Movies that show families WAY worse than yours.

There’s nothing better than going to a State Fair to boost your confidentce in both your physical appearance and your parenting style.  C’mon! You know that you’ve thought the same thing at some point.  Especially after seeing a woman with so much body hair she looked positively furry while she was waiting in the concession line in front of you. Then seeing a small child step out from her shadow, you realized that someone actually procreated a child with that mother.

Of course, H’wood is not the shining example of parenthood, by any means.  There are a few movies that will leave you feeling better about the job you do as a parent.  Just click here.  Be sure to come back and leave comments!

    That article took me a bit by surprise as I expected it to be more like you comments (and my thoughts), plus I was rather upset with the unneeded slap at Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. But anyway… When I want to feel better about myself, I pack up the family and head over to Wal-Mart. Nothing makes me feel skinnier, more attractive, and the world’s best parent that to spend some time with a majority of the shoppers at our local Wal-Mart.

    Jay – ain’t that the truth. My kids come out of Wal-Mart looking positively angelic.

    Meet the Parents and The Family Stone are two favorites, here, because we all have extended families that are a little more trouble than they are worth.

    Jay – better than Wal-Mart is the Texas State Fair. (held here in Dallas every October)

    Ben – Two movies I have not seen but have added to my Netflix cue as of now!
