I posted a video once on Instagram (Happy Mum Happy Child) tonight about how Wreck It Ralph was on in the background, and that I didn’t care because I LOVE Wreck It Ralph; and it got me thinking: What other kids movies do I like, as an adult?
Of course there are the classics: Goonies, Labyrinth, The Never Ending Story, The Princess Bride, Demolition Man …. ok maybe not that last one as a kids movie, but I loved it hahaha
I’m talking about in the last 10-15 years.
We watch a lot of our movies / TV shows on Netflix, so some of these are on there, but other’s we own on DVD because we love them so much. In some cases, I started out DISLIKING the movie, but over time learned to love it; although I still don’t love Toy Story 2 ….
Whether it’s the characters within the movie, or the adult humour, these movies I absolutely love watching, and can watch them over and over again …
Here is my list of 20 Kids Movies That Adults Love (in no particular order):
- The Lego Movie
- Despicable Me
- Wreck It Ralph
- Inside Out
- Toy Story
- Toy Story 3
- Rise of the Guardians
- Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs
- Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2
- How To Train Your Dragon
- Monsters vs Aliens
- Monsters, Inc
- Arthur Christmas
- Finding Nemo
I could watch these over and over … and I recently saw Pete’s Dragon at the movies and that’s one I could easily watch again. AND Finding Dory. Can’t wait for my kids to see both of these.
So hit me with your favourite kids movie – a recent one, not the old school ones!
