Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, Love Actually, Elf, The Princess Bride, Mean Girls, Legally Blonde. All are fantastic for viewing when you're depressed.

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

Love Actually for sure, also Adam Sandler movies are pretty funny but more the older ones like Big Daddy and Happy Gilmore.

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

Whenever I get sick, I watch movies that I used to watch over and over when I was little: The Princess Bride, The Neverending Story, The Little Mermaid, Ghostbusters...

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

Sound of Music ALWAYS cheers me up
Also "The Holiday"- Jude Law and the kids( his daughters in the film) always put a smile on my face
Also...Disney Movies are the best bet to cheer me up, so is Sorceror's Stone.
Oceans 11 too
And of course Pride and Prejudice

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

The Princess Bride is a good one. Also, Bridget Jones' Diary! And anything with Hugh Grant in it, I just think he's hilarious!- especially in About a Boy! They really all make me giggle.

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

Yeah, when I'm down or sick, I always put on my old disney movies. Especially Beauty and the Beast, it's my favourite, I watch it over and over. I don't mind putting West Side Story on either, that always makes me feel good...until the end though, then I feel sad again

The Big Lebowski. Anytime I'm depressed, I just pop that in the dvd player and laugh to death watching it.

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

When I'm feeling miserable or sad, just listening to the music from Enchanted, since I don't own the DVD, cheers me up. I love that movie!

The Princess Bride is my favorite movie!! It's definitely a good one to watch when you're feeling down. If, "Anybody wanna penut?" doesn't cheer you up, then I don't know what will.

Disney movies are also great for when you're feeling a little blue.

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

People keep mentioning Princess Bride! I wholeheartedly agree!! No matter how many times I’ve seen it, I still love it =) Never fails to make me laugh

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

Usually fluffy types of films, Bridget Jones, The Holiday, films like that. I have a limit though, I find The Notebook a little bit too sweet. Oh and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, one of my favorite movies.

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

Hmm, a number of comedies should do the trick but here are 50 movies that come to mind, a few of which have been glaring omissions


Dirty Dancing (with a female majority on this forum I was shocked to discover this hadn't been mentioned yet! )
Some Like It Hot
Ferris' Bueller's Day Off
Field of Dreams
Forrest Gump
Good Will Hunting
Groundhog Day
Classic Sandler (Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer, etc)
Love Actually
Meet the Parents
Mrs. Doubtfire
The Princess Bride
School of Rock
Sleepless in Seattle
The Shawshank Redemption
Amelie
Top Gun (except the part where Goose dies )
Raiders of the Lost Ark
American Pie
Wedding Crashers
Secondhand Lions
My Cousin Vinny
It's a Wonderful Life
National Lampoon's Animal House
Roadtrip
The Philadelphia Story
American Pie 2
Airplane!
It Happened One Night
Caddyshack
Remember the Titans
National Lampoon's Van Wilder
Bull Durham
Radio
School of Rock
August Rush
Click
Dumb and Dumber
Harvey
Dodgeball
Jerry McGuire
Just Like Heaven
Arsenic and Old Lace
Bringing Up Baby
Anchorman
Ocean's 11
Harold and Kumar Go To Whitecastle
Superbad
Cool Runnings
The Blind Side

Now there are a few tear inducing scenes in that bunch, but sometimes it's good to let it all out with a good cry...and anyways overall I'd consider those "feel good" movies that are one or more of the following- full of laughs, contain happy endings, inspirational messages, etc

However, for a number of those I've found they can occasionally have an adverse effect...for instance if you're single and you're feeling lonely, well watching romantic movies by yourself can make you want someone even more. I'm often guilty of torturing myself like this

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

Just three for me:

Center Stage
Billy Elliot
Hairspray

I'm sure they've already been recommended, but they're my personal substitute for chocolate. XD

Re: Movies for when you're a bit down

Who doesn't feel better after watching Mary Poppins or Singing in the Rain?
