Best Comfort Movies For When You're in a Bad Mood

Buzz In: What's Your Comfort Movie?

You're sick, you just got fired, you just got dumped . . . or you're just so bummed out you don't want to leave the couch. And what's the best thing to do when you've exiled yourself to the sofa? Put on a movie, obviously. We learned from this week's episode of Glee that Mr. Schuester's comfort movie is Singin' in the Rain, and that reminded me that everyone has their go-to film when they're down.

Mine is my all-time favorite movie High Fidelity — the subject matter (relationships) isn't always relevant to what's bothering me, but I love putting it on and knowing every line of dialogue and every scene that's coming. What's yours? Is it something you find comfort in because it's familiar, like mine, or is it something that's more warm and fuzzy?

The Wedding Planner because I watched it repeatedly when I was told by my mom, when I was 10, that my favorite fifth grade teacher had just died in surgery. Besides, that all of the Ace Venture movies, The Wedding Singer, and Romeo Must Die. They all make me feel better in some way or another.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Clueless, or The Hudsucker Proxy. All about second chances in some way or another, which is always uplifting!

Steel Magnolias, without a doubt, works for me, no matter the situation.

I also love High Fidelity, except I sing along with the soundtrack. Second fav is Marie Antoinette. It's one of those movies you can put on and just not focus on what they're saying b/c it's so visually delicious and the soundtrack is amazing

Mine are Empire Records, Legally Blonde, and any of the Harry Potter movies. I think Empire Records wins though - I once watched it multiple times in one day after a particularly stomach-churning final exam.
