Top Ten Family Movies More for Adults Than Kids

This list does not compile the best "kids" movies. Kids movies, by my definition, are simple-minded movies aimed entirely at children. They do not, nor were they ever meant to, appeal to anyone old enough to tie their own shoes. This list compiles the "family" movies (movies that feature something for everyone) that, while still appropriate for children, feature intelligent humour, complex characters, and intricate stories that could only be truly appreciated by adults.

The Top Ten

1 The Lego Movie

Seriously! Why is a lego movie number one!


2 Marvel's The Avengers

Just to clarify this is what's called a 4-quad blockbuster.
