My daughter Leila’s teacher seemingly loves Pee-Wee Herman. She introduced episodes of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse to the kids recently and my daughter loves them. She even came home asking me if I knew who Pee-Wee Herman was!
Do I know who Pee-Wee Herman is?
I shared with her the fact that I also grew up watching Pee-Wee’s Playhouse and watching his movies and what not and she seemed shocked…as though she had the monopoly on 80’s pop culture reinvented. So, during our last movie night at the house, we both had the perfect movie suggestion. We watched the new Pee-Wee Herman movie and had a blast. The coolest part was how my daughter was enjoying a movie with a character that I grew up with and loved it as much as I did. I’ve had a similar experience with movies like Annie and The Jungle Book and thought of how cool it would be to be able to watch some of my favorite movies from childhood with my daughters.
So, this summer, I’m planning to have even more movie nights with my daughters; only I’ll be sure to incorporate some of the classic movies or movie remakes from my childhood that I loved most. One thing that makes this really simple and affordable for me is my Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan. Not only does it come with unlimited talk, text, & data – which is awesome – but it also includes one free movie on VUDU every month per line! (new release rental, $7 value.)
I’m super excited about the free movie on VUDU since I can use that movie for our family movie nights. Once you download the movie, you can always just watch it on any other devices, such as Smart TV, ROKU(R), Chromecast(R), VUDU Spark(TM), tablet, or other compatible devices. The entire plan only costs $49.88, with 10GB of 4G LTE.
The Walmart Family Mobile plan is offered on a selection of new phones. I purchased the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime over at my local Walmart at a rollback price of just $79.92 (Rollback from $99.92). You will also need to purchase a Starter Kit if you are not currently a Walmart Family Mobile plan subscriber, but the great news is that the Starter Kits are cheaper than before and now on rollback for just 19.88 (from $25) through July 7th.*
If you need some ideas to get you started, here are my top choices for the best classic movie remakes to watch with your kids (in no particular order):
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
The Karate Kid
The Wizard of Oz
101 Dalmatians (coming soon)
Ghostbusters (coming soon)
I’m super excited about our movie nights and hope they can get even a glimpse into my childhood, I’d be proud. I’m glad we can put that free movie from VUDU to good use and have a blast in the process. …And then what can I do with the rest of that large data bucket of 10GB of 4G LTE data? Download some music for our weekly dance party of course!
What are your favorite classic movie remakes you’d like to watch with your kids?
