Did we list your favorite (or least favorite) movie dad? Let us know what we missed!
You forgot Darth Vader who was willing to kill his own son.
or craig nielson in poltergeist. my 2nd favoritve movie dad, behind atticus in to kill a mockingbird, and you got that one so no complaints.
Rodney Dangerfield was in "Natural Born Killers"....damn i missed that. i gues.
You left out the Dad of all Dads: Brando in The Godfather.
Perhaps one of the worst!
Can't believe you left out John Goodman in SPEED RACER. Pops rules!
Agreed on Steve Martin. He deserves the award for best father who has no kids in real life. Love him in Father of the Brides and Cheaper by the Dozen, and Parenthood, too.
best dad? - Stever Martin: Father of the Bride both 1 and 2
Pierce Brosnan in "evelyn"
how about Seth Rogen in KNOCKED UP?
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
