Top Ten Best Family Movies
The Contenders: Page 2
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.
All 3 home alone movies were equally hilarious with great acting and clever plots. A classic and a masterpiece.
With funny supporting characters and one big-ass villain what's not to like?
Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are quite a pairing in this movie.
Frank the Pug, Edgar the Bug, Agent J and the Worm Guys make me laugh.V 1 Comment
You want talking animals in family movies? Who needs dogs eating spaghetti or kids raised by wolves when you can have armoured polar bears and "daemons".
Now we're talking. Phillip Pullman knew how to write Y/A fantasy fiction.
Move over Baloo, Iorek Byrnisson is the bear you'd really want as a companion. He's armoured, he beats up other polar bears and is voiced by Ian "Gandalf" MacKellenV 1 Comment

Iron Man doesn't need animation or songs to be entertaining. All it needs is witty one liners and awe inspiring action scenes. Iron Man has plenty.
True, but The Lion King is always entertaining anyway. I just meant there's lots of great reasons to like Disney's classic animated movies. And defiantly The Lion King had great lines (including one of my favorites, "They call me, MISTER PIG! ") and awesome action scenes. It's just brilliant and beautiful. You can like Iron Man better, that's fine, but please don't shun The Lion King. Don't shun Bambi either. Everybody in my favorite loves Thumper's line "If you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothing' at all". Just like The Lion King Bambi is amazing. Don't think just because it's animated means it's only for kids! These two films and others like them appeal to all ages, even adults. Please respect that.
Sorry but why is some stupid lion and stupid deer ahead of Iron Man? Iron Man appeals to a wider audience than the likes of Bambi.
How can you insult EITHER of those movies like that? Bambi and The Lion King are both masterpieces. How can you not see that? They're both brilliant, heartfelt films with excellent animation, songs, score, and characters. If you can't see that, something's wrong with you. Really. You're wasting my time. (quote by Marlin from Finding Nemo, another excellent animated movie).
The movie that kicked off what we now know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now we're talking. This is where the entire MCU all started. This changed family viewing in a cinema in a big way. Robert Downey Jr's big comeback cemented him as the Marvel legend he is today.V 5 Comments
Really? A phony nanny and a retard father of an equally retarded family are considered more broad appealing than Guardians of the Galaxy?
Nothing but a wannabe of the West End's Oliver! P. L Travers hated what Disney did to her creation.
There are definitely some Oliver! -esque moments. I kept expecting Shani Wallis to show up with a bit of Oom-Pah-Pah.
Now THIS is what I call a family film This movie really does "harness the power of the Gods".
Doesn't really look family friendly to me.
The Simpsons Movie is definitely a family film. Whoever said it wasn't must have been on the gin or the beer.
Springfield's funniest yellow skinned family in their first big screen outing.
The Simpsons is for teens and adults you idiots. - RalphBob
Definitely a family film. Every kid on the planet will have seen a few episodes of the T.V. series, or at least enough to justify giving the movie a chance.V 2 Comments
I can't say I have ever heard of Music Man. Is he some kind of kid's superhero?
What the Hell is Music Man? I don't remember this character at all. What is his super power? My guess is that he's simmilar to Sour Note from the new SpongeBob movie.
What the F is Music Man? Is it meant to be a retarded version of Iron Man or something?V 1 Comment
What in the blue Hell is this girly garbage doing ahead of Jingle All The Way?!
This movie is far better than that piece of crap. And the same goes for every other excellent animated movie on this list (that includes the underrated movies like The Rescuers and Oliver & Company).
A bit too girly for my liking. The Simpsons Movie is more broad appealing.
How is The Simpsons Movie count as a family film? Also, who says this isn't good just because it's for girls? I mean what about The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen, or The Princess and the Frog among others? They're all really good!
