Kevin Hart Is A Single Dad In Heartwarming ‘Fatherhood’ First Trailer

Posted May 12, 2021

“I just wanna do what your mom woulda wanted me to do…” Netflix has released the official trailer for a new “heartwarming, funny and emotional true story” movie called Fatherhood, the latest film directed by Paul Weitz (American PieAbout a BoyCirque du FreakBeing FlynnBel Canto). Adapted from the book “Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love” by Matthew Logelin. 

Kevin Hart stars in this film as a widower taking on one of the toughest jobs in the world: fatherhood. He doesn’t really know what to do and struggles to figure out how to raise her correctly on his own, trying his best to be “perfect” for her. The impressive ensemble features Alfre Woodard, Lil Rel Howery, DeWanda Wise, Anthony Carrigan, Melody Hurd, Deborah Ayorinde, Teneisha Collins, as well as Paul Reiser. This looks surprisingly charming and not too cheesy, which is impressive for a Kevin Hart movie. Might actually be worth a watch.
