The Princess Bride

Time to update the Netflix queue! The brutally cold weather gripping much of the nation has many tots — and their mamas — going a bit stir crazy. After the holiday gifts have lost their thrill and you've already seen every kiddie flick playing at the local theater, there are few phrases moms fear more than, "I'm bored." Your home may be filled with the latest Pixar and Dreamworks DVDs, but there is something to be said for the classic flicks that many of us grew up watching. So pop a big bowl of popcorn, pull out the warmest blankets you can find, and cozy up to some retro '80s films that will keep the whole family captivated.
