Funniest Movies for Kids

Planning to spend the weekend with kids? Grab a DVD of some of the funniest movies for kids, and laugh the weekend away with your family...
It's magical. Everything that happens inside the darkened theater in a span of two hours spells fantasies in its own countless ways, budging you away from your otherwise monotonous life, with bonus sometimes tears, and sometimes laughter. Doesn't watching an exceptionally funny movie keep you exhilarated, no matter how many times you sign up to watch it? You wait for the weekend to come, so that you can gather your extended circle of family members (who are otherwise acquaintances), plan a lunch together at home, and begin with a movie marathon. Well, that's what my family does. Ever since I have understood what movies are, I've seen mom fighting over a particular pick, dad putting forth his choice as a movie worth watching, when ultimately, it was me who was levied for the final decision. Well, if your kids too are the 'heads' of your family, it's always a better option to shove away discrepancies and dedicate your day to the kids. So, whether your family is as rattle-brained as mine, or whether you're simply hunting for some of the most hilarious movies for kids, this treatise is dedicated to all movie buffs who're bemused by talking frogs, dragon balls, cats and dogs romancing, and funny men tumbling with every step they take. A good laugh is just a perk.

Funniest Flicks for the Li'l Ones

What are some good funny kids movies? The previous year brought with it its own endows which, today, rank way up high in the list of the funniest movies.

Name Year What's the Fun?
Big 1988 The fun is in being a big man with brains of a 13 year old boy. Big is the story of a teenager who is so fed up of being a child that he requests a fortune telling machine to make him big. What happens next? Grab a DVD and unlock the answer.
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids 1989 So, this funny movie is about a professor who accidentally shrinks his and his neighbors' kids to 1/4 inch by using his electromagnetic shrink ray. He then sends them out into the backyard with the trash, and that's when the fun begins. Give this one a shot, for it's considered as one of the most hilarious films for kids.
Dumb and Dumber 1994 When you talk about the funniest movies ever, it's a shame to not include this Jim Carrey flick who has already bemused kids with Mask. It features two fellows, and the tragic situations in their life, that actually, appear extremely funny. It'd make a good watch to you and your notorious kids!

Ice Age 2002 This, is the best animated movie for kids to watch with family. Not even a single instance in this movie would bore or disgust you. Well, that's how it's created. The story follows three Paleolithical mammals who attempt to return a lost human baby to its parents, which becomes even more interesting with each moment that passes by.
Toy Story 3 2010 If your kids enjoy movies in 3D, Toy Story 3 could be the perfect pick! The fun lies in watching toys having a life and individual stories to tell. Toy Story 3 has won countless international awards, and is hence, an extremely funny movie to watch with your family.
