1. The Goonies

This coming-of-age ’80s classic has got it all: hidden treasure, everlasting friendship (who doesn’t love Sloth, the chocolate eater?), edge-of-your-seat thrills... The bad guys (the thieving Fratellis) are a little scary, so we recommend saving this one for kiddies ten years and up. It’s hands down on of the best family films to watch at home.

2. The Nightmare Before Christmas

Pumpkin King Jack Skellington (champion of all-things spooky) is faced with a scarier dilemma than he's ever imagined: he's had enough of Halloween. Gasp! When he's decided that spiders, screams and shouts are no longer to his liking, he stumbles upon a new holiday: Christmas.

Confused but totally in love with the yuletide celebration, Jack decides to take a crack at Saint Nick's Christmas duties, but his good intentions turn out terribly. As Saint-Exupéry, the author of The Little Prince, said: what is essential is invisible to the eye.

3. Toy Story Saga

Has there ever been a film more epic than Toy Story? Put this film on if you want to deliver positive role models and messages about friendship and imagination when you're also trying to accommodate a toddler. When you finish the first one, be sure to watch the other three.

The first Pixar’s film is about toys that come alive whenever their owner Andy leaves the room. He's always with his right-hand-man Woody, but when he receives an astronaut action figure, Buzz Lightyear, it takes some time for the two toys to share the spotlight. Will they be able to coexist?

4. Star Wars Films

All of the Star Wars films are among the best family films to watch at home. Indeed, watching this tale of outer-space adventure with the little munchkins is a rewarding experience.

Let them be captivated by the opening symphonic blast, the adventures of the Jedi against the dark of the Sith with their amazing lightsabers, and the many characters that appear on the films. With 9 films and many series you’ll need plenty of time to discover a galaxy far, far away...

5. Jumanji

A brother-sister duo discover an old magical board game nestled in the attic while exploring their new home: Jumanji. As this game is anything but ordinary, they release a world full of excitement and start an adventure with wild creatures, an insane hunter and other crazy things…

They will meet Alan, a boy who’s been trapped inside the game until the youngsters picked it up many years later, but the dangers can only be stopped by finishing the game. A great film for the whole family!

As you can see, there are lots of interesting choices for adults and children alike, so spending a few hours while enjoying one of the best family films to watch at home is an experience that everybody always like.
