It's funny, my kids just asked to watch Home Alone this weekend, try that pick too! Here are some others that are fun though:

1: E.T.
2: Enchanted
3: Princess Diaries
4: Multiplicity
5: The old Herbie movies
6: Parent Trap
7: Freaky Friday

Those are all super family friendly, if I think of more I'll chime back in:)

Matilda!!! It's sooooo cute. It's about a little girl in a really weird family. Danny Devito is hilarious! Don't know if it's just a girl movie though. I have 2 girls. But we all enjoyed it. Good wholesome movie :)

How old are your kids?

Depending on how old your kids are, the selections will really vary.
It could be "The Fockers" or Singin' In The Rain, or Mary Poppins, or Nim's Island, of Totoro, or Rio Angry Birds.... or Avatar etc.

Again, depending on the ages of your children.

Any of the Pixar movies like the Toy Story trilogy, Cars, Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. Tangled is pretty cute and my kids love Ponyo (a Japanese version of Little Mermaid). My 2 year old daughter and I caught the last half of Secretariat awhile back and it was a great story about a race horse. My husband and I watched The Green Hornet the other night and it was pretty funny, but not appropriate for kids. Hope this helps!

We watched Annie last week-I was kinda shocked at all the inappropriateness of it though.

Great Muppet Caper

We're going to watch Studio Ghibli's Tales of Earthsea this week.

We just watched The Indian in the Cupboard, and it was very good- held the attention of our kids and the adults, too.

Marmaduke I will admit that I kind of like (best of all the dog-talking movies at least. Chihuahua movies - bleh!)
