The 10 Spot: 10 Horrible Movies My Dad Loves

I owe a lot to my dad when it comes to my film-going childhood. He'd drop me off at the theater, go drink at the nearest dive-bar, and then drive me home. Bonding. I pay him back nowadays by delivering him a weekly supply of my leftovers, the films that get me through each and every night at work. I shouldn't say I give him all the films I watch. I know his taste, if nobody dies, there are no punches thrown, nothing explodes, or there's no nudity I just spare him the nuisance. It takes a particular type of film to please my father, and some of them suck assholes. Happy Father's Day to any and all! If my dad knew how to read the internet he'd love this shit.

Great Idea

My dad works for a film festival and introduced me to good cinema, yet for some inexplicable reason he likes the D-grade thriller Untraceable. He thought it was clever. I don't get it. Haha.

Funny list and smart idea. I think this is a concept we all can relate to.

My Dad likes the dumbest comedies ever made. Anything with slapstick. You've never seen a grown man laugh so hard as he does when Daniel Stern gets hit in the head with a brick in Home Alone 2 or Joe Montegna's crotch on fire in Baby's Day Out.

Yes I have. My dad lost his mind when we saw Home Alone 2 and that brick scene happened. I used to watch it all the time as a kid and we would laugh everytime. Cool to see someone else has a similar experience.

This is a great list. Many of those movies are personal guilty pleasures of mine. My Dad's criteria for movie night is "it must contain an aircraft carrier". He's also a connoisseur of sorts of Steven Seagal movies. I keep trying to steer him towards slightly "smarter" action flicks but we usually end up watching Pearl Harbour.
