Fake Dad

The Ultimate Meet-The-Parents Preparation!

It is a well-known fact that dads are not always particularly fond of their daughter’s boyfriends. And for the boyfriend, meeting the family is one of the most dreaded moments – a tough and scary challenge.

A comedy hit on Japan’s TV Asahi, on air for over 15 years, Fake Dad features a boyfriend meeting his girlfriend’s father for the first time. But at the request of the girlfriend, the unassuming boyfriend is actually meeting a fake, sent to check him out and give him the most practical test run. Will he behave correctly?

Once dinner is over, the boyfriend finds out that he has been tricked. But it’s all for his own good. Even if the meal was a total disaster, it was only a trial and the real dad is yet to be met. The boy heads on to meet real dad with less butterflies in his stomach… but will he do better than before?
