Favorite Kids'/Family Movies

Just saw "Akeelah and the Bee", a wonderfully inspiring, wonderfully acted, very well-done, story of a 11 year old girl who overcomes great odds to win the National Spelling Bee. A feel-good story ... but not groaningly corny with one-dimensional characters, like for instance, the Stuart Little stories. Real people with real flaws who battle to do the right thing in spite of those flaws. And also none of those filthy, double entendre sex jokes that prompt "what does THAT (oral sex, e.g.) mean" questions from the kids.

Anybody else got some favorites in this genre?

Baseball/Reconciliation Movies

Just saw "Field of Dreams" with Kevin Costner. Great b-ball movie and great for those of us who grew up with dysfunctional relationships with our dads (did anyone besides Tiger Woods have a functional relationship?). I really love a story about reconciliation ... whether or not it's actually possible. This story, which includes a lot of wonderful back stories, centers on the evolution of one man's reconciliation with his dead father. My wife and I enjoyed this together ... and talked for WAY longer into the night than we should have, about our dads ... a wonderful evening ... and morning.

Anybody else have favorite baseball movies, and/or movies that sparked wonderful, healing conversations with loved ones?
