Listmania – Favourite Movies For A Rainy Day

July 1, 2013

There is really nothing better than a movie on a rainy day. This week the Listmania prompt is listing your favourite movies to watch on a rainy day and is being guest hosted at  Rachael’s blog – Hopeful Rae of Sunshine

Here is my list of Favourite Movies:

Pride and Prejudice – BBC Version

Pride and Prejudice

As there are lots of different productions of Pride and Prejudice, it’s important to note which one is my favourite. I cannot stand the other ones, they are just not the same. They don’t have Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and no one can do Mr Darcy like Colin Firth.

I have always loved this book and one of my oldest and closest friends introduced me to this version many years ago, we’d come home from uni with fish and chips or coffee and chocolate (or both!) pop it into the VCR and enjoy. Great memories and I still watch this at least once a month or two. I am not kidding. It doesn’t even have to be raining!

Bridget Jones’s Diary

Bridget Jones's Diary

I love this book too and the movie didn’t disappoint. Oh look, who do we have here? Colin Firth again… hmmm…

Such a funny movie that makes me laugh out loud every single time, perfect for a rainy night (as the kids shouldn’t be around for this one)

Notting Hill

Notting Hill

This is a funny movie, and ‘Spike’ (played by Rhys Ifans) is the funniest character I’ve seen in a movie for ages. Great feel good movie but again it’s one for the adults only.

You’ve Got Mail

You've Got Mail

This movie about books set in New York City? No brainer really. Another feel good movie perfect for those cloudy days.

And a special honorable mention has to go to…

Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls

They get a special honorable mention as Gilmore Girls is a TV series, not a movie but I don’t think that matters. I love this series and have watched it many times. So funny and  lots of feel good moments.

What is your favourite movie to watch on a rainy day?

    I’m practically word perfect with PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Another great rainy day favourite of mine is SENSE AND SENSIBILITY with Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson.
