Throughout cinematic history, movie dads -- outside of Disney -- have often gotten a bad rap. From absentee fathers like in "E.T." to abusive monsters like Jack Huston's character in "Chinatown," movies aren't always the place to go to look for solid father figures.
However, really solid dads are out there in the movies -- you just have to know where to look for them. And since you're -- like us! -- probably single this Valentine's Day, you should do yourself a solid and find out which great, iconic movie dad is the right one for you.
May luck -- and, uh, the Force -- be with you, and be sure to check out "Big Daddy" when it premieres on Sunday, February 8 at 2 p.m. ET on MTV!
