Every Sunday night, we have a family movie night. These are our favorites. While we do watch animated movies, they aren't my favorite to watch. These are films the whole family will enjoy. Be sure to leave a comment if you have more suggestions.
The Man From Snowy River Boys AND girls love this classic horse movie. Suspenseful riding scenes in the outback.
The Princess Bride A classic. Fire swamp can be a bit scary, but you can fast forward if your sprouts are sensitive.
Kit Kittredge An American Girl Great soundtrack, lots of stars in this one--Julia Ormond, Joan Cusack. This is, by far, our favorite American Girl movie.
Nancy Drew Healthy, wholesome and fun. Great clothes and soundtrack, too.
The Best Christmas Pagent Ever Love the book, love the movie.
The Quiet Man John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara star in this Irish tale--great to watch on St. Patrick's Day.
Nanny McFee The colorful, magical set and costumes make this a feast for the eyes.
Nanny McFee Returns Flying pigs? Uhh, YES please! Super funny.
