1. Under the Tuscan Sun (2003)

If Diane Lane can pick up the pieces of her life and turn them into something beautiful so can you!

Whenever I need something to make me laugh Airplane! is my go to.  Always certain to give me a chuckle no matter how bad things have been going.


3. Footloose (1984)

Nothing says feel good like dancing, 80s music, and Kevin Bacon.  Will make you realize that even you can teach a whole entire town how to dance!


4. Bend It Like Beckham (2002)

Nothing’s better than watching a girl accomplish her dreams, get the guy, and definitely bend it like Beckham.


5. My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

Very funny! Even if you’re not Greek!

A Classic. What else can I say?


10. The Blind Side (2009)

Definitely a movie with ups and downs but with a good ending.


11. Letters to Juliet (2010)

A good heartwarming movie.  Goes to show you never know where life will take you when you discover a 40 year old letter in a wall.


12. School of Rock (2003)

If Jack Black’s and his class’s crazy antics don’t make you laugh I don’t know what will.


13. Matilda (1999)

This movie shows us that one day we will all find a place where we belong, just like Matilda.


14. The Birdcage (1996)

Robin Williams and Nathan Lane: the perfect combination to make you laugh.


15. Amelie (2001)

Nick Cage when he was young and Cher too?  Very enjoyable!


21. She’s the Man (2006)

Laughs galore!


22. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

Not only will make you laugh but will also make you feel.  A personal favorite of mine!  And also great if you love Shakespeare as it is an adaptation of “The Taming of the Shrew.”

Cameron Diaz? Jack Black? Kate Winslet? Jude Law? All together?? Say no more….
