Top 7 best Comedy Movies for kids
If you want to buy comedy movies for kids on DVD or Blu-ray, you can do so in our Comedy DVD’s for Kids section. We also have the possibility of watching them online.
Toy Story 3 (2010)
Our current number one on our best movies for kids list. Based on the classic comedy film for children, Toy Story, which was first came out already seventeen years ago in 1995. Back then Children already were getting new toys, and quickly forgetting about their old ones. Toy story tells the story of the toys you do not longer play with! Also in Toy Story 3 they are not about to let this happen to easily. Also old toys want to be played with.
Plot: The toys are accidentally delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy takes off for college, and now it’s up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren’t abandoned, and to return home.
Toy Story 3 has received two Oscars and had three nominations for the Kids’ Choice Awards!
Is Toy Story 3 appropriate for Kids? Yes, but there is a little bit of violence and some scenes can be a quite scary. Perfect for 8 year’s old and over.
The Children’s hit movie of 2007 about the story of Remy, a young rat that whips up the nicest meals in a restaurant in Paris. A great movie that will take you by surprise. Both kids and parents will enjoy the sense of humor, and will go on an adventure with the little likeable rat. It are not just humans that want to make it in Paris.
Plot: ‘Remy is a young rat from French countryside who moves to the great city of Paris. When he makes an unusual alliance with a restaurant’s new garbage boy, the culinary and personal adventures begin despite Remy’s family’s skepticism and the rat-hating world of humans.’
Ratatouille won the Oscar and a Golden Globe for best Animated movie. It also won the Blimp Award for Favorite Animated movie chosen by the Kids of America (Kids Choice Award).
Is Ratatouille appropriate for Kids? Very much so. There are some violent scenes in there, however. Perfect for five-year old’s and above.
A Christmas Story (1983)
For modern-day children already an old classic. But this film definitely belongs on our best comedy movies for kids list. It is the great anti-cute and soft Christmas flicks film. It was a big success back then, and kids continue to enjoy it.
Plot: Ralphie has to convince his parents, teachers, and Santa that a Red Ryder BB gun really is the perfect gift for the 1940’s.
Is a Christmas story appropriate for Kids? There is a little bit of swearing in there, so we do not suggest it for the very young ones. From age 8 onwards would be suitable.
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
Monsters incorporated was a very popular Pixar movie in 2001. With the voices of John Goodman and Billy Crystal it showed kids all over the world, that there is no need to be scared of Monsters. Even if they would excist, they are probably more scared of you than you of them!
Plot: ‘Monsters generate their city’s power by scaring children, but they are terribly afraid themselves of being contaminated by children, so when one enters Monstropolis, top scarer Sulley finds his world disrupted.’
Monsters Inc. won the Oscar for best music for the Randy Newman Song ‘If I didn’t have you’.
Is Monsters Inc appropriate for kids? It sure is. We would suggest from 5 years and older.
Shrek came out for the first time in 2001, and he has not left us since. There are now already 4 Shrek films to enjoy yourself with. The green monster has stolen the hearts of kids with his kindness and humor. A truly great comedy movie for kids. We do feel that the others Shrek movies are also great comedy movies for children, but Shrek 1 remains our favorite.
Plot: ‘Shrek, a green Oger has to save the swamp which he calls home, travels along with an annoying donkey (Eddy Murphey) in order to bring a princess to a scheming lord, wishing himself King.’
Shrek won the Oscar for best Anitmated movie of 2011, beating Monsters Inc.
Honey, I shrunk the Kids (1989)
We could not leave this all-time classic from our list. It deserves a place on our best comedy movies for kids list. Maybe it can not quite compete with today’s special 3D effects, but back then it was quite something. It still is very amusing for kids to watch it.
Plot: The scientist father of two boys by accident shrinks his two kids and two of their friends to the size of bugs. Now the teens must survive while being very small while the father searches for them.
Appropriate for Kids? We think so. About the age of 6/7 would be fine.
