James Bond is certainly the antithesis of a “good father.” He doesn’t have children, is not in a stable relationship, drinks too much, gambles, and solves problems with violence. Furthermore, I don’t think I want my daughters growing up to be “Bond Girls” either. That being said, my father introduced me to the iconic spy, and I can’t wait to share the films with my kids some day too.

Skyfall marks the return of Daniel Craig as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007, as well as Judi Dench reprising her role as M.  The film also stars franchise newcomers Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem and Naomie Harris, and is directed by Sam Mendes from a screenplay written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are producers.
