Here are five movies from various platforms families may want to consider. Note: Since not all are appropriate for younger children, age recommendations are included.

Netflix: "Mr. Peabody & Sherman"

The Parents Television Council praised the film for keeping the franchises original flavor, stating, While parents who remember the series from The Bullwinkle Show may enjoy this film more than their children, it is a safe and fun romp for all ages; and kids may appreciate being introduced to these funny, adventurous characters. The website indicates there is little content of concern to parents other than a few instances of rude and potty humor and perilous situations. Ok.com recommends the film for viewers ages 4 and older.

Redbox: "The Good Lie"

Common Sense Media refers to the film as a feel good drama that is hopeful and educational. The website warns, however, that although the films subject is thought-provoking, it also lends itself to upsetting moments and scenes of heartbreaking tragedy. Ok.com recommends the film for viewers ages 13 and older.

Amazon Prime: "Big Fish"

Pluggedin.com said the film portrays multiple uplifting values, including a strong commitment to marriage and kindness toward others. The website also highlighted a few concerns about the film, including brief (rear) nudity, some inappropriate jokes, three-too-many S-words and scattered violence. Ok.com recommends the film for viewers ages 13 and older.

Amazon Instant: "The Lorax"

Common Sense Media said this adaptation of Dr. Seuss story promotes conservation and protecting the environment, stating, kids will leave the film wanting to do more to help the natural world. The review notes, however, that there are at least 70 different marketing promotions throughout. Ok.com recommends the film for viewers ages 5 and older.

Redbox: "Frozen"

The Dove Foundation gave Frozen its Family-Approved seal for all ages, stating the film features themes of sacrificial love, friendship and loyalty. Because the story does include a snow monster that may be a bit frightening, the website provides a word of caution for very young children. Ok.com recommends the film for viewers ages 4 and older.
