Top 10 Movies of 2006
As 2006 draws to a close, Kidzworld is reflecting back on the movies that made us laugh, cry and gasp with excitement. Here's the cream of the crop from 2006.
#10. Best Movies of 2006 - Monster House
It doesn't take long after the neighborhood tyrant, Nebbercracker, collapses on his lawn for three kids to discover that his house is a living, breathing monster (with a penchant for eating those who annoy it). The film mixes all the elements of a good horror flick - death, the supernatural, spooky basements - while still maintaining its comic edge (and even a little romance).
#9. Best Movies of 2006 - Cars
Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is a hotshot racecar on his way up in the professional racing world. He has his eye on the prize - a big sponsorship deal and world-wide fame. But when there's a three-way tie between Lightning and two best cars in the league, he has to head out to [kwlink]California[/kwlink] for the race to end all races. Check it out with the whole fam - there's something in it for everyone.
#8. Best Movies of 2006 - Charlotte's Web
There's a good chance you've read this classic story about friendship, courage and a remarkable pig. Charlotte's Web stays unwaveringly true to the book it's based on. It's full of big name stars - at least their voices - and live animals acting super-cute.
#7. Best Movies of 2006 - Flushed Away
When a pampered pet rat gets an unwelcome visitor, his whole world goes down the drain. But that's only the beginning of this unsuspecting rodent's adventures. Flushed Away is a hilarious movie that is truly fun for the whole family, with lots of slapstick gags for the younger kids and a few well-timed "adult jokes" to keep mom and dad interested.
#6. Best Movies of 2006 - Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Will Ferrell is back - and this time he's faster than ever. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is a laugh-out-loud hit with moments of pure comic genius. The actors improvised a lot of the lines, giving the film a bit of a Saturday Night Live feel. Talladega Nights is must-see film that you'll be quoting well into 2007.
