Why do a lot of guys look like their mothers?....and vice versa.?

I hope I don't sound like a caveman or something but I thought boys were supposed to look like their fathers and girls like their mothers. It kinda seems strange to see the opposite. I don't think it's wrong but I want someone to explain how this happens....Scientifically speaking....not just some B.S. opinions either.

Update:

From these answers, I don't think you guys understood what I was asking. What exactly makes a son take after the mother instead of the father?....And vice versa.

    The reason they look like their mothers is that most women sleep around these days and the identity of the true father is unknown.

    I think roughly 50% resemble their mom more than their dad, and 50% the converse of that.

    I look a hell of a lot like my dad.
