Father’s day maybe a few weeks away but I thought I come up with a list of great movies to watch with your dad. Here are movies that I watched over the years that you might enjoy watching. Here is the 8 Movies to watch with your dad on father’s day.

He got game

Ray Allen plays the role of Jesus Shuttlesworth, a rising basketball star who is being pursued by a lot of colleges. Denzel Washington plays the role of Jesus’ dad who is a convicted felon who accidentally kills his wife. Jesus despises his father for her mother’s death.

Jake is being offered parole in exchange for his son playing for Big State but Jake is having a hard time of convincing Jesus as he blames Jake for her mother’s death.

This a great movie to watch and Spike Lee did a good job mixing basketball with drama.

Later in the movie, he seeks the assistance of a lawyer named Rita (Michelle Pieffer) who was force to take Sam’s custody case to prove to her peers that she is not heartless. While Rita is helping her with the case, he helps her mend her relationship with his son.
