When I’m sick (like now), nothing beats a light and entertaining movie. Besides, I can’t read, can’t work, can’t do much of anything. Sometimes I just lie on the sofa, eyes closed, movie on. Here are some of my favorites to watch when I’m feeling under the weather.
Be sure you scroll to the end to check out the foreign films. Romantics Anonymous (Les Émotifs Anonymes) is one of my very favorites.
About a Boy
Benny and Joon
Bridget Jones’s Diary
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
The Emperor’s New Clothes
Such an underrated movie. I can’t even find a trailer for it. But do check it out. This 2001 film, adapted from the novel The Death of Napoleon, is funny, charming, and completely unpredictable. An alternative view of Napoleon’s life after being exiled.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Four Weddings and a Funeral
An Idea Husband
The Importance of Being Ernest
It’s a Wonderful Life
Okay, so it’s not Christmas. Who cares? This movie will remind you that being sick ain’t but nothing.
Little Miss Sunshine
Lost in Translation
Pride and Prejudice
Be sure you find the 1995 version and run away from the more recent one with Keira Knightely.
