Must-watch movies on Netflix: Like Father

Release Year: 2018

Directed By: Lauren Miller

Sometimes we all need a light-hearted comedy to escape into, and that’s where Netflix’s original film Like Father comes in. Kristen Bell stars as Rachel Hamilton, a workaholic executive who finds herself left at the altar with a honeymoon cruise going to waste. Rachel ends up taking the Caribbean cruise with her estranged father Harry (Kelsey Grammer), who also could use a vacation from work. Even though Rachel and Harry embark on their cruise as relative strangers, their break from reality and much-needed soul-searching changes their perspectives on life and each other.

Like Father was something of a blip on the Netflix radar in 2018, but the heartwarming comedy remains a hidden gem on the platform. Although it earned middling reviews with its 46% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer shine opposite each other in Lauren Miller’s directorial debut. Not to mention, Miller’s husband Seth Rogen (you might have heard of him) appears in obviously hilarious supporting role. It’s funny, it’s cathartic, it’s a sunny pick-me-up for a dreary day. You can’t go wrong with a viewing of Like Father on Netflix.
