Movie Night Suggestions!

My family LOVES to have a family movie night every week during the school year. In the summer we enjoy having them almost every night!  My older son is getting to the age of being interested in “teen” movies so we try to mix it up with both animated for my younger son & more mature movies for our older son.  Since we are doing movie night so frequently I was starting to run out of ideas.  I solicited my readers on Facebook and this is the list that they helped me compile.  I thought I would share it with you in case you, too, were looking for some great ideas!
Be cautioned, not all of these movies are PG, please check them on for their ratings.  Each of us feel differently about what we show our children and YOU have the final say on what you show your own kids.  Not all of these will be suitable for every child.
