One of the best ways to spend a cozy fall day is curled up on the couch with a good comfort movie. Watching a movie you’ve seen and loved many times before is a great way to unwind after a long day filled with homework and classes. As we emerge from midterms season, now is a great time to take a break. Here’s a list of my five favorite comfort movies:

The Parent Trap

This has been my favorite movie for as long as I can remember. I’m not quite sure when I decided I loved it so much, but at this point I basically have the entire script memorized, and I’ll never get tired of watching it. 

Parent Trap Lindsay Lohan
Walt Disney Pictures
La La Land

I fell in love with this movie the moment I saw it in theaters on my 16th birthday. It’s poised to become a classic, and it creates a timelessness within its modern story. The costumes, choreography, and music make you fall in love with every part of this movie, and the soundtrack is great to listen to while doing homework. 

Singin’ in the Rain

The oldest classic on this list, I fell in love with this one when my dad first showed it to me when I was pretty young. This movie finds the perfect balance between comedy and romance, and the love story will have you rooting for the pair until the very end. 

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

I wasn’t expecting this to become a favorite movie of mine when I first watched it, but there’s something so wholesome about its love story that I find myself coming back to watch it time and time again. 

The Princess Bride

I first watched this movie at a friend’s birthday party in middle school, and we spent the whole time laughing. The witty jokes that fill this movie are timeless and incredibly quotable, and its romantic storyline never gets old. 

If you’re looking for a new comfort movie this fall, try one of these five. Even if you’ve seen it a million times before, you can never go wrong with an old favorite.
