It’s difficult to find movies that the whole family can gather around, but this list of the best family comedy movies on Netflix should be able to alleviate the burden. From vintage Disney (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) to modern animated classics (The Nightmare Before Christmas) to a FAMILY of spies (Spy Kids), these top-rated Netflix family comedies should have both Uncle Mort and Little Susie gathered around the tube. 


This list of family comedies on Netflix features both subversive adult works in the masquerade of child adventures (Pee Wee’s Big Adventure) as well as guilty pleasures (High School Musical) that adults adamantly refuse to admit. And this is not to mention the insane, HFS!-ness of Dana Carvey’s The Master of Disguise, which appears here as well.
