What are your favorite feel-good movies?

“Great Question” (5points)

I overindulged in horror flicks the past two months and am now ready for some feel-good movies but I’m at a loss of what to watch right now. I thought I’d ask the collective what they like to watch.

I’d specifically like to hear about movies made in the last 10 years but I’m happy to hear about others. :)

I highly recommend Patrick, a British movie on Netflix about a young woman who inherits a pug dog after her relative passes away. In the hands of an American director, this movie would have easily slid into sappy territory. I think the Brits avoid that, and this is a wonderful movie.

The Sandlot / My Favorite Year Take aways – Baseball is Life My Favorite Year – You ARE that guy! No one is that good of an actor! Oh, and not nesseasarily feel good, but funny as hell – Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Takeaway- In the name of Her Majesty and the Continental Congress, stop jabbering and feed that ammo belt boy!

I’m kind of an ‘old movies junky’ So I don’t have many new movies that I like. Still my favorite ‘feel good’ movie is ‘Pocketful of Miracles’ (Glen Ford, Hope Lange, Peter Faulk. 1961). I guarantee you’ll feel good after watching it. Of course there’s also classics like ‘The Natural’, The Electric Horseman, The Last Starfighter’, and Pure Luck.
