The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this activity site -- which pairs kid-friendly movies with kid-friendly things to do -- is most helpful for big-city dwellers, since it gives specific recommendations for outings in the country's major metro areas. But you can tailor most of the activities to your own town (for example, after watching Bend It Like Beckham, head out for some Indian samosas). Any red flags in the featured movies are mentioned -- if there's a racy romance scene, for instance, or if kids will be scared by the movie's message.

What's it about?
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em...on the couch, that is. KIDSOFFTHECOUCH.COM took that folk wisdom and turned it into a site that encourages families to explore their communities by pairing kid-friendly movies with similarly themed outdoor activities. Just watched The Greatest Game Ever Played? Hit the local golf course. Made it through Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Beeline for your local chocolate shop.
Is it any good?
In addition to activity ideas, you'll also find helpful info about each movie (why it's worth it, who'll be interested), handy discussion questions, and other site, book, and movie "Cultural Connection" ideas. Links on the site also let families rent or buy the featured movies and visit recommended locations, from restaurants to museums.
