List RulesVote up your favorite family films that were released in the 1990s.

"You're killin' me, Smalls!" That's just one of the many lines you'll be reciting as you vote on this list of best 1990s family movies. With so many hilarious and quotable films, it's really hard to say what the best 90's family movie is. That's why we created this list- so you can vote for your favorite 90s family movies

Home Alone, starring Macaulay Culkin and Joe Pesci, is one of the most iconic Christmas family movie of the 90s. Not only does it have Kevin's iconic scream, but it was nominated for several Oscars as well. It's a classic Christmas movie, but it's definitely fun to watch year round. 

Or maybe The Sandlot is the greatest 90s family movie of all time. A bunch of rascally kids have a summer they'll never forget in this great blockbuster hit. With so many memorable moments (this movie taught you not to chew dip and go on amusement park rides), The Sandlot surely deserves to be towards the top of this list of the best family movies of the 1990s.

Which of the films below is your favorite? Upvote the top 90's family movie (in your opinion), and add a movie to the list if it's missing. And if you like these films, we're sure you'll like our list of family comedy movies.
