The best family movies to watch on Netflix during the summer holidays*

With the summer holidays fast approaching I'm sure you have lots of fun days planned for the family. But I know there are going to be days when you just want to chill at home in front 4KTV Panasonic and your fan with a few snacks.
It's not always easy to find a movie that every family member will want to watch. So I've done the hard work for you and found some of the best family movies on Netflix.


The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl is officially Darcy's favourite film at the moment. So much so that she knows it word by word. It's rather cheesy and so badly acted and so badly made its enjoyable in way that you can make fun of it and making fun of it is enjoyable. Sharkboy is played by Taylor Lautner of Twilight frame if you find your self scratching your head like I did trying to work out where I knew him from.

Annie both the original and the remake are on Netflix. Another fun and warming musical film to sing or tap your toes along with. I'm sure you and all your family will be singing its
'Hard Knock Life' for days afterwards. I have to admit i prefer the original as it was one of the first musicals I remember watching as a kid.


Back to the future 1 - 3, you know you need to introduce your little one to classic films. And the Back to the future is a stone cold classic from the 80's, and the other 2 are highly entertaining.


Matilda one of the many Roald Dahl story brought to life in a charming way. You will laugh throughout the film and cheer Matilda on as she outsmart all the bad eggs. It's a delightfully funny film with an incredible cast including; Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, Mara Wilson and Pam Ferris. Pam Ferris as The Trunchbull steals not just every scene she is in but the whole film. You can't help but boo her every time she is on the screen.


Despicable Me 2 Gru returns with his trusty minions for another hilarious film. If you loved number, Gru is recruited by the 'Anti Villain League' to stop an evil villain from unleashing a serum that turns anything into a weird monster-like purple maniac. Meanwhile, his adopted girls try to play matchmaker and find him a girlfriend. There was a lot of great content aimed specifically at adults too but kept lighthearted and still suitable for the kids.

What is your favourite film to watch with the family?
