Funny film dads: Alec Baldwin in ”Outside Providence”

PLAYED BY Alec Baldwin

WHO IS HE? A gruff-talking blue-collar dad who sends his trouble-prone teenage son Tim (Shawn Hatosy, right) to a fancy prep school to keep him out of mischief

SETTING AN EXAMPLE In a scene of unexpected poignance, the Old Man shows Tim how to knot a necktie (pictured).

EMBARRASSING MOMENT The Old Man consistently addresses his son as ”Dildo,” which he apparently thinks is a term of endearment.

FATHERLY ADVICE ”Making sex is like a Chinese dinner: It ain’t over til you both get your cookies.”

WHY YOU’LL WATCH The Old Man is actually a loving and tender father — but don’t let him hear you say that.

MORE FATHERLY FUN Just because Baldwin and Geena Davis die at the beginning of Beetlejuice (1988) doesn’t mean they can’t still serve as parental figures to goth girl Winona Ryder.
