Matthew Broderick says his role in the upcoming animated film The Tale of Desperaux has earned him some major cool points with James Wilkie, his 6-year-old son with wife Sarah Jessica Parker. Father and son caught the flick together "about two weeks ago," Matthew says, with good results! "He loved it," the 46-year-old actor tells OK!, adding,

"It’s fun for him and he gets into the movie pretty quickly and he’s seen me in a few things so he’s not that thrown by it. He’s used to me being in cartoons."

Next up? "A family-type, small Christmas" in New York City, Matthew reveals.

The Tale of Desperaux hits theaters Dec. 19.

Such a lovely family. So modest in presenting themselves, despite being enviably wealthy. I always look forward to hearing about their parenting strategies. Their son is a great credit to the two of them.

I always think it’s sweet when parents do films that their kids can watch, it puts a whole other level on it, when you’re able to combine your career with your home life like that.
