Keeping Family Movie Night “Family-Friendly”

the parent trap

We do family movie night here. Each week we take a turn and pick the movie we are going to watch as a family. With two young ones yes we tend to watch a lot of cartoons and as a Disney fan I tend to pick those too. We’re really careful about what we watch as we are really not ones for foul language in movies. I like movies where I can just sit back and enjoy it with my family without having to worry about when the next foul word is going to come up and if the kids will hear it or it will go right past them (well I could only really hope that second part happens).

I’ve talked to my husband about all the great movies I watched as a kid with my family. Some, ok maybe most of them he’d never heard of. I usually give in and let the kids pick when it’s my turn. But finally I gave in to my husband’s prodding and thought about all those movies I kept telling him about. I searched on Amazon Instant Video for the movies I used to watch and sure enough they were there. Can’t get them on Netflix, believe me I looked. But is it worth the $3 for a movie at home with the kids? Of course it is!

the parent trap

I picked out a movie I hadn’t seen since I was little but had no trouble remembering every scene. Yes, it ended up being a Disney flick, with me would you expect any less? We watched the original version of The Parent Trap with Hayley Mills, Brian Keith and Maureen O’Hara. Oh how it took me back to when I was little. I laughed at the same scenes as when I was young. I remember the words to the song in the movie. I really, thoroughly enjoyed myself.

And you know what? So did my kids and so did my husband. All this time I thought the movies I enjoyed would bore them, it didn’t. Now I’m not saying they will love every movie I did as a kid but now I’m really looking forward to my turn coming around again. Thinking about all the great movies I used to watch.

My mom was big on musicals when I was growing up, my hubby not so much so I may have to hold off on those for a just a bit but I can think of plenty of Disney flicks of years gone by that my kiddos haven’t seen yet. Next up? I’m thinking Swiss Family Robinson. That was good one.

Family flicks like: Father Goose, The African Queen, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, How to Marry a Millionaire, Oklahoma, Old Yeller…

What about you? What movies did you watch as a child that you would share with your kids? I’d love to have a few more in my back pocket. 😉 And I know I’ll forget about a ton of them.
