House Arrest (1996)
When two parents announce their separation, their kids lock them in the basement until they sort things out.
Why It’s A Good Option For The Whole Family: Though it hasn’t received the same universal praise or recognition as some other titles on this list, House Arrest rocks a stellar cast, a fun premise, outlandish antics, and cheeky humor for children and adults alike. Starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Pollak, Jennifer Tilly, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Wallace Shawn, and more, it’s a stacked deck of recognizable actors — a full house, if you will — in a rambunctious, kid-friendly romp. Indeed, this type of well-cast family flick with a broad premise isn’t seen too often nowadays, nearly making it a product of its time, but you can watch it with your family now on Amazon Prime.
