Is there anything more relatable in modern filmmaking than an embarrassing kids' movie moment? There is something so quintessential and sympathetic about childhood embarrassment that more adult-related cringe comedy just can't match. Perhaps it's because these moments cause viewers to think back to a time in their lives when awkwardness felt like the worst thing in the world. Maybe it's because it reminds us of embarrassing memories we've long forgotten.
Whatever the reason, it's hard to argue that some recent classics haven't absolutely nailed the exasperation of preteen angst. Pixar triumphs like Turning Red and Inside Out capture the essence of middle school shame while other movies like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and A Goofy Movie highlight parent-related embarrassment. And remember when Smalls gets torn to pieces by the local kids for his abysmal throw in The Sandlot? Yeah, that stings. So, scroll on down and vote up the kids' movie moments that make you want to cover your eyes and skip forward.
