Just the other day I was looking for a movie to watch with a friend’s kids. They love High School Musical and all the new movies, but they watch those over and over again. Remembering the movies I loved as a kid–and ones my older kids loved–I started making a list of movies I’d love to share with my young friends. I also asked my Facebook and Twitter friends for input. Enjoy these classic movies to share as a family.
Tricia’s Top Family Movie Picks:
Newsies–My daughter and I love watching it together. The music and dancing are great!
The Parent Trap–This was my favorite movie growing up. I didn’t know my biological father so I always dreamed I had a sister out there somewhere. Come to find out I had FOUR sisters!
Beauty and the Beast–This was the first movie I took my son Cory to. He sat through the whole movie, eyes wide.
Annie (1982 version)–I love the music and I love the story. Carol Burnett cracks me up.
The Princess Bride–This is a family favorite. If you are around the Goyers for any length of time you’ll hear us quoting it!
The Sandlot–This was Cory and Nathan’s favorite movie when they were small. Along with The Land Before Time I can sit there and quote the whole movie!
It’s a Wonderful Life–This is my favorite Christmas Movie. I’d always begged my kids to watch it with me. They were turned off by it being black and white but when they finally watched it they loved it too!
There are so many classic movies to share as a family!
Enjoy! And let me know if I missed any of your family’s favorites!
Even though this is mainly a list of classic films, I would be remiss if I didn’t at least mention Moms’ Night Out. If you just want some good clean hilarity, you have to see it!
Did you know that I actually wrote the book for Mom’s Night Out? You can actually read What I Learned From Writing Moms’ Night Out.
