Walter M (ag) wrote: Even with all the hard work Martin(Lorant Deutsch) puts in around the family vineyard, his domineering father Paul(Niels Arestrup) hardly takes notice of him, especially when he is talking to reporters. That also holds true off the job except when Martin and his wife Alice(Anne Marivin) put their bed's springs to the test. But to everybody's disappointment, no kids yet. To be honest, Paul now has bigger things to contend with when his longtime estate manager Francois(Patrick Chesnais) is diagnosed with cancer and has six months left to live. So, it's a good thing Paul knows how to get in touch with Francois' son Philippe(Nicolas Bridet) in California. "You Will Be My Son" is a compelling and downbeat familial tragedy whose story structure resembles nothing so much as a line of dominoes set into motion. That lack of control extends to how we cannot choose our family, which is Martin's central problem, even though he does love his father after a fashion. Paul not returning that emotion has more to do with his own issues, as he is so vain that he finds disappointment in a son who is not his mirror image.(Paul gives another reason late why he so dislikes his son, but he may have just been trying to get under Martin's skin at that point.) All of which is especially exacerbated by Francois' brush with mortality as questions arise over the next generation in a business where tradition is key.

Lisa Michelle A (it) wrote: OMG! This film is absolutely HILARIOUS! I've loved it since i was little and it was the first film i ever saw Hulk Hogan. He can play comedy really well and should be in more films as he's actually quite a decent actor and a really funny one too. There are so many laughs in this film and it's a favorite mine to watch when i want to take a trip down memory lane. I absolutely love it and reccomend to ALL!!!

Robin M (gb) wrote: A highly-underrated comedy with some awesome high-jinks, some Cold War absurdity, and the most awesome index finger in the universe. I don't care what Shoe says, this movie is hilarious. And still way better than Tropic Thunder.

M E (kr) wrote: I think there are some pretty funny parts in this movie. I dont really remember the entire movie. Main character jerrys trying to get laid, and becomes the camp hero for the woodchucks or someshit. I remember watching this alot as a kid. My philosophy is watch every movie but gigli once and you will inherit wisdom.

Mark S (it) wrote: William Hurt does a great job conveying the persistence, eccentricity and brilliance of Richard Feynman, and Bruce Greenwood secures his role as a great character/supporting actor. I can't say I was terribly impressed with the script though. It seems like events were juxtaposed and embellished from what really happened in order to dramatize the attempt to cover up what really doomed Challenger all those years ago.
