CHEFA movie that focuses on risk-taking, travel and perseverance, Chef teaches the value of experience and its effect on those you choose to take with you. Watch the distant father-son relationship mature into a wholesome bond despite the disjointed family dynamics that originally came with it. The film offers a different perspective on love, life and fulfilment, which is perfect to bond over for any father-son duo. As an added extra, the food cooked in this movie comes from a range of eclectic styles and is sure to leave you drooling over every dish.A GOOFY MOVIEMost people’s teen years are a cringeworthy and confusing experience, and looking back on them many kids thought their parents were their worst enemies. But this warmhearted animation explores fatherhood and early adolescence in a very lighthearted and humorous way. Watching it with your child or parent will bring back fond memories of special moments bonding with Dad.THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESSThe Pursuit of Happyness will have you bawling our eyes out from beginning to end. It explores the extreme financial hardships of a father and a preteen who encounter difficulties while trying to keep the concept of family and the act of caring intact. Will and Jaden Smith play the father and son roles, making us appreciate all the father figures out there who strive to keep their loved ones safe and well cared for on their very last penny.MY WIFE AND KIDSWant to sit back and watch a hilarious 30-minute sitcom? Well, you’re in luck. My Wife and Kids epitomises an upbeat family with a devoted and hilarious father. His three kids, each a couple of years apart, spin themselves into mischievous and comical situations that are never too slick for their father to uncover.INSIDIOUSFor the daring adrenaline junkies out there. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone with a heart condition. Although this movie is centred around a father-son bond, it is taken to the extreme, beyond the physical world, and deals with entities that would scare most of us on any given day. To those brave enough to watch it, we suggest joining four or five companions just to be safe. What a way to bond with the family while comforting each other through this frightening movie. The jump-scares will have you hiding under the covers and sleeping with the lights on. Good luck!
