When I asked my husband this question, I was very surprised by his answers.  It lead me to realize that it depends on your point of view.  I was expecting the same answer as mine which was Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird.


I was thinking in terms of who would make a great real dad when my husband answered about a dad that truly entertained him.  He answered Arnold Schwarzenegger in Jingle All the Way.


I said “What are you crazy?  He is a total screw up and let down as a dad in that movie.  I know he came through in the end, but before that he disappointed his son time after time.”  My husband said that he was a totally entertaining dad and at least I hadn’t answered Darth Vader.

    Atticus Finch is hard to beat. He is a great dad and I would also place George Bailey from “It’s A Wonderful Life” up there too.
