Movies are an amazing way to get in touch with your inner emotions. They will make you feel something. So, at the end of the movie, you will either be laughing, crying or sad or happy. Movies have an impact on our emotions whether we like it or not.

Seeing as Father’s Day is just around the corner, I decided to compile a list of movies that 1) will make you want to bear-hug your father and 2) you should go watch with your dad right now!

Father Hug Rating: 6/10

Before Adam Sandler started making really sucky movies, he used to be quite entertaining. Big Daddy was one of those. This one’s about a man child who is given an actual child to take care of. He learns to take care of the child and in time grows to love him.

4. To Kill a Mockingbird

Father Hug Rating: 10/10

One of Steve Martin’s best performances, this film depicts the life (and thoughts) of every father who has to deal with the fact that his daughter, his little girl, is growing up and is going to get married. A truly funny, touching comedy about how a father has to deal with all these changes!
