Has it really been 20 years since Disney brought audiences into the circle of life? Or 30 years since Daniel-san crane-kicked the Cobra Kai?

Movies celebrating anniversaries in 2014 range from contemporary favorites to classics, taking audiences everywhere from Preston, Idaho, to the Land of Oz.

Here, we recognize movies that have stood the test of time (some longer than others). All are rated PG or G, though many were released before the advent of the PG-13 rating and would have certainly earned that designation.

"Young Frankenstein" does not belong on this list. In this day and age it should be rated PG-13. It is not raunchy like many of today's movies are. It has some wit behind it and also is one of the funniest movies ever made. But it is not what I would call a traditional family film. Parents should screen it before deciding if their teen agers should watch it.


Rockyard; I agree, PG-13 but like you said, one of the funniest movies ever made.

Wow, I just got really old...Did not realize it had been that long for these movies.
I really enjoyed the list, though!
