When I get sick, there are a few movies that I just love to watch. The A&E version of Pride and Prejudice is one of those movies. I swear, I think I’ve watched it three times in the past week. It’s just one of those movies that I can watch over and over. It’s classic and fairly close to the book. Who doesn’t love a good romance when sick?
Other movies I love to watch when I’m sick:
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (extended version, of course!)
The Princess Bride
The NeverEnding Story
Good Will Hunting
I think my criteria for movies when I’m sick is fairly simple. I think movies with a lot of dialog so I can listen to them while trying to fall asleep. I also like movies that I know well, almost by heart so that I don’t feel bad falling asleep during them.
What movies do you love in sickness and in health? I could use some new ones if this cold continues on. Thank God for DVD’s. I would have worn out a VHS version of Pride and Prejudice this week alone.
