Keep it simple for Father’s Day. A gift, a barbecue and when the mosquitoes get too bad, keep the party going inside with few movies, handpicked by moi!
Caddyshack – When I say oldie but goodie, I mean that from the heart. This “battle of the classes” comedy set on the golf course delivers equal parts comedy, drama with a teeny bit of romance on the side. Although a bit dated, it will still make you laugh with the likes of Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, and Bill Murray’s “Cinderella Story” groundskeeper. Don’t forget the groundhog!
Field of Dreams – “If you build it, they will come”. Redemption story plus father/son bonding fantasy, this movie will draw a tear from Dad’s eye. Superb actors such as Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones and Burt Lancaster create a film that highlights the power of second chances.
The Shawshank Redemption – Based on a Stephen King short story, “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption”, this movie gives the power of hope. In fact, its tagline “Fear can hold you prisoner, hope can set you free”, is not simply an idle sentence slapped on to sell movies. It’s something one should apply to everyday life. There are no gremlins, rabid dogs or “magical negroes” in this story. You probably won’t even have to rent it either, it runs on TNT every weekend, it seems.
You’ll live life more fully.
Enjoy your Father’s Day!
