Movies I Can't Not Watch

Shaun always laughs when he finds me watching the same movies over and over again. Somehow, I never tire of a solid romantic comedy and find myself getting sucked into certain films {way} beyond a normal number of viewings. When Lauren mentioned possibly writing about my favorite movies for What About Me Wednesday, I thought it was a great idea, but decided to give it a twist. These aren't necessarily my favorite movies of all time (though some of them are!), but ones that I simply can't say no to...

You've Got Mail

"Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan...they get mail and stuff..." {Friends}

This is probably my number one go-to romantic comedy and one that I cannot even count how many times I've seen over the years. I love so many things about it. First of all, Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks. Secondly, the fact that it is set and filmed in New York City at all iconic Upper West Side spots. It has some of my favorite quotes ever (including, "Don't you love New York in the Fall? it makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils, if I knew your name and address." --I love school supplies :)) It's funny. It's charming. It's sweet. It's whimsical. It's highly unrealistic, and that's why I love it. Ok, you can call me a dork now.

Father of the Bride

This movie just makes me happy. An all-star cast of Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, and Martin Short make this one a classic. Not to mention the timeless story of Dad seeing his little girl grow up and get married. It gets me every single time. I especially love Steve Martin's freak out in the grocery store, because I think it's something everyone can relate to! Not that my dad did that or anything, but there may have been some freaking out when I tied the knot.

The Proposal

This movie is so over the top ridiculous and I heart it. I've always loved Sandra Bullock and I totes have a thing for Ryan Reynolds (not to mention the fact that he's shirtless in multiple scenes). Oh and did I mention Betty White? I can never get enough of her. She is just so funny and adorable. So yep...anytime I flip on the TV and see this I just.can't.help.myself.

Toy Story 1, 2 or 3

Yup, when I see this on TV, it's happening. I'm getting my Disney watch on! I absolutely love these movies. I can't not watch. They make me laugh (and make me cry...every.single.time). These movies are just simply ingenius in their storylines, creativity and creative innovation. And I'm pretty sure this is the one film series on the list that Shaun will agree with me on :)

Holiday Movies

I can't wait to get into watching holiday movies this season! I have a rule to not watch any holiday movies or listen to holiday music until the night of Thanksgiving (when I force Shaun to listen to Christmas carols on our way home from my aunt's house) since it kicks off the season. I'm planning a full post about my must-see holiday movies that I simply can't go without every year, but just know that I can never say no to them.

So there you have it. Just a small sampling of movies I can't turn down. I wish they were more existential and made me seem smarter, but the reality is that I like watching mindless, happy movies that just make me feel good afterwards! I'm sure this could be a two part series, so if I think of others, I'll be sure to do a Part 2 post :) Have a great day!
