craigslistgirl:  Good recommendation! 

Jacqui90:  The Lego Movie is fantastic!! I loved it as an adult (I’ve seen it twice), and even DH liked it! The kids think it’s great too. My nephew got it for his 4th birthday this year.

Maybe classic Disney movies? Kids seem to not watch those these days. I loved Aladdin and The Lion King.

I pretty much love ALL animated kids movies – I feel like most of them have enough subtle jokes for adults and a decent storyline, so entertainment all round. My guess is because animation would take so long that it can’t be a crap project.

You can’t really go wrong with Disney or Pixar movies – only thing is whether the kids have seen them or not. Or if you have anyone that is anti-watching movies more than once.

The Lion King, Aladdin, The Jungle Book? Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Bee Movie, Wall-E, Robots? Tangled?

Jacqui90:  The Princess Bride is one of my all time favorites- that would be on my list for the family with older children

Lego Movie is great!

Disney is always a great choice, as is Pixar!

The Princess Bride is great. Nightmare Before Christmas, the Harry Potter’s (may not be a good choice depending on how strict the parents are), Jumanji, Patch Adams, Flubber, The Goonies, Annie (if they like musicals), Matilda, Holes, Mrs. Doubtfire, Kiki’s Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo (all Japanese animation), and The Black Stallion. Just to name a few, lol.

Jacqui90:  I thought “Brave” was really great, but that isn’t an older one. “Babe” is a great one!

Some animated movies that most people don’t already have: Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 1 & 2, The Croods, Meet The Robbinsons, any Studio Ghibli movie , and Petes Dragon maybe? though mostly for the younger ones.

Jacqui90:  The Croods was a really good movie.  It was actually the movie my husband and I watched right before he proposed.  Yes there are some silly moments but I loved it all in all.  I was mainly focusing on the children’s age and the appropriateness of the movies.

Oh I love Meet The Robinsons!!!! The Croods was good as well. Up, Monsters Inc, Mary Poppins, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, Tangled, Despicable Me 1/2, Cheaper By The Dozen, Cars 1/2, Polar Express… I totally don’t watch kids movies a lot. 😛
