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?
