Honestly I didn’t feel like writing and all my drafts aren’t ready to be published. So I took a page from my inspiration post and went to Pinterest. I saw a pin about movies and here we are.

1. Legally Blonde

Do I really need to explain why I love this movie? “Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.”

2. Pride and Prejudice

Even though in this scene they are angry with each other, it’s seriously one of my favorite scenes. It’s such a classic love story with the ultimate happy ending. Excuse me as I watch this for like the billionth time.

3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

I remember watching this for the first time and laughing and laughing till my stomach hurt. And I’m not just saying that my stomach really hurt from laughing so much.

4. Spy

Omg hahahahaha this movie hahaha it’s gross and SO FREAKING HILARIOUS! And it’s a great woman empowerment movie. I seriously said ‘You go girl’ so many times during this movie.

5. Tangled

Awww! This movie just makes me feel good. Plus Pascal and Maximus are adorable. I’m a sucker for pretty much anything Disney.

6. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

It is a little dark, but it’s Harry Potter related. I was going to put Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone but that’s really my favorite HP book. Plus the magic, the era the beasts=awesome.

7. Bridget Jones’s Baby

It wasn’t the most original and it was kinda predictable but I think it stayed true the Bridget Jones saga. When she’s trying to go to the hospital? Ahahahaha

8. Finding Dory

Another Disney movie? Yup! Finding Nemo was brilliant and Finding Dory did not disappoint. So cute!

9. The Benchwarmers

I forgot about this movie until I came across it on TV one day. I totally rediscovered how funny it is! It can be stupid which makes it even more lighthearted. Plus the ending is cool.

10. He’s Just Not That Into You

This movie is so cliche it hurts- but the end makes you giddy, Plus the book is aaaaamazing!

What movies make you feel good?

    I’ve seen ALL of these and they are fab! I especially enjoyed Spy because Melissa McCarthy is a comedic genius!

  • Ahh Monty Python and the Holy Grail is my all time favorite! Also – Juno and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist!


  • Olivia Stacey

    Just reading this post made me smile! Such a great list of flicks. Two other favorites of mine are “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and “Dirty Dancing.”

  • II saw Bridget Jones’s Baby it’s so funny! Especially her British accent. I think I saw Spy before, it looks fun too! “He’s Just Not That Into You” is that movie where the boy was the best friend fiance but somehow become the other girl’s bf right? Or did I got that part wrong? Haha

    • That sounds like ‘Something Borrowed’ haha ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ is about how women deal with men.

    Pride and Prejudice (all of them) are my favorite. I just can’t get enough of the remakes and everything. Great movie choices. I’ve had to add “how to be single and bad moms.” Love those two a lot.

    • Omg ‘Bad Moms’ hahahahaha!

    • I didn’t see it in theaters! I waited and have it on my laptop now haha.
