After weeks of organizing and rescheduling, you've finally rallied the troops for family night. You've enjoyed a special meal together, played a few games, and caught up, so now it's time to cuddle up with a movie, which is when the bickering usually sets in. Johnny wants to watch an animated movie, Jill wants to see an action flick, you're in the mood for a coming-of-age tear-jerker, and the dog is insisting on an intellectual documentary. We all know how this thing goes, especially when you're streaming on Netflix and the sorting features that prioritize content based on past preferences make your differences glaringly obvious.
Well, we're here to deliver some conflict prevention with a watchlist of family-friendly movies on Netflix that will help you skip the extensive movie selection process. It's easy to get carried away looking through all of the options and before you know it, it's little Jill's bedtime. Below, you can read through the quick descriptions of the best family-friendly movies on Netflix, their ratings and age recommendations, and then choose a movie you'll all want to watch.
Now all you have left to decide is whether you'll be making classic or kettle popcorn—but then again, why choose when you can have both? We've organized it in order of PG-13 movies to PG and ending with G so you can jump to the ones most suitable for your family and kids. We promise kids won't have to block their ears and cover their eyes during any raunchy scenes.
