My own vote goes to the Ripleys in the Great Outdoors; in a Hollywood world where families always seem to be coming apart at the seams only to be hastily put back together, often unconvincingly, at the end of the picture, it's always refreshing to pop in a tape or DVD of TGO and watch a clearly happy family--and it is clear that all 4 of them do genuinely care for each other--just having a good time together (with occasional bumps along the way, of course). In so doing, I feel, they set more of an example of what families should be than any preachy ending that we're stuck with too often.

Nailed that one Candyfanman! I'd probably vote for them as well. Helps that it's one of my favorite movies. If I had to pick a different family I'd have to go with the Kinsella's from Field of Dreams. They stuck together through thick and thin. Even when people thought they were actually crazy, they supported each other.

I've been thinking on this one and the more I think about it, you guys might be spot on. Ironically, another john candy film may need a mention. Summer Rental.

Gotta threeway tie between the Griswolds, the Petersons from The 'Burbs, and the Freelings from Poltergeist.

Honorable mentions are the Bakers from 16 Candles, the Walshs from Goonies, the Baskins from Down and Out in Beverly Hills and the Browns from Critters.
