Here are 10 best films for families.
•In “The Adventures of Tintin,” a visually sumptuous animated adaptation of Belgian cartoonist Herge’s famed comic books, the curiously coiffed young reporter finds himself drawn into a centuries-old mystery. 
•Actor Samuel Jackson narrates “African Cats,” an impressive nature documentary charting the varied fortunes of a pride of lions and a clan of cheetahs.
• A comic book adaptation, “Captain America: The First Avenger,” relates the origins story of the superhero with a complete absence of cynicism and a crackling undercurrent of dry wit.
•”Cars 2,” sees a veteran racecar competing against a cocky Italian speedster in the first-ever World Grand Prix. Amid the sight gags and belly laughs are good lessons about family, friendship, self-esteem and acceptance of others (A-I, G).
In “Gnomeo & Juliet,” it’s love at first ceramic clink for two garden gnomes.
Vivid animation and a ringing endorsement of the traditional family combine to make “Mars Needs Moms” a film kids can enjoy and parents will appreciate..
Kermit the Frog and Jim Henson’s other singing, dancing, wisecracking puppets return to the big screen in “The Muppets,” an old-fashioned and genuinely funny comic outing.
“Rio” is a buoyant animated adventure with music about a Brazilian-born macaw who returns to his homeland after being raised as a cosseted pet in Minnesota. .
“Soul Surfer” recounts the story of a devoutly Christian competitive surfer whose life is changed forever by a shark attack. It’s an uplifting tale bolstered by stunning cinematography and an unapologetic treatment of religious faith.
“Winnie the Pooh”  is a delightfully innocent, predominantly animated adaptation of A.A. Milne’s classic children’s books.
