After suffering a heart attack, a world-famous and hard-drinking actor is forced to drive across country with his estranged son—who testified against him in his parents' divorce—on one last madcap adventure.
Seems like Jeremy Irons had a good time making An Actor Prepares. That's nice for him. I myself, did actually enjoy it more than I expected to by the end, even if the whole "Son accepts shitty dad by virtue of having to spend time in the same immediate vicinity as him" is a trope I absolutely loathe. It's not great, I won't recommend it, and I won't come back to it, but I did laugh a couple of times, and hate it significantly less than I thought I might.
Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole.
