"Happy Fathers Day, Daddy!"

Which Movies, above, do you like about Fathers? Any more suggestions?


  1. I like Life with Father. We watch it every year on Fathers Day on TCM. If any of you have never seen it - I recommend you watch it. It's what families used to be like - wholesome, caring, honorable, and respectful.

    Happy Fathers Day!

  2. Great suggestions. You should also add - "Courtship of Eddie's Father". I like "Father of the Bride", too with Steve Martin best. He is the funniest Dad, ever!
