Wow! Almost all of the ‘Dad’ portrayals on Netflix are pretty negative. I hope your Father’s Day is a wonderful one. I have two wonderful daughters and a precious granddaughter so I’m sure I will.
American Dad (2005-11) – Rated TV-14
“”Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane strikes again with this animated comedy about politically conservative CIA agent Stan Smith and his eccentric brood, a family unit that includes a talking goldfish with the brain of an East German athlete.”
Possibly the worst dad on TV – even worse than his animated counterparts on Family Guy and The Simpsons.
Ghost Dad (1990) – Rated PG
“When workaholic widower Elliot Hopper (Bill Cosby) is killed in a tragic accident, his three children — Danny (Salim Grant), Amanda (Brooke Fontaine) and Diane (Kimberly Russell) — are left parentless. Now, Elliot has three days to return from the dead and get his family’s finances and priorities in order. Will he be a better father in the afterlife? Sidney Poitier directs this family film that earned three Young Artist nominations.”
I’ll withhold any jokes about Bill Cosby as a father but Ghost Dad is widely considered one of the worst films of all time.
Mum & Dad (2008) – Not rated
“Polish immigrant Lena accepts a ride with her cheerful co-worker Birdie — only to find herself knocked unconscious and imprisoned by a deranged family of murderers. Now Lena must find a way to appease the demented clan or suffer an agonizing death.”
