This proves more difficult than it sounds.

A fun simple comedy from the 1980’s.

Suitable for family veiwing although there is some swearing.  Teens and adults will appreciate it more than young children.

The 1945 version is even better as a screwball comedy that is very witty and full of great one liners, but is not easy to find.

GreaseGrease 2The lives of a group of high school students in their senior year.

This movie, and its musical versions, is famous for its great music and dance scenes.

Plenty of humour, satisfying dance along style scenes, and very catchy music.

Not suitable for children as it does deal with plenty of teenage issues, but this was a very popular movie for teens.

Grease 2 has a similar story to the first Grease movie. This time a new class rides motorbikes, instead of driving cars.

Not as good as the first and the music isn’t as catchy, but if you enjoyed Grease you should probably see this one too.

ClueBased on the popular board game. This is a comedy murder mystery movie. Which person at the dinner party did the murder?

A slightly weird comedy, part slapstick, part farce, part mystery.

Not in the style that children would enjoy, but an entertaining movie for adults. Watch for the three alternative endings that make it a bit different.
