Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody has those days. Whether it’s one of those days (or weeks) where your car breaks down, some weird brown gunk gets in your pants from the subway, your sink gets clogged, you mess up at work, you just have to breathe and figure out what’s going to make your day end on a positive note. Sometimes you just need to jump on your couch or get under your comforter and munch on some chocolate or anything you love. Whether it’s a belly laugh, a smile, a chuckle, or a giggle, there’s nothing better than a movie that will lift your spirits.
