Sure you've seen it a zillion times, but spending a couple of hours — via your TV screen — at the Turtle Bay resort on Hawaii's North Shore with Kristin Bell, Paul Rudd (or is it Kunu?), and Jason Segal is a sure-fire cure for the winter blues.
If you haven't seen it yet, now is the time. It's really cold and dark by 6 p.m., truly what else are you doing? It's fun, it's fast, it's smart and it's so gripping you'll forget (for two glorious hours) you've still got more than a month of winter to get through.
If you, like all humans right now, are on a Pedro Pascal streak, this super fun, action-packed movie is for you. It also stars Sharon Horgan, which is always a good thing.
Easy and breezy — and definitely not for the kids — this movie is ideal for a date night in. The plot is silly but it works, and Gillian Jacobs is her delightful, super-funny self. Dust off your going out top, pop some popcorn and hop along for the ride.
Although Groundhog Day has come and gone (let's not talk about what Phil predicted, OK?) this movie is worth a rewatch anytime you need a boost. A snow storm and a slushy puddle both play pivotal roles in this sweet rom-com that makes winter seem cozy and pleasant.
For once, a remake as solid as the OG. Here we have total winter escapism on many levels — plush Nancy Meyers interiors, the (imagined) sunny heat of summer camp, massive yachts, and so on. Family movie night gold.
Ignore the CGI dolphins and lose yourself in the locations — filming took place on a number of unbelievably beautiful islands in the Coral Sea off the coast of Australia. Even if the plot is thin at best, it's still George Clooney and Julia Roberts in paradise.
Somehow, this classic Nora Ephron movie — arguably the best rom-com of all time — turns 30 this year. Set in the dull, liminal weeks between Christmas and Valentine's Day, it is a perennially perfect, feel-good winter watch.
