Last week, we shared a great list of must-see movies for kids. This week, we came across this list of family friendly funny movies from Reader’s Digest. We all can use a laugh every now and then, and it is nice to be able to do so with the kids in the same room. Don’t have children at home? No worries! These movies are just as good to watch without kids!
Toy Story 3
The first two are great, but a more nuanced story—with a surprisingly dramatic climax!—makes this funny adventure the ideal choice for the whole family. (Best for ages 6 and up.)
The LEGO Movie
Colorful characters, including many familiar faces like Batman and Wonder Woman, will have kids howling. You’ll love the self-aware and riotous sense of humor. (Best for ages 6 and up.)
Rats in the kitchen?! As ever with the Disney partner, Pixar infuses a manic romp with a heartwarming, and conversation-starting, message. (Best for ages 5 and up.)
Everyone’s favorite talking frog and his large cast of friends get an update for the 21st century. Fun celebrity cameos and catchy musical numbers round out the package while retaining that classic Muppet feel. (Best for ages 5 and up.)
Perhaps a little dated where its pop references are concerned, Shrek still triumphs as a gross-out comedy that will bring the house down. (Best for ages 6 and up.)
The Princess Bride
Actors like Billy Crystal and Mandy Patinkin don’t just chew the scenery—they swallow it whole—in this charming and side-splitting fantasy comedy. (Best for ages 8 and up.)
