I live with three boys (if I include my DH). Movies in our house tend towards the superhero end of things usually. However they have agreed today I get to choose!! Please can you recommend something that I’ll love but also that’s suitable for a 4 and 7 year old. I thought My fair Lady or the new Mary Poppins but neither are available to buy or rent on Prime. Please suggest some good movies!

I'm currently snuggled up with 5 and 7 year old DS's watching The Sound of Music...

How about:

Hmm, I would probability go for something like strictly ballroom, hairspray, moulin rouge or priscilla queen of the desert.

I do love a musical...

GarthFunkel Sun 31-Mar-19 14:05:00

I'm watching the Princess Bride.

GottenGottenGotten Sun 31-Mar-19 14:05:28

Hmm just clocked the age. Maybe not priscilla or moulin rouge..

Paddington is fab.

Another vote for Moana!

Trolls?? That film always makes me smile and my feet tap. It's got a cracking soundtrack.

Either of the Paddington films, the are just lovely (the 2nd one made me cry at the end).

Coffeekisses Sun 31-Mar-19 16:38:49

Thanks for all the ideas! How did you get on with the sound of music callisto? That would be my favourite so far. I love Paddington but we’ve watched it a lot of times 😂 I’d really like something from my childhood but so many of them seem to lose their magic on a second watch...

Coffeekisses Sun 31-Mar-19 16:39:26

Janeeyre I love Trolls but we watched it so much one summer that they both refuse outright to watch it now 😭

Cheerybigbottom Sun 31-Mar-19 16:56:48

We're watching the Greatest Showman tonight smile Ds (7) suggested it and DH said "fair enough". Superhero free zone today.

My DDs (4&7) love The Sound of Music!

zucchinieggplant Sun 31-Mar-19 17:09:37

I loved the more recent Peter Rabbit film; I thought it was endearing without being wet, and definitely made me laugh without being too silly.

Flicketyflack Sun 31-Mar-19 17:12:27

Currently watching Tomb Raider (Alicia Vikander version). wink

AdultHuman Sun 31-Mar-19 17:14:55

The sound of music or Moana.

Baconislife Sun 31-Mar-19 18:37:02

Mrs Doubtfire
Bedknobs and Broomsticks

I just bawled my eyes out at the last 30mins of Steel Magnolias... not really kid material though.
Homeward bound?

It was great coffee - DS2 was getting a bit fidgety by the end, but he wanted to know what happened so he stuck with it. We love a musical in the Callisto house!
