Feel Good Movies

Feeling a bit rubbish, looking for a movie to perk you up, and make you feel happier? I wanted to share with you, my favourite feel good movies. Some are cheesy, some are classic, some are sort of sad..but ultimately, watch any of these and I can guarantee you'll have a warm feeling in your heart :)
 
#15 Big Fish
One of the best Tim Burton movies out there. It's very Tim Burton without the grey, dark theme. Starring Ewan McGregor & Helena Bonham Carter (of course), it's about a son listening to his father's stories, and trying to determine the true stories, from the fictional. It's a really lovely film.

#14 Love Actually
Honestly one of my favourite romantic comedies of all time. I love all the actors in it, the soundtrack,  the stories that all link up in to one. Not to mention the lovely, classic ending featuring a little boy running through an airport for a kiss. So sweet.

#13 Singin In The Rain
If you haven't watched this, you have to. It's such a brilliant movie. The songs, the dancing, it's just the perfect amount of cheesy, and I guarantee you'll be smiling afterwards.

#12 Notting Hill
Another lovely romantic comedy. This is definitely another firm favourite, starring the amazing Julie Roberts and the classic Hugh Grant. It's just a heartwarming, yet hilarious film. Rhys Ifans is so good in it!

#11 The Shawshank Redemption
Now this is a classic if I ever saw one. Ok, so the whole movie isn't cheesy, nor romantic, but the ending will make you feel everything.

#10 The Breakfast Club
I obviously had to add one of my top three favourite films of all time. Everything in this movie is feel good. The dialogue, the story line, the soundtrack, the dancing! It's just an amazing movie.

#9 Yes Man
I love Jim Carrey in this film, and it also features Bradley Cooper & Zooey Deschanel, so what's not to love!? It's a really great, motivating, not to mention hilarious watch.

#8 The Blind Side
Based on the amazing true story of Michael Oher. A traumatised teenager is welcomed into a caring woman and her families home.

#7 Bridget Jones' Diary
The first one is still my favourite. But I do love them all. They are honestly such brilliant and funny films. Pretty realistic too, in most aspects and oh so relatable. 

#6 Date Night
Two of the most hilarious people starring in a movie together, as a married couple. What more could you want! Their home life is so relatable, and it's just a really great romantic comedy, sort of.

#5 The Bucket List
A movie everyone has to watch at least once. Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson are amazing actors, so of course this film was going to be perfection. It's quite sad though, but also happy at the same time. If you get me?

#4 Definitely Maybe
I don't know why, but I absolutely love this movie.
A film about a dad, telling his daughter how he met her mother, with lots of twists along the way.
Ryan Reynolds is amazing in it, but there's also Rachel Weisz, Abigail Breslin, Elizabeth Banks & Isla Fisher, who are all fantastic actresses in my opinion.

#3 The Terminal
Oh Tom Hanks, how have you not been in this list already? Seriously, Tom Hanks is the go to guy for feel good films. At least his older ones. This movie is not exception. It's just such a funny, sweet, heartwarming film.

#2 UP
Honestly, if you watched this, and didn't cry, are you even human? Just kidding. But this movie is the sweetest animation I have seen in a long time, and definitely worth a watch.

* drum roll please*

#1 Little Miss Sunshine
It's about a family determined to get their young daughter to a beauty pageant. Her granddad teaches her everything 'she needs to know', but towards the end, the parents, and her brother decide it might be an awful idea for her to enter a beauty pageant. The ending though. Best. Ending. Ever.

Love Actually is so brilliant, I discovered it well after it was out on DVD but now I watch it way too often. The Shawshank Redemption and the Blind Side are also some of my favourites.

Great list!!
