  1. Great choices for a family movie night! My kids and I have watched almost all of these. Some they loved, like The Princess Bride but others they hated. (No love for The Goonies from this bunch 🙂 ) I always think their reactions to older movies, especially ones from the 80s are so funny. I always tell them, “you had to be there”.
