The Sleek Awards: Best Family Picture

Who am I kidding? I loved this movie way before I had a family. This is just one of the best pictures of any genre, ever, end of story. And since the 20th anniversary of its release is only a couple of months away, now is as good a time as any to bestow this award on it. So....

The Sleek Award for best family picture goes to:

The Princess Bride

You've all seen it, so I won't bother with the synopsis. Instead, here's a little reenactment some dude did of one of the most famous scenes from the movie. If you're as familiar with this film as I am, you'll know just how good this kid is.

That is bloody brilliant. 'Clearly' one of the greatest movies ever. I couldn't wait for my kids to reach the age where they could appreciate this movie as I do.
A tie for Best, or at least a close second, is definitely 'A Christmas Story'. Or perhaps this should be in a category of it's own.

wildflower: That's a hell of a point you make. It's definitely the best Christmas movie ever and it may give TPB a run for its money.

I love this movie! My mom took me to see it in the theaters when it first came out and I watch it on TV everytime it comes on. Still, I would vote "Secondhand Lions" for best family pic.

I would second 'A Christmas Story' ... for obvious reasons.

anita: Welcome! I've yet to see Secondhand Lions, but if you think it trumps the mighty TPB, I'll have to check it out.

fleming: Ha! Now that's funny.

My boss suggested I see the movie
The Brow Bunny Can any one back him up on this? Or should I find a new boss?
