Top 10 Tuesday
Usually I have a hard time getting my boys to watch older movies. Joey sort of tunes out and eventually walks out of the living room to do anything but watch our lame movie(super annoying), with a few exceptions.🙄
They both have loved Jurassic Park, Dumb and Dumber, and Ferris Bueller. I tried to get them to watch Wayne’s World over the weekend and it was a flop for them, but that didn’t stop Ryan and I from giggling through the rest of the movie.😆
With our goofy, quirky sense of humor we came up with some fun and easy movies we thought they should see before summer ends. Joey has recently turned into this obnoxious tweener, with eye rolling and snooty remarks at every passing( he will be 11 yrs old this July).
Jayden is a bit easier to please, he still thinks we are cool(at times) he is 8 yrs old, but will usually follow his brother’s lead.
Its a tough crowd around here, not always the easiest thing for our family to agree on a movie at home. If they had it there way we would watch Funnelvision and Dude Perfect videos on Youtube all night long. ugh…😴
Our Summer Agreement
So we came up with a family agreement, we will alternate family movie nights each week. One movie they pick and we will watch it, full of enthusiasm, and then we get to pick a movie and they agree to stay glued to the TV as if it was their favorite Youtuber!
I am not sure how this is going to work out, but I am excited about it! I am eager to have the boys see these great, goofy oldies. Both boys have agreed with one condition, they get to make the first selection. Done!
So Here is our list, if you have any suggestions we are super open for recommendations….
- Wizard Of Oz
- The Princess Bride
- Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure
- Karate Kid
- Super Troopers
- Breakfast Club
- Weird Science
How do family movies at your house work? Who gets to pick the movie? Do you have teenagers or tweeners, adding an element of difficulty to family time? Drop me a comment, I love hearing from you!
🍿 Happy movie night!
