It’s the Christmas season, and the entire family has decided to have a movie night by popping some popcorn in the microwave. Sure, there are a lot of possibilities, but when children are involved, the choices can get a little problematic.
Is it appropriate for my child’s age? Will the kids enjoy it? Will I be able to? Is it possible that the music may get stuck in your head? (Because a song like “You’re Welcome” from Moana has a good probability of staying in your head for a long time.) There’s a lot to think about—and all of the criteria have already given us a headache.
Finding the ideal film for both adults and children can be a difficult task. But what happens when you finally agree on something and it’s good? You’ll be glad you got together and spent some quality time together.
True, a solid narrative with an occasional head-banging son will ensure that the entire family is happy.
