The male "father figure" has not been portrayed as the brightest
by Hollywood lately. We've seen Ward Cleaver evolve into Al Bundy,
Homer Simpson and most recently, Modern Family's Phil Dunphy. The
latter three, despite what may be deemed as subpar IQs, seem not
only to put food on the table, but to surround that table with a
massive home. Not bad.
A trailer for the new film "What to Expect When You're
Expecting" shows a group of dads razzing a new dad on his
assumptions vs. reality.
That got me thinking: Why not round up a few dads to talk about
our "expectations" and how the reality turned out.
The answers follow.
