Everyone has a down day and we all have our own ways of coping. However, the ultimate way to cope is to get lost in a good movie. In fact, choosing a great comedy that will keep you in stitches is an effective solution for blue days, because you completely forget about what is bringing you down. To help you out, we have compiled the 10 absolute must-see movies for the next time you are sad.


1. 50 First Dates (2004)


This movie is typical Adam Sandler. It has some serious ROTFL moments throughout. In the movie, fun-loving Henry has his eye on cute Lucy. However, Lucy has a small problem: short-term memory loss. Every night when she goes to sleep, the previous day’s memory is erased and she wakes up believing it is the day she had the accident that caused her memory loss. Henry takes on the challenge to make someone who doesn’t remember him fall in love with him again every day. This cute story is heartening and fun, just what you need when you are down.


2. Patch Adams (1998)


In this comedy classic, legendary comedian Robin Williams is a medical student who takes a fun approach to the practice of medicine. His fun loving tendencies and clowning around cause others to try to thwart him but he perseveres bringing smiles to those he cares for. The jokes will make you laugh, but the triumph of individual dreams will make you smile.

    i think this list is great. with the exception of patch adams. while it is a fantastic movei with some good laughs, the tragedy of it seems to be more of an overbearing aspect than the light hearted pieces of comed scattered throughout. just my opinion. but still a great list.

      Agree, if I watched Patch Adams when i was already sad, I’d want to kill myself afterwards

    “Patch Adams”? That film isn’t funny. It’s an overly-sentimental piece of shit that makes kids and their parents cry like fucking morons. It is without a doubt one of the worst fucking films ever made! Fuck that shit!!!!!
