Top Ten Best Family Movies

A bit dated ain't it? The Simpsons Movie, now that's a brilliant animation.
Doesn't hold a candle to Sunshine on Leith, Scrooge or Oliver! In terms of musicals
Could you please stop criticizing every musical movie and comparing them to Oliver? It's annoying. Just because you like it better doesn't mean others aren't great. I like The Lion King better than The Shawshank Redemption but that doesn't mean it's a bad movie. Seriously. Also out of Oliver Twist's adaptions the only one I have seen is Disney's Oliver & Company but guess what? It's one of my absolute favorites AND I love it more than others like Finding Nemo and Frozen. But I still enjoy these two as well. So there. Lighten up already!V1 Comment
I would love too see real toys do what the Commando Elite did; punch their way out of the box and wage war on other toys.
We are the Commando Elite, everything else, is just a toy. And then The Spice Girls is being blared out on the stereo.
Major Chip Hazzard was uber badass especially considering he was voiced by Tommy Lee Jones.
Unlike the Disney princesses on this list, the Spice Girls are true role models with their "Girl Power" attitude.
Michael Barrymore is funny as Mr Step the army dance teacher.
Like Mamma Mia! Sunshine on Leith is adapted from a stage musical in which a bunch of songs from an established artist are foisted into position in such a way that they form a narrative plot.
In other words, Sunshine on Leith does for the Proclaimers songbook what Mamma Mia! Did for the ABBA songbook.
If you know anything about the songs of The Proclaimers you could go "Somebody will promise to walk 500 Miles, somebody will be on their way from misery to happiness, somebody will be called (Oh) Jean who very probably should have loved and there's bound to be a big proposal of marrage, You can easily predict these plot points based on the lyrics.
Reality is Sunshine on Leith is arguably Britain's finest musical film since Oliver!
Sunshine on Leith shows the likes of Pitch Perfect and Mamma Mia1 just how to properly do a jukebox musical.
Sunshine on Leith is (to pardon the pun) 500 miles above the other musicals on this list.
It has arguably the catchiest songs in a musical film ever. I mean Mamma Mia, Money Money Money, SOS, The Winner Takes it All, Does your Mother Know, Take a Chance on Me and Dancing Queen. All kareoke classics.
The comedy in Mamma Mia! Comes from the fact that Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard can't sing.
