30 Day Film Challenge / Day 26

Today the challenge is a film that made me feel happy.

It is funny how so many of these prompts I find difficult. I think perhaps because I am not a movie aficionado and usually films do not have that much of an impact on how I feel. I went down a rabbit hole trying to decipher just what might make me happy. A happy ending? The good guys prevailing? A funny movie that made me laugh? Or maybe a nonsensical movie that serves as an escape.

I settled on the fact that the company I watch with has a great deal to do with how I feel about the movie. We watched the pseudo remake of “The Absent Minded Professor” (“Flubber”) with our grandson when he was younger and his laughter throughout made me laugh out loud. There were a few ‘borderline’ adult humor scenes that he was just beginning to understand and his laughter was contagious.

I loved the original movie, “The Absent Minded Professor”, in Black and White, but the remake with Robin Williams and the incorporation of robotics and animation made it more appealing to a new generation. John Huston’s screenplay was based on the original 1961 screenplay by Bill Walsh.

I recommend watching it with a child or two.

I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the twenty-sixth day of the challenge. Maybe even join in!

  1. This might be the hardest of all the categories for me, as I generally avoid ‘feel-good’ films. But I am going to choose a relatively modern American film on this occasion, which left me feeling good after watching it. Uncle Buck. (1989)

    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I always feel happy after watching A Christmas Story. I identify with so much in it and I remember the laughter of my boys when they watched it.
