If you're looking for a different way to celebrate Father's Day this year, consider taking dad to the movies. Or, at least, to the room in your house with the best wi-fi connection and a screen. These movies with strong father figures will remind you what the day is all about. Best of all, many of these movies are available to stream on Netflix or Hulu, so it won't cost you much or any extra cash.
There are plenty of great dads across all the genres of film, from dramatic action flicks to heartwarming animated films. Sure, these dads on film might face otherworldly dramas that your own father is unlikely to experience, such as a zombie apocalypse, but the message at the heart of these movies is the same. Dads love their children endlessly, and they will face just about any odds to make sure their kids are safe, happy, and on the right path. You know, just like in real life (minus the zombies).
Whatever you're up to this Father's Day, consider queueing up one of these films that celebrates the best things a father can be. Whether they leave you endlessly laughing or dabbing at tears, these cinematic dads reflect the best traits of all fathers.
