Movies that put me in a good mood

Today it's a very grey day outside, that kind of day which puts you into a melancholic mood of coldness.
Do you find that your mood matches the weather as well?
On days like this I prefere to stay at home, watching a nice movie, having a glass of wine, being wrapped up in blanket, eating chocolate or drinking a cup of hot coffee (chocolate).

I already mentioned in my blog romantic Christmas movies, the 10 best sitcom Christmas episodes or Hallmark Christmas movies. But this time I decided to share with you some of my favorite movies that put me in a good mood. 
What film always puts you in a good mood?

Marry Me (2010)
( Two part mini movie series )
Starring: Lucy Liu, Bobby Cannavale, Steven Pasquale and Enrique Murciano  

Marry Me is the story of Rae Carter, a former artist now working as a social worker, who has always believed in the fairy-tale. But when her long-term relationship with boyfriend, Adam, falls apart, her beliefs are shaken. 
Despite her hesitance, Rae begins seeing a handsome man named Luke and quickly falls for him. The feeling is mutual, it appears, when Luke asks her to marry him after only a short time. But just as Rae begins to get comfortable with the idea of Luke as her Prince Charming, Adam re-enters her life and begs Rae to marry him. And as if that wasn't enough, already torn between Luke and Adam, Rae finds herself being proposed to a third time by Harry, a rich friend of Luke's, who is smitten with her. 
Now, Rae must decide who she wants to be with. Because if she doesn't, she risks never finding her Happily Ever After. 

Three to Tango  (1999)
Starring: Matthew Perry, Neve Campbell, Dylan McDermott and Oliver Platt

A rich businessman, Dylan McDermott, mistakenly believes that Matthew Perry, who is bidding on a $90 million restoration contract, is gay and asks him to keep tabs on his mistress, Neve Campbell. Perry, who is not gay, falls for Neve in a big way but she thinks he's gay. 
I don't remember hearing about this movie when it came out. Later I have read so many critics give this movie bad reviews, but I loved it.
This is a must see movie.


Only You (1994)
Starring Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr, Bonnie Hunt and Billy Zane

Faith believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other. From the Ouija board, she has found the name of her missing half and it is D-A-M-O-N B-R-A-D-L-E-Y. 
Later, at the carnival, the fortune teller sees the name Damon Bradley in the Crystal Ball and Faith is convinced. She is told that "You make your own destiny,...don't wait for it to come to you". 
14 years later, she is engaged to a dull podiatrist and plans to marry until she gets a call from one of his classmates who is on his way to Venice, Italy. The classmate is Damon Bradley. Rushing to the airport to see her soul-mate, she misses him and the plane, but decides, then and there, to go after him. So Faith and her sister-in-law Kate both board the next plane for Italy hoping to find her Damon.

Someone has to go, but who will it be?

If you like the tv show Family Guy, you will love 'Ted'.
