Let’s face it, a LOT of us are not feeling so good at the moment. Whether it be physically or mentally, we could all use a pick-me-up!
So we’ve decided to compile a list of feel-good movies for you to watch to get back in good spirits. Happy endings, goals achieved, and the little life sparks you need to feel a little better.
The Princess Bride
Ok, so I have to start off with a total classic. But hey, he gets the girl in the end and they ride off into the sunset. And they’ll probably give you some nostalgic feels while you’re at it, so where’s the harm?
Remember The Titans
Yes, there are some sad parts in this movie, but the good outweighs the bad. Everyone coming together for the greater good is always feel-good in my book! (It also helps that Ryan Gosling is in it!)
Those of you that say Elf is only for December are WRONG! This is such a feel-good movie, it should be enjoyed all year long! Plus, who doesn’t want to feel the spirit of Christmas when they don’t feel well!?
While You Were Sleeping
This is one of my all-time favorite 90s rom-coms. The sense of belonging and finding a family is sure to make you feel all sorts of good inside. Plus it intertwines with light comedy to put a smile on your face!
You is kind. You is smart. You is important. This uplifting film is sure to give you hope, while also letting your petty side fully enjoy the thought of giving pie to your enemies…
13 Going On 30
A young girl trapped in an adult’s body desperately trying to find herself? Yes. This movie will help you find your childhood heart again while also giving you hope of a happy ending. And you can brush up on your Michael Jackson dancing skills on your next trip to the bathroom!
Who doesn’t love watching a bunch of goofy nuns dancing and singing and helping kids out? I LOVED the Sister Act series as a kid, so now it’s a nice nostalgic feel watching them again!
A teenage girl finding out she’s a princess is definitely fitting for feel-good. As she navigates through all the new rules and regulations of her life, she finds herself. And the comedy in this movie is spot-on.
If you want a more ‘kick normality in the butt” kind of mentality movie, this is it. Emma Stone knows how to make anything fun. And let’s face it, we all want her parents in the movie to be our parents…
The Breakfast Club
Of course, I had to add an 80s movie to the mix. The Breakfast Club is so iconic that watching it should make anyone feel good inside. No matter their differences, people of all backgrounds can come togehter!
What feel-good movies would you add to this list? Honorable mentions to The Mighty Ducks and the Twilight series for being my go-to when I’m sick for some reason!
