I think it's safe to say some of us are feeling seriously bummed right about now. Nearing month two of social distancing can do that to you. I have definitely found myself wanting to watch more upbeat, and/or sappy and musical features to help lift my mood. Add some popcorn and brownies to the mix with a cozy blanket to top and I've got all the key ingredients needed to help brighten even the gloomiest of days - or at least that's my hope.


Some are perfect for family couch time and others are more for that couple of hours of alone time you finally get when everyone else is asleep...

1. Sound Of Music
I just watched this for the second time in a month and honestly it did wonders. Sure, it's nearly 3 hours long but there is no way you can resist singing along to every.single.musical number throughout the movie. It's visually appealing, has a great story, and Julie Andrews/Christopher Plummer.  Stream it on Disney+.

2. Mary Poppins + Mary Poppins Returns
The childhood favorite that instantly makes you feel better about everything. Watch the original and then follow up with Mary Poppins Returns with Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel Miranda. So different and yet so freaking good. Stream Mary Poppins on Disney+ and Mary Poppins Returns on Netflix.

3. 10 Things I Hate About You
This movie is so crazy nostalgic for me. 10 Things I Hate About You is a hilarious, very 90's adaptation of Taming Of The Shrew featuring a young Heath Ledger, Julia Styles and Joseph Gordon Levitt. It is everrrrything. Stream it on Disney+. 

4. Big Fish
My favorite Tim Burton Movie is Big Fish. It follows Edward Bloom's incredible + fantastical tales of his life experiences. It's beautifully shot and written, and the end fills your heart with so much warmth. Stream it on Hulu. 

5. The Wedding Date
Debra Messing, Dermot Murolney and a Michael Buble Soundtrack. Need I say more? Stream it on Hulu. 

6. The Swiss Family Robinson
If there was ever a time to want to be shipwrecked on an abandoned island - it would be now. The 1960's adaptation makes me want to hop on a boat, find a remote island, build a treehouse, befriend some animals and  uh, fight pirates? Stream it on Disney+. 

7. Never Been Kissed
Drew Barrymore Movies are always a win. Josie is a journalist and goes back to relive high school but is like, more popular and cool this time? Stream it on Disney+.

8. When Harry Met Sally 
The Iconic New York, Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal Movie that makes you laugh, cry and ask yourself why did this take so long to figure out. Stream it on Amazon Prime,  iTunes and Youtube. 

9. Notting Hill
I mean, isn't all of our childhood desires for us to fall in love with a movie star? Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts made it a reality... Stream it on Hulu.

10. Mamma Mia + Mamma Mia Here We Go Again
Well, we watch these two A LOT. Not voluntarily every time because our two year old is completely obsessed and never stops singing the songs but hey, it is good stuff. Sing along with Meryl, Amanda and Pierce in Mamma Mia and then sing along again in Mamma Mia Here We Go Again with Lily, Amanda and the entire ensemble for a look back at the origin story for Mamma Mia. Stream them both on Hulu. 

11. La La Land 
Did Ryan Gosling save Jazz? Who really knows? What I do know is that it's colorful, catchy and definitely made me cry happy tears at the end. Yes, you will have the songs stuck in your head for weeks but I say it's worth it. Stream it on IMDB's App.

12. Funny Face
I do love me a Fred Astaire movie! And this one just so happens to also star the iconic Audrey Hepburn who appears as the "Funny Faced" bookstore employee who turned successful model. Stream it on Prime.

13. 50 First Dates
Hawaii, Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore with short-term memory loss. It's weird, hilarious and honestly makes you smile. Stream it on VUDU

14. Ella Enchanted
A Fantasy, romcom musical with Anne Hathaway? Sign me up. Stream it on VUDU. 

15. Mrs. Doubtfire
Chances are you've already seen Robin Williams dressed up as a woman to 'secretly' take care of his kids - but honestly it's still hilarious after all of these years. Stream it on Hulu.

16. The Birdcage
When Jackie from Living After Midnite tells you to add this to your list, you do it! Another Robin Williams character that dazzles, especially with Nathan Lane playing opposite. It's a laugh so hard you cried kind of movie. Stream it on VUDU and Youtube free.
