The Greatest Film Father?

Jonah Goldberg tweeted about how Richard Dreyfuss portrayed a worthless father in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

The father in "Taken," of course, is not just great, he has skills.

Taken is a divorced father with an estranged daughter's fantasy film. I speak from the experience of being a divorced father with an estrained daughter, not from being a commando able to rescue her from a desperate situation of being kidnapped overseas...

You may well be correct. You're certainly closer to the situation than I am.

I always saw his relationship with his daughter to be reasonably good.

His former wife, on the other hand, was another story.
