I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a father-daughter movie – I definitely haven’t seen one this year – but dad movie 2016 was so cute, so sweet, and so thoughtful that it was just a lovely and poignant reminder of the wonderful, beautiful, and precious world of kids.
And it was the only movie I could find this year that was just as much about the parents as it was about the kids. It’s a movie about a dad who has a secret daughter that he’s been telling everyone he knows about for years, but it’s the only movie this year that didn’t tell us about the parents by saying, “Well, it’s a parent movie, so you can probably guess that” or “Oh, you should go buy the book to read it in.
The movie is about a father whose daughter is being abducted by a band of terrorists. When they realize that the girl isnt a terrorist, the dad decides that it’s time for him to get her back. He goes to a video store and finds the book he’s been reading to tell the girl. The dad goes along with this plan and helps him with his daughter, at one point even helping him get her out of the car and into the arms of a cop.
I love that the dad lets his daughter find all the books to read on the internet. It’s an incredible message, even if they don’t want to come right out and say it. If you’re reading this, I pray you have a good father.
I think dad movies were a mistake for the father movie genre (which was made up of a lot of dad movies). I’d argue that dad movies should be made up of the woman who is the love of the father’s life. The dad is happy when his daughter makes her first move into the dating scene and decides to take her out for dinner. When he meets this woman, he realizes that it’s not going to be easy for him to let her go.
When a father movie has a woman, the plot usually involves a lot of sexual tension between the father and daughter. I think the problem was that dad movies only addressed one side of the relationship and not the other. A dad movie could be about this woman and her boyfriend and he decides to take her out for dinner but then decides to stay home and watch some romantic movies.
Not a dad movie. But in movies like this I see the same thing: A man gets a woman and then leaves her for a while. He has to come back to find her. So as a father, I would have thought it would be a good idea to have a woman come to a dad movie with a boyfriend and we would have been able to see a lot more of that.
Actually, I have to admit that I don’t really see this movie as a dad movie. I don’t see it as a man and a woman having a relationship that has gone bad. I see it more as a man coming to a woman and telling her that he loves her and wants her to stay. That would have been a dad movie.
I don’t know what to make of this movie. Although it’s obviously a dad movie.
its funny because at the end at the end of the trailer you can see the man and woman holding hands in the end. At first I thought it was supposed to be a man and a woman holding hands. Then I realized it was just a man and a woman holding hands. At the end, they are holding hands. At the end, the man says it was a mistake.
