Thank you for this list. It is so helpful to have some guidance in choosing a movie that is appropriate for families. And, we periodically like to take our grandchildren to a move. We have noticed in the past that some of the movies that seem to be produced for children still have objectionable content. Just one word of caution: a 5 year old was traumatized by Tangled. She wasn't sitting next to her parents, or grandparents, and she didn't understand the evil nature of the "mother" -- so she was traumatized when she was killed. We loved the movie, but it required some explanation to younger children.

I have not seen any of the movies except, "Dispicable Me." I have an account with NETFLIX SO I will be ordering all the family movies that I can get ahold of. In regards to "Dispicable Me." I absolutly loved that movie. I'll be recommending more movies as time goes on.

So, let me get this straight. The top family movie of the year is some unknown Christian indoctrination film? With no explanation of how ATI ranks these films, I feel the need to call FOUL here.

I've seen this film advertised on GMC (a dear member of my family watches Dr. Quinn on that channel) didn't look that interesting though to me (considering the heck that Christians have given me for being gay)

How did "Secretariat" not make the top ten list. It should be #1. Great music, fun movie with superb acting. John Malkovich was a hoot as the horse trainer. Fore!!!

Why is Legend of the Guardians on this list? It should be listed as a horror movie. I agree with "Dash", how is Secretariat not here but "What if" is? I think this list needs some serious revisions.
