As parents it is always tough to find time to watch a kids movie that really isn’t made with adults in mind at all because they are so incredibly dull. Some of most successful movies are not catered for kids or adults but are there for the entire family to enjoy and have fun parts for the kids and in-jokes for adults to snigger at. With this in mind here are some of the top movies that the entire family can enjoy.
All Disney Movies/Tangled
It is safe to say that sitting down as a family and watching any Disney movie is going to result in a fantastic time and everyone in the family taking great enjoyment in what they are watching. The great thing about Disney is that they have such a range of movies to pick from.
I was lucky enough to find some time to go and see the 50th Disney Animated movie this week, Tangled, with my girlfriend and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Before the film started I took the time to take a look round the cinema and noted that pretty much everyone there was part of a family and it is then you realise that Disney has still got it.
Back To The Future
Now this one might not sound like something that too many families sit down and watch but it is a movie (along with its two sequels) that really does keep everyone entertained for the entire duration of the film. When the movie was re-released in 2010 to celebrate the anniversary and Blu-Ray release I went to go and see it at the cinema (wasn’t around the first time) and as we got up to leave the cinema the kids behind us told their parents how much they loved the movie. I was somewhat considering it is a late 80s movie but relieved as one of my favourite movies of all time remains timeless.
The Wizard Of Oz
I could be slaughtered for this but it is arguably the best big-screen musical of all time showing just how children manage to get through and take on their fears. The reason I have included this movie in the list is because despite it being nearly 75 years old when you put kids that have never seen the film in front of the screen they are still impressed by it and still sit back and enjoy it. You can sit down with your family once a year to enjoy this movie as a family too which is why it is so appealing. On top of this it is recognised as one of the best movies of all time and not to show this to everyone in the family would be a crime!
