Harry and Tonto

1974 R 115 minutes

An elderly man named Harry is forced out of his New York City apartment where he lives with his cat, Tonto. He normally takes his cat on daily errands with him, either carrying him or walking him on a leash.

Harry tries to live with relatives after being evicted from his apartment, but he seems uneasy about them, so Harry takes Tonto with him on a cross-country trip.

This movie is adorable because Harry talks to his cat just like he is a person. If you are a cat lover and also talk to your pet, you will find a lot to love about this movie.

This has an R rating but aside for a quick flash of nudity, this film should be PG-rated. It is one of the most family-friendly movies in this list.

A Golden Christmas

2010 1hr 29m TV-PG

This movie has a man and woman at odds with each other that are really long-lost friends from childhood. A Golden Retriever is central to bringing the old friends back together.

This film is sort of a Lifetime movie with a Christmas theme rolled into one. Except for the argueing, though, there is no other discord in the film, and should be a good general movie to watch with the whole family.

The scenery and town in which the film is set is also very idealistic and it is relaxing to just view the locale and the homes where the scenes take place. If you like films with small-town settings, this will fit the bill.

Don't wait until Christmas to see this movie. Think of it as a charming gem you can watch at any time.

Beavers: IMAX

1998 TV-PG 31 minutes

This is the cutest film I have ever seen. And until I watched this I had no idea just how skilled, smart, and family-oriented beavers really are.

This documentary follows a set of beavers as they create their own oasis away from the rest of the world. They constantly chomp trees down and build dams and homes for themselves.

One of the most adorable aspects of this film is that it captures the constant baby-like noises that the beavers make, sort of a cooing sound.

This film also captures the affectionate mannerisms the beavers have towards each other, and you watch as they grow into a beaver family, with their own pups.

The Christmas Bunny

2010 1hr 39m PG

This film takes a little bit of strength to watch. A withdrawn foster child finds a hurt rabbit before Christmas and she takes it home to care for it.

She bonds with the bunny but the foster dad isn't too happy with the pet as he blames problems in the house on the rabbit.

The problems really stem from the father's lack of employment and the bad antics of his young son towards the rabbit -- a child that should be taught a lesson.

Although the over-riding theme in this movie is heartwarming, if you have young children, you might want to watch before allowing them to view it to see if you approve.
