This action-packed animated movie is rated PG.

June 1: “Spider-Man Trilogy” (“Spider-Man,” “Spider-Man 2,” “Spider-Man 3”) – Everyone’s favorite web slinger is back. These Spider-Man movies from the early 2000s star Toby Maguire as Spidey. Like most superhero movies, they are rated PG-13 and are best for the tween-and-older crowd.

June 1: “Stuart Little” (2000) and “Stuart Little 2” (2002) – What’s cuter than a talking mouse? How about a talking mouse wearing a tiny suit that drives a little car? Voiced by Michael J.
