Five Movie Scenes that Make Me Want to Be a Father

The subject has been brought up more than once:  parenthood.  I’m a married man.  I’m still a fairly young man but as I get older the decision to become a father is one that gnaws on me all the time.   I mean I love being an Uncle but being a father is a whole other story.   I just don’t think I’m ready for it.

However, there are times in my life where I really do want to become a dad.  And sometimes it’s from watching certain scenes in movies (and in life).

Here are five movie scenes that make me want to be a father…..

Field of Dreams – Hey Dad, Want to Have a Catch?

I mean how can you not want to cry watching this scene?  It’s nearly impossible.   What a great movie.   I’m pretty sure that any male whose got a dad went nuts on this scene.  I know I called my pop right after I saw this movie.

I would say the peeing part is clearly the best.  However,  this is a great little montage of scenes that kind of makes me long to have a little kid.  Then again, they don’t really show much of the pooping and crying and non fun stuff so whatever.

“Mind your language.”  Point here is that no matter what fathers are into, they can still be good fathers and it’s fun as hell to watch.

There’s a scene in the movie where Dennis Quaid tells his son he’s become a major leaguer.  It’s definitely a tear jerker.  Even more awesome because it’s a true story.

Kramer vs. Kramer – French Toast

Fast forward to 5:50. This is one of the best scenes in the history of movies.  I seriously don’t want to ruin it for anyone but if it’s not a scene that makes a grown man cry then I don’t know what is.

It’s moments like these when you can appreciate the father and son dynamic.  I mean in this movie you don’t really want to be a father because you feel so bad for the child, but then again when things go the right way it’s so great that there’s a son to share these moments with.
