Grab your popcorn (and some tissues) and get ready for a fun day in front of the TV with your dad ❤️

To binge-watch

Stranger Things

In anticipation of season 4 of Stranger Things, it's time to revisit this nostalgic sci-fi series and appreciate Jim Hopper - the chief police of the small town of Hawkins, who rescues Eleven and later becomes her adoptive father.

Arrested Development

Every family is dysfunctional in their own way and the relationship between Michael Bluth in Arrested Development with his own family perfectly reflects that - all while he combats moral and legal obstacles of course.


Prefer an action-packed thriller instead? The Taken franchise starring Liam Neeson is the perfect trilogy! Car chases, hand-to-hand combat, heart racing music - they've got it all.

To cry over

Finding Nemo

If you've never seen Finding Nemo (2003) before, Father's Day is the day to check that off the list. Take a dive into the ocean as you journey along with Marlin and Dory on their mission to find Nemo. It's a real tear-jerker, so get your tissues ready for this one.


Keep the emotional train going by putting on Up (2009) - arguably one of Pixar's most moving film ever made. Watch the relationship between Carl Fredricksen and Russell bloom throughout the movie and feel the tears come on.

The Pursuit of Happyness

Featuring Will Smith and his real-life son, Jaden Smith, this film is based on a true story of a struggling single dad who dreams of a better life for his child. Tears are guaranteed for this one, so don't put the tissue box away just yet.

To laugh out loud to

The Game Plan

Throw it back to 2007 with The Game Plan, starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson who finds out that he has an 8-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. Chaos naturally ensues as he navigates his newly-found family, career and love life.

Daddy's Home

Between Will Ferrell's well-mannered, clean-cut attitude and Mark Wahlberg's charming, muscular personality, get ready for belly laughs as Daddy's Home (2015) brings you a combination of slapstick comedy and well-timed humor.

Mrs. Doubtfire

When it comes to comedy films starring Robin Williams, you're guaranteed to have a good laugh throughout the movie - and Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) is no exception. Watch the late actor go from divorced actor in the beginning of the film to disguising as a female housekeeper in order to keep in contact with his children.
