What Movies Are on Your Most Watched List?

Okay people, I don't have a post on making New Year's resolutions or having a meanigful word for the year, but I have been thinking a lot about movies.

You see, I have been laying in bed since January third, because I have this cold (that I hear so many other people have had this first week of the new year), and today, after lounging between my white flannel sheets most of the day, I finally feel better and have a bit of energy to write a post.

For the last several days as I sprawl across the couch or lounge on my bed, I have been watching my favorite movies. You know, those feel-good movies that you own and watch over and over again. Those movies you watch when your hubby is out with his friends, or when you are folding clothes, or late Saturday afternoon when you need a break from carting the kids from one soccer game to the next, or when you are sick and in control of the controller! The movie that is a no brainer, you can watch any ol' time of the day - just to be entertained or to feel better.

So here is my list:
  • When Harry Meets Sally (of course this is on the top of my list because frankly I have watched this movie so many times and it is STILL my very, very favorite-ist of all!)
  • Love Actually (can you believe how these British actors pop up everywhere in all the movies that need a British actor - like is there anyone else in England that can act or what!)
  • 13 Going on 30 (Mark Ruffalo rocks)
  • Marley and Me (already wrote a post on that one)
  • While You Were Sleeping (watched that one in bed this morning)
  • Serendipity (John Cusack is the Man)
  • Return to Me (I know, silly, silly, but good mindless entertainment)
  • Dan in Real Life
Recently added to the list:
  • The Proposal
  • Just Like Heaven
  • The Family Man
Add if I'm in the mood for it:
  • The Thomas Crown Affair (don't you just love Rene Russo's hair - and hey, she is older than me in this movie and she can look like that! There might be hope just yet!)

What are the movies you can watch repeatedly throughout the year?


  1. I have a couple that are really silly (they make me laugh every time!) but I can watch over and over and they bring back memories of when my older kids were little:

    1.The Goonies
    2.Uncle Buck -my family LOVES this movie!!

    2. While you were Sleeping
    3. Pride and Prejudice (Kiera Knightly version)
    4. The Sound of Music
    5. Chocolat
    6. Only You
    7. The Young Victoria
    8. The Holiday
    9. New in Town
    10. Legally Blond

    Adventure movies:

    1. Lord of the Rings trilogy

    Hope you feel better soon, Sharon! Maybe you needed a few days to just rest and be! Hugs to you....Suzy

  2. Suzy~that is a great list! Thanks for sharing! Although, there were a few I am not familiar with such as The Goonies, Uncle Buck, & Only You. I will have to look them up. Besides those movies, I have never seen The Young Victoria & New in Town. I will have to rent those. I also forgot about The Holiday. That is simple entertainment. Thanks for sharing your list - I know what to get next time it rains!

  3. Kevin and I both really like Cinderella Man (Russel Crowe & Renee Zellwegger, boxing movie but romantic drama) and Gladiator (RC again!)

    We just watched the Tourist with Angelina Jolie & Johnny Depp and it was the most perfect movie (action, mystery, romance, comedy) and pretty clean! We also really enjoyed the movie RED with Bruce Willis and Shades of Ray is a funny romantic comedy (independent though). There's a lot of good ones!
