It’s Father’s Day again, and with it come the time-honored rituals: calling the old man, feeling guilty for not making it home more often, etc. But let’s face it: not all dads are beacons of integrity. Some are crotchety; some fiendish; some can shrink you to the size of a Cheerio. With that in mind, we’re turning the spotlight on cinematic father figures with significant character flaws. We invite you to come visit the pantheon of problematic patriarchs—and bring your dad if he’s free. Maybe afterward you’ll be more forgiving of his awful jokes.
