Looking for something to watch with the kids? These are the 51 best family movies to watch and will bring you back to your childhood!
We love family movie nights! Cuddling up on the couch with popcorn, lights off and snuggled under blankets. My oldest son is my biggest movie buff. He is constantly looking for something new to watch.
So lately I have been digging deep for some of those oldies but goodies that I grew up watching! These are the movies that, even now when they come on TV, I get totally sucked into!
Depending on the age of your kids, you may want to edit the list and make sure they are age appropriate, but for the most part, they are all pretty family friendly (this coming from someone whose 3 year-old knew every word to every Star Wars – you have been warned!)

Thank you for this list. However, Toy is a racist film; many believed Pryor’s role was modern-day slavery, and degrading on all counts.
