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

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a favorite...I caught a live show of it 2 years back...one of the best shows I'd seen and wildly different from the movie (which was cool).

I really don't think of it as "feel-good" though.

How about Galaxy Quest? No matter how many times I see it, I still find it so delightfully charming and upbeat.
^Of course.

But I always had good results from watching any of the Star Trek TOS-films (including Generations)!

I don't ether, but it cheers me up. Mostly because of the music, though it does have a happy ending. Though that could change depending on interpretation. My ex thought 'Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless mind' (I may have that title a bit wrong) was a feelgood movie the way it ended, but my view on it was the complete opposite.

I wish I'd had the chance to see the live show of Hedwig though

A few people would disagree with me, but I'd put City Slickers on the list, as well as the Great Escape, which still managed to save itself with an upbeat ending.

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

My feelgood movies actually depend on my mood.

I'll go for classics like:
The Philadelphia Story
The Grass is Greener
That Touch of Mink
Ninotchka
Operation Petticoat

Or maybe some other times I'll go for stuff that will fill up my whole day:
The LotR Trilogy
The Star Wars Trilogies
The Jurassic Park Trilogy
The Matrix Trilogy
The Indiana Jones Quadrilogy

Then again I may be in the mood for some well-written comedy:
The First Wives Club
Steel Magnolias
Galaxyquest
Sister Act
A Fish Called Wanda
Victor/Victoria

...

I feel like I'm very lucky to have a lot to choose from.

My big pick-me-up movie would have to be Run, Faboy, Run. Very funny movie, and it kinda represents places that I've been in my running as well. Very good for days when I'm in a slump like I am now.
