True story about a New Zealander who wants to ride his Indian Motorcycle faster than anyone ever has. Anthony Hopkins, as the unassuming, uninformed protagonist.
You will cheer!
I loved this movie! Almost no one has even heard of it, but it is great. Very uplifting

"A Field of Dreams" from the 90's but every time I've been uplifted.

I don't do well with romance movies or simple plots and both of us love a good crime mystery. We do a lot of Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes and Inspector Poirot.

But any time "African Queen" is on we can't miss it. (And we love the other Bacall/Bogart movies also.)

"Raising Arizona," "The Princess Bride," and "Ferris Buehler's Day off always leave us laughing. And any of the Monty Python movies.

We just saw "A Man Called Ove" too and both of us liked it.

Little known but hilarious - "Waking Ned Devine."

"Babe."

Some of my favorites are already listed but I'll add Jon Favreau's 2014 "Chef", 2017's "Logan Lucky" and 2006 "Little Miss Sunshine".

Edit: 2091 "Legally Blond"; 2004 "13 going on 30"; 2014 "Bridesmaids"...
If you're willing to go back further than the 2000s, in addition to what's already been mentioned, I'd add "Mr. Holland's Opus".

The Straight Story (1999) (quest for reconciliation of ill / aging brother - via cross county journey on a riding lawnmower (could no longer drive a car)...)


Feel good... Tough to beat the documentary "North Platte Canteen: Where The Heartland Opened Its Heart ..." - A 10 minute whistle stop, with lasting memories and relationships.

This one means even more after venturing to Invercargill, NZ to see the display and also to Bonneville Speed Week last month. There are a LOT of old timers still there trying to beat their own speed records (for the last 70 yrs), fascinating legacies / tenacity / vintage iron.
