Dripping with sugar and spice and everything nice, way way beyond realistic. If they tried to make the Dad any more charming I think I would gag. When he started doing magic tricks at dance practice it was about all I could take, Good Grief, who wrote this "overly sweet to the point of sickening show." They could make him pleasant without turning him into something that makes you want to punch him in the face. I don't think I would trust someone for a minute someone who acts like him. And then when asked to Quitclaim, after being out of their lives for 25 years, and has NO claim on anyone or anything, he refuses to sign. Let us just say, I am not really like this movie, every time the guy who plays the Dad comes on the screen I want it to just be over so I don't have to listen to him anymore.
