What's Buzzworthy? Comfort Movies

What's Buzzworthy? Comfort Movies

Watching challenging films is a worthy goal, but sometimes, I just want to relax with a movie I've seen a zillion times before. My comfort movies may not be the best or smartest movies in my collection, but they're perfect for curling up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and mentally reciting the lines I've heard a million times before.

So for this week's Buzzworthy challenge, I'm asking you to bookmark your favorite comfort movies, the most trustworthy films in your collection. I'm starting you off with Beautiful Girls, a movie I've seen more times than I could count on my fingers and toes put together. All through college, I toted around a VHS tape with a recording of it from my parents' TV; then, I upgraded — slightly — to a beat-up official version I bought from eBay. I finally got the movie on DVD a couple of years back, and I still pull it out every time I just want to watch something familiar. For good measure, I've tossed in a couple of my other standbys, Laurel Canyon and Drop Dead Gorgeous.

Just use BuzzSugar's cool bookmarking tool to find your favorite comfort movies from around the Web, tag them with the phrase comfort movies, and let me know why you love keeping them around. I'll post some readers' favorites here next week.

You can also now make a list of your picks. Here are mine:

I tried, but I guess I'm too old, I just can't figure out the bookmarking thing. So. My comfort movies include but are not limited too: 1. 10 Things I Hate About You. Can you say "Hemmingway was an abusive alcoholic misogynist who squandered half his life hanging around Picasso trying to nail his left-overs" five times fast? I can , thanks to Julia and Heath. (Love). 2. Braveheart 3. Love Actually (The husby and I watch it every christmas snuggled up together when the kids are in bed). 4. About A Boy. Can't get too much Hugh Grant. 5. The Cider House Rules. I love Tobey Maguire in this movie. I want to bring him to my house and make him a bowl of chicken noodle soup.
