Grab the Tissues!

Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer star in Like Father, a Netflix comedy feature debuting tomorrow, August 3.

Bell plays a workaholic young executive who’s left at the altar. Grammer plays her estranged, equally workaholic father. They somehow end up together on her Caribbean honeymoon cruise where…not exactly a spoiler here…they start to connect with each other. Seth Rogen plays a supporting role as a fellow passenger.

Like Father was written, directed and produced by Rogen’s wife Lauren Miller.

Netflix suggests you “grab the tissues” for this film, and we’re actually surprised they didn’t drop it around Father’s Day. The subscription streamer has even released a heart-tugging promotional video featuring real daughters and fathers reconnecting with each other:

Real Fathers & Daughters Reconnect | Like Father

Grab the tissues and watch these real life fathers reconnect with their daughters, sometimes after years apart.
