Whether you’re looking for a movie that’s funny, romantic or heartfelt, you’re sure to find something on this list. Each movie is a Netflix original and one that I would enjoy watching year after year. (I left the totally cheesy ones off of the list!)

What makes a clean movie?

As a Christ-follower it’s very important for me to fill my mind with positive things, and movies are no different.

That being said, these are all movies that I could comfortably watch with my mom sitting in the room.

They have no sex and minimal profane language. (Minimal language means less than 10 words in the entire movie and a handful of language means less than 5 words in the entire movie.)

Check the noteworthy section of each movie for details about profane language or anything else you should be aware of.

I wish perfect movies existed but sadly they don’t! Without further ado, here are the movies…
