Sometimes you're just in the mood for some classic feel-good films—after all, you can only watch so many murder docs before you need a few happy tears in your life. From Legally Blonde to Bridget Jones, we've got you covered with the 12 best feel-good movies to stream the next time you're in need of a little pick-me-up.

1. Legally Blonde (2001)

Because nothing is more feel-good than watching Elle Woods get the ultimate revenge on Warner Huntington III by absolutely killing it at law school. Plus, this film gave us the Bend and Snap, which works *every time.*

2. Coco (2017)

This Pixar film is an absolute must-see. Trust us. You'll have "Remember Me" stuck in your head for weeks, in the best way.

3. Love Actually (2003)

Technically a Christmas movie, this film can be watched all year long. Nine different stories somehow come together perfectly at the end, and there's an innumerable amount of British accents. What more could you ask for?


4. 13 Going On 30 (2004)

Jennifer Garner is adorable as ever in this time travel story featuring all the girl-power '80s music you could ever want. And we will always stan Mark Ruffalo.

5. Girls Trip (2017)

Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Regina Hall play four best friends legendarily known as the Flossy Posse (#goals). They go on a wild road trip to none other than New Orleans, and the events that transpire will have you planning your next all-female vacay ASAP.

6. Clueless (1995)

Not only can you drool over Cher's rotating closet, you can also stare at the ageless Paul Rudd who somehow looked exactly the same in 1995 as he does in 2019.

7. 50 First Dates (2004)

Adam Sandler plays a classic bad-boy-turned-boyfriend in this 2004 film that raised women's expectations for men everywhere. Henry (Sandler) falls in love with Lucy (Drew Barrymore), but because of her short-term memory loss, he has to convince her to fall in love with him all over again...every single day. I can't even get a text back.

8. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

An absolute classic that will have you filled with high school hookey nostalgia. Plus, a 1980s Matthew Broderick will be forever timeless.

9. Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)

Renee Zellweger plays Bridget Jones, our single, 32-year-old, foul-mouthed icon. Plus, once you've finished the original, there are two sequels to add to your feel-good marathon.

10. The Parent Trap (1998)

Ignore the fact that it takes Annie and Hallie an entire summer to realize they have the exact same Lindsay Lohan face, and just enjoy Dennis Quaid in all his dad-bod glory.

11. Someone Great (2019)

Netflix's new original film starring Gina Rodriguez, Brittany Snow, and DeWanda Wise is a new kind of rom-com: one where the romance part involves self-love and friendship, rather than a significant other. Gather your BFFs and prepare to laugh, cry, and sing along to some Lizzo.

12. The Princess Diaries (2001)


Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews are an absolute dream team, and "Stupid Cupid" is an all-time bop. If only Genovia were real. Sigh.
