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!

Father of Invention is an interesting drama that's fairly entertaining. With a story about redemption and second chances, the film follows a former inventor who tries to reconnect with his family and rebuild his life. The casting is pretty good, and includes Kevin Spacey, Camille Belle, Heather Graham, and Craig Robinson. The story takes a few twists, and not always for the good, but when all's said and done it ends up being rather conventional. While most of Father of Invention is mediocre, it has a lot of fun and is pretty entertaining.
