Courage is sometimes obvious and other times less blatant than, for example, laying down your life so that others may live or heroically fighting off an enemy. In the course of family films, bravery has been displayed in many different ways -- from a young boy standing up to his boss to a grown man defiantly singing a song of unity and peace in times of war.
We've come up with a list of top 10 courageous moments in family films, but we realize that this list could consist of entirely different moments -- all of them coming from just one or two movies, in some cases. We tried to select moments from different decades and various types of films that appeal to families. Don't agree with our picks? Share your favorite moments of cinematic bravery in family flicks.
