Movies make life beautiful, you have to agree. But it also depends a lot on the movies you like to watch. If you watch the wrong movies, they can also mess up your life. Some movies stay in your mind for a long time and kind of stick with you. When you’re flipping through channels and your favourite movie comes on, you watch it even though you’ve seen it a hundred times before. Why? Because that movie makes you think of the good time you had the first time you watched it, it kind of takes you away. If you’re having a bad day, here are 10 of the hundreds of movies you should watch. Trust me, they’ll fit your mood as well as they do mine.
10. Hot Rod
First glance at this movie, which stars Andy Samberg and Isla Fisher, might make you think it’s a cheesy one, with its goofy teenage want tobes and their stupid stunts going wrong. But as you keep going, it will beat up your inner critic until you learn to love it. You’ll grow to love the weirdness of the main character, a want tobe stuntman on a mission who plays the lead, and the way he bonds with the people around him by being a bit stupid. If you want to see good-looking, tough-guy boys doing cool things, this movie might let you down. The boys in the movie show that you don’t have to be perfect to do something cool.
9. We Got a Zoo
It is a Perfect Family movie that is based on a true story. Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson play the main roles. The whole story is about friendship, love, loss, and zoo animals. If you like animals, this movie is a must-see, but even if you don’t, you should still give it a shot. You won’t be disappointed. It will show you that everything happens at the right time and that it’s never too late to change something you don’t like or accept something you can’t change. If you had to describe the movie in one word, it would be “heartwarming.”
8. Let’s be Cops
Even though this movie is rated PG, you should definitely see it. It’s about what your best friends make you do, like pretend to be a cop, which doesn’t feel wrong, at least for a little while. You’ll get chills and laugh out loud at the same time while watching this movie. Sometimes doing something wrong leads you to the right path, where you can be happy and satisfied for the rest of your life. Most of the time, breaking the law doesn’t lead to safety, but this movie had its own hilariously scary ways.
7. Little Miss Sunshine
The whole cast, including Greg Kinnear, Abigail Breslin, and Steve Carell, does a great job in this funny and surprisingly moving movie. Have you ever had an exciting trip with your family? In this movie, the Hoover family takes you on a road trip in a VW bus on their way to a pageant that their daughter hopes to get to safely. Along the way, they have a lot of quirks and problems that are very big.
6. An Internship
This movie is the best one to use the term “generation gap.” Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn play two interns at Google. They go into the world of young people and use some of their own old-school magic while enjoying some new-school experiences.
5. The Offer
I watched this movie a lot because Ryan Reynolds is one of my favourite actors. It’s a predictable romantic comedy, but Reynolds and Bullock make it come to life. The best part was how a person doesn’t know who he is or what he wants in life until a couple of strangers help him figure it out. Don’t get it? Just watch this movie already. You’re going to love it so much.
4. The movie Love Actually
There are nine interconnected stories that show what love is, and it’s not just the kind of love you see in romantic movies or read about in Shakespearean love stories. It’s about an actor’s love for his manager, a sister’s love for her brother, a friend’s love for his best friend, a mother’s love for her children, a stepfather’s love for his stepson, and many other kinds of love. Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln, and Colin Firth are among the actors who play these roles again. It’s a movie with a R rating and a good soundtrack.
This movie is a lot of fun, with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in the lead roles. Even though it’s a predictable comedy where the supporting characters are funnier than the main characters, it’s a sweet movie that will make you feel better with all the holiday cheer it offers. This movie really shows what it means to blend in and what it takes to really be there and fit in. I really want there to be another part to this movie.
This movie is a cute animated film with a catchy plot and an emotional soundtrack. Everything about the story, the characters, and how they look is just right. It’s a movie for kids, but it’s also kind of about being a parent (I cried during the climax). Basically, it’s driven by a series of strong messages that make everyone in the audience, of any age, think. It really sticks with you after you’ve seen it.
1. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Every movie on this list is a favourite and is different in its own way, so it was hard to choose which one to put at the top. Since it’s the third part of a trilogy (the fourth is coming out soon!) and based on a book, why not? If you can handle juvenile jokes, tortured siblings, and middle school worries that are done in a clever way, this is a great series to watch. The characters seem to have been born from the same family, and you can see yourself in either of their situations. It’s a lot of fun for the people watching. And you won’t just want to watch it once; you’ll want to watch it again and again because it’s light as a feather and tickles you in the tummy.
