 When I was that age, me and a few friends got together and rented the Friday the 13th movies that were available up to that point, I think up to 6 and we stayed up all night till about 6:30am. My dad didn't have an issue with us watching the series.

If there be one of them who does not follow the way of the Snitzil, let that one go and do not throw bowling balls at them.

I see this is an older thread. Had the party yet? You didn't say when it was. If so, what did you end up showing? If not, my suggestion is below:

Eragon would be a good movie for them.
The main character is a young boy, that lives an adventure. There's no sex, drugs, or bad language in the movie either, and plenty of action, to hold their attention (I would think so anyway).
Good luck!
