I am not sure what to say... someone wrote that ""Father of Invention" proves strikingly uninventive" and that summarizes the lot! Doesn't matter how good Kevin Spacey was, or the impressive cast including Johnny Knoxville, Craig Robinson, and Virginia Madsen... even they could not save such a bad screenplay and shaky directing by Trent Cooper! It was watchable but even after finishing watching it, you'll still feel empty like in the middle of it... it was a movie about nothing special... actually I could not even say what was the movie about... sorry... some kind of relationship fixing or something like that as I could guess?! Don't waste time!

Kevin Spacey could pretty much do anything and I would like it. I thought there would be more to this movie, but for what it was, I enjoyed.

Father of Invention is a deeply flawed, weird, and an overall mess of a movie. The writing is horrendous, having no idea what its(TM) trying to be. The satire is childish and silly, the comedy is flat and bland, as is most of the acting (save Spacey, who tries, but can(TM)t rise above the material. The film has no sense of direction or purpose, it(TM)s just a weird blend of poorly executed nonsense.
