Heck, just check out this list:

And those are all movies that came out in 2018 and 2019.
Well, see, there you go by using the word "lazy". Maybe we just don't want to check them out, and laziness has nothing to do with it.

You, of course, are entitled to your opinions, but I also have the right to not subject myself to what I perceive, rightly or wrongly, to be hostility and/or bullying, so you are now on my Ignore list.

I just remembered OCTOBER SKY -- true story about small town West Virginia boys from a coal town who dream of becoming rocket scientists -- excellent cast and acting. It came out in 1999. Based on the life of Homer Hickman.

Father of the Bride
Wedding Crashers
Dumb & Dumber

Those movies are easy to watch and funny, for the most part.

A few that spring to mind and hopefully they haven't been listed but if so, oh well:

Planes Trains and Automobiles- just a classically funny movie
Lady Bird (yes, I saw it was mentioned - just seconding it!)
The Long Yellow Trailer (Lucille Ball)
Postcards From the Edge - Who knew that Meryl Streep could belt out a song like that?
Schultze Gets the Blues (German/subtitles but well worth it!)
O Brother Where Art Thou - Honestly, the script and acting are fantastic
Burn After Reading- Lord have mercy, what a fun ride
The Lives of Others - German/Subtitled and it is sort of heavy material but may have THE best ending ever! You will be glowing when it's done!
Life Is Beautiful - another movie with a "heavy" theme but it will leave you feeling so good
Barefoot in the Park
What's Up Doc?
Amelie - French/subtitled but soooo worth it
The 8th Day - same as above - good luck finding it though

There are so many more but these are the ones that spring to my mind immediately.

In addition to the many movies already mentioned:

Apollo 11 (G)
Hidden Figures (PG)
Sully (PG-13)

I'd list more, but apparently most of the movies we watch are apparently R-rated or are not obviously "feel good," even if one feels better by the end of the movie (or were already listed).
