Really this should be renamed the Family Musical list but I couldn't find many solid family films that didn't involve music hence why my Musical list later on focuses on some films I've only seen once. However most of these films on this list are family classics which shouldn't detract from its theme of family which is important in all 10 contenders here. Poppins just pips Oz to top spot but again this is a list I'll have to improve in future.
