    I like to watch flywheel for inspiration. It makes me feel better giving me hope to carry on. It is a great movie.

    Whenever I feel down I like to watch any movie that has Jim Carey or Robin Williams in it. They are two of the most amazing actors out there. I was so sadden by Robin William's death. He really helped inspire so many people and he didn't even realize it. Depression is a terrible thing. I also like to watch Bob's Burgers. It is only a half hour show but it is always good for a laugh. Any type of comedy makes me feel better.

    Well tonight I have to desire to be lifted up so I came to have a look at what was being offered here and not so much to share. When I am feeling down, I love a good comedy so maybe I will check out those you and others mentioned. I am terrible with names, but some movie characters I see them and I start to laugh. Donald Trump has been doing that to me recently and I mean no offense to serious supporters.

    I like romantic comedies too when I need my spirits lifted, or just comedies in general. I don't like watching anything dark or dreary because I feel like all that does is bring me down. I want to be smiling during movies, not crying!

    Shawshank Redemption always cheers me up. I love how Andy survives such horrible conditions while making the best of it and then gets his revenge on the warden and the guards. When he and Red meet up again at the very end, it's kind of like a prison fairy tale.

    Movies that motivate me and lift my spirits are Homerun, Stepmother, Flywheel, Courageous and Fireproof.

    I love watching comedies but nowadays I just always seem to watch the romantic love sob films. The only time I will watch comedies is when I am with my boyfriend

    I won't recommend a movie but a show here, it's called "Elementary". The show basically resembles a modern, fresh take on Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson's cases. While the main plot is not that upbringing, after a couple of episodes I fell in love with the characters and whenever I watch it I learn something new.

    Movies can really encourage you and make you get out of stress. I like watching new discoveries films. New scientific discoveries do attract my attention making me to avoid stressful moments.

    I'm glad you wrote this because I wanted to say I like to watch something funny and a bit rude like Family Guy or American dad when I'm feeling down but I haven't been on this forum long and thought people might think me a bit sleazy!

    @LindaSuzanne, Actually I have the same sentiments, lol. To be honest, I actually held off on mentioning such vulgar films like Bruno, Borat, and Deuce Bigalow, and if you have watched them, they are by no means decent!
