couch potato weather
Baby, it's cold outside: Stay in and watch one of our 10 favorite films
Sweater season has finally arrived, which means that we'd prefer to curl up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and a good film rather than brave the cold night air. Here are ten favorites we love to watch this time of year.
Love Story (1970)
Brimming with snowball fights, snow angels, wool coats and knit hats, this flick induces New England nostalgia. The story of struggling lovebirds (played by Ryan O'Neal and Ali McGraw) is a welcome tearjerker.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)
Thanks to Steve Martin and the late, great John Candy, the misery of holiday travel never seemed so funny.
When Harry Met Sally (1989)
There's nothing like New York City in the fall, and it serves as the perfect setting for Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan to teach us a little something about friendship and love.
Dangerous Liaisons (1988)
John Malkovich, Glenn Close and Michelle Pfeiffer captivate in this seductive and scandalous movie about bored and cunning French aristocrats who get what they deserve in the end.
It's impossible to tire of the sweet and silly tricks of the impish Amélie, played by actress Audrey Tautou, who sends her father's garden gnome off on a globetrotting adventure and finds love for herself in a photo booth.
Love Actually (2003)
'Tis the season to swoon over this romantic movie set right before Christmas in London — and we will never stop adoring handsome gents Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson and Colin Firth.
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins are absolutely incredible in this timeless film. The story of men who bond during imprisonment is as uplifting as it is intense.
Lord of The Rings (2001)
On a cold and rainy day, we can easily settle for sitting back and watching the whole epic trilogy.
Home Alone (1990)
Year after year, we're still on edge, waiting to see if the McCallisters make it home on time.
This inspirational movie based on the true story of Rudy Ruettiger, who was determined to play football for Notre Dame, reminds us to always fight for our dreams, no matter the obstacles.
