Do you really want a green ogre for a Dad?
Cineplex Inc. recently came out with a survey indicating that many Canadian Dads think their children would like to replace them with the grouchy, but lovable green ogre, Shrek.
I don't know about you, but Shrek really doesn't top my list of ideal Dads.
The survey also found that, given the chance to select one of Hollywood's leading men, almost one-third of daughters would pick Johnny Depp as the actor they would be most concerned about bringing home to meet dear ol' Dad.
I don't think I would have any concerns with Johnny Depp...but then again, I'm not a Dad.
When fathers were asked what animated movie character they felt their children would name to replace them on Father's Day, they indicated Shrek as their kids' number one choice followed by The Incredibles' Bob Parr and The Lion King's Mufasa.
"It's shaping up to be a tough Father's Day for Canadian men," says Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. "From one of Hollywood's leading heartthrobs to a big green ogre -- this may not be the picture of rest and relaxation fathers anticipated."
The movie-going survey was intended to provide fun facts and figures about Canadians and their relationships with the movies.
And since it is Father's Day this Sunday, maybe a show and popcorn might not be such a bad idea for treating Dad on his special day...or Shrek.

What a degrading and stupid survey responders unwittingly care to answer.
