"These are movies with some type of word in the title meaning family or a family relationship like father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, aunt, uncle, nephew, neice, twin or cousin. It includes plurals too. Which one is your favorite?"
The list is at http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069293149/...
Now that is what is mentioned on the list page . What is not mentioned on the list page is that this list is a type of game! So I can get only your best picks, each one of you are allowed to recommend five films to this list that are rated higher than the current active lowest rated movie on it ("Big Momma's House 2" (2006) rated 4.6) . Each movie also has to have a IMDB votes higher than the lowest number of IMDb votes of a movie currently still active on the list. (Which is currently "DA" with 391 IMDB votes and is rated 6.4). Now here is what happens. Once the list hits 35 entries, the lower rated entries gets kicked off it. And so does their IMDb vote counts too. In the film with the lowest IMDb vote count gets kicked off the list, get next film still active on the list with the next lowest IMDb vote total sets the new IMDb qualifying vote total. In short, with every film kicked off the list, the rating of of a new suggestion raises and possible the IMDb vote total raises to.
In case there are two. Or more films with the same rating, the film with the lower IMDb votes gets kicked off first.
See how much you can change this list before it goes live should the IMDb should ever pick it.
Movies only. Have fun with it! Make outrageous selections!

hey dgrange...neat little game you set up here...and...though i have no idea about the criteria (numbers and such), just off the top of my head...would any of these be eligible...

'in the name of the father'
'the astronaut's wife'
'dad' (starring jack lemmon)
'who slew auntie roo'
'uncle nino'
'not without my daughter'
or the brilliant woody allen film 'husbands and wives'...

just checking...i'll write more when they come to mind (which may very well be any minute now)...

thanx for your help...peace...

Okey, remember that I limited people to 5 recommendations at a time? All of your would have made it . But I could only take the top 5 in rating and then in IMDb votes to break up ties in ratings. "Who Slew Auntie Too" (6.2 rating with 937 votes) and "The Astronaut's Wife" (5.3 IMDb rating and 937) didn't make it as they were the lowest rated of your suggestions. But hey, I didn't say you couldn't vote more than once. So vote again!
The whole thing about the user ratings is to knock out the lower rated films. The whole thing about the IMDb biter counts is to knock out the unpopular films nobody knows about.
Your suggestions made the list hit 35 and you knocked out "Big Momma's House 2"
Now the qualifying level is at IMDb rating 5.1 with 391 IMDb voter votes.
Vote again and you just might send "Big Momma's House" and "Kissin' Cousins" off the list too.

Obliviously we posted at the same time. You evicted "Big Momma's House" and made Elvis leave the building. But, unfortunately "3 Godfathers" put "The Astronaut's Wife" into orbit." Like Father, Like Son" didn't make it on with a 5.1 rating.
The new levels are 5.4 IMDb Rating (Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit) and still 391 IMDb votes.
