5 Movies To Watch With The Family

Want a nice, relaxing night? Want a night curled up on the couch with some buttery popcorn, chocolate drops and your favorite people all around you? Looks like you’re in some serious need of a cozy, family movie night!

The problem is everyone in the family likes something different. You like gruesome horror films. Your husband loves a good slapstick comedy. Your son loves anything with an action hero and then you’ve got your sweet little girl who loves fairy-tales and princesses. Well, don’t fret too much. We’ve compiled a quick list of movies that satisfy not only everyone’s movie taste buds but are appropriate for the entire family!

So pop some popcorn, order in some extra greasy pizza and take a night to hang out with your family. Don’t worry about the bills, work or the kids’ messy room. Instead, just pick out and movie and enjoy!

1. Toy Story

The kiddos love the fact that the toys can talk and you’re rolling on the floor every time Mr. Potato Head says a word. It’s a fun film that everyone can love and laugh at.

2. The Neverending Story

This is a classic treat for everyone at any age. It’s an adventure. It’s suspenseful. There’s no way anyone in the family will become bored.

3. E.T.

Another classic story, nominated for Best Picture at the 55th Academy Awards, this picture is not only beautiful but it’s touching, poignant and every one in the room will want a new alien best friend by the end of the film.

4. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Have your family take the journey into the closet. And by the time you’re ready to pop in the sequel, your kids may want to read all the books first!

5. Mary Poppins

Great music, great actors and some even greater life lessons thrown into the mix, who doesn’t love Mary Poppins and the dancing penguins?
