Ever since renting a VHS from Blockbuster went the way of the dodo, families have been using online streaming services like Hulu to create a new version of "family night." The best family movies on Hulu have a little something for everyone to enjoy, from mom and dad, to the younger kids, to teenagers, and everyone in between. Enjoy these movies side by side on the couch with your family. And please remember to share the popcorn with your sister, okay? 
 

Dr. Seuss's children's books-turned-films are well represented on this list of the best family movies streaming on Hulu. Here, you'll find recent smash-hit The Lorax (voiced by Zac Efron),  and two oldies but goodies: Dr. Seuss on the Loose and The Cat in the Hat. We also have the classic cautionary tale, Trading Mom, starring Sissy Spacek, which tells the story of three children who decide they’d like to trade-in their mother for a new model. For a guaranteed laugh, try watching School of Life, starring Ryan Reynolds as a teacher who shakes up the system.
