Top 10 Movies to Watch When You're @ Home Sick

Jun 15, 2010

A day off school is great - unless you're sick with a nasty cold or flu and have to stay inside, in bed! That's why we've come up with a list of the Top 10 Movies to Watch When You're @ Home Sick to watch when you're at home and sick - hope you feel better!


No. 10: The Little Mermaid

Disney's The Little Mermaid swam into just about everyone's heart when it was first released. Now it's become a classic animated film, and it's sure to lift your spirits when you've got the sniffles with it's catchy songs and message about true love.


No. 9: Star Wars

It may seem corny compared to some of the big-budget special effects films we see today, but there's something about the classic Star Wars movie that'll never go out of style. Plus, R2D2 is really cute!


No. 8: Big

If you've never seen this classic Tom Hanks movie, take the time to watch it the next time you find yourself at home sick! In the film, Tom plays a 13-year-old kid who wishes he could grow up faster. But when his wish comes true, he realizes being an adult isn't all it's cracked up to be!


No. 7: Shrek

Any of the Shrek movies are amazing to watch when you're in a vertical position and can't muster the energy to get up. If this friendly green ogre and his pals can't cheer you up (and coax a smile out of you), then nothing can!


No. 6: Cool Runnings

You may have heard the story of the Jamaican bobsled team that made their way to the Winter Olympic Games, but did you know there was a whole Disney movie about it? It's hilarious - a group of guys from a sunny island that compete in a sport that requires snow and ice!


No. 5: Finding Nemo

Another Disney classic, Finding Nemo will have you doubled over laughing - especially where Ellen Degeneres, who plays the often clueless Dory, is concerned! Ouch - hope that didn't hurt too much!


No. 4: Ever After: A Cinderella Story

In Ever After, Drew Barrymore plays Cinderella in a remake on the original story. It's pretty much the "real" take on the classic tale, and it's a guarantee to make you feel good, if not better!


No. 3: Labyrinth

This movie is so 1980s, it's funny! Watch as rockstar David Bowie has to wind his way through a maze filled with mythical creatures … we promise, it's better than it sounds!


No. 2: George of the Jungle

This live-action, family-oriented, action-adventure-comedy (phew!) is FULL of laughs! Brendan Fraser plays the main character, George, who was raised in the jungle by the animals … hilarious!


No. 1: The Princess Bride

This movie is a new classic, with a bit of something for everyone: magic, swordfights, true love and even kissing. Tons of big name actors appear in this film, including André the Giant and Billy Crystal. For even more fun, check out the book the movie was based on!

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
