Best Feel Good Movies
You’ve had a rough day. You’ve had a rough week. You had a terrible year (hi, 2020!). And maybe you’re not in the mood to watch “the best” movies. There’s nothing wrong with Citizen Kane, Vertigo, or 2001: A Space Odyssey, but if you’re feeling down in the dumps, it’s probably not the movie you want to watch.
You need feel good movies. You require uplifting films. You desire the best feel-good films. In light of this, we have humbly produced a list of the 18 finest feel-good films to improve your mood. These are not simply mindless, cheery pictures.
1). The Week of (2018)
In this comedy, Chris Rock and Adam Sandler play two diametrically opposed family patriarchs who must endeavour to get along for the forthcoming wedding of their children, even if it means spending an entire week together.
2). Eurovision Song Contest: the Story of Fire Saga (2020)
In this comedy, Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams play two Icelandic singers, Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir, who vie to represent their country in the Eurovision Song Contest.
3). The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018)
Based on the 2008 historical novel of the same name by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.
A London author (Lily James) forms relationships with the citizens of Guernsey Island in the aftermath of World War II, and is inspired by the book club they founded during the German occupation.
4). Always Be My Maybe (2019)
This romantic comedy, featuring stand-up comedian Ali Wong and Fresh Off the Boat’s Randall Park (along with a slew of other known faces), follows childhood sweethearts who reunite 15 years after a tragic breakup and find themselves in vastly different financial positions.
5). Hail,caesar! (2015)
This Coen Brothers comedy is set in the early 1950s and features a star-studded cast. It follows an overworked movie producer as he juggles complaints from a director, a synchronised swimmer, a dancing sailor, and a singing cowboy, all while trying to find a kidnapped and held-for-ransom movie star.
6). Like Father (2018)
When an ambitious CEO (Kristen Bell) is dumped at the altar, she decides to take her Caribbean honeymoon trip with her father (Kelsey Grammer), who abandoned the family years before.
7). To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018)
Based on the best-selling young adult novel of the same name, this romantic comedy follows the story of Lara Jean (Lana Condor), a shy high school student who discovers that her secret hoard of love letters has been sent to each of her five crushes.
8). Aladdin (1992)
When in need of a little emotional boost, it’s difficult to go wrong with a Disney picture. This 1992 classic about sand, magic, and a street rat’s ascent to fame is without a doubt one of the studio’s finest.
9). The Princess Bride (1987)
This film’s framing technique is actually an elderly guy reading the upcoming story to his grandson in an effort to make him feel better.
I’ve never read the original work by William Goldman, but I wouldn’t hesitate to show this to a child or an adult who was feeling under the weather.
10). An American Tail (1986)
You could be forgiven for assuming that this animated story, which begins with an antisemitic attack, a difficult ocean journey, and the separation of a family of immigrants destined for the United States, is not exactly “feel good.”
In the early act of this underappreciated classic, however, the grim stakes are set, making the film’s ending all the more satisfying.
11). Clueless (1995)
Let’s be honest, Clueless is the Jeff Goldblum of 1990s films. Clueless is a breezy comedy with some knowing sting thanks to Amy Heckerling’s sharp-toothed scripting and such a pure-hearted core that it is as impossible to detest as its perky protagonist.
12). School of Rock (2003)
The real feel-good title in Linklater’s filmography is the blindingly optimistic and contagious School of Rock, which is often overlooked in favour of the more glittering and prestigious jewels in his crown (looking at you, Boyhood and Dazed and Confused).
The film follows a music-obsessed man-child named Dewey who snags a substitute teaching job from his goody-two-shoes best friend in order to make a fast money. Jack Black is at his most endearingly manic throughout the film.
13). Singin’ in the Rain (1952)
Golden Age Hollywood is always a goldmine of feel-good films. Classic films relied solely on plot and character, resulting in a significantly more intimate viewing experience.
Singin’ in the Rain is an amazing example, and as one of the greatest musicals of all time, it is a wonderful feel-good film choice—especially for cinema buffs.
14). Uncorked (2020)
This father-son story, directed by Insecure executive producer and showrunner Prentice Penny and partially based on his own experiences, follows a young man who desires to become a master sommelier, despite his father’s expectation that he will eventually take over the family barbecue business.
15). What a Girl Wants (2003)
In this film, Amanda Bynes plays a regular American girl who wishes to reconcile with her father, only to discover that he is running for Prime Minister of England. And, while she develops a bond with her father, she falls in love with a charming British musician.
16). The Prom (2020)
This Ryan Murphy-directed Broadway musical adaptation stars Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, and Andrew Rannells, among others, and follows four burnt-out Broadway has-beens who decide to band together to improve their reputations and support a worthy cause: a small-town prom in Indiana that was cancelled because a girl wanted to bring her girlfriend as her date.
17). Good Sam (2019)
Tiya Sircar (The Good Place) plays as Kate Bradley, a New York City TV news reporter who tries to track down an unknown good Samaritan known as “Good Sam,” who leaves $100k in cash on seemingly random people’s doorsteps.
18). Otherhood (2019)
This comedy, directed by Cindy Chupack, is based on William Sutcliffe’s novel Whatever Makes You Happy, and tells the story of three suburban parents (played by Patricia Arquette, Angela Bassett, and Felicity Huffman) who turn up uninvited in the New York City apartments of their adult sons.
