  1. "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" The de facto family adventure movie for guys, this was Harrison Ford's first time donning the iconic fedora as the only man to ever make archeology truly awesome. You can't deny your love for Indiana Jones, and the violence is toned down just enough to make it good for the little ones. Introduce a new generation to Indy with this awesome adventure movie.

  2. "The Mask Of Zorro" While this rebirth of the franchise doesn't hold a candle to the original film series, the appearances of Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Anthony Hopkins makes it palatable to younger audiences. This tale of a masked hero who takes on government corruption is one of the better family adventure movies for guys because it's got plenty of action with just enough humor for everyone to enjoy.

  3. "The Princess Bride" Though more of a farce than anything else, this is an adventure movie in its own right. The humor is lovable and innocent enough for younger audiences, though guys will love how utterly charming Andre The Giant is. Not only one of the best family adventure movies for guys, this is simply one of the best movies of all time, period.

  4. "The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King" We had to choose the third film in the trilogy because it takes the action from the first and ditches the crappy romance of the second to give one of the more satisfying finales in film history, as long as you don't count the four endings after that one. Don't wait for the credits to roll on this film, but be sure to appreciate it for its spectacle and satisfying bits, such as hurling Gollum into a pit of lava. If you love swordplay, then this is one of the best family adventure movies for guys for you.
