For Father's Day: Top Ten "Daddy Issues" Movies

Categories: Lists

10. Blame It On Rio
In honor of Father's Day, we put together a list of our favorite daddy issue flicks. The first movie featured is the 1984 "rom-com" Blame It On Rio, an unintentionally creepy gem about a young girl (Michelle Johnston) who becomes infatuated with her Dad's friend (Michael Caine) on a family vacation. The movie is based on a '70s French film called Un Moment D'égarement. There's an especially uncomfortable scene where Johnston's character and her friend, (Demi Moore) frolic topless on the beach in front of their own fathers.

9. The Royal Tenenbaums
Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) is a lousy father figure who leaves his once-prodigy children with all kinds of emotional scars.

8. Factory Girl
Factory Girl portrays the rise and fall of '60s "it" girl Edie Sedgwick, and highlights the socialites deeply rooted daddy issues.

7. The Savages
A brother and sister take care of their ailing dad.

6. The Ballad of Jack and Rose
A father and his daughter live together on an isolated island, and at one point in the movie share a super skin-crawly father-daughter kiss.
