2010 was a great year for movies, especially if you were a kid. There were kid-friendly flicks about diaries, dragons, and despicable villains, and let’s not forget about the movie that blew the summer competition away: Toy Story 3. You didn’t need to be a kid to fall in love with Woody and the rest of the gang all over again.
That being said, here are the Top 5 Best Kids Movies of the Year. Disagree or have another movie you want to add to the list? Share in the comments below.
Toy Story 3: Buzz, Woody and the rest of the crew are back for the third installment of the Disney/Pixar classic, and this time, their owner, Andy, is headed off to college. A misunderstanding leads the toys to daycare, where a whole new adventure begins, complete with a new ‘bad guy’ (who knew teddy bears could be so evil?). Expect laughs along the way, but don’t be surprised if Mommy or Daddy sheds a tear at the end.
Ramona and Beezus: Based on the best-selling children’s books by Beverly Cleary, this feel-good family comedy follows the antics of Ramona Quimby, a 9-year-old who’s a big ball of energy and imagination. She doesn’t mean to get into so much trouble, but it always seems to follow her everywhere she goes.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The hilarious, sometimes gross, moments of Zachary Gordon’s middle school life will make the kids laugh out loud. More importantly, the movie will get the kids interested in reading all the books in the wildly popular series.
Despicable Me: This hilarious, heartwarming flick shows that even the “World’s Greatest Villain” can be good…and a good father!
How to Train Your Dragon: You don’t need to be a fan of dragons to fall in love with this movie. Part action-adventure, part buddy comedy, this tale follows the friendship between two unlikely heroes, a Viking named Hiccup and a not-so-ferocious dragon named Toothless.
