We try to have a movie night pretty often as a family.  The hard part is making sure it’s a movie my kids as well as my husband and I will enjoy. There are a lot of duds out there, but there are also a lot of great movies that may have slipped your mind. Here are 20 family movies you can stream—choose one for this weekend!

20 Family Movies You Can Stream on a Weekend

Annie

A perennial favorite—the story of an orphaned girl who is adopted by a millionare. You’ll be singing “The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow” for the next couple of weeks.

Mary Poppins

A perfect blend of “real people” and animation, there is something in this classic film for everyone. I realized a few years ago that my husband had never seen the whole movie, so we immediately planned a family movie night to watch it together.  The new Mary Poppins Returns in also great!

Bringing Up Baby

I love a good old movie and nothing makes it better than Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant. Bringing Up Baby will have everyone laughing so hard they are falling off the couch.  Warning, after watching it your kids will want you to buy it so they can watch again and again.

Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey

Kids will love the animals and their antics; grown-ups will experience all the feels, especially as the kids and pets are reunited at the end of the movie.  I always cry…

Song of the Sea

We stumbled across this one a few years ago and were blown away at the beauty of this movie. There is very little dialogue, but you don’t need any to watch a little boy who has recently lost his mother try to find his baby sister (don’t worry—it has a happy ending!).

Inside Out

This is one of those animated movies that I never mind watching because it connects with kids as well as adults. We see a little girl’s big move and life transition through the eyes of the various emotions who live in her brain.

There are lots of Muppet movies to pick from, but this one is my favorite! Both kids and adults will find it hilarious!

Although this movie is older 30 years old, it’s still a classic! Kids will love the adorable animals and you’ll get a blast from the past.

The Princess Bride

While littles may not love it, this classic is PG and one that my 9 and up girls all love! If you haven’t introduced the kids to it, think of it as a requirement of parenting right up there with potty training and learning to walk.
