    • Thanks. There’s a big mix of genres and parenting techniques. It would be funny to swap the dads of the different films around and see what kind film it would be haha.

  1. I missed Boyz n the Hood so I didn’t get that one. So many favorites here, I think I’ve included many of them in my previous father’s day list 🙂

  2. Pingback: Everybody’s Chattin + Musings on The White Queen’s Richard III

  3. Got them all. Phew. My favourite is Atticus Finch but Marlin and Chris Gardner I’d happily have as fathers. Flawed, limited in power but dogged in their love of their child and taking care of them. I suspect the same for A Beautiful Life but haven’t seen it.

    • I’m glad they’ve left such an impression. Well done for not letting any of them stump you 🙂 Life is beautiful is set during World War 2. A classic example of a film with a perfect mix of humour and pathos. I hope you get the chance to see it 🙂

    • Not bad 🙂 I wanted a wide mix. Well done for thinking of Mrs Doubtfire which you mentioned elsewhere. An inspired choice. Funny to think a future James Bond was in there.

  4. I couldn’t guess Boys in the hood, Taken and Kick ass. And I’ven’t seen them either.
    Of course I haven’t seen It’s a Wonderful Life, Lion King, and Finding Nemo, as well; but since I know about those I could guess.The rest of the films are all superb flicks I love!! 🙂
