30 Movies to Watch With Your Family

When my dad and aunt were visiting for Thanksgiving, they wanted to watch a movie. So, I racked my brain for a fun movie without intense sex scenes or excessive swearing. (My dad’s a stickler.) We finally settled on Good Will Hunting, and it was perfect. So! In case you’ll be hanging out with relatives for the holidays, here’s a list of 30 crowd-pleasing, non-awkward movies…
