If you’re looking for fun Father’s Day movies to watch with your dad, check out some of the best real-life father-daughter and father-son actors teaming up to play father-daughter and father-son characters for the movies on this list. From Oscar-worthy movies and family-friendly films to action-packed adventures and R-rated comedies, there’s sure to be some Father’s Day favorites on this list:
Movies Starring Father-Daughter Actors
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – One of Hollywood’s most famous father-daughter pairs may be polar opposites, but they did manage to work together on this sexy action flick. It may not be one of the best feel-good Father’s Day movies, but most fathers will appreciate Angelina Jolie running around in Lara Croft-wear (making them hardly notice that disappearing dad John Voigt is there).
Hannah Montana: The Movie – I’m not even going to pretend I saw this one, but I’m sure you’re better off letting your Miley Cyrus fan watch her and her achy-breaky-hearted father in this family-friendly film than letting her see what the artist formerly known as Hannah Montana is up to now. The father-daughter actors here are definitely the most well-known to the younger generation, perfect for keeping the young ‘uns entertained so you can enjoy a little peace and quiet on Father’s Day.
Paper Moon – And here we have the most critically acclaimed father-daughter actors in a movie together. Ryan and Tatum O’Neal definitely had tumultuous lives, so it’s best to remember them as they are here: as a con-man and the daughter of a prostitute scamming poor widows into buying imaginary Bibles. Definitely not a family-friendly movie for Father’s Day, but worth watching to see Tatum O’Neal earn the honor of becoming the youngest Academy Award winner ever.
Movies Starring Father-Son Actors
Pursuit of Happyness – This is actually probably one of the best Father’s Day movies on this list, a feel-good flick based on a true story and starring two of the most likeable father-son actors in Hollywood. Will Smith plays a homeless man living with his son (real-life son Jaden Smith) that won’t give up on his dream of building a better life for them. Does he succeed? (Take a wild guess.) It’s definitely one of the best Father’s Day movies for focusing on what you’ll be celebrating that on Father’s Day: family. However, dads beware; it might make you look bad.
Wall Street – This is one of the best Father’s Day movies for dads that work hard for a living and can’t understand their kids’ greedy obsession with seemingly easy money these days. Charlie Sheen plays a stockbroker tempted by greed (in the devilish form of his hero, Gordon Gekko). However, his blue collar father (Martin Sheen) just doesn’t understand his twisted values. So for teaching kids a valuable life lesson, this is definitely one of the best Father’s Day movies on this list.
The Heartbreak Kid – And here’s one of the best Father’s Day movies for a father-son pair that enjoy their R-rated comedies. The Farrelly brothers pair father-son actors Jerry and Ben Stiller together for this raunchy comedy, all about what happens when you find out that the perfect girl isn’t as perfect as she seems. Jerry Stiller steals the show with his hot tub scene, and the ending will definitely surprise you. So if you and dad don’t mind a little skin and a lot of dirty jokes, then this might be one of the best Father’s Day movies for a little male bonding.
So whether you and your dad enjoy action, comedy, or movies with a message, spend Father’s Day in a creative way by watching some of the best father-daughter and father-son actors stay related for these movie reels.
