See or not

A fatherhood movie can make you emotional, but a Fatherhood movie doesn’t have any special story, it is about a father and raising his baby girl. I was quite bored while watching this, I also felt that it might be in the movie. There were some good turning points, but nothing like this has happened, this movie was very simple.
