Dumb & Dumber has to rank right up there. Sort of a family tradition. You understand.

Oh, no, two birthers, they were, and the fathers of the movement as I understand it. A real hoot, too. Highly recommended, especially if you appreciate Jeff Daniels' work.

FREQUENCY. Probably the only Father’s day gift I sent to my dad after graduation.

If you don’t choke up after Jim Caveziel tells his father, Dennis Quaid (while in the future speaking to the past) that it’s really him, you don’t have a pulse.

Not exactly time travel .... more like communication across time periods.

Great movie!

Okay. Okay. Enough of the jokes. Pops and I always loved Midway. We saw it together at the premier release in the theatre. (Remember those?) The frenetic, suspenseful action was unlike anything I'd ever experienced. Still remember the rollicking auditory experience and my vivid reminiscence to this day.

LOL. Not archetypical father and son movie, but Back to the Future. The son has to help his past father win the mother, or he ceases to exist.

I raised my kids on John Wayne. There is always an underlying moral lesson in each of his movies. Besides that there are great movies to watch.
