Nine heart-warming movies for a family night in

2 years ago

Family movies are in a special genre that brings the whole family together for a warm and relaxing evening.

Bright Side presents 10 family movies that will please both younger and older generations.

Little Miss Sunshine

Olive is a cute little girl whose dream is to win the pageant, ’’Little Miss Sunshine.’’ Her family wants her dream to come true, but they are so burdened with their own quirks and problems that they can hardly find time for her. We promise that you will be rolling in the aisles at the end of this film!

Serial (Bad) Weddings

Qu’est-ce qu’on a fait au Bon Dieu?

Nowadays it’s very hard to find a true comedy. This is one of them. A French Catholic family sees their lives turn upside-down when their three daughters get married to men of different religions and backgrounds — one is Chinese, one is Muslim, and the other is Jewish. The whole family is getting prepared for the wedding of the fourth daughter... but who is the groom? It’s an incredibly tolerant and extremely funny film that won’t leave you indifferent.

We Bought a Zoo

If you think watching this movie will be a waste of time, I’m afraid you are mistaken! By watching this movie, you will realize that you can overcome any difficulties and make the right decisions. Just don’t give up on your dreams and love everyone around you — people, animals and certainly yourself!

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

It’s a pure and simple film with great humor and excellent stage direction. Three hours pass like three minutes with this movie that is full of laughter and excitement. It’s simply unbelievable that the movie was shot 45 years ago. The film passed the test of time and hasn’t been affected by the economic crisis or politics.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The heart of a little man can also dream big! Even the modest and inconspicuous employee sometimes wants to do crazy, but heroic deeds, believing in his own strength and courage. Why should only super men be able to save the world?

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

From the humanistic point of view, the film is one of the greatest achievements of 20th century cinematography. No sense in explaining the movie; we think you’re going to like it!


This is a family movie by Martin Scorsese that is something really magical. It’s a nice, sincere and beautiful fairy tale you probably haven’t enjoyed for a long time.

A Christmas Carol

It’s the animated retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, which is quite impressive, even for adults. Despite the intimidating atmosphere of the film, it’s still a magical story that urges you to enjoy life and spread your precious love everywhere.

Life of Pi

This is a must-see film. After a shipwreck, Pi Patel finds himself in a lifeboat with a tiger. It’s a movie about faith, hope, and the fight to survive. Put a beautiful smile on your face and hold your own!
