10 Feel Good Movies to Watch Now

May 06, 2020
I was flipping through the channels earlier this week and had to stop at one of my all time favorites - My Best Friend's Wedding. It got me thinking about those feel good movies that I will always stop and watch regardless of how many times I've seen them. The beauty of these movies is sometimes they transport me to the first time I watched them, to a good memory I have of watching it or right now, just to help me forget the state of everything. Here are ten of my favorite feel good movies that I will always watch over again. 


Legally Blonde || My number one always, I could watch this movie every single week. Who doesn't love Elle Woods bringing happiness wherever she goes. It also helped me fall in love with Boston!

My Best Friends Wedding || This is an oldie, but such a goodie. The best scene of this entire movie is when they sing at the restaurant and the waiters are waving their little lobster claws - makes me smile every time. 

The Wedding Planner || Pretty sure this movie is the reason why I wanted to plan weddings. When Jennifer's character takes out nail polish remover from her bag and says she has everything you could ever need in there, it's what I think of every time someone at a wedding has a random request and I actually have it in my little "case." 

Sex and the City || I love SATC marathons and the movie is like watching so many episodes at once! I was actually studying abroad in Rome when this movie came out and a group of us went to go see it in the theaters so I will always remember watching it with subtitles!

Sweet Home Alabama || Classic Reese Witherspoon to me! From the Tiffany proposal to the "get down here and give me a divorce" line - it's pretty much a chick flick at it's best! Can't even tell you how many times I've said - "you have a baby, in a bar", when seeing a baby at a bar!

It's Complicated || Meryl Streep in this movie is just WOW! I think her relationship with Alec Baldwin is so fun, but the unsung hero in the movie is John Krasinski. Also, all the kitchen's in Nancy Meyer's movies are dream kitchens!

The Intern || Robert DeNiro is hilarious in this movie and Anne Hathaway plays overworked CEO to a T. I wish a senior citizen Intern program was a real thing because I guarantee we'd all learn something good working with them. 

Bride Wars || You don't have to be planning a wedding to love this movie. I was planning a wedding during the same time as my best friend, but thankfully we didn't want to get married at the same time. We did have the same wedding dress designer so without giving too many details about our dress we had to stealth like deduce that it wasn't the same one! Poor Bride vs. Rich Bride, Nice Bride, Vs. Bridezilla - definitely some funny moments. Also, Bryan Greenberg is one of my favorite actors!

How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days || A classic if there ever was one! I'm pretty sure that I know every line in this movie - inflections and all. The way Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey banter is the best and her outfits are my favorite - including the one she wears to deliver the love fern!

Home Again ||  I don't know what it is about Home Again that makes me smile, but I love Reese's character starting over again and starting a new business all while housing 3 wanna be's in LA. Just relearning who she is at 40! Plus, Nancy Meyer's kitchens again!!

After I compiled this list I was reminded of a few other's that I can't get enough of including Because I Said So which reminds me so much of the relationship I have with my mom and sister and honorable mention to Devil Wears Prada that I also love and have seen so many times. Everything about the movie is just ah-mazing, but the clothes and Paris Fashion week are my favorite!


What's your go to movie to watch over and over again?

  4. Legally Blonde is one of my faves. This is a great list. I went back and watched every episode of sex in the city a few years ago and I want to do it again. I missed so much the first time!

  7. I've watched Legally Blonde a gazillion times and could watch it a gazillion more ! I don't get to watch movies as often as I'd like these days with watching our grandkids but I loved watching the Sopranos Series on HBO !

  8. YES to It's Complicated! It's one of my top go-to guilty pleasure movies. John Krasinski is the best in it. How to Lose a Guy will always hold a special place in my heart because Ryan and I watched it together on one of our first dates!

  9. I object!! I still to this day use that line when my husband throws a whistle at me. Lol. I share so many of the same feel good movies as you do. I’d add Maid in Manhattan, Two Weeks Notice and Music and Lyrics. And The Devil Wears Prada. And Miss Congeniality. Okay. I’m done. I think. 🤣
