I have two girls, ages 9 & 6. We recently saw "Enchanted" for the second time. I love quality, fun, and SURPRISE! This scene carries all of those for me:
Since, I go to movies that are targeted for kids about their age, I have become a connoisseur of this genre. Often, these movies will take really lame scripts and use visual effects to try to make a movie. UGH!!! "The Wild" was this for me, borrowing the characters from Madagascar and the plot of Toy Story 2.
Overall, I feel like in the past 15 years, Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks and others have done a great job improving the quality of these films not only for kids but also for adults. This dual strategy (adult references that are over the kids heads) keeps me engaged and brings me back. Here are my top five kid's movies:
1. The Incredibles
2. The Emperor's New Groove
4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Johnny Depp)
5. Shrek 2
If you had to pick 5, which would they be?
