5 Best Friday Night Movies For Families the Won't Drive Parents Crazy

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
Starring Dustin Hoffman

This is a no brainer in my house. Adults and kids alike love the whimsy and fun. It was also a huge help in explaining death in a way my little could not only understand but be comforted by.

A Little Princess
Starring Eleanor Bron, Liam Cunningham, Liesel Matthews, Rusty Schwimmer, Arthur Malet

Yes, it has its' sappy moments but the sheer beauty will make up for it.

Moana (2016) (With Bonus Content)
Starring Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Jemaine Clement

I will admit I was not nearly as excited as my little about watching this. Moana ended up being an across the board favorite. I even caught the teenager looking over his phone to watch a few times. My mother who has no tolerance for cheesy even loved this movie!

Starring David Bowie, Brian Henson, Jennifer Connelly, Ron Mueck, Toby Froud

Welcome to the I am a child of the 80's section. Long live Mr. Bowie. We miss you. This movie still holds up well and is visually stunning!

The Princess Bride
Starring Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Wallace Shawn

Is there a more perfect movie? Ok, a few things bother me...Really Buttercup you can't help your true love who is being mauled by what looks like a normal size rat from NY sewer system? You're just going to stand there? Aside from my feminist hackles rising this is a charming and hilarious movie.
