best feel good movies

Tools    





I got for good luck my black tooth.
what are the movies that are just fun or make you feel good for one reason or another?

Two that come to mind for me are Big Daddy and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

50 First Dates

Forrest Gump

Practical Magic

Oscar (starring Sylvester Stallone)

And so many more.

I'm with the Amelie as well. The Goonies always puts me in a good mood too....

Lord of the Rings Return of the King. you really get the feeling if you watch all three of them in a row.

You can see his head with his teddy ears bobbing up...then gone...up...then gone. When I was a kid I'd have giggling fits that I couldn't stop whenever that scene came up.

Speaking of the funny man named George: What about Love at First Bite? I remember laughing a lot when I was kid watching that one too...but I don't really know if it's anything that can be considered 'feel good', but funny rather. Though funny does 'feel' good...but there has to be some sort of line drawn in order to tell the two apart.

I guess the line would be that the movie has to be fairly bright and sunny and has to have a happy ending. It should be fun and not too serious. But then again you could argue that any movie that makes you feel good could be considered a feel good movie.

Randomly visiting for now
I definately agree with Forest Gump, it's a very uplifting story. Also I felt Garden State, Dead Poet's Society, 50 First Dates and Eternal Sunshine of the spotless Mind have made me feel good as of late .

I agree heartily with Garden State. Even though it was a bit sappy I got sucked into it and the characters were great. I love scrubs and I was glad to see Zach Braff in a movie.



It's time to meet your maker...
I don't know... for me, it's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Any agree with me on that one?
