The Family Friendly Movie Revival!
TLOTA: I’m James Faraci The Last Of The Americans and the views that I’m about to express are that of my own and some of yours. A while back I took my nieces to see “The Peanuts Movie” and while my nieces thought it was okay. For me I thought this was one of the best movies of 2015! (Cut to clips of “The Peanuts Movie” and Posters from the movies he mentions as James does a voiceover)
TLOTA: I mean it, for the first time in Blue Sky’s History they were able to make a quality movie and it is as far as I’m concerned it was one of the best of 2015 easily, It is up there with “The Force Awakens”, “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”, “Furious 7”, “Ant-Man”, “Jurassic World”, “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “The Martian”, “Creed” & “The Revenant”.(Cut to James Physically)
TLOTA: And as I was checking out the best movies of 2015 I found a couple of other great movies that were Family friendly and I was checking out that there are more family friendly films that are coming that I feel will be great and after all of that I asked myself “Are We on the verge of the Revival of The successful Family Friendly movie?” Well Sort of…
Hear me out and find out how kids films are with great characters and great stories and intelligence are making a comeback!

This article is from 2015, but there are still some points worth making here.
As far as family friendly films go, I’m trying to think of films that fit in with the categories you mentioned.
Family-friendly films (supposedly) that I’d be hesitant to recommend to younger children:
All Dogs Go To Heaven. There’s drinking, smoking, gambling, and it’s about a dog who dies. Twice. Some pretty heavy stuff there, and I’m surprised it didn’t get a PG rating. Secret of NIMH is another Don Bluth movie that is almost a PG movie.
Adult Animated movies that are NOT for kids:
Pretty much anything from Ralph Bakshi
Family friendly movies that are clearly cash grabs but still good:
Aside from ‘Minions’, there’s the later two Toy Story movies.
Family friendly movies that are cash grabs and NOT very good (if not downright awful):
Don’t get me started on the ‘Smurfs’ movies, Really? The fairy-tale setting wasn’t good enough so the makers had to use the tired device of bringing them to modern-day New York?
Every Direct-to-video sequel to a Don Bluth movie or a Disney movie, though some of them aren’t TOO bad (I’m thinking of Cinderella III).
