Movies We Enjoyed With Our 10- and 13-year Old Boys

A Listmania! list by Sue D. Nym (Watertown, MA)
The list author says: "I am making this list to keep track of the movies we watched with my boyfriend's 10- and 13-year-old sons. I think it's challenging to come up with appropriate movies that hold interest for all of us!"
Groundhog Day
1.  Groundhog Day DVD ~ Bill Murray
The list author says:
  "We all enjoyed this movie and laughed a lot.  I had forgotten what a nice romantic movie it was, and the kids thought it was very funny."
$7.05   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,386 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Young Frankenstein
2.  Young Frankenstein DVD ~ Gene Wilder
The list author says:
  "This was the most-enjoyed of any of the movies I have rented.  The kids thought it was hilarious, after they got past the first 5 minutes, learning that the movie was in black and white and seeing 5 minutes of static credits.  After that, it was fine.  There is some sexual innuendo in the movie ("What knockers!" is one line), but it stayed within our comfort zone."
$5.00   Used & New from: $0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,018 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Microcosmos
3.  Microcosmos DVD ~ Kristin Scott Thomas
The list author says:
  "This is an incredible nature documentary of insects and other small animals.  The photography is so stunning that it held the kids' interest through the whole thing.  There are 2 sex scenes (ladybugs and snails), so if you don't want your kids to see that, be warned."
Used & New from: $7.08

The Princess Bride (Special Edition)
4.  The Princess Bride (Special Edition) DVD ~ Cary Elwes
The list author says:
  "This is a great movie! Unfortunately it didn't hold the 13-year-old's interest, and he left to play on the computer after a half an hour.  But the 10-year-old (and the adults) really liked it."
$11.89   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3,449 customer reviews) | 17 customer discussions

Iron Man (Single-Disc Edition)
5.  Iron Man (Single-Disc Edition) DVD ~ Robert Downey Jr.
The list author says:
  "An action movie that all of us could really enjoy.  It's smart and funny enough to hold my interest, but has enough action and special effects for the kids to love it too."
$9.95   Used & New from: $0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2,079 customer reviews) | 57 customer discussions
