The Best Father’s Day Movies To Stream and Download in 2021

If 2021 has taught us anything, it’s that with all the streaming services available at your fingertips, there’s a movie for every occasion. Father’s Day is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate your favorite guy than by throwing on some comfy pants and settling in for some screen time.

Party watch, or group watch, features make it easy to view content in sync. But if you're video chatting at the same time, this can put a strain on the network. This is why downloading videos before a movie night can help. Downloading video lets viewers avoid streaming problems like buffering, start-up delays, or low-quality images caused by network connectivity issues. A frustration-free movie experience is the best Father's Day gift you can give. (Though, of course, gifting an actual streaming subscription is pretty rad as well!)

We’ve put together a list of films that feature dads that you can stream or download.
