The term family-friendly is applied to entertainment or educational material (most frequently movies and video games) which is appropriate for use by all ages. It is characterized by being free from sexual description (in words or images), profanity, blasphemy, drug use, positive depictions of criminal violence, etc, and is respectful towards Christian world-view and values.

Though the system of movie age ratings can provide some guide to the content of entertainment, it does not offer a complete description. To fill this niche, Christian services such as CAPAlert provide a detailed breakdown of how different aspects of a movie could be considered unsuitable for families.

The term family-friendly may also be used disparagingly to imply material has been sanitised to the point it is misleading, unrealistic or inaccurate.
