Mom-Approved Movie Listing

Mom Approved

The movies listed below (in no particular order) are movies I have personally approved as a good family movie based on my own personal criteria. (I only include reviews for those movies that I have personally approved for movie night. Those that I have not found to meet my own personal criteria are not reviewed).

These movies are in no way an endorsement of any particular movie, movie company, or actor. Most can be purchased through any online video retailer, such as www.cbd.com, Amazon, through your local bookstore/video store, or through print catalogs.

Movies that are followed by “F/F” are movies produced by a company called Feature Films for Families. This company edits movies for offensive material. I have only viewed the Feature Films versions and not the “original” versions and cannot therefore give an opinion on versions of the movie not handled through Feature Films for Families. I have no affiliation with Feature Films for Families.

Below is a list of Mom-Approved Movies. I have seen each of the movies and recommend them.

And yes, feel free to print the list!

  1. Thanks so much for putting this list together for us! I hate having to wade through movies to find out if they are good or not. We have the same standards that you folks have. I am excited about purchasing some of these to use on family night.

    • Thank you, Connie, for your kind compliment! I am so glad this list has been helpful to you. May God bless you and your family!

  2. Wow! This is a great list. Our family has seen quite a few of these but I had no idea there were so many more good choices out there. I’m so glad I found your blog.

  3. Hi Nancy!
    Thank you so much for putting this movie list together. My husband and I have seen a lot of them, but like someone else said, I had no idea there were so many that were family friendly! I am going to pass this list to my daughter and daughter-in-law so they can see movies that are good for our grandchildren, ages 7-14. : )
    Have a wonderful weekend and even more wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones! May God continue to bless your book ministry and all of your ministries! One day, I am going to get all of your books. Do you have a special price for someone who gets them all at once? I LOVE historical Christian fiction!!!
    Love in Christ!
    Judy

      • LOL, Judy! Don’t feel bad about calling me Nancy. I have done that before too and I always manage to call my kids by the wrong names! 🙂

        I am honored that you have found the movie list to be helpful. I have such a passion for finding wholesome movies for families. Please feel free to print off the list and pass it to your family.

        You asked about a special price for all of my books. The best price I have found for the books in my Montana Skies Series is at Christian Book Distributors for $19.99 for all three (the regular price is $29.97). The link is http://www.christianbook.com/montana-skies-series-volumes-1-3/pd/742744?item_code=WW&netp_id=916458&event=ESRCG&view=details

        The best price I have seen for 77 Ways Your Family Can Make a Difference is also at CBD for $10.99.

        However, all four of those books are available anywhere books are sold, including local and online retailers too! My other two books are available at Amazon and B&N.

        Also, Judy, I am always honored to mail personalized bookplates for readers to insert into their copies. Let me know if you’d like me to mail you some!

        I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas as well!

        In Christ,
        Penny

  4. You’ve done a lot of good work here to identify movies for families. I have only seen a handful of them and most of them I’ve never heard of. One suggestion, it would be helpful to have the date/year of the movie. I think there are probably some older movies that could go on this list which you are probably updating as time goes by, like Pollyanna and It’s a Wonderful Life. Maybe the children wouldn’t be so interested today. It would be good to find out 😉 Thank you for all the research!

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you for your excellent suggestion. I agree, there are many good older movies that need to be added to the list. BTW, I loved Pollyanna as a child! Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂

    • Thank you for that compliment! Some of the movies could definitely be enjoyed by your grandkids, even though they are not little anymore. 🙂 And I think that’s a fantastic idea for your great-grands!

  5. My spouse and I stumbled over here different page and thought I might
    check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.
    Look forward to looking at your web page for a second time.

  6. Wow! Nice list! Thank you for sharing at our TGIF Link Party at A Peek Into My Paradise. I hope you will be back to link up another awesome post this week!
