We recently got rid of Direct TV and we now just have Netflix. I'm looking into expanding our DVD collection and want to add more family type movies we can all watch together. What are some of your faves?

ETA: We already have most of the Disney movies available (or that have been available in the last 10 years).

Not sure if these are Disney or not, but The Goonies and Hook are good.
