Strictly Ballroom. If I'm feeling kind of down, that's my go-to movie. It's just so silly and over-the-top, I can't help feeling better by the end.

About A Boy always cheers me up. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein makes me feel like I'm five years old again.

I was going to post this. Also, basically any episode of the series makes me smile. For a while I had about 5-10 episodes I would go to when I was feeling down.

Chef (2014)

Also, Shaun of the Dead and The Station Agent (despite having quite a few dark moments) something about the surrogate family ending puts a smile on my face.
