Nothing beats time with your family. Especially on a long weekend like this one, when your kids and their children gather to remember our fallen heroes and spend quality time together.

After the remembrances, parades and barbecues comes the best part of the weekend. Everyone gathers in the living room to watch TV together. It's an American tradition. In fact, Netflix says its audience soars 20 percent on Memorial Day weekend.

So, what's worth streaming? We've got four movies and a TV show that Kim Komando and her family enjoyed and think your family will, too.

1. Minions

Where to stream it Netflix (free with subscription); Amazon and elsewhere (From $5.99.)

Overview: Starring Sandra Bullock, John Hamm, Michael Keaton; from Universal

This adorable "Despicable Me" prequel is funny, upbeat and charming. Plus, it's great viewing for the whole family.

Mini-Review: "[Its] all-silliness all-the-time philosophy will put a smile on faces and keep it there." (Los Angeles Times.)
