Minority Report

Great detective thriller- Spielberg shows that he has a dark side. All of Spielberg's movies are about broken homes and absent fathers. This Spielberg movie has a twist- it's the son who is absent and the father (Cruise) who is suffering for it. Don't you just want to take one of the children missing a dad from another Spielberg movie, and get Cruise to adopt him in this one? You could create a Minority Report/A.I. mashup, where Cruise is tired of suffering over the loss of his missing son, so he adopts Haley Joel Osment's robot from A.I. and live happily ever after!
