The glazed ham was cut, the eggnog sipped and the first official NBA game of the season is over but everyone’s still up and wants to watch a good family movie to cap off the night. If “Soul Food” was the first film to pop in your head, you’re wrong. Clearly you forgot about the scene where Miles lifts his wife’s cousin up onto the window seal and sexes her down—in other words, not kid friendly.
We were thinking a loveable, clean family movie that you, the grandparents, the kids, the fun cousins, the sketchy cousins and everyone else in the fam’ can watch together. Oh, and not cringe during the sex scenes or be completely bored by the kiddie sing-a-long portions.
From the hilarious Eddie Murphy to the sentimental Loretta Devine, we’ve got a mix of holiday and everyday black family films you all can enjoy this Christmas.
