Top Ten Best Family Movies

The Top Ten

1 Inside Out
2 Marvel's The Avengers

I love Marvel's The Avengers. Great movie. It has good dialogue, really awesome action sequences, a great premise, and a spectacular villain. I think that may be the first time I've ever said "spectacular" and "villain" consecutively, but it's true. It's PG-13, so when I first watched it, I was wondering just how "family" it was going to be, but it turned out to be really relatively clean and non-violent, but just enough violence to keep it interesting. I respect that quality in movies. All-in-all, I thought it was a great movie, really entertaining, and it is most definitely one-hundred worth seeing.

If Loki was real he'd say this to the other movies on this list.

All you other movies are beneath me! I am a god you dull creatures, and I shall not be bullied by puny talking animals.

Um what is Forrest doing ahead of Earth's Mightiest Heroes?

To quote Iron Man; "Let's do a headcount here, a demigod, a super soldier, a man with breathtaking anger management issues, a couple of master assassins and you big fella, you managed to piss off every single one of them".

This is the pinnacle of the MCU, a movie featuring Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and The Incredible Hulk. In today's world, this is the highmark for family entertainment.

3 E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial

Spielberg sure is a family man with his sentimentality.

I wouldn't call it a family movie. It has swearing and blood. I'd say tweens and up, though I adore this movie (I think Spielberg's only truely family movie is BFG).

4 Star Wars: A New Hope
5 Back to the Future
6 Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Extended Edition
7 The Lion King

Great characters. A classic, with some of the most powerful music ever composed.

As family musicals go it's not up there with Scrooge or Sunshine on Leith in terms of subtlety but then very few are.

8 The Muppet Movie

You can't be serious. This cheese is beating out Marvel's finest? Somebody ought to right that wrong.

10 Home Alone

All 3 home alone movies were equally hilarious with great acting and clever plots. A classic and a masterpiece.

The Newcomers

? Black Panther Black Panther
? Hop (2011)

The Contenders

11 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

A phenomenal movie, even if you haven't read the book. Great family viewing.

Nothing more than Oliver! Without the subtlety. Wonka can "Consider Itself" a poor wannabe

12 2 Fast 2 Furious
13 The Wizard of Oz

Of course this movies a masterpiece it totally derverses to be on this list.

14 Flight of the Navigator

Heard it's pretty good.

There’s cursing in it, so not a family movie.

15 Bedtime Stories
16 Forrest Gump

Who needs Forrest Gump when you can have The Avengers?

I wouldn't say it's a family movie. It has lots of violence and swearing. More swearing than violence. (the F word. Totally family friendly)

17 Babe

This is just a great movie that truly is a masterpiece!
I still remember watching this movie all the time as a kid, and I still love watching it
It's just a great feel good movie that everyone can enjoy (unless you're dead inside)
I love the message of you achieve anything even if you're different
And, Babe is just cutest pig ever and I just wanna hug him whenever I watch the movie
