He’s the first man in your life, your dad, and if he’s anything like ours, he won’t want a big fuss on Father’s Day. But show us a dad who hates watching movies while parked on the couch with a beer, and we’ll show you Jimmy Hoffa riding a unicorn. The list of Father’s Day movies below isn’t made up of “dad films”—those insanely long Westerns directed by Sergio Leone or naval action movies like Master and Commander. Nope: These are titles that expressly salute the very best of fatherhood, from multiple Academy Award winners and foreign films, to Wes Anderson’s most emotional slice of domestic comedy.
