Netflix is widely known for its diverse catalog, which has something for everyone. From excellent sci-fi television shows to captivating documentaries to fun family movies. All genres are at the push of a button and that is why the company’s audience is constantly growing.
Both adults and children can spend their free time watching award-winning productions with a large bowl of popcorn and drinks. But blockbusters aren’t the only movies worth your time. Here are three amazing hidden gems that viewers can enjoy with their families.
1. The Land Before Time – A Touching Animated Classic
Released in 1988, The Land Before Time is an animated adventure film that tells the story of Littlefoot, a brown male Apatosaurus, and his friends on the quest to finding the Great Valley to reunite with their parents. The movie is considered a classic because of its beautiful animation and genuinely endearing premise. It is the first of a total of 14 movies in the franchise.
2. We Can Be Heroes – Superheroes Can Be in Family Movies
This movie focuses on a group of young superheroes who must work together to find and free their parents from alien invaders. The film was released on December 25, 2020, and features a talented cast, which includes names such as YaYa Gosselin, Pedro Pascale, Christian Slater, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Christopher McDonald, and more.
3. The Lorax – Dr. Seuss Would Be Proud
Based on Dr. Seuss’s eponymous children’s brook, The Lorax is a timeless 3D computer-animated musical fantasy comedy. It is one of the quintessential family movies in the Netflix catalog and guarantees a memorable experience for both kids and adults. Its cast features Danny DeVito as The Lorax, Zac Efron as Theodore “Ted” Wiggins, and Ed Helms as The Once-ler.
In terms of family movies, Netflix has plenty to offer and these three films are an excellent beginning to creating a movie night family tradition.
A Family Wins 3 of the Most Famous Prizes in ‘The Price is Right’
The Price is Right is a TV game show that has been around since 1956. It’s a game show where contestants compete to guess the price of various items to win a vast range of prizes. A family that competed on ‘The Price is Right at Night,’ which was a primetime holiday special, ended up winning three of the most famous prizes on the show.
‘The Price is Right at Night’ Holiday Special
Last week a few lucky families were able to go home with a lot of prizes that were highly unlikely to fit under their Christmas trees. The Derricks family played against two other families and ended up winning big during the Triple Play.
They didn’t just win one car on The Price is Right, not even two, but three cars! The Derricks family took home a Jeep Cherokee Latitude Crossover, a Volkswagen Jetta, and a Cadillac CT4 Luxury. The total worth of their winnings was about $83,735.
Viewers were shocked that one family was able to win such a big prize haul. Most of them took to social media throughout the episode to express their shock. Most people were happy for the family, while others weren’t so pleased stating that they’d rather have the big prize of three cars split equally among the families.
Big Wins Across the Board
While the Derricks family won big on The Price is Right, they weren’t the only ones. The Roy family also went home with a solid $25,000. The Flowers family, who also played, initially won an airstream, but as they went to the final showcase round along with the Derricks family, they took home a hefty $102,478-worth of prizes.
The game brought a lot of holiday cheer to both the families that played and the viewers at home that were still happy for the lucky winners.
