Wedding Woes

Outdoor Movie night poll

Tomorrow we are having our new neighbor friends over for a fire and a movie projected on our garage. It will be the parents and my two girls (4.5 & 1.5) and the neighbor girls (4.5 and 8). I can't decide what movie to show! I was originally thinking Hocus Pocus but my H shot that down. I don't want to do one my girls and probably theirs have seen a million times like Frozen or Moana so I am thinking either a newer movie or a throw-back.
Here are the ones I am considering:

Spies in Disguise
Abominable
Matilda
Homeward Bound

Pregnancy Ticker

    I only know the second two as well and I'd go with Matilda. I love Homeward Bound but I remember that movie making me cry my eyes out even as a little kid.

  • @cupcait927 good point! I don't need four crying little girls on my hand lol. It was one of my favorites is why I considered it.

    Yeah that’s a good point! I also lived Matilda too and that might produce fewer tears. 
  • Is it possible to present two options?
  • @STARMOON44 Possibly! We have access to all these movies via our streaming accounts. I just wasn't sure if I should pick something to eliminate disagreements among the kids but I could maybe text their mom with two options.

  • I adore Matilda.  ADORE.

    Spies in Disguise was very funny and it's very pretty.  Abominable was just okay for me; if it hadn't been as beautifully animated as it was, I don't think I would've liked it very much.

    It's been so long since I've seen Homeward Bound, I can't recall anything but dogs.

    I’m a sucker for Matilda. I also like Homeward Bound but I still remember sobbing during it as a kid. Tbh I’d probably still cry as an adult.

  • Matilda.

    Amazing movie and there's so much backstory about Mara Wilson during it {Danny Devito was amazing to her during filming because her mother was dying}

    I loved Homeward Bound (and the original Incredible Journey). My children loved it too. It even inspired a family "joke" that whenever we hug someone long and hard that person says "sweetheart sassy can't breath"!

    About crying with Homeward Bound ... one time my husband was out for the evening and I decided to rewatch Homeward Bound as an adult.  I started sobbing at the end, and that was the point where my husband decided to call me from the grocery store to see if we needed something.  I picked up the phone bawling, and tried to get out that it was just a movie and I was so happy the old dog wasn't dead, but he just heard the "dead" part and a crying wife.  He was very freaked out, poor guy.  We joke about it all the time now, lol.
