30 Iconic '90s Family Movies To Rewatch With Your Kids

Brrrrr! This chilly weather has me craving couch-time this weekend. Recently my daughter and I started working our way through the iconic '90s family movies and it's giving all the nostalgic feelings + has been extra fun seeing her enjoy them just as much as I did.

It's also been interesting watching them now as a grown up and recognising the more adult jokes and references throughout that went totally over my head as child, or realising just how random a storyline really is (James and the Giant Peach, anyone?). It can be quite shocking and funny at times.

Our favourite movie so far has been 'Hook' with the legendary "Rufioooooo" entrance. Gosh Robin Williams, Macaulay Culkin and the Olsen Twins were in just about everything back then weren't they...

Anywho, if you'd like to take a walk down memory lane too I've pulled together a list of films you can whip out during your next family movie night below.

If you are unsure, ask a trusted friend or family member for their thoughts first or read what other parents are saying on sites such as Common Sense MediaCommon Sense Media is an organisation that reviews and provides ratings for media and technology on their suitability for children.
