Let’s speak in regards to the apparent subject with “Fathers’ Day,” and that’s its funds. For such a low-stakes film, it appears weird that it had a funds of $85 million (through The Numbers). Whereas specifics on this funds aren’t well-known, it is seemingly that a good portion of it went to pay Williams, Crystal, and Reitman for his or her participation. There are additionally the cameos from pop-rock band Sugar Ray to consider, as they’d simply hit the mainstream on the time. Regardless, given the plot and occasions of the film, it looks like $85 million was too egregious of a price ticket, at the very least in hindsight.

There’s additionally the truth that it wasn’t the one film launched throughout its opening weekend. “Fathers’ Day” was in direct competitors with the sci-fi epic “The Fifth Factor,” which opened to round $17 million in its first American weekend. For comparability’s sake, “Fathers’ Day” opened to roughly $8.8 million that very same weekend. Much more humiliating was the truth that “The Fifth Factor,” which featured grand technological landscapes and then-cutting-edge particular results, solely price 5 million extra to make than “Fathers’ Day” and introduced in a complete field workplace gross of $263.9 million (through Field Workplace Mojo). To make issues much more baffling, it ended up being launched on Mom’s Day weekend as a substitute of its titular vacation weekend.
