Clean Family Friendly Movie Reviews

Help us start a list of Clean Family Friendly Movies!

One of the goals of Clean Cut Media is to raise awareness of the influence of media on our culture and our Worldview. It is not an easy task as by nature much of what is written pushes up against what our culture would consider the norm. However in addition to this primary goal, Clean Cut Media aims to also be a resource where people can come to find fresh perspective and reviews on movies, music, tv shows and other media.

Hard to find Good Clean Family Friendly Movies Online

There are so many ways to watch or rent a movie. These days you can stream movies online at a flick of a finger, yet it is not an easy task to figure out which movies are wholesome, safe, and free of sexual innuendos, sex scenes, violence, vulgar scenes, and bad language. It’s nearly impossible outside of a few children movies (and even many of those are questionable). As someone who spends tons of time with youth students myself, it isn’t easy to find a definitive list of clean movies I can check out.

So I’d like to start a list of Clean Movies as well as Clean Family Friendly Movies so those who will find this post can have a list of movies they know is safe to watch both for their children and for themselves. Also please contribute popular movies that seem safe at first glance.

Please Share Your List of Clean Movies & Clean Family Friendly Movies

Here is what you can do.

Comment below with the Names of Movies that you consider to be clean and/or family safe.

Please label them as Family Friendly / Clean

Clean Movie: This means no sex scenes, no or minimal sexual innuendos, no or minimal bad language, no excessive violence/gore, and no bad message!

Family Friendly: Basically would you take your 10 year old daughter to this and be perfectly comfortable with what she is taking in?

Exceptions: I realize finding perfectly “clean” movies is really hard, so if you know of any movies that violates a portion of these categories, just notate it next to the name. You MUST note any amount of bad language, sexual innuendos, sexual scenes, bad message, violence – think about parents of very young kids who may want to use this list to choose a movie. More information the better. Also if you know the RATING, please note it as well.

Please also contribute movies that come off as family friendly but you found to be unacceptable as well as any popular movie titles! (Ex. The Later Shrek movies are NOT for kids! Tons of Sexual innuendos and jokes). If you see movies below that do not have proper warnings, let us know!

Below are some samples to start off. Please follow the general format.

I’ll update this as people comment. Red = Not Family Friendly

    This list of movies will help those that are Christians but their faith is falling, and those that are in marriage but it seems as things are not working out.

    each of this movies when you watch them they draw you closer to God so that we can understand that Jesus loves us and that is why he did what no man on earth has ever done for us.

    Jesus died for us so that in him we can leave and in him we can have life and life in abundance, but the devil has come to kill, still and destroy.
    that is why he is also using media(movies) so that he can destroy us.

    that is why we have people that can’t make a sentance without swearing all that came from the devil through media.

    I respect the people who started this chart so that we have restore what the devil has destroy.

    no matter how good or great the movie is the fact that they are swearing that destroys you, and change you.

    be blessed by this movies they don’t have swearing, at all no sexual immorality at all. what they have is life in them.
    you watch it when your faith is falling at the end of the movie you are so in love with Jesus and continue to appreciate life every day.

    1. war room
    2.God’s NOT dead
    3.Facing the giants
    4.the encouter
    5.fireproof(if you think your marriage is going down please watch this one)
    7.heaven is for real
    8.a matter of faith
    9.the passion of the Christ

    for those that have never received Jesus and welcome them in their hearts you can make this simple prayer and nothing will remain the same upon your life, just by this simple prayer straight from your heart you will be saved of every sin that you have committed and you became new in Christ.

    pray: Lord Jesus, Come into my life, be my personal Lord and Savior, write my name in the lamb book of life as I give my self to you Jesus Christ,
    Fill me with your Spirit so that I may never be the same again, thank you Jesus for dying for me, I receive your salvation today in the name of Jesus. Amen

    And guess what, the work of God says that when one soul comes to Christ the heaves celebrates so you are being celebrated in heaven. and the word of God also says that if any one is in Christ the old is gone and the new has come(2 Corithians 5vs17).

    never worry about what you have done for it is nomore.

    be blessed.
