Do you ever like to watch kids movies? Do you own kids movies even though you don't have kids? What's your favorite? Last night, Hubby and I sat and watched Shrek, Chicken Run and the Grinch Stole Christmas LOL We also have Lion King, Finding Nemo, Ice Age and a few others. My favorite is Little Mermaid. I have always loved that movie. We have Lion King and Finding Nemo on DVD and the rest on VHS (their getting replaced with DVD's). Of course, some of Tim Burton's movies fall into this category as well...Corpse Bride and Nightmare Before Christmas. I love his movies as well...something about how he does them totally with clay just makes them look so awesome. We just really like to watch them sometimes. Oh, and a few months ago we saw Over the Hedge and Hubby loved that one...LOL I think their a nice break from all the troubles we face everyday in life. So, what about you? **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Yes, from time to time, although this hubby THINKS he does not like them. I have movies left over from when my kids were little. I keep them for the grandkids, and myself. When we go to my brother's house we often watch children's movies, and he has never had kids. We like Veggie Tales movies a lot. Sometimes there are terrific lessons in the kids movies, and a lot more good values than in adult movies. I went with my clients to see Underdog. I have The Big Green, Angels in the Outfield, Toy Story, Jumanji, Babe, and a lot of others. Mostly VHS.

I have seen just about every kids movie there is...I still need to see surf's up and ratouille...I know they will come on demand eventually... Here's some other good ones if you haven't seen them yet: Toy Story, Cars, Open Season, Shark's Tale, Flushed Away, Wallace & Grommit My favorite Disney movie of all time is Lady and the Tramp...I also liked 101 Dalmations, Sleeping Beauty, and the clasic Winnie the Poohs... Now ask me to list that many grown-up movies, haha...It might take awhile!!

Alvin and the chipmunks - alvin and the chipmunks
I love kids movies and have quite a few of them. Some on DVD and now some on VHS that were my Moms. When my granddaughter is staying over we always watch a couple. The last time she was here she brought her Shrek 3 DVD which I thouroughly enjoyed because I love all the Shrek movies. Now I have her for the week and my son downloaded the Chipmunk Movie for us and I can't wait to see it.

Yes I do between my psychological thrillers I really enjoy a change. I agree we need a break from our woes in everyday life.

I love children's movies, they teach you a lot of lessons in very simple ways. Even those Barbie series, they have a lot of values to share on friendship and family that a lot of people forget as they grow older. Sometimes, saving a part of the little kid in us is a good thing. It helps us remember that life doesn't have to be complicated.

I love Shrek! I have seen the films soooo many times I have lost count! I still haven't seen the second installment of Ice Age, which is a definite must! Corpse Bride I actually went to the cinema to see, oh and not forgetting all the Harry Potter films too! What about Home Alone? Charlie and The Chocolate Factory two of my all time favourites and Wallace and Gromit? Well I could keep going here, yep definitely love children's movies, not so keen on Disney, but mum loves Disney and has stacks of Disney films.

I've always loved the classic Disney movies, especially Bambi and Fantasia. I've seen a little of Shrek, and I plan on borrowing it so I can watch the whole thing. I've never seen the Little Mermaid, but maybe I'll borrow that too. Those kind of movies do make it easy to forget your worries for a while.

The Little Mermaid is not bad. I loved it when I was 12. I am not sure about now, but I know I did then.

Definitely! I enjoy watching children's movies! Simply because I know most of the time, the ending will give you a positive feeling. My favorites would be, Finding Nemo, Shrek, Narnia, and Pan's Labyrinth, just to name a few.

I like an movie that is for the whole family! I do not like violent movies so I would go to the movies with a family friendly rating, even if I go to the movies by myself! Lion King and Finding Nemo were both excellent movies to watch!

I loved Chicken Run and I got Cinderella or was it Snow White on VHS. I really should get them on Dvd. but usually they are limited. They sure give a break from the action adventure and westerns my husband likes and the romance and women in danger movies I love. I want to get One Thousand and One Dalmatians, both the cartoon and the live one, and also Lady and the Tramp. But my favorite children's movie is Chicken Run. That is a scream. I laughed all the way through it!

I love children's movies! They appeal to what is good and pure in us all and generally serve up an idealistic view of life. I recently saw "Meet the Robinson's" and "surf's up" and enjoyed them both very much.

Yes and I've already told my husband we're going to see "Horton Hears a Who" when it comes out in a couple of weeks. I also love "The Jungle Book". Shrek and Lion King are among my favorites too.

I owned "The Little Mermaid" & "Beauty & the beast" long before I had kids. I have 3 girls so I have all sorts of girlie kids movies & love them. I love to watch "Aquamarine" I think it is such a cute movie.

I have kids 5 so I watch kids movies all the time with them it's funny but they are some great movies and I find that most of the disney movies have adult humor and so this being said I love aladdin and I love the lion king but I find that the lion king is so many shades of wrong.. But all in all I love disney movies they are great.
