Questionable parentage is a common theme in stories – Mamma Mia! (2008) hinges on the idea, to name just one example – and now the idea is being used to fuel a comedy called Who's Your Daddy?
Known in the States by the slightly riskier Bastards, we are introduced to Peter ( Ed Helms) and Kyle (Owen Wilson) Reynolds, brothers who for years have had an image of a kind, heroic father in their head. He died when they were both young, inspiring Peter in particular to become a cancer doctor.
But then their mother (Glenn Close) reveals the truth – she is not actually sure who their father is. Thrown into confusion and chaos, the brothers set out on a mission to discover the truth. Among the candidates? J.K. Simmons' (Whiplash) anger merchant and former American Football player and current pundit and actor Terry Bradshaw (Failure To Launch). And as they dig deeper into their mother's relationship history, they discover more about her than they truly wanted to...
We will see how this one pans out as Who's Your Daddy? arrives in the UK on 3 February.
