A bit older maybe but as you mention they are mature, I loved Seems Like Old Times when I was a kid. Saw it when I was ten, but would have enjoyed it even a few years younger than that.
Good ones. Here are a few more.

Big (Tom Hanks)
Parent Trap (Lindsay Lohan)
Stardust
The Last Starfighter
Dragonslayer

I'd prefer movies with enough complexity to keep adults entertained, but they've got to be off the beaten path a bit. Classics with some artistic merit are preferred. We're talking a mature (too mature) 6 year old and a 9 year old here. The Hobbit is about as far as I'll go with the six year old as far as adult themes, and I caved on that one in a moment of weakness (I wanted to see the damned thing too, and I figured letting him see it was my best bet).

Some others they've enjoyed lately:
Escape to Witch Mountain
The Last Mimzy
Air Bud and all the "buddy" movies (groan, I can't stand watching these).


I'm thinking I may hit up all the Miyazaki movies soon. They saw Ponyo when they were younger, but I think they'd like all of them. My older child is obsessed with movies (like on the verge of Asperger's obsessed), so I'd like for him to at least watch stuff that isn't total shit, as he'll sit there and watch Super Buddies, Air Bud, Santa Buddies, and that dreck over and over if I let him, which causes no end of fights about what we're going to watch on family movie nights.
The Peter Sellers Pink Panther movies are great.

I watched the Kings of Summer a copule of weeks ago. It is a very good flick, reminds me of some of the movies I watched as a kid in the mid 80's to early 90's.

Wes Anderson meets Rob Reiner

Watched Prince Avalanche on new years day. It was a low budget, different kind of movie, probably artsier than I can truly appreciate, but those are good every now and then. Stars Paul Rudd, and the other guy you would know, but I don't know his name...he's been in stuff though. Nothing happens...so don't watch it if you like a lot of stuff to happen. Not a knee slapping comedy, very subtle. Watch at your own risk, and only if you don't mind nothing really happening for an entire movie.

There's obviously a story and a climax, but its not build up for an hour then we see the aliens then everybody dies in a gory battle. But nothing really happens.

Watched The Wolverine this past weekend. It was pretty good. Easy to tell how it was going to end in the first 15 minutes. Still pretty funny to watch my wife's reaction at the ending though.

Still have yet to see the new Thor movie.

Iron Man 3 was alright. Not the best of the 3 at all.

Kick Ass 2 was disappointing.

I'd forgotten all about Kick Ass 2. I was hoping it would be as good as the first, but it doesn't sound like it.

LOVE that movie. Haven't seen it in years but I was actually thinking about it the other day.

Ah, Aladdin. Definitely categorize that as a dark comedy.

A really good movie. Underrated. Paul Rudd is probably one of my favorite modern day actors. The story did not make me climax, however.
