One of the best movies ever. If you haven't seen this, you are a philistine.
Oh, yes! Very good suggestion. Sometimes I watch this when I'm feeling blue for a little bit of life-affirming cheer. It's great to watch it side-by-side with Gene Kelly's dance just to see how perfectly they've reproduced it.

This might be a bit 4-years-ago, but I find it impossible to watch any episode of Wonderfalls without a smile plastered across my face.

Watch Bridge to Terabithia. But, remember to eject the film when Ms. Edmunds drops Jess off at home (the film is inspirational before that point, and needlessly depressing after that point).

Amelie is a wonderful little movie, although the last time I saw it was with the woman who proceeded to dump me a couple of weeks later.

So, um, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, then? Jean Arthur's a cutie.

36 posts in, and still no mention of Local Hero? OK, I'll mention it as my personal favourite feel-good movie.

Re: I need to watch a "feel good" movie.. what would you suggest?

A few picked from my own collection:

- Back to the Future
- Beverly Hills Cop
- Bring It On
- Die Hard
- Ferris Bueller
- A Knight's Tale
- Last Samurai
- Mary Poppins
- Secret of My Success
- Star Wars (any of them really)
- Top Gun
- Trading Places
- Weekend at Bernies
- What Women Want

OK, well, some odd choices there maybe, but they make ME feel good about the world.

Re: I need to watch a "feel good" movie.. what would you suggest?

Some really great choices here.

Crazy People - always makes me belly laugh, especially the "hello" guy and his "hello song".
Some Like it Hot - what a script, what a cast.
That Touch of Mink - Cary Grant trying to get Doris Day into bed and all the mishaps that ensue - what's not to like?
Calamity Jane - fantastic songs and gags.
Crocodile Dundee - the sequel is just as good, too.
What About Bob - Bill Murray at his funniest.
Murder by Death - Maybe the title isn't so inviting, but the situations are brilliant!
Victor/Victoria - one of the classics, surely.
Flight of the Navigator - I've watched this so many times and it never gets old.
Galaxy Quest

Even a really bad day would seem brighter after one of those.

EDIT: There are just so many, I keep adding!

Mines changes depending on my mood. I have a soft spot for School of Rock at the moment, and although it's not a feelgood movie I always seem to watch Hedwig when I'm feeling down.

Oh my god! Someone else, besides me and mrcoaster that is, actually likes "Hedwig"? Wow!

And this has turned into a fantastic list. I would like to add "The Absentminded Professor", "Swiss Family Robinson" and "Pleasantville".

This is not a feel good movie at all but it certainly made me feel good in the sense that it made me laugh non-stop. It's called Les Valseuses and it's a classic among the French. The English translation of the title ended up being Going Places however the title actually means "The Bollocks".
