Family films are a genre that aim to appeal not only to children, but to a wide range of ages.
While the storyline may appeal to a younger audience, there are components of the film that are geared towards adults- such as witty jokes and humor. This genre may fall into many other genres including: comedy, adventure, action, fantasy, Sci-Fi, animation & more.
For older kids some films & TV shows are great to watch together, especially those centered around family values.

The Motion Picture rating industry the past few years has been designating PG-13 to films that at one time would of been rated for a mature audience.
It is suggested that you research a movie before hand, including the comments under each movie on TRAKT
HERE IS A CHART:
The Motion Picture Association (MPA) film rating system used in the United States:
‘G’ – General Audiences -All ages admitted. Nothing that would offend parents for viewing by children.
‘PG’ – Parental Guidance Suggested -Some material may not be suitable for children. Parents urged to review "parental guidance". May contain some material parents might not like for younger children.
‘PG-13’ – Parents Strongly Cautioned - Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. Parents are urged to be cautious. Some material may be inappropriate for pre-teenagers.
‘R’ – Restricted - Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian. Contains some adult material. Parents are urged to learn more about the film before taking their young children with them.
‘NC-17’ – Adults Only - No One 17 and Under Admitted. Clearly adult. Children are not admitted.
'Not Rated (NR)' - If a film has not been submitted for a rating or is an uncut version of a film that was submitted, the labels Not Rated (NR) or Unrated (UR) are often used.
