Celebrity kids need hobbies, and spending time with their parents (who most likely aren’t overworked or over stressed and can take care of them) is just one fun way. Why not earn a couple of million dollars while spending some quality time with the fam? It’s the logic behind most Adam Sandler movies, but even good actors sometimes get in on the habit. 

Here are some films that are complete parent-child bonding time… even though they’re multi-million dollar projects designed to increase the IP worth for a company that owns the rights to every image projected on-screen. From box office bombs to some of the best horror films ever, when two creative minds team up… it, ya know, sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad, but in the end, it’s family, and that means something.

To them. To us it means absolutely nothing, and does not keep After Earth from being bad, Will Smith, it doesn’t.
