    I checked with my 15 yr old son (big fan of the Colbert Report) and he approved this list:

    Warning!!! Some of these will get you suspended or even thrown out of the play group! (We're on the far end of the bell curve on what we allow.)

    Animal House (Warning) Airplane Anchorman Blazing Saddles Dodgeball (Warning) Dr Strangelove Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Fifth Element Forrest Gump Good Morning Vietnam Gremlins A Knight’s Tale LA Confidential Men In Black Monty Python & the Holy Grail Mr & Mrs Smith Pulp Fiction (Warning) Stand By Me South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut (Heavy Warning - but potential Dad Hall of Fame) Talladega Nights Weird Science Young Frankenstein

    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.

    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!
