This one is difficult because there are so many movies that make me happy for some reason or another. Movies with uplifting scripts make me happy. Movies that are well made make me happy. And movies that make me laugh a bunch make me happy.
So for this category, I have to declare a 3 way tie between Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Cool Runnings, and Forrest Gump. There’s just no way that I could make pinpoint a single movie that makes me the happiest because all three of these movies make me downright jolly. Both Ferris and Forrest are movies that I will watch at anytime with anybody because I love them so much. Whenever either comes on television, I automatically switch to that channel and watch, even if the movie is half way through. It’s just impossible for there to be anything better on if one of those two movie also happens to be on. Lastly, if Cool Runnings doesn’t make you happy, then you officially have no soul. Nuff said!
