So few G-rated movies

Has anyone else noticed that there are a lot fewer G-rated movies these days? Look at the family movies in theaters for the holiday season -- http://fun.familyeducation.com/slideshow/movie/48962.html -- all rated PG and up.

The next G movie due in theaters is "Gnomeo and Juliet" in February. Where are all the G-rated movies?? Seems like it's because of the profits and popularity of all the 3D movies geared toward older kids.

Parents, do you bring your little kids to the movies and are you missing G-rated films? Or do you mostly just watch movies at home these days because it's gotten expensive to go to the theater?

Thank for sharing the stuff. I had read the review about movie on rotten tomatoes and seems interseting to me..

Even with just one child and a spouse, it costs around $50 for admission, popcorn, and sodas. (I'm addicted to movie theater popcorn!) I think the prices at the concession stand are a bit on the exorbitant side, but once you're at the theater, there's only one place to go for snacks! Netflix, Blockbuster, or HBO are probably infinitely more economical -- but, of course, sometimes you need the big screen experience to get the full effect of the movie. And yes, I agree that there are too few G-rated movies. "Tangled" was a good family movie and so was "How to Train Your Dragon"; but, you gotta admit... a lot of the entertainment value would be lost if you watched those movies on the small screen.

Sophia S. - You are absolutely correct! As a young girl, I could not wait to see the new releases in the movies with my parents and then have a great dinner at my favorite restaurant. Today's movies are targeting the youth with sex, crimes and bullying. The media is concerned with capturing a younger audience at any cost without the responsibility of what actions the youth demonstrate after viewing such garbage!

I agree....so hard to find good kid movies that don't have crude and adult themed humor in them....argh! Enjoying seeing some of the recommendations posted here. We have small kids and have a family "movie night" at home on Friday nights....we order take-n-bake pizza, put a picnic blanket on the living room floor, and watch a movie. I like to check out the content information provided by Pluggedin.com to pre-screen the movies to make sure we don't have too much stuff we don't want in the movie. There's also a dollar movie theater here that occasionally has good kid-friendly movies....it's a fun treat. The big screen really does make a difference!! :-)

I was reading online that Cineplex has a new feature called a "SuperTicket" which allows you to watch the movies in theatre, and download a digital copy so you can watch it at home. I think the Smurfs 2 would be a good movie to try it out on! I usually end up getting a DVD of the movies my family likes anyway. superticketcineplex .com/smurfs2
