Light entertainment. Not completely awful, just dreadfully forgettable. Kevin Spacey's likability helps a lot as does Heather Graham's and Johnny Knoxville's but I don't expect to see any of them nominated for anything this year. The story itself isn't horrible either, it just doesn't seem to work, nothing really gels. I watched it on a plane so I didn't feel robbed but I'd be mightily miffed if I'd paid to see it.

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!
