Absolutely not the Simpsons! That is a show for older teenagers and adults only! 10 year old children do not fit the cut!

Most Disney/Pixar films are fine for children - though you could definitely bore a child as old as 12 with those - also - it would help to know whether you are sitting for boys or girls - that age is such a fine line and it is also important to know what is acceptable in the eyes of the parent to show the children. To rattle off a few titles I as a film historian recommend off the top of my head - Brave, Toy Story, Cars, Charlotte's Web, Monster House, Bolt, The Neverending Story, Labyrinth, The Secret Of NIMH, Hocus Pocus, Now And Then, The Sandlot, E.T., Dreamer, Freaky Friday, The Muppets, Enchanted, Casper, Beethoven, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, Annie, The Parent Trap, Peter Pan, Finding Nemo, Flicka, Bridge To Terabithia, Spy Kids, Because Of Winn-Dixie, Fly Away Home, Babe - again - just a few rattled off the top of my head - I hope some of these titles will help =)

Something similar to Despicable Me or Megamind. Toy Story, Kung Fu Panda. Maybe some Tom and Jerry movies would be good.

Classics never let you down. Even as a young adult I love Beauty in The Beast, Snow White, Aladdin and other such movies! If anything, avoid common Disney T.V shows. They encourage inappropriate behavior and negative outlooks, aside from crude comedy.

Well, I'd probably say, the Dolphin Tale. Maybe also twilight if you're allowed to be around swearing and kissing. Another good movie is We Bought A Zoo.

Well If your babysitting, I don't suggest sticking them in front of a TV. Go play outside with the kid's or do something productive and I'm sure the mother of the kid's will be even happier but if movies are your only option than watch something like Disney movies. Kid's seem to enjoy those or ask the mother what she recommends. :) No harm in asking.
