My Father, the Hero

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Gerard Depardieu, Katherine Heigl, Lauren Hutton, Stephen Tobolowsky; Director: Steve Miner; MPAA Rating: PG

A hateful ”family” comedy based on jokey insinuations of incest: To impress a Cute Guy at a Bahamas beach resort, a flirtatious 14-year-old (newcomer Katherine Heigl) concocts the story that her innocent father (the great French behemoth Gerard Depardieu, who happily flashes his prodigious bronze gut) is actually her lover. Even sophisticates should feel discomfort.
