Hi :) I am planning a Year 6 sleepover for around 30 children. They will be 10 and 11 and a mix of boys and girls. I don't want Harry Potter as they don't all like that same as Star Wars. Also would prefer a film rather than Disney cartoon. Cant be higher than a PG certificate and preferably relatively old so they may not have seen it!
I am really stuck...what would you suggest please??

The Goonies? Go old school Grin

Mine loves Goonies, Labyrinth, Earth to Echo, Are we there yet, Chipmunk movies.

I really want to go old school!! Know lots of them watched labyrinth last year when David Bowie died as our cinema had a charity screening and a group went to that! Love the idea of goonies, how about cheaper by the dozen or mighty ducks? They all love home alone is there a non festive film similar to that maybe?
Thanks for suggestions

Ours (10 & 12) loved Who Framed Roger Rabbit!

TheEdgeofSeventeen · 21/02/2017 15:30

No Patricia !!! Roger Rabbit still gives me nightmares - freaks me out. Cheaper by the dozen is good or freaky Friday x

Home alone
Ghostbusters the original
Back to the future
Jurassic Park
Lemony snicket
Percy Jackson

Myfanwyprice · 27/02/2017 12:35

Percy Jackson and the lightning thief or zathura - which is a sort of sequel to jumanji.

Or baby's day out - it's a bit home aloneish with lots of slapstick humour.

ChoudeBruxelles · 27/02/2017 12:39

Cheaper by the dozen
Father of the bride
Parental guidance

ArseyTussle · 27/02/2017 12:54

DD is younger but loves all things Studio Ghibli, eg My Neighbour Totoro, Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service.

Indiana Jones?

JonesyAndTheSalad · 27/02/2017 12:56

That Miss Perigrine thing has my friend's ten year old having nightmares. She was so disturbed. In a class of thirty, there'll be more than one sensitive child. I would go for pure comedy.

Clankboing · 27/02/2017 13:02

I'll tell you what my kids love - they are aged 9 to 16 mix of boys, girls. Mr Bean!! Not the film - the old TV programmes. I got a box set recently and they watch it at meal times cringing laughing all at once. Completely non offensive.

sunbird17 · 27/02/2017 13:02

Matilda, The Parent Trap, Father of the Bride, A Fairy Tale (the one where the girls photographed fairies in their garden), The Borrowers, 101 Dalmatians (film not cartoon), A Little Princess, The Secret Garden.

JonesyAndTheSalad · 27/02/2017 13:07

I'm pretty sure that a lot of kids that age won't like Mr Bean.

Snurf · 27/02/2017 13:07

Maybe a bit too old school.....

Tron (original)
Flight of the Navigator
Bill and Ted
Back to the future

JonesyAndTheSalad · 27/02/2017 13:19

Back to the Future has a near rape in it!

ArseyTussle · 27/02/2017 13:22

Yes, that bit in Back To The Future is awful!

Bill and Ted though, that's fab.

2014newme · 27/02/2017 13:23

Back to the future is a PG
Are you sure it features a near rape (whatever that is!)

Johnny English?
