The 9 Kids' Movies Adults Love
The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid
Some films are just for kids, and others are for the kids at heart. These nine movies prove you're never too old for imagination and a good old-fashioned happy ending. 

Any grown woman who says she doesn't want to be a part of Ariel's world has never dreamed of combing her hair with a dinglehopper—or she's lying. The little mermaid looked at everyday items with such wonderment—remember the banded, bulbous snarfblatt?—that it's hard not to want to see the universe through her eyes. Plus, she's got a band of underwater sea creatures setting the mood for her dates with a prince. That's the life. (And for those who don't speak Scuttle, a dinglehopper is a fork. Snarfblatt? A pipe.)
