Best Kids Movies on Netflix Right Now (2020)

16 of 52

37. Cheaper By the Dozen

Release Year: 1950

Written and Directed by Walter Lang

Starring Clifton Webb, Barbara Bates, Jeanne Crain, Betty Lynn, Myrna Loy, Edgar Buchanan, Mildred Natwick, and Sara Allgood

Before the remake that starred Steve Martin, there was the original Cheaper by the Dozen from 1950. A story about an eccentric, meticulous father and a down-to-Earth wife who raise 12 children, the sheer number of people and different parenting methods lead to crazy adventures and mishaps.

A timeless classic, this is one of the best all-around family movies on this list, as it is more than likely that people of every age can find something to enjoy in this one.

With so many animated movies in the kids and family genre on Netflix, this one gets lost in the mix and could be a nice change from the norm. Oh, and it’s in color on Netflix, so don’t worry about being forced to sit through a black and white movie.
