What newer movies that are out now are worth watching?

I haven't rented movies in a while and I need to start using my netflix. What are some good family friendly movies out right now? (for an 11 yr old) If you have adult movie suggestions I'll take them too.

  • Just watched 7 pounds, awesome movie, and our 12 yr old just watched The Punisher, and said it was the best movies he's ever seen! (He is 12, lol)

  • City of Ember. Great movie!!! Yes Man was also a good movie, but Im not 100% if an 11 year old would get it.

  • Hotel for Dogs comes out on Tuesday and it was pretty funny, so is Bedtime Stories, but those are the only ones I can think of that I would consider family friendly
    As for adults, Twilight, Australia (I LOVED that but it's very long), The Rocker and Swing Vote are pretty good

  • Depends on what you like. I watched Boy and the Striped pajamas. That one was done well, if you like drama. For the most part Marley and Me was good.

  • Yes Man was OK. I expected it to be funnier. We just got Bedtime Stories and it looks good but we haven't watched it yet.

    A movie for older teens or adults, Charlie Bartlett was really good. Not what I was expecting but surprisingly good.
