We all know how it goes: You're home for the holidays, visiting your parents and siblings and assorted other family members, and after dinner, someone suggests you put something on TV. Everyone hops over to the couch, in agreement about the plan — except no one can actually agree on what to watch. A superhero movie? Grandma's not a Marvel fan. An episode of The Haunting of Hill House? Too scary for mom. Before long, you've given up on finding anything the gang approves of, and everyone's exasperated. But fear not! That doesn't have to be the case this holiday season, as Bustle's Entertainment editors have compiled eight movies and TV shows that the whole family can agree on.
Picking a piece of entertainment that pleases a big group isn't an easy task, and of course, it's possible that even the movies and shows on the list below won't make everyone in your fam happy. But next time you're struggling to find something to watch with your loved ones, it's absolutely worth trying one of the below picks, which range from acclaimed period piece TV shows to hilarious musical comedies. Seriously, these are as close to crowd-pleasers as anything gets.
