Favorite Parent/Child Movies and Shows

I love movies.  Of course, now that I have young children, I don't watch as many as I used to, but I have not completely given up my familiar little red envelope membership.

I'm feeling nostalgic for some of my favorite movies and t.v. shows featuring parent/child relationships, and I thought I'd share 10 of them with you.  As always, I would love to hear about any of your favorites as well.

In no particular order, here are 10 of my faves:

1.  Baby Boom (movie).

(Diane Keaton.  The 80's.  The dreamy vet.  The adorable baby.  Pure awesomeness).

2.  Modern Family (t.v. series).

3.  Parent Trap (the original movie).

4.  Mr. Mom (movie).

(LOL.  Micheal Keaton as a SAHD)

5.  Big Daddy (movie).

6.  Friday Night Lights (the t.v. series).

7.  Father of the Bride (movie).


8.  Parenthood (the original movie).

9.  The Middle (t.v. series). 

10.  Gilmore Girls (t.v. series).

P.S.  Steve Martin is awesome (he is in two of these).  While I'm on the subject, it may not a parenting movie per se, but do watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles featuring Steve Martin if you have not seen it before.

Now I just want a day to sit around and watch all of these, drink Diet Coke, and eat Twizzlers  (Ha!).
