Despicable Me 2

"Despicable Me 2. My two older stepsons are obsessed with the movie and our six-and-a-half-month-old is so amused by the minions that I can play part of the movie for him in the morning so I can shower (and therefore be able to function)."
—Tara Mercer

"Despicable Me 2. It was our little boy's first time to watch a movie in a theater and he was all eyes and ears when we were watching. His giggles were music to my ears!"
—Meliza Martinez-Oliva D.

"Despicable Me 2 of course. We all love it because it's fun, entertaining and family friendly."
—Tracey Struthers

Frozen

"Frozen: Great story, great music, interesting twists, beautiful graphics, funny and touching at the same time. And two strong-willed girl characters!!!"
Andrée Raymond 

"We went to Frozen with three generations: Grandparents, parents and kids (seven-year-old boy and three-year-old girl). Any movie that can cross a 68 year age gap and be enjoyed by boys and girls deserves the nod. With winter here now, the kids talk about Elsa visiting our town."
—Linda Wilson VanBarneveld 

"Frozen — excellent story, really worked in music flawlessly and my fiance and I really liked that there wasn't a strong antagonist; it was very much a positive movie. My oldest daughter loved that there were sisters like her and her younger sister. It was nice that there were two strong female characters."

—Laura Lewko

The Croods

"The Croods is a great movie. The story line can be placed in our time and still make sense, and open kids' eyes to other people's feelings. We bought it a couple weeks ago and have watched it about five times. My daughter has it memorized and can describe it all."
Stephanie Sunderland

—Stephanie Ford-Huska

"Turbo, everyone loved it. There was a little something for all of us."
