Fatherhood is a 2021 American comedy-drama film directed by Paul Weitz . The film stars Kevin Hart, Alfre Woodard, Frankie Melody Hurd, and Paul Reiser, and follows a new father who struggles to raise his daughter after the sudden death of his wife.
“Fatherhood” arrives just in time for Father’s Day, in a heart-tugging package that presents star/producer Kevin Hart an opportunity to show off his dramatic acting chops.
After the funeral, many people, especially the mother-in-law, question Matt’s ability to raise a daughter by himself. “Extremely immature” is Marian’s personality assessment. She invites herself to stay with him and Maddie for six months, but he refuses. Well then, he should move away from his good job and good friends and go back to Minnesota, where both his and Liz’s families live. Nope. Not gonna do that either.
This ain’t easy, but Matt works through the sleepless nights and endless diapers, putting a basketball hoop above the diaper pail and putting down some threes until one splatters poo all over the backboard.
