Father of the Bride (1950,1991)
Rated NR, PG
Mr. Banks gets caught up in the barely controlled mayhem surrounding his only daughter’s wedding. Class struggle, premarital jitters and a whole lot of grumpy comedy mark this as a classic film you shouldn’t miss.
Field of Dreams (1989)
An Iowa farmer who hears a mysterious voice telling him to turn his cornfield into a baseball diamond. He does, but the voice’s directions don’t stop — even after the spirits of deceased ballplayers turn up to play. James Earl Jones and Burt Lancaster co-star as a reclusive writer and a young slugger turned doctor, respectively, with Ray Liotta turning in a pivotal performance as “Shoeless” Joe Jackson.
Mr. Mom (1983)
The husband goes to work, while the wife cares for the house and the kids — the happily traditional American family. But when Dad gets fired, Mom has to start working. Fine, Dad will stay home with the kids. Problem is, this early-’80s dad doesn’t know what to do. The grocery store, the soap operas, the high-tech kitchen appliances — it’s all too much for a guys’ guy raised to be a breadwinner, not a bread baker!
My Father the Hero (1994)
Talk about mistaken identities! When Andre, a Frenchman, takes his 14-year-old daughter Nicole on a Caribbean vacation, she develops a crush on hunky Ben. To impress Ben, Nicole pretends Andre is her lover — which has the rest of the resort crowd loathing his cradle-snatching ways. When police threaten to arrest him for consorting with a minor, Nicole must tell all and risk alienating Ben.
River Runs Through It (1992)
Two fly-fishing brothers, straitlaced scholar Norman and trouble-finding gambler Paul, struggle to mollify their Presbyterian preacher father’s lofty moral — and fishing — standards.
