7. What better movie to watch with dad than the 1997 Father’s Day starring Robin Williams, Billy Crystal and Julia Louis-Dreyfus? This show is about a woman who cons two ex-boyfriends into helping her search for her runaway son. It’s silly, funny and absolutely perfect for watching while eating popcorn and drinking beer with your old man.
