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

24
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...

really I thought that was the wost film I ever saw there was no story and rather stupid and pointless.
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
Night at the Museum 2
yep

Up could be an option

or the boat that rocked

maybe get both just in case

thanks guys

8.2/10 on IMDB

Bizarre how OP wanted best feel good film of the year and most are pre-2009.
Actually as it is for xmas day, consider this one if you cant get hold of 500 days (recent release)

]A Christmas Story
