Set in Los Angeles, California this film revolves around Emily Tyler (Ashley Olsen), a surfer-girl, and her identical twin sister, Tess (Mary-Kate Olsen), a member of a high-diving team. The movie follows the two sisters as they try various stratagems to get their widower father, Max (who is a talented artist and sculptor) a girlfriend. After their first attempts end in failure, Tess and Emily team up with their friend Cody to paint an advertisement on a giant billboard situated high above Sunset Boulevard. Many women answer the advertisement through letters and through random chance, Max answers a letter submitted by a woman named Debbie. Debbie brings along her friend Brooke as a back-up in preparation for the former's date with Max. Brooke and Max coincidentally meet and take a liking to each other and Debbie agrees they should start dating. At first, Tess and Emily don't like Brooke's son, Ryan, but when an elaborate scheme by Max's business manager, Nigel, to break up the romantic relationship between Max and Brooke arises, Ryan and the girls learn to put aside their differences in order to foil the break-up plan.
Billboard Dad received a forty-seven percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film also was rated as "Family-Approved" for all ages from the Dove Foundation.
