    Cool Best Family Movies from the 80's/90's

    Back to the Future was one of my favorite movies as a kid. Last weekend I rented the movie for my kids to watch (grade school age) and they loved it! We have since watched parts 2 and 3 as well.

    Goonies was another old movie I showed my kids and they loved. Now my wife and I are on a quest to re-discover other good but older movies to share with the kids.

    So, I'm asking all of you. What are some good ole classic family movies from the 80's and 90's?

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Great question. My kids and I went through the BTF series a couple of weeks ago.

    The kids liked Twister. I didn't remember the movie being that bad. I rented Field of Dreams but they haven't watched it yet. Ferris and Xmas Vacation went over very well.
