10 great films for seven-year-olds
Seven-year-olds are a discerning bunch, and can cope with slightly more complex plots and characters. Here are the films that Mumsnetters reckon will keep them (and you!) gripped
"The Jungle Book is a fab film - it's old enough to be a classic, and therefore educational!"
"Shrek has my vote - I have seen it with the kids countless times, and still keep intending to watch it one evening in peace without interruptions, so I can appreciate all the jokes!"
"The Parent Trap with Dennis Quaid is great."
"My kids liked G-Force - it's a very silly film about some guinea pigs that are secret agents, but it has good special effects and is played straight, so it worked well."
"The Secret Garden. It's a beautiful adaptation of the book."
"I love Tangled! I have a newfound respect for frying pans."
"My son loved Night at the Museum - he sat riveted all the way through. Definitely recommend it.
"Horton Hears a Who. My children have seen it a million, zillion times. We've had to replace the DVD twice."
"Madagascar was a hit - it's one of the first films I can remember my daughter watching where she laughed out loud."
