  • What's Your favorite feel good movie?

    I love Sister Act 2 for feeling good.

    I think a lot of us use distraction when in pain and I sure don't want to see some tear-jerker in that state. Let's get some recommendations together. What's your fav?

    My all time favorite is "Gone With the Wind". I also love almost every Bette Davis movie. (I love the old movies!)

    For newer stuff, "Meet the Parents" and the sequal were hilarious. I also thought "Big Daddy" was cute and funny. (Even though these are still a few years old.)

      prook of life
      where the heart is
      sweet home alabama (I don't own that yet)

                  I love both the Legally Blonde movies. Also Pretty Woman and the Notebook. I can watch the Notebook a gazillion times and never get tired of it. I also like the one with Sandra Bullock where shes an undercover FBI agent..cant think of the name right now.
                  Meds: Percocet PRN; Pyridium PRN. First symptoms Dec 2005. Diagnosed in March 2006.

                    I love "Bruce Almighty" and (this is a Christmas movie, but I love it anyway) "Scrooged" with Bill Murray. Those are my two favorite movies ever!

                      kadi said the princess bride, that is one of my favorites of all time, I love pretty woman, I love comedies too, Employee of the Month is a new one that is really funny. Grease never gets old, I can't think of anything more right now

                      I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
                      1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
                      2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
                      I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

                      I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

                          "(I love the old movies!)" (I can't get the quote functions to work!)

                          I LOVE old movies too. So Bette Davis fits in that category. Have you ever seen 'Now Voyager"? OMG that's a great movie. Jog my memory, what are some of your fav Bette movies?

                            hmm, it's working now...I LOVE Chicago too. I have the sound track so I go either way w/ it. When I am able to be up cleaning a bit it's a fun one to clean to LOL.

                            I like a very broad range of oldies and particularly love Cary Grant's older about Bringing Up Baby?:-) I've seen it a million times. I'm a major Jimmy Stewart fan too. What are some other Cary Grant films you like?

                              It's great to be reminded of ones that are so good, I own Beetleguise and the first Bridget Jones. And it's good to get other recommendations, I don't know a few people have listed.

                              Lately I'm sticking w/ light fare. I have a VERY broad range in movie tastes from Lars Von Trier films and Atom Egoyan to Frank Capra and musicals as silly as Oklahoma! I LOVE musicals. Fred and Ginger, Top Hat and Gay Divorcee, can't be beat.

                              I think one of the best films ever made was High Noon. I only saw it for the first time a few years ago and was blown away. I also LOVE children's movies, Little Mermaid, Totoro by Miyazaki.
