“You're Practically Walking On Air After You See It” – 30 Comforting Films That Will Never Fail To Lighten Our Mood

We all have our go-to movies that we turn to whenever we’re down in the dumps or need some comfort. Whether it’s the nostalgia, the escapism, or the pure good vibes, they never fail to cheer us up.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

In a recent post, we shared people’s comfort movies, and there were SO many responses that we thought we’d share some more. So, here are 30 more movies people recommend watching when you’re down…

1. Mean Girls

Paramount Pictures

“I feel Mean Girls definitely deserves a place on this list.”


2. Shrek

DreamWorks Pictures

“When I’m feeling a bit down, there’s nothing that will bring me more comfort than curling up on the sofa and watching Shrek. It’s like being wrapped in a big warm blanket and being taken to a far away land.”


3. As Good As It Gets

Sony Pictures Releasing

“I don’t like rom-coms, but this film is just brilliant. The character development and Jack Nicholson’s performance is amazing. The ending fills me with so many warm fuzzies that I usually cry.”


4. Mamma Mia!

Universal Pictures

“It’s such a fucking delight and every woman in my family loves it. If I ever somehow won the lottery, but I was not allowed anything useful (frivolous purchases only), I would rent out a private island, hire actors, and recreate Mamma Mia!.”


5. Meet the Robinsons

Buena Vista Pictures Distribution

6. High School Musical

Disney Channel

“It will always be a go-to comfort movie for me. Cheesy, predictable, and musical – it’s perfect.”


7. Rocky

United Artists

“It’s a perfect feel-good movie. You’re practically walking on air after you see it.”


8. Harry and the Hendersons

Universal Pictures

“It’s one of my favourites. Yes, it’s very cheesy, but also very cute.”


9. How to Train Your Dragon

Paramount Pictures

“Particularly the first one! I saw it when it first came out and I’ve been obsessed ever since. Whenever I’m having feelings, I put it on and I’m quoting along right from ‘This is Berk.’ It never fails to make me feel better.”


10. The Birdcage

MGS/UA Distribution Co

“Robin Williams and Nathan Lane were so much fun together!”


“It’s physically impossible to get through that movie without having fits of uncontrollable laughter. Robin Williams and Nathan Lane play off of each other beautifully. Always makes me feel better.”


11. Galaxy Quest

DreamWorks Pictures

“It’s my go-to movie when I just need some joy in my life.”


12. Paul

Universal Pictures

“For fellow sci-fi fans, it’s hilarious and full of fun references to other sci-fi movies.”


13. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

Lionsgate Films

14. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Paramount Pictures

15. Commando

20th Century Studios

“It’s complete switch-your-brain-off fun and I’m never bored watching it.”


16. Interstellar

Warner Bros. Pictures

“It breaks you, but the final scenes with Coop and Murph, as well as the shots of Dr. Brand, never fail to warm me up.”


17. The Harry Potter films

Warner Bros. Pictures

18. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Paramount Pictures

“It was my stay home movie when I was little, and I still love it.”


19. The Parent Trap

Buena Vista Pictures Distribution

“It never fails to bring me comfort.”


“During particularly rough times in my life, I’d sometimes even finish the movie and then start it again. The grandfather, Chessy, and Martin, especially, always make me smile.”


20. Surf’s Up

Sony Pictures Releasing

“It’s so underrated. I could watch it over and over again.”


21. Hairspray

New Line Cinema

“During an especially tough period nine to 10 years ago, I had it alongside, Mamma Mia!, and Rock of Ages on a constant loop. I guess musical rom-coms bring me peace!”


22. The Mask of Zorro

“Everything about it makes me stupidly smile – the music, the action, the love story… And it has so many great actors!”


23. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

Warner Bros.

“I know a lot of people find this movie to be bad, but I love it!”


24. The Devil Wears Prada

“It’s my go-to for a rainy day or when I just don’t feel good. It always cheers me up.”


25. Thor: Ragnarok

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

26. The Goonies

Warner Bros.

“It’s my ultimate comfort movie! My mom took me to see it when I was 12. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen it, but definitely a shit ton.”


27. Rat Race

Paramount Pictures

“Whenever I’m feeling down, I put on my copy of Rat Race and it instantly lifts my spirits with all its wild antics.”


28. Pride & Prejudice


“The BBC Version with Colin Firth – it’s a long-time go-to for me.”


29. Back to the Future

Universal Pictures

“I would like to add Back to the Future to the list, it HAS to be here.”


30. Jurassic Park

Universal Pictures

“I’ve watched it more times than I can count and it never gets old for me. If I’m feeling down, I’ll pop it on and curl up with a duvet and just escape. I love it.”
