For Father's Day: Top Ten "Daddy Issues" Movies

10. Blame It On Rio In honor of Father's Day, we put together a list of our favorite daddy issue flicks. The first movie featured is the 1984 "rom-com" Blame It On Rio, an unintentionally creepy gem about a young girl (Michelle Johnston) who becomes infatuated with her Dad's friend (Michael Caine) on a family vacation. The movie is based on a '70s French film called Un Moment D'égarement. There's an especially uncomfortable scene where Johnston's character and her friend, (Demi Moore) frolic topless on the beach in front of their own fathers.
