The Top Ten Fathers On Film | 2. Marlin, Finding Nemo
2. Marlin, Finding Nemo

Like Woody Allen with gills, he's too neurotic to even leave his anemone home without breaking into a sweat (or whatever fish do when they're nervous - dry out?). But when his plucky little son is fishnapped by a diver he fearlessly braves jellyfish, sharks and Ellen Degeneres to get him back. And he accomplishes all this with only a seven second memory.

Fatherly advice: Don't judge a book by its cover, or a shark by its big sharp scary teeth. And don't smoke anything a turtle offers you.

See also: Mufasa from The Lion King. Only with added death.
