What's a good movie to watch when you're sick and staying home from work?

Asked by occ (4176points) January 12th, 2010

Looking for a fun and engaging movie to watch while I’m home sick from work… definitely not anything that is depressing, dark, high-adrenaline, or requires you to be able to follow complicated plot twists. A good one would be something like “When Harry Met Sally” – except that I’ve seen that too many times. Even better if it’s a movie that streams live on netflix so I don’t have to leave the house to rent it.

I’ve always liked Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It just seems to make me feel better and want to get out and do things.
