Saturday, February 19 by Ashley Welch

If you have kids you're always looking for a new family movie that both entertains the kids, and won't bore the adults to tears. Luckily the past few years have produced increasingly entertaining family movies that the entire family can truly enjoy.

  1. "Toy Story 3" is the final installment of the "Toy Story" franchise. Woody and the others are accidently donated to a daycare when Andy goes to college. The entire Toy Story series is a must for families.
  2. "Toy Story" is the original, and very entertaining. We are introduced to Woody, who experiences pangs of jealousy when a new space toy takes over as the favorite toy.
  3. "Wall-E" is a great family movie that teaches the importance of being active and taking care of the environment. It's cute, intelligent, and has some pretty funny moments.
  4. "Finding Nemo" is a family movie about a family of fish. It is very dramatic, and at the same time has plenty of lighthearted moments and quote worthy lines. When Nemo is caught by fishermen his father Marlin must go to Sydney to save him.
  5. "Spirited Away" is a great family anime. It is very much a fantasy, telling the story of a girl who wanders into a world filled with magical and mythical creatures.
  6. "Monsters Inc." is an entertaining look at what the world of monsters may be like. When a toddler girl follows two monsters back through the closet it puts a new spin on their lives and jobs.
  7. "The Princess Bride" is a cult classic, and amazing family movie. It has a little bit of everything, drama, romance, action, humor, the list goes on and on.
  8. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a family movie geared towards slightly older children. When Jack tires of Halloween, he discovers Christmas and decides to try it for himself.
  9. "Tangled" is a new take on the fairy tale Rapunzel. Long haired Rapunzel has lived in a tower her entire life. When a bandit discovers her and she falls in love she must leave the tower to find him.
  10. "Shrek" is a hilarious family movie. Shrek takes all of the traditional fairy tales and laughs at them. Humperdink wants to marry a Princess, but he doesn't want to take the risk involved with rescuing one himself. When he chooses Fiona and sends Shrek to retrieve her he bites off more than he can chew.
