27 dresses always makes me smile πŸ™‚

Ace Ventura or anything with Jim Carey

I would suggest happy movies- maybe some kids flicks like the Goonies etc

I hope your mum feels better soon πŸ™‚

I second Disney Films

Also, 10 Things I Hate About You is probably my favorite easy movie

Can you be more specific about why she couldn’t watch Hugo?

 

The Holiday is one I love to watch…Love Actually…I agree with others about Disney and Pixar.  

Mighty Ducks is always awesome but it might be too juvenile for her.  Maybe movies from when she was a teenager?

I love classic comedies like Naked Gun, Airplane, Blazing Saddles, etc. Basically anything with Leslie Neilsen or made by Mel Brooks. I think she’d enjoy those.

I just watched My Mom’s New Boyfriend bc it was on tv the other day. Wasn’t expecting much from it, but it had a little of action, some romance, some comedy. And everyone is happy at the end.

@kaetia:  Sounds like you need a break can you and your Fiance go somewhere even if it’s just an hour for coffee.

I really feel for you. I have had a few dark days (months) myself. I really get the need for easy films. But thankfully a year later I’m on the other side.

Like I said before lots of love to you and all us bees will gladly help with your planning.

@kaetia:  In terms of Hugo (sorry no idea how to do the quote thingy) she found it too complicated because it’s got flashbacks in it. She kept asking why people kept disappearing πŸ™

I really hate to say this, but this is not a sign of depression. She needs to go to the doctor and talk to them about this–this could be a sign of something much more serious.

@kaetia:  Ugh, that’s awful. I really hate depression medications and how it’s just a guessing game to find the right one(s) in the right dosages. Fiance stopped taking his years ago because not finding the right one(s) was making him feel worse, and what he was on was making him numb to everything. He said he hated not having emotions anymore. Give your mum a big hug. 

Let’s see if I can remember any of my favorite non sci-fi/fantasy (as those tend to be pretty involvd) movies off the top of my head:
– Waking Ned Devine
– Love Actually
– Bride & Prejudice 
– Easy A
– Despicable Me
– Monsters Inc.

I’ll probably come back and add more later when I get home and can look through my DVDs.

The Princess Bride is one of my go-to movies when I’m need something easy and uncomplicated.

I’m sorry she’s going through this right now.  I’ll see if I can find anything else that wouldn’t be to taxing for her to watch.
