I think the Best dad for kids & dads to watch together is Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum 2. Ben may have goofed at times, but he always put his son first

By Melanie,   From Cordova
Aliens in the Attic is a movie that dads and kids will have fun watching together!

By Heather,   From Georgetown
The dad, Sean Tuohy, in The Blind Side was the best supportive dad because he was great!

By David,   From Phoenix
Best starring role for a dad – was Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino, he saw through what spoiled selfish kids he had and helped people that needed it!

By Diane,   From West bloomfield
Nice selection of books

By Maja,   From Chico
The Sound of Music. I love that movie.

By Heather,   From Chilhowie
1.Best film about dads and kids
Mrs. Doubtfire! Robin Williams loves his Children so much that he changed into a woman to see his kids!

By Tim,   From Green Bay
My daughter & I watched "World's Greatest Dad" just lastw eek together and we cracked up during the whole thing which is something I cherish. Not the most influential movie but it worked as a bonding time for us at the time.

By Deborah,   From Pennsboro
I think the best 2009 film for dads and kids to watch together is "UP."

By Jeana,   From Austin
A Christmas Carol is a great movie for kids and dads to watch together during the Holiday season!

By Jay,   From Lisle
It was a light year for us seeing the movies, and few were Dad flicks. The only one we saw together with the kids was Paul Blart Mall Cop, which would fit the bill for #2 on your list.

By Sandra,   From Robins
Best Dad fo rKids and Dads to watch toghter: Ben Stiller in Night at Museum 2.
I love that the dad (ben Stiller) realizes that he needs to spend more time with with his kid.

By Ed,   From Skokie
2. Best film to watch with your kids: "Up"; it was a grand experience and we talked about it a lot afterward.

By Timothy,   From Lexington
Best film FOR dads and kids to watch together:

We just enjoyed watching The Princess and the Frog

By Darcie,   From Rochester Hills
I vote for Imagine That as a film that fathers and children should see together.

By Karen,   From Bridgeport
We loved Madagascar :)

By Faith,   From Abilene
My Dad and I like to watch the von Trapp family in the Sound of Music

By Harriet,   From Salado
My vote for the movie for Dad and kids to watch together, at this time of the year, is the 70's version of Scrooge, starring Albert Finney. Great values flick.

By Douglas,   From Salado
would have to be Sean Touhy in the movie "The Blind Side"

By Melissa,   From Baltimore

Best film for dads and kids to watch together I think would be UP-it was just a cute lovely movie

By Stephanie,   From Barrie
Best dad in a film would have to be Ben Stiller in Night in the Museum 2, although Ice Age 3 is a great one for dad to watch with their kids. We all laughed hysterically over that film and there is a message about family in there.

By Sarah,   From Westminster
Best film for dads and kids to watch together: The Princess and the Frog, which just opened this week. It's an animated movie that's great for everyone in the family.

By Sherri,   From Pinetown
Knowing was a fantastic father/son movie. I really don't think it got the credit it deserved. The love shown between father and son (2 generations worth) is amazing!!!! If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it!!!

By Ken,   From Keyport NJ
My favorite Dad and Son movie and traditional cartoon is Disney's Pinocchio. Please accept my entry. Thank you.

By mel,   From Kittanning
For best starring role for a Dad, how about Eddie Murphy in Imagine That? He's not a completely ideal Dad, but at least he recognizes it.

By Theresa,   From Monticello
I think dads and kids would love seeing Kung Fu Panda. It's fun and kids can learn from it

By Marjorie,   From Woodstock
There are not a lot of great movies out there with great dads, however, I vote for Steve Martin, who has new movie out, Christmas Day. He is always a cool dad or he tries to be.
I would love to win this Christmas giveaway to share with my family.

Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

By Glenn,   From Trevose
For the best film for Dads and kids to watch together, I would choose Up as it has a great message about what's important in life and that just being with family is it's own adventure.

By Bethie,   From South Amboy
Best films for Dads and kids to watch together: Monsters VS Aliens. My family just laughs and laughs with that one.

By Bethie,   From South Amboy
Best films for Dads and kids to watch together: Monsters VS Aliens. My family just laughs and laughs with that one.

By Jonnie,   From Edmonton
I think Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is a good movie for Dads and kids to watch together. Their relationship starts off really rocky,but by the end the dad realizes he has to accept his son as he is.

By Sue,   From Durango
Best supporting dad. I just saw The Blind Side and Sean Tuohy was a great supporting dad. Thanks for the great giveaway.

By Angie,   From Brownsville
Best film FOR dads and kids to watch together-Up In The Air. The whole family really enjoyed it.

By Benita,   From Bronx
My best dad in the best starring role for a dad category is Lance Clayton in World's Greatest Dad. He wants to do the right thing for his son, for his students and for himself. And I like Robin Williams, he plays a great role as a dad.


By Alicia,   From Winchester
I think that boys and their fathers should watch UP together. The message to me is that sometimes a "father" won't always arrive in the form of biological genetics, and that sometimes a "father" is a man who sticks by you, listens to you, helps you when you are in need, and teaches you to do the homorable thing. To me, UP was about love, both conventional (with his wife) and unexpected (with Russel).

By Mike,   From Holiday
i want to win



By Paul,   From San Francisco
wow. great books, but I'll have to give some thought on all 4!

Best about dads and kids: The Road - bleak and depressing but honest about the existential legacy of fathers

Best for Dads and Kids - Madagascar 2 - we laughed our tails off!

Best dad - Ben Stiller in Night at Museum 2 - wins the day, again!

Best supporting dad - Jeffrey Tambor in The Hangover - now that's a great dad-in-law!

Anyone see The Father in Korean?

By Kelly,   From Newark
The best movie about dads and kids of 2009 was The Boys Are Back. I loved the way it shows their growth as a family after pretty much being a free-for-all.

By Cathy,   From jacksonville
I love Christmas themed books. It helps get me in the spirit and helps remind me of the true meaning of Christmas-Christ's birth and redemption for us all.
