What is a good movie for a relaxing night at home?

Asked by N0name (180 points ) September 6th, 2011

Me and my girlfriend are spending a nice, calm evening at home tonight and we planned to watch a movie. What would you recommend? It does not have to be anything romantic really, just a good relaxing worth watching film.

Thank you

Nice easy movie you don’t have to think too hard on, My Girl 2. Don’t forget to butter the popcorn.

I’d go for something funny so watch Knocked up that’s pretty cute.

This one is relaxing, strangely engaging, and is really easy to follow.

Yoga by Ben Delegs. So relaxing I fell off the sofa! ;¬}

Woody Allen movies are great for relaxing. Watch Broadway Danny Rose, or Radio Days, or Annie Hall, or Manhattan. Terrific stuff.

For Love of the Game. If you are (or she is) a baseball fan then you should love it because it’s quite well done. If she wants (or you want) a romantic movie, then it has that, too. It’s a very good movie, starring Kevin Costner and Kelly Preston.

This is an un-answer, but just to add a little sparkle in the eye. My brother was courting his wife back in the days of drive-in movies and after they got married he said “oh good, now I get to SEE all the movies I heard last year.”

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. Really good movie!

Gorgeous women, gorgeous men, gorgeous British countryside: Sense and Sensibility (the one with Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson)

A bunch of nifty stories about love and relationships that are seemingly un-related until the end: Love Actually

Very sweet (but not silly in the way that American children’s movies can be) movie about a young boy in England who finds a one of a kind creature: The Waterhorse

An older movie from the early 1980’s (but don’t let that put you off) about a man and a woman who find each other by going through a time portal: Somewhere in Time (bonus points because the late Christopher Reeve, before he was Superman, stars in this movie)

Two super funny comedy romance (2 of my favorite movies of all time) movies starring slightly older, but well known actors: Something’s Gotta Give and It’s Complicated

If you’re a guy that’s in touch with his feminine side (although this movie is no girly movie in any sense of the word) and you have an appeciation for history and food, then I’d reccomend: Julie and Julia

Or if you’d like to see a very funny, zany movie from the early 1960’s (with one of the most marvelous dance scenes of all times done by Dick Shawn) then I’d pick: It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

A quirky romp through London by 2 American ex-pats, trying to figure out what the heck is going on or whether they’ve both gone mad: The Search for John Gissing (bonus, this movie has one of the niftiest songs at the end credits and an even niftier tap dancing sequence starring Severus Snape, himself, Alan Rickman!)

Another Jack Nicholson movie, maybe his best ever: As Good As It Gets.

Notes on a Scandal is very good if you can get hold of it.

I always love the original Night of the Living Dead for a nice Sunday evening movie. It’s especially good with a nice, buzzing beer or two. And I did that before I became an alcoholic. :)
I mean I know it’s a horror movie, but it’s old, so it’s kinda funny, plus it has that nice, warm and snuggly atmosphere you can only get from a zombie movie that deals with being trapped in an old farm house. Give it a chance!

Deep Throat, Star Wars of the Devil’s Rejects. :)

Ain’t never gonna argue with my main man Otis, that’s for sure. :)

Boy, the next thing that comes outta your mouth better be some brilliant Mark Twain shit, cuz’ it’s definitely getting chiseled on your tombstone.

@Symbeline I know what I know and I know I don’t like that nut sack. AND I am the devil, and I am here to do the devil’s work. Love those! :)
