Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got an amazon gift card for Christmas from my parents and since I have been spending a lot of time in bed...I want some new DVD's. I like light-hearted, funny movies. I would love to know what everyone's favorite movies are. Any ideas?

Kassandra

P.S. Hope everyone had a great Christmas! :)

Oh! Hi Kassandra. :) This is an easy one.......I LOVE fluffy European or Euro-ish love stories. Some to try:

~The Holiday (coooooooziest English cottage and a swap with a FAB house in LA)

~A Good Year (oh! a vineyard in the south of France....... *sigh*)

~Love Actually

~Somethings Gotta Give (okay...maybe this is geared for OLDER single women but it's one of my faves)

~Under the Tuscan Sun (glorious)

~Chocolat (more love in France)

I own these and watch them repeatedly.........I am sure I can think of more!

Anything Julia Roberts--

Pretty Woman

Nottinghill (LOVE this one)

Runaway Bride-kinda cute

Also 2nd the Holiday, really liked that

-just saw Waitress with Keri Russell-LOVED that too

Toilet humor--Superbad was super funny, but NOT for kids-or people who don't like significant toilet humor (Borat was too much for me)

My favorite of ALL TIME--from the time I was about 8--Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea It's about 6 hours of fabulous!!! I've seen it so many times and it NEVER gets old. I can't wait for another year or 2 to watch it with my DD. Hope this helps!

The first one is definitely one of my favorites. It is a real gem. The other two are very good. The second is good if you normally do not watch anime.

Amelie

Princess Mononoke

Chocolat

If you want something a bit more serious: Black Book

Don't bother with Pirates of the Caribbean: End of the World. It was a real disappointment.

I second the nomination for Superbad. But only if you don't mind lots of curse words and crude humor.

I, Robot was great.

Loved Ratatouille (apologize if that's spelled incorrectly)

National Treasure

Another one which was neat and timeless for us Labyrinth with David Bowie. Fantasy like movie with the gnomes and gremlins but timeless.

We also like the Adam Sandler movies for a good laugh....I think I laugh the most at Big Daddy. It is my favorite Adam Sandler movie.

I watched Spanglish....but it was hard to see Adam Sandler not being funny. Good Movie though.

Here's a list of some light/entertaining/kept my interest movies

Amelie - great, cute!

Fever Pitch (if you want a light-hearted nothing heavy movie, it's cute - but predictable -- if you don't like Drew Barrymore, don't bother)

Breach (spy thriller - very good)

Sweet Home Alabama (cute love story)

Any newer animated movie (like Incredibles/Cars)

If you're going w/ Christmas theme --- Polar Express

Sideways (a little dry humor)

The Bourne Series (all three are edge of your seat good - but bloody!)

I would like to also vote for 10 things I hate about you! Very funny movie.

HA, yeah that's a great movie. I've seen it many times and it always makes me laugh.

Never Been Kissed is another good, lighthearted, funny movie.

Adventures in Babysitting and Summer School are two late 80's movies that are rather simple but funny and enjoyable and the kind of movies you can watch many times.

I enjoy listening to Ted Talks.  I found this one on dementia.  The take?  No success in developing drugs to stop dementia, so they are looking for ways to prevent it through diet!  Food can heal!   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f0WCb23KPEw Interesting!
