Best Feel-good Movie of 2009 - what is it?

Found 15th Nov 2009
really struggling to think of a good feelgood movie released this year.
.
I need to come up with one because I buy a DVd for the folk in the nursing home my Mum is in and all the old dears watch it on Christmas Day afternoon.

Last year was easy - Mama Mia

but I can't thisnk of an obvious choice for this year and they will all expect me to turn up with a DVD

Any ideas folks

Slumdog millionaire, rags to riches will have em weeping into there laps (rather than dribbling into there soup ;-) )

Yes Man - is awesome and funny

If they are older folk why not go for an older film they havent seen or havent seen in a while, Have they ever seen Stand By Me or this film

What about Seven Pounds, just saw it as a deal on here, sad but uplifting.

Ice Age 3

The Dark Knight

Public Enemies, Terminator, Wolverine, GI Joe

I enjoyed "The Boat That Rocked" some great uplifting moments.It helped me laugh when things were dire.

Burn After Reading is funny, not sure its nursing home material though...

Thanks folk...

Slumdog millionaire - Mums seen that and did not like it !!!

Yes Man - I can't stand Jim Carrey

The Dark Knight - not seen that - will have to think about that one !

Public Enemies, Terminator, Wolverine, GI Joe - Pensioner proof - maybe not

The Boat That Rocked - Now that could be a good idea

Burn After Reading is funny, not sure its nursing home material though... my thoughts as well !!!

Keep 'em coming

Cheers

Ice Age 3 - possible

you could get Casablanca, bound to be a shoe-in for nostalgia and sultry romance?

Harry Brown.

UP by Disney Pixar.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
