The Other F Word is a sweet, reveling and proudly foulmouthed documentary chronicling the struggles of punk rocking dads. Kevin and I watched it last year on Father’s Day, we LOVED it. The film follows well known punk rockers- among them Chili Pepper’s Flea, Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen, Fat Mike of NOFX and Jim Lindberg of Pennywise- who spent the first part of their lives rebelling against authority, and now find themselves in a position of authority as fathers.
You do not need to be a fan of the music these guys play or the Punk genre to appreciate this documentary. It will appeal to anyone with an interest in parenthood and all the joys and responsibilities it offers and demands. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, it’s sincerely touching and has just the right balance of humor and heart. Highly recommend!
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, punk or not.
