Best movie to watch when you're depressed thread!

Just wondering some films that would be good ones to watch when you just are in that blah mood or it's a rainy day and you just want to be blah...

When I get fed up with corporations, school or work (and sometimes people) then its Taxi Driver and Fight Club.

Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Shawshank Redemption, Casablanca, Back to the Future, Toy Story and The Royal Tenenbaums among others do the trick for me.

I never watch the TV shows, but I've often put on South Park, the Movie for the expressed purpose of cheering me up. Bright colors, silly songs, rude talking. Nothing makes me cheer up faster than watching two cartoon characters farting along to the melody of a song.
