I know that you’ve sat around more in the past few weeks than you’ve ever sat around in your entire life. And you probably grabbed your share of binge-worthy series on Netflix. But how about an old-fashioned movie night tonight?

There’s no better boredom-buster than sitting around with your family watching a great, fun, breezy movie comedy. OK, so now you know you want to watch a movie. Now you’re going to sit around and think, “what was that movie so-and-so said was great?” Don’t wrack your brain ... I got you covered.

Dennis Malloy and I took some time during our show on New Jersey 101.5 asking people what they thought were the most uplifting and fun movies they could think of —ones that are family-friendly, kid friendly, and elderly-people friendly. The variety of movies was amazing. Some I knew. Some I’d never even heard of but listeners raved about.

People thought of a lot of classics that Dennis and I had both forgotten about. I compiled a list for you here – it’s so lengthy that I’ve included titles only. I figured for the details, you can Google. So here’s to the weekend and your family movie night! Enjoy these fun and funny flicks.
