Everyone loves a good movie but sometimes it can be hard to find interesting and exciting movies that are age appropriate. Of course, what a teen thinks is appropriate might be very different to what their parents agree is okay to watch. We’ll leave it up to you to have that conversation with your own parents .
BUT to get you started, here are ten of our very favourite PG-13 movies that are worth watching. Your parents may even want to watch them too!!
PS – Your mum will especially love Mamma Mia!
Another good list: 50+of the best movies to watch with your teens
1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1/Vol. 2
I loved Guardians of the Galaxy because I love Marvel and it has an awesome storyline and an even better soundtrack. It is a great choice if you love adventure, Marvel and action.
2. Knives Out
I couldn’t share a favourite PG13 movies list without including a couple of crime and mystery movies. Knives Out is one of the absolute best! This movie is roughly based on the games ‘Cluedo‘, which I have also always been addicted to. You’ll love this movie if you also like crime, mystery and adventure. Watch the sequel too: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
3. Jojo Rabbit
Jojo Rabbit was amazing as well, it was funny and had a great storyline!! You will love it if you like adventure, WWII and a good joke. Writer and director Taika Waititi is totally bonkers and we are here for it. Check out his other movies like What We Do in the Shadows (M rating) and Hunt for the Wilderpeople (PG) as well.
4. Avengers infinity war/Endgame
‘Avengers Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers Endgame’ are also Marvel movies and they were incredible and quite sad towards the end. You will like it if you like action, adventure and Marvel.
5. Sing Street
Sing Street is a really good movie for many reasons; it’s a great movie for teens and adults, it has some great songs and a very enjoyable storyline. You will like this movie if you like music, harmless protesting and gorgeous Irish accents!!!
Nerve may feel a little left-of-centre to make my favourite PG13 movies list, but it’s just a fantastic film. It has incredible cinematography and an even better storyline. Emma Roberts is accompanied by a great cast in this movie. You will like it if you like thrillers, adventure and futuristic films!
7. Miss Congeniality
Miss Congeniality is a light-hearted, humorous movie in which an FBI agent (played by Sandra Bullock) goes undercover at a beauty pageant. You will love this movie if you enjoy comedy, mystery and crime.
8. Mamma Mia!
Mamma Mia! is a timeless film for all ages. It is often performed as a musical so it is no surprise that the soundtrack is amazing! If you like romance, family films and sing-a-longs, this movie is for you!
Jumanji (2017) completely outshines the original movie (made in 1995 with Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst). While its storyline is extremely similar to the 1995 version, the new cast, as well as modern film editing, are the cherries on top. If you like comedy, adventure and strong female characters, you should definitely watch Jumanji.
10. Wild Child
Wild Child is your classic comedic teen drama. It follows the journey of Poppy (Emma Roberts) after she gets send to a strict UK boarding school. You will like ‘Wild Child’ is you like movies similar to ‘Mean Girls’, comedy films and Disney Channel!
