I'm Going Against The Mainstream, Here

But what else is new?

Do you all remember the show Mad About You with Paul and Jamie Buckman?

Here's a quick refresher for you.

I enjoyed this show. There was one episode in particular that I've been thinking about lately.  They were both having terrible days and  kept trying to get to "The Feel Good Movie of the Year" and were thwarted at every turn until and act of kindness by the film projectionist at the very end of the show saved the day.

Right now, I really want there to be a Feel Good Movie of the Year. Everything that has come out recently seems to be either post apocalyptic or base humor that flaunts bodily functions and/or tears others down.

Are there any feel good movies out now? One that is light and funny and even, dare I say it, a little uplifting?

Help a gnome out. What do you recommend for lighter fare in the movie realm?

You make a good point. I can't remember the last feel good movie that I watched.

Every preview I see is about the day after doomsday. Sigh. I must be getting old.

Hmmm, you may be right that there's a lull. We were browsing at a Redbox last night, and I don't recall seeing any feel-good titles there either. Is it time for a re-run of one of your favorite oldies?

Ava Quinn said...

Sigh. I tried, Delynn. I put in Top Hat, but my VHS tape is almost worn out. I couldn't finish watching it.

I'll have to think of something else.

Can't think of any current feel-good flicks. But two 80s movies that immediately come to mind are Baby Boom and Moonstruck. :-D

Yeah! Diane Keaton and Cher. Nice! I'll have to go in search.
