July 2013: Family Movies Playing This Month

July 2013′s family movies have a father coming to grips with his daughters growing up and discovering boys – oh yeah, the minions(yippeee!), a favorite American western hero, a comic book hero, a young man coming of age story, a snail who wants to be what he’s not – so many lessons for kids there, some crazy grown ups who get bullied by college students and those lovely little blue people are back. Looks like it is going to be a fun family movie month! It is going to be a very hard decision as to which ones I want to see right away… hmmm, I may be at the movies every weekend.
