Dads are often guys that every young boy dreams he could be when he grows up. But they can can also be the worst thing that's ever come into a boy's existence. Just take a look at these movie dads in our list of the worst movie fathers in film history. Be thankful that your old man ain't anything like these dudes, and huge apologies if he is.
God – “The Passion Of The Christ”
If ever a film accurately portrayed a father as a dead-beat dad, The Passion Of The Christ did just that. The dude was a no-show throughout. He slept-in when his son was betrayed. He avoided showing his face at his boy’s last supper. He snoozed through his being crucified. He even stayed in bed while his son asked him to forgive those who were killing him. What a jerk!
Bill Maplewood – “Happiness”
A dad who fantasizes about doing the dirty double duty with little boys is disgusting enough…when he fantasizes about shooting and killing happy people, then roofies the living daylights out of the friend of his little boy and leaves him waking up the next day saying, "I have blood in my BM" though…vomit!
Jack Torrance – “The Shining”
You’re a writer who’s offered a temp job house-sitting at a gigantic, snow-buried hotel through the deep, dark winter. What do you do? Take the gig and bring your wife and kids with you! All you need is your typewriter, some clean undies and a big-wheel so the kid can cruise the halls and encounter ghosts who possess him, Way to go, dad…
Darth Vader – “Star Wars”
Poor Luke Skywalker. Dude goes through life working on all things good and nice. Like an inter-galactic monk or something, he cruises the galaxy, fighting off the ultimate evil, only to eventually get his hand cut off then learn that the spawner of all evil itself, the person who gave him a handectomy is, of all people, his father! Talk about tough love, y’all!
