Nanny McPhee - perfect but most of them have seen it
High School Musical - OK, but most of them have seen it

Trying to avoid animated disney & Bratz.

More suggestions please.

Sound of music. I rented it this week for my 2 dds and they loved it!! ages 6 and 5.

Another vote for Matilda! My 7 and 5 year old watched it the other day and were mesmerised.

"Fly away home" is a fab tear jerker (in a good way) with a happy ending,if they love animals they will love it,it has a great story and a wonderful lead (that little girl from "the piano").that is the best I can think of for that age group other than musicals-my fair lady etc.Now I want to go and watch "fly away home" with a box of chocs,its really fab!

Princess Diaries 1 and 2 are both excellent films.

Another film that DD who is 7 likes is "A bridge to Terabithia" (please excuse spelling)

oo another vote for princess bride, my favourite film, cant wait until my dd is old enough so can watch it with her..

Aero Sat 02-Feb-08 23:09:57

Labyrinth also very good, and hairspray. Dd is 7 and enjoyed both of these.

SlightlyMadShrek Sat 02-Feb-08 23:11:18

I had forgotten about Labyrinth. It is quite long though isn't it?

SlightlyMadShrek Sat 02-Feb-08 23:12:25

Never heard of hairspray?!?!?

cluelessnchaos Sat 02-Feb-08 23:16:19

ooh I second fly away home

seeker Sat 02-Feb-08 23:16:20

Swallows and Amazons. The Railway Children.

mynaughtylittlesister Sat 02-Feb-08 23:19:36

The Bridge To Terabithia is quite a weepy, its quite sad but a lovely film! Would thoroughly recommend it!

SlightlyMadShrek Sat 02-Feb-08 23:21:22

Right Bridge to out.

It MUST NOT be weepy.

At least 3 of the children are so sensitive and cry at a bloody happy ending...

mynaughtylittlesister Sat 02-Feb-08 23:24:40

Why not ask girls what are their favourite film, tell them you will go on the most popular!

mynaughtylittlesister Sat 02-Feb-08 23:25:37

Terabithia is a sad ending as someone dies! So it is not a happy ending at all!

mynaughtylittlesister Sat 02-Feb-08 23:26:47

A simple wish (actress the same as Matilda1"
