Great Kids Movie

I am always on the hunt for great kids movies that don't deal with so many issues of the day. "My Netflix" recommenced this after seeing what other movies we had been renting.
It is made by the creators of The Gods Must Be Crazy, (which is funny because I saw that at the movie theatre at the Wilkenson Center)
It is so funny and quite educational about animals in Africa. I strongly suggest it.
Our girls laughed out loud every time when the monkeys doing somersaults down the hills.

If you have any other great kids movies please share!

You can buy the movie on amazon here

Thanks for the tip. Whitney is all about animals these days so we keep getting documentary-type shows like
"The Life of Mammals" series from Netflix. She loves them.

I know what you mean about trying to find kids films which don't deal with 'issues' - I've had a hard time trying to explain why the man throws himself off the highrise in 'The Incredibles' and why Nemo's mummy 'disappears' in 'Finding Nemo'. Pixar annoy me like that. And where is Andy's daddy in 'Toy Story'???

Are you going to store good film titles under this 'Media' label? That'd be really useful!

Ryan is really into ALIAS, I just don't get it! we tried mary poppins and the little mermaid, but she still loves her Alias, good thing we have it through blockbuster so we don;t have commercials, she gets really impatient with commercials.

Awesome! Thanx for the tip. My kids love anything animal!(we don't have any)Chloe never played with dolls or barbies-stuffed animals were her babies! Plus, they love anything African! Two Brothers was enjoyable and so was Djuma, but I can't tell you if there were 'issues'.Don't recall. We'll have to check this out. -ciao

If your girls are into animals you should be watching the Plant Earth mini series on the Discovery Channel on Sunday Nights. They are incredible!!! They spent a ton of money shooting animals with movie equipment vs. standard "nature movie" equipment and it is amazing. We all love watching them over and over. I think there are 2 episodes for the next three Sunday nights. Thanks for the tip on this movie. We will check it out. I greatly dislike "issues" in kids movies too.

Sounds like a great movie! I thought the Gods must be crazy was really funny.

I loved The Gods Must be Crazy! I've never heard of this but now I can't wait. Do you think Blockbuster would have it?
