2009 was a great year for movies, including family-friendly children’s movies!
Whether you fell in love with chubby, industrious Russell in Disney • Pixar’s “Up” (one of the best movies from the lot) or renewed your crush on Alvin and the Chipmunks, or rooted for the Monsters in “Monsters vs.
Aliens,” you’re bound to have a favorite children’s #movie from this past year… even if you didn’t take the kids!
In case you missed any, here’s my list of the ten best children’s movies from 2009.
Director: Betty Thomas
Cast: Zachary Levi, Justin Long, Jason Lee, David Cross, Jesse McCartney, Amy Poehler, and Wendy Malick
I admit it: I thought this movie was going to be horrible.
When my daughter asked me to take her to see it, I rolled my eyes and reluctantly agreed.
The previews made it look wretched, and the soundtrack was even worse.
But, and I hesitate to type this publicly, it really wasn’t bad.
After a back-stage accident leaves #Dave hospitalized, the Chipmunks enroll in school, and are asked to compete in a Battle of the Bands.
Three of their biggest little fans, the Chipettes, are set to compete against them, but in #the end, they discover they work better together.
