Movies to Watch When You’re Sick


I have been on the couch sick for the past three days. And it is the worst. I have a sore throat, cough and a runny nose. A cold. I am not the best patient when it comes to being achy, but Vinn has been the absolute best. He’s made dinners, brought me tissues and really taken care of me.

Since I’ve been home all day, I’ve definitely spent a lot of time watching movies and tv. I have some go-to’s that I watch when I’m sick…and always seem to fall asleep at the exact same moment each time. Here’s what I’ve been watching this week:

Two Weeks Notice


Oh man. Anything with Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock is a win in my book. I’d forgotten about this movie for quite some time but it is so good. I love this movie because you don’t have to think at all while watching it. It’s the perfect sick movie.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days


Is there any movie better than this? Nope. I have probably seen this movie 7,000 times and it gets better each time. I love the soundtrack, too! This is a classic and I love that I can fall in and out of sleep and still know what’s happening.

West Side Story


This is my number one sick movie and has been since I was in middle school. Before I had a tv in my room, my mom would bring in our “car tv” (the ones with the VCR in them) and I would watch this movie over and over again. It is surprisingly long but I just love the music and the dancing. It’s a classic.

Fever Pitch


This movie is so underrated. It’s so funny and I love Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon together. I also love baseball, so it’s a win/win. Unfortunately, this one isn’t on German Netflix, so I haven’t watched it this time, but I used to watch this one all the time when I was sick and thought it would be worth mentioning. Ironically, Jimmy Fallon talks about sick movies and how his is Hot Shots.

    I hope you start to feel better soon! I love watching Toy Story when I’m sick since it’s my favorite movie. Gone With The Wind is another good one to watch since it’s so long.

      Thanks for your sweet note! Ooh both great sick movie recommendations. Toy Story will probably make it on my list to watch tomorrow.
