How to Pick a Family Movie Without Picking a Family Fight

This post is part of a sponsored series with Fandango. All opinions, thoughts and experiences are my own.

With my partnership with Fandango’s Family Room, each month I write an article relating to movies.  This month it’s all about how to pick a family movie without picking a family fight.

I know.  It’s easier said than done.

But, I share four easy tips for making the decision easier.  For everyone!

How to Pick a Family Movie Without Picking a Family Fight

  • Research Your Options.
  • Don’t Overload Them with Choices.
  • Designate a “Picker” before you get there.
  • Split and Conquer.

I go into greater detail over in Fandango’s Family Room, so go check it out to see how we pick a family movie without picking a family fight!

    I like the idea of limiting options…that helps!

  2. 2

    We always designate a picker. The kids share turns as well as hubby and I so we always find something everyone enjoys.

  3. 3

    My husband and I alternate who gets to pick which movie. Also, thankfully we have the same taste in films.

  4. 4

    we like to watch movies together.

  5. 5

    thankfully, my family doesn’t really fight over movies right now.

    Great tips! With the wide spread in ages of our family, it’s easy to end up in disagreements, so even though the times all five of us are together are few and far between, taking turns to pick really helps out!

    Limiting options is key.

  8. 8

    We used to take turns choosing the movie and then snacks are something that everyone will enjoy!

    PS. I got your email and I’m still on the road so I haven’t answered, but I wanted to let you know that I got it.

    It’s just my 6 year old and I, so family movie night is whatever I can stand watching that she will like 🙂

    We take turns on who gets to pick the movie. We also take turns on where we eat when we eat out. 🙂

    Hubby and I can never agree haha baby will most likely pick once old enough 🙂

    The three of us fortunately have the same taste in movies, so it’s unusual that we are in opposition to seeing any one movie over another. Every once in a while I will drag my husband to a chick flick, he endures it with popcorn and Raisenettes 🙂

    Great tips! I love Fandango.

    We don’t have movie nights all that often around here but when we do everyone has a good time. There are so many TVs/monitors that when there’s a movie that only one person wants to see they just watch it when they feel like it. Then when there’s something that we all want to see we’ll actually make a night of it. I think that’s the main reason why it’s always fun for everyone.
