There is nothing we want more in the fall than cozy movie nights! Curling up on your couch in your favorite sweats for a non-stop movie marathon seriously sounds like perfection. However, you can’t get started on your movie binge without a complete guide to our fall faves.
Take a look at our guide for a cozy night in, including everything from romantic comedies to fall holiday classics!
For the romantic
“Big Fish” is a whimsical tale of a small town dude with a massive appetite for adventure and even wilder stories. The film revolves around a journalist, Will Bloom, listening to his dying father Edward Bloom (Ewan McGregor) retell how he fell in love with Will’s late mother. The beautiful visuals and sappy love story will hit you right in the feels.
Um, duh. This whole movie follows the intertwined lives of various individuals in the throes of falling in love or getting heart-broken all during Christmas time. With relatable lines like, “I love you when you’re sick and look disgusting,” “Love Actually” is the champion of holiday warmth and romance.
Time to stir up the age-old debate; are you Team Edward or Team Jacob? Despite the cheesy lines (“Monsters are not a joke, Bella”) and even cheesier special effects *hello sparkle vampire* the Twilight saga is a classic for the killer soundtrack, beautiful on-set locations in Washington and of course, vampire and werewolf lore. To maximize the cheese-fest, watch “Twilight” through “Breaking Dawn Part 2.”
For the crybaby
Fair warning- “P.S. I Love You” is a guaranteed sob-fest. Holly Kennedy (Hilary Swank) is a newly widowed 30-year-old dealing with the aftermath of her husband’s death. Much to her surprise, her husband prepared messages to get her through her grief. Follow along and see Kennedy’s growth over a span of a year but make sure you have those tissues ready.
For the one counting the days until Christmas
Dr. Seuss’ classic tale of a monster with a heart two sizes too small got the live-action treatment back in 2000 and it has since become the definitive Christmas comedy. It doesn’t matter what month it is, but this movie will always keep you in stitches.
Let’s kick it old school with “Planes, Trains and Automobiles.” This holiday comedy follows Neal Page (Steve Martin) as he tries to get home for the holidays. Kick back and crack up as you watch Martin’s New York grump get stuck with a goofy shower curtain salesman after a snowstorm grounds their flight.
