List: Comfort Movies

Last night I Tweeted/Facebooked that one of my “comfort movies” is “Dan in Real Life”.

…and by “comfort movie”, I mean something that I’ve seen many times, is easy to watch, pleasant, pretty clean, and doesn’t require too much emotional energy (which, for me, rules out anything TOO dramatic, sad or violent).

You know, like “comfort food”, except in movie form.

A few of my other comfort movies include: While You Were Sleeping, That Thing You Do, Pride & Prejudice, Anne of Green Gables, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Back to the Future, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, You’ve Got Mail…and probably loads of others I’m forgetting.

(note: I didn’t say they were all GOOD movies!)

These movies feel like old friends.

What about you? What are some of your comfort movies?

  1. My favorite “comfort movies” include…

    The Family Man
    13 Going on 30
    Dan in Real Life (!)
    What About Bob
    School of Rock

    They’re ones I could watch (and have watched) over and over again! 🙂

  2. Oh! I haven’t seen the Family Man (yet), but the bottom 4 could definitely all be included on the list! And I thought of another one: Groundhog’s Day! 🙂

  3. Yes — I love Groundhog Day too! Oh, but you’ve GOT to see Family Man — I laughed so hard at that movie… but it is really sweet too!
