Every good parent knows that an excellent way to spend two hours every day with your children is to sit down on the couch with them and not speak to or look at each other while a TV rots their brains. Okay, not really — but there’s nothing wrong with watching the occasional movie with the kiddos. Thing is, thanks to the PC police, you can’t subject them to Scarface … at least, not till they’re at least 9 years old. So you need to find movies meant for kids.
But let’s be honest: Kids are goofy simpletons — which is why most movies made for them are terrible. But not all of them are. In fact, we came up with 11 that you’ll downright enjoy next time you need to find a movie to watch with a youngster. (We left Pixar films, the Shreks, and others off the list because they’re meant for adults as much if not more than they’re meant for kids; we also focused (mainly) on lesser-known movies.)
