Looking for Family Friendly Movies?

I'm often asked to recommend family-friendly movies. This is really not my area of expertise. I don't have kids of my own to consider when choosing a movie and my own childhood experiences are sort of complicated since it didn't seem to occur to my dad that maybe some movies aren't good for kids and my mom usually concentrated on getting us to read or go play outside. Since I'm not much help in this area, perhaps The Dove Foundation can be. Their website rates movies in specific categories like sex, language, violence, drugs and nudity. Titles that have received their Family Approved seal are clearly marked. They also note what ages a movie is appropriate for. For example, I noticed several approved titles that were said to be best for children 12 and older.

A great site to pick family friendly movies is called "kids-in-mind.com".  It details any questionable content so you can make a decision, not just based on a movie someone has recommended.

The Veggie Tales movies are good and also have a bible story or message behind it.  My nine year old as well as my five year old  both like these movies.
