The best feel-good movies should leave you refreshed and full of joy—and that’s exactly what we all need at different points in our lives. When there’s just too much to take on, sometimes all you can do, really, is sink into your couch and watch the very best feel-good movies that Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and other streaming services have to offer. And if you want to add a White Claw slushie to the mix…hey, we’ve got a recipe for that.
If you’re feeling low, that is not the time to be watching tragedies or serial-killer thrillers. (But if those are your thing, we’ve got recs here and here.) This is a mood meant for teen classics (hello, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or Bring It On) or a newer Netflix romantic comedy like To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before—movies with sweet premises and low-stakes drama that boost your endorphins. As Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods would say, ”Endorphins make you happy!”
Here’s a whole list, below, of the best feel-good movies to add to your streaming queue.
