These movies may have come and gone for us and yet, the underlying meaning of them will certainly have the attention of today’s kids. We were lucky that we had such great movies and it’s about time that we revive them for the current generation. They are the type of movies that inspire us to be better people, have positive moral values, overcome adversity or simply throw a party! Therefore, we could all benefit from watching them again. Take a look:
1. Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead (1991).
