Top 10 Movies to Cozy Up With
1. Love Actually
Whether you're in the mood for a Christmas classic, or simply just a great movie that will bring you both laughter and tears, Love Actually is definitely for you.
2. The Parent Trap
When I think about movies that absolutely never get old, The Parent Trap (Lindsay Lohan edition, of course) is the top of the list. Lohan playing twins attempting to reunite their parents makes for the perfect remedy for a cold or rainy day.
3. Forrest Gump
This Tom Hanks classic is never a bad idea, and it is impossible to get sick of Forrest's iconic "life is like a box of chocolates" line.
There is always room for a classic Disney cartoon movie night, and Hercules is by far one of the best Mouse House productions.
5. Good Will Hunting
If you're in need of a good cry, the "it's not your fault" scene will do the trick. Not to mention that this movie features one of the late, great Robin Williams' best performances.
6. The Blind Side
Nothing puts me in a good mood or makes me feel empowered like watching Sandra Bullock play superwoman Leigh Anne Tuohy.
7. Bend it Like Beckham
Vintage Keira Knightley and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are the perfect combination to make this story about cultures clashing, soccer and family your new favorite movie.
8. Dirty Dancing
The movie that inspired Ryan Gosling's lift in Crazy Stupid Love is a no-brainer when a cozy night in is necessary. Plus, you get to melt as Patrick Swayze smolders.
9. Little Miss Sunshine
Considering little Abigail Breslin was nominated for an Oscar for her performance as aspiring beauty queen Olive, "Little Miss Sunshine" is entirely deserving of the critical acclaim that the feel-good, uplifting movie about the love in a dysfunctional family garnered.
10. The Help
Regardless of whether or not you have read the book, The Help is a beautiful movie about breaking down racism and doing the right thing no matter the cost that is sure to warm your heart.
