes, trading slam-dunks and practically chest-bumping each other. Director Ivan Reitman doesn’t have to do more than keep time.

Chicago Tribune - Michael Wilmington
It's just another Williams and Crystal movie. But let's see a few more.

The New York Times - Janet Maslin
Not surprisingly, there are some slow patches and formulaic touches, but that's a fair trade for the fun of watching Mr. Williams and Mr. Crystal make an irresistible comic team.

TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
How much you enjoy the film will depend entirely on how much you enjoy the spectacle of Williams spewing forth streams of nonsensical gibberish in an attempt to impersonate a German record producer, and Crystal pitching snit fits.

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
If Fathers’ Day really had been released in the mid-’80s, I’d have said it was so funny I forgot to laugh.
