Family Movie Nights Kick It Old School with Netflix #StreamTeam

9th October 2015


We have a family movie night every Friday, every single week, sometimes even Saturdays. Sometimes we’ll watch a new movie but most often we’re on Netflix, looking for something all four of us want to see. It has to be something  to amuse both kids, and keep even the adults entertained. At this point, we’ve seen every animated movie known to man, so lately the adults have been picking the movies, and we’re going old school.

The kids are now 11 (almost 12) and 9 and are old enough to see some of those great movies from the 80s and 90s,  that we all love. We’ve already seen a few, including:

  • Adventures in Babysitting
  • Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  • The Addams Family
  • Honey I Shrunk the Kids


The kids loved all four although I will say Ferris Beuller is getting the heaviest rotation at our house – as it should be. All four are fun and hilarious and great picks for a family movie night.

Here are a few of the latest old school favourites I’ve added to our must see family movie night list:

  • Rocky
  • Footloose
  • Can’t Buy Me Love
  • Mean Girls


And a big thanks to the lovely Netflix Canada people who sent us a great package to help us enjoy our movie night even more this weekend, now that Daddy is back from three weeks of travelling. Happy Movie Watching!!
