Showdown

Come to Daddy

Best movie dads/patriarchs

Add a list or tag with showdown:father

Hello, Junior. We want to find out which film fathers, stepfathers, long-lost fathers and father figures you admire the most (but please, let’s leave the Godfather out of this). List your ten favorite movie dads in all their fantastic, complicated, goofy, exasperated, tender, surprising, zombie-busting glory. Any fool with a dick can make a baby, but only a real man can raise his children. Whether it’s because they have a very particular set of skills, or a talent for making Beatles solo hits mixtapes, or a great line in wigs, fake teeth and terrible jokes, we just wanna know which dads you’d happily take a train to Busan with.
