7 Netflix Movies To Put You In A Good Mood This Monday

We get it – it's been a tough week.

You've had enough of the world and all it's wrong-doings and you just want to balm out and forget everything else exists.

Stick on one of these and prepare to feel goooooooooooood.

1. About A Boy

Hugh Grant in his prime? Check. Adorable child? Check. Slightly depressing back story that makes you feel less bad about your life with an ultimately good ending?

Check and MATE.

2. The Lego Movie

Trust me when I say this isn't just for kids – this is a surprisingly good movie, (though you must be warned that it's lead song 'Everything Is Awesome' will either enthrall you or intensely aggravate you).

3. Clueless

Bonus points because this is on Netflix – who wouldn't be cheered up watching Alecia Silverstone act the dope?

4. Legally Blonde

In a way, isn't the movie the polar opposite of Clueless? Anyway... in the (unlikely) event that you haven't seen this movie, this is, without question, Reese Witherspoon's best role.

I don't care if she won an Oscar for Walk The Line, it should have been for this.

5. Good Will Hunting

Watch this – then watch Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's speech at the Oscars. 

If you heart isn't immediately warmed, we suggest you seek medical help.

6. About Time

Starring Dublin-boy-done-good Domhnall Gleeson and The Notebook-alum Rachel McAdams, this is a rom-com differently and, more importantly, done right.

7. Midnight In Paris

This one also stars Rachel McAdams, leading us to believe that she is the secret to ensuring your movie is truly 'feel-good'. We could be wrong, but we doubt it.

Midnight In Paris is gorgeously nostalgic, following Owen Wilson as a disillusioned screenwriter attempting to find inspiration on a trip abroad. 

It's charming, and also greatly aware of its own pretensions.
