Looking for recommendations for a funny family movie that does the impossible and pleases everyone!

Kids have liked The Princess Bride, ET, the Goonies, Daddy's Home 1+2 (2 a favourite!), Snow Day, Mean Girls, Alexander and the Terrible, No Good, Horrible Bad Day and Yes Day.

Keen to hear any more. Thanks!

Brilliant Disney film called Holes. It's got a load of big stars in it (sigourney weaver, a young Shia labeouf). Has entertained my family for years. Recommend it all the time ☺️
