What are your favourite family movies?

Asked by ucme (46559points) August 3rd, 2010

Yeah they just published the results of a survey done by the Radio Times, a British publication.The winner was E.T on a vote of people’s all time fave family movies. So yeah, traditional safe family rated rather than movies specifically about the family. Just thought i’d clear that up to avoid any possible misunderstanding.What are your favourites is what i’m after?

Oh, forgot Finding Nemo! I love that movie. Almost every Pixar movie I’ve seen is great, except Cars. Wasn’t keen on that one.

We don’t watch movies as a family, but some of my favorites are the family vacation we have taken at various family celebrations.

My sister got all the 8 mm movies my Dad took when we were at home, so I don’t get to see them anymore.

Home Alone! God I love that movie. I know every line :D

ucme's avatar

@le_inferno Oooh now there’s a challenge. Okay smarty pants, what does the gangster guy say in the video that scares off the pizza boy? Word for word, i’m taking notes ;¬}

le_inferno's avatar

Lol! Easy…
“Who’s there?”
It’s Little Nero’s pizza, I have your pizza, sir.
“Just leave it on the doorstep and get the hell outta here.”
(in irritated tone) You have to pay for your pizza, sir.
(Kevin slips 12 dollars out the cat door) “Keep the change, ya filthy animal.”
(mutters) Cheapskate.
“Hey. I’m gonna give you, to the count of ten, to get your ugly, yeller, no good keester off my property. ‘Fore I pump your guts full’a lead!......One…. two….. TEN!”
Panics, scampers away as quickly as possible, speeds away in delivery car, knocks over statue
Kevin opens the door, grabs the box, sniffs it: “A whole cheese pizza, just for me”

@BoBo1946 I liked Its a Wonderful, but b&w can be slightly disappointing or frustrating and it Was a little drawn out . But I loved the snow and looking at all the old cars and decorating.
