I’ll admit it, I am a sucker for a great movie dad. And by “great” I don’t necessarily mean “Father of the Year material,” I mean memorable. I certainly did not envy the relationship Chelsea (Jane Fonda) had with her dad (Henry Fonda) in On Golden Pond, but I must have seen that movie a dozen times just to have an excuse to cry my eyes out. By the way, am I the only one who does that? There’s just something about a great, classic movie dad that pulls at my heartstrings more than Steel Magnolias and Beaches combined. There are few pleasures that can compare to a good cry over popcorn and a classic film. I have a long, long list of favorite “Dad-centered” movies for just such an occasion, but have narrowed it down to just a few never-fail films, perfect for Father’s Day and any time of year. Enjoy! 1. Paper Moon (1973) First of all, how amazing is Tatum O’Neal in this movie? Seriously! It’s no wonder she won an Oscar for playing her real-life dad’s (maybe) daughter in this memorable film. I love Paper Moon for so many reasons! My favorite moments are when Ryan O’Neal is so frustrated with Tatum but can’t do anything about it because 1. She’s a kid (maybe his), 2. She’s probably right and 3. She may be smarter than he is. It’s such a REAL relationship that you can’t take your eyes off of it for the entire picture. And can we talk for a second about the incredible fashion moment when Tatum wore a tiny tuxedo to accept the Oscar? Classic!
