We’ve reached Father’s Day and it’s time for all of us to start thinking of dear old Dad. Each year around Father’s Day, children tip their cap to their fathers by performing an annual rite of passage: handing over bad gifts to Dad, such as gaudy ties or “cute” coffee mugs that say things that your dad probably thought was stupid. In short, you honor him with something completely meaningless that somehow still honors the guy. And in that vein, I present to you my gift to my own father- a list of movie dads whose asses my dad could kick.

He’s a ghost, for crying out loud. If I know one thing for certain about my dad, it’s that he could beat the crap out of a dead guy. And my dad doesn’t throw like a girl, either.

This weekend, NBC will be airing It’s a Wonderful Life. Love it or hate it, it’s such an integral part of holiday tradition for a lot of families. I know that we certainly watched it around the holidays in my home when I was a kid, and I try to catch at least a few scenes of it each year. Naturally, this breeds familiarity. We know all of the characters like the back of our hands because we re-visit them every 12 months. With this familiarity in my holster, I’ve generated some mashups of It’s a Wonderful Life with some other films. Every time a bell rings, classic movie characters are defiled via Photoshop.
