Father’s Day Films Starring Dad

June 13, 2012

To us, Dad isn’t just the ultimate grillmaster and talented handyman that he claims to be, but also a source of strength and inspiration. This Father’s Day, we decided to honor him with these classic popular films, which remind us how important he is in our lives. Whether teaching us how to dream big, leading us into some wild adventure, or defending us from the bad guys, we want to thank Dad for everything he does.

Field of Dreams
Kevin Costner stars in this 1980’s sports fantasy-drama as an Iowa corn farmer who hears voices and is compelled to build a baseball field on his farm. Soon after, he does, and the Chicago Black Sox come.

National Lampoon’s Vacation
Chevy Chase stars as the unforgettably silly Clark Griswald, the enthusiastic Dad who takes his family on a cross country road trip to Wally World. What starts off as a regular summer vacation turns into a wacky adventure through the “real” America in this lighthearted family comedy.

To Kill a Mockingbird
In this Academy-Award winning adaptation of the 1960’s classic by Harper Lee, Gregory Peck brilliantly embodies Atticus Finch, a highly respected and courageous lawyer who defends a black man in a trial. The timeless story chronicling race, prejudice, and injustice is told from the point of view his six-year-old daughter Scout (Mary Badham).

The Incredibles
Dad is an retired superhero who finds himself working at an insurance company, protected under the Superhero Protection Program. But after he’s summoned to lead a highly classified assignment, he and the rest of his superhero family comes out of hiding, using their incredible talents to fight the bad guys in this action-packed animated family film.
