Father's Day is almost here and it's time to celebrate those dedicated dads in our lives. While many devoted fathers love their kids unconditionally—taking them fishing, showing them how to shoot hoops and half-jokingly threatening potential boyfriends—others also fill the tough role of primary caregiver, be it as a single parent, divorced dad or widower. Over the years, a few movies have positively depicted these single parents as devoted dads who change diapers, sing their babies to sleep and even dress-up as 60-year-old women just to spend time with their kids. Check out our favorite single fathers from film who have all gone to great lengths for their little ones.
