Upcoming sunday, june 20th, it's fathersday. I though of a new list: best movie dads. It's not that easy when you start thinking about it. But I was able to make one. Here it is:
Daniel (Liam Neeson in "Love Actually"): He's actually a stepdad to Sam, because he had to take care of him after his wife died. They band when Sam tells Daniel he's in love. Together they try to win over the heart of the young girl.
Will Hayes (Ryan Reynolds in "Definitely, Maybe"): Ryan looks convincing as a dad, when he tells his daughter Maya the story about how he met her mom. Great story, great dad!
Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle in "Hotel Rwanda"): He tries to keep his family save. that's what a good dad does.
Bob Parr/ Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson in "The Incredibles"): He's the head of a superhero family. Awesome right!!
Peter Mitchell, Michael Kellam and Jack Holden (Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson in "Three Men and a Baby"): Three single men, who live together, find a baby on the doorstep. She's actually Jack daughter, but the three of them decide to take care of her and raise her. How cool would it be to have them as dads, all three!
Ed Bloom (Albert Finney in "Big Fish"): He's a little strange, but he tells the best stories.
Ray Ferrier (Tom Cruise in "War of the Worlds"): The end of the world is near, the earth is being attacked. Ray wasn't a father figure for his kids, but when he needed to, he did everything to keep his children save.
Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks in "Road to Perdition"): His wife and youngest son get killed. Michael flees with his other son, who finds out about his job as a hitman. Not a great rolemodel, but to protect his son he will do everything.
Marlin (Albert Brooks in "Finding Nemo"): Maybe a bit overprotective, but a real dad. He wants to find his son Nemo, whatever it takes.
