IF YOU EVER HURT MY DAUGHTER, I SWEAR TO GOD I’LL LET HER NAVIGATE HER OWN EMOTIONAL GROWTH
That title sure is a mouth full, isn’t it? Well, this is a 4 minute short film based on a wonderful “The New Yorker” article by Sophie Kohn. I’ll be frank, I am a sucker for anything involving Jon Hamm; I think he is Hollywood’s best kept secret. He elevates anything he is a part of, and this is no exception. It is just 4 minutes of Jon Hamm being a progressive father screaming progressive dad ideals. It is a one gag short film, but the punchline is very humorous, and it isn’t a bad message at all for dads to hear when their daughters start dating. It was cute and gave me my fix of Jon Hamm.
Ultimately, I think it is well worth your time. It is word for word based on the article, which is also worth your time. I definitely say, give this a watch. On a side note, Hollywood, please make an Adam West style Batman movie with Jon Hamm as Batman. Do me that favor.
