10 Movies that Won't Drive Mom to Drink

familywatchingtv_2163_19278073_0_0_9619_300“So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.”

I don’t know about you, but Gene Wilder still does it for me in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  I never fail to laugh at the devilish candy titan’s reaction when he watches Mike Teevee disobey his warning and hop onto the Chocolate Television machine:  a very unenthusiastic,  “Stop. Don’t. Come Back.”

Thank God for  kid movies that don’t make parents want to slit their wrists in boredom.  Andrew O’Hehir of Salon recently set down a list of his Top 10 Kids’ Movies That Aren’t For Kids.  Here’s his take:

1. ” Spirited Away”

2.  “The Nightmare Before Christmas”

3.  “Wall-E”

4.  “Fantastic Planet”

5.  “Coraline”

6.  “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory/Willie Wonka”

7.  “The Witches”

8.  “The Dark Crystal”

9.  “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”

10. ” Gremlins”

Personally,  I’d add “Finding Nemo” and, for dancing elephant and hippo lovers, “Fantasia”.  Anything missing?
