34 Brutally Hilarious Letterboxd Reviews of Bill Burr’s ‘Old Dads’
Old Dads is looking more like an old dud for Bill Burr. In it, Burr, who directed and co-wrote the film, plays a middle-aged businessman struggling to keep up with millennial culture. Although it’s Burr’s first time helming a feature film, Old Dads isn’t his first narrative outing. The “comedian’s comedian” previously worked with Netflix on his animated sitcom F Is for Family, which ran for five seasons and nabbed two Emmy nominations.
The same industry acclaim is unlikely for Old Dads, as it’s been met with mixed reviews by critics and audiences alike. Case in point: Over on Letterboxd, the film currently averages only 2.5 stars amongst the cinephiles and movie freaks. But while many of the reviews were scathing, they were at least funny — some might argue funnier than Old Dads.
