Movies for kids are so much fun for the whole family and there are many great movies to choose from. It can be difficult to choose appropriate movies for kids so I always check the movie ratings looking for G and PG for children under age 13. For kids aged 13 and above, PG-13 rated movies can be added to the list of possibilities. It's a good move to check movie ratings and reviews before heading to the theater, renting, buying, or viewing a movie.
I've found that if you can find a good movie in 3D that kids go wild for that!

Here is a site I've found to check movie reviews:
Here are some general guidelines in summary:
As you check reviews for movies, look for indications that kids in your child's age range have enjoyed the movie. A two-year old and a six-year-old might not appreciate the same movie, but then again some movies appeal to all ages, like Disney's Nemo! As you watch movies with your child you will begin to be better able to gauge their interest in certain types of movies.
