The Scariest Protective Movie Dads
There are basically two types of movie dads who are so protective, they’re scary. There’s the dad who jokingly, but not jokingly, refuses to accept his teen daughter’s personal life. They’re pretty exclusive to rom-coms. And then there’s the ex-badass-still-badass dad, now retired, who springs into action when his daughter is kidnapped. Both these types can instill fear in people — the former in unsuspecting boyfriends, and the latter in bad guys stupid enough to cross him. And both are time-tested archetypes we all love. These scary protective dads are our favorites.
