Top Ten All-Time Favourite Comfort Movies


Hello and happy Top Ten Tuesday, guys! This week’s theme is a movie freebie, and since I’m a sucker for comfort movies, that’s what I’m going with this time. These are basically movies I watch when I’m feeling down because they always, always manage to cheer me up. Let’s get to it. 😊

1) Love Actually (2003)


WHAT I LOVE: I have a soft spot for films with an ensemble cast and this one is definitely one of the best. Even though it’s a bit sad and bittersweet in certain places, overall it’s just heartwarming. Plus the music is awesome. 🎶

2) How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)


WHAT I LOVE: Kate Hudson is so pretty in this one! When I was younger, I really wanted to work in a magazine too so this movie kind of appealed to me in that sense. And watching her try to wear Matthew McConaughey down while he tries to be with her is also hilarious. Definitely a twist on the old “pretend relationship” trope. 😍

3) Friends with Benefits (2011)


WHAT I LOVE: Mila Kunis is very attractive, and I love the progression of her relationship with Justin Timberlake in this film. It also appeals to that part of me that loves arranged marriages — I realise that they’re not married, but they did make an arrangement and slowly ~fall in love~ that way. 😉

4)The Proposal (2009)


WHAT I LOVE: This book also has a pretend relationship! Sandra Bullock is hilarious in this one, and it’s amazing to see her human-robot boss exterior slowly melt. 😂

5) Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)


WHAT I LOVE: Emma Stone, and that classic scene where she and Ryan Gosling reenact Dirty Dancing. I’m actually a bit on the fence about the whole “Steve Carrell’s wife cheated on him because he lost sight of himself as a man” theme but I loved everything else. 😁

6) Legally Blonde (2001)


WHAT I LOVE: Legally Blonde is actually a really feminist movie — Reese Witherspoon’s character, Elle, basically busts all stereotypes about being a sorority girl and a lawyer, and I freakin’ loved it. 💕

7) The Princess Diaries (2001)


WHAT I LOVE: This is Anne Hathaway at one of her earliest (and of her best, I think), and I love it to bits and pieces. Just the perfect YA film. Also, Julie Andrews. 😍

8) Pitch Perfect (2012) / Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)

Love You Awesome Nerds Pitch Perfect Anna Kendrick

WHAT I LOVE: The music! The girl power. And Anna Kendrick. Watching both these movies makes me want to belt out a song and break out in dance, and I’ve legit watched Pitch Perfect 2 probably twelve times. 🙈

9) The Holiday (2006)


WHAT I LOVE: It’s just the perfect holiday movie, pardon the pun. I love how different Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet are as women and how they each find their happiness. 💖

10) Father of the Bride (1991)


WHAT I LOVE: Kind of an oldie here but I LOVE Steve Martin and Diane Keaton in this one. It’s super, super sweet, and I actually tear up a bit watching it every time. Steve Martin’s character as a protective but also very, very loving father really takes the cake. 😭

What’s on your TTT this week? Leave me a link or let me know in the comments!

    • That’s so amazing! Yeah, I can see why that movie would inspire girls, though – it’s such a good portrayal of women and I like how it shows that women can be really “girly” (for lack of a better word) and also really smart. 😀

  1. My daughter and I enjoy Keira Knightly and Donald Sutherland as her Dad in “Pride and Prejudice.” The Matt Damon movie “We Bought a Zoo,” may seem sad but it actually rises above sorrow into the joy of living after one loses a wife and mother of your children. I am sorry of silly because I like Bridget Jones but haven’t seen the last one.
    I like the humor of The Princess Bride with so many wacky characters. My kids would re-enact the sword scene over and over, “My name is Indigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!”
