5 Movies I Watch When I Need a Pick-Me-Up


Do you ever have one of those days or weeks where you're just like "ugh" the entire time? My go-to in these scenarios is so rectify the situation, and my favorite way is to come home from work, pour myself a glass of wine, hop on the couch and watch a feel-good movie.

Here are the five I reach for every time i need a pick-me-up:


Clueless is actually my favorite movie ever—I can watch it anywhere, anytime, and it always leaves me with a smile on my face.

the sandlot

I remember being a kid watching The Sandlot, thinking "I'm going to marry Benny the Jet Rodriguez one day". While that isn't quite how my life turned out (lol), the movie still makes me laugh and take my mind off of just about anything.

crazy, stupid love

If you're looking for that one movie that will just turn any bad mood around, it's Crazy, Stupid Love. It has everything: family drama, Ryan Gosling, a funny plot, and, did I mention, Ryan Gosling?

family stone

I'm an only child, which means I dreamt of growing up in a huge family like in Family Stone. I usually watch this one around the holidays, but it's also good year-round.


Out of all of my favorite classics, this one is at the very top. I love Fast Times at Ridgemont High. From Spicoli ordering pizza to class to Linda Barrett's iconic bikini scene, it has something for everyone.
