It’s Friday night and you just got back home after a long day’s work. Your plans for the night fell through and you don’t know what to do any more. Well, don’t worry because your Fridays in 2019 might just shape up to be quite exciting with a list of feel-good movies lined up to release this year.
1. Isn’t It Romantic
Boasting of an all-star cast, this movie has been generating quite a lot of hype for its quirky storyline. Rebel Wilson plays Natalie, a young New Yorker, who gets to live every girl’s dream when she gets into an accident, and is somehow transported to an alternative universe. It’s a perfect blend of the most popular romantic comedy cliches.
What more? It stars our very own Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
2. Spider-Man: Far From Home
Another addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this time, Spider-Man will be fighting big, bad villains on the streets of London, and not that of New York. Tom Holland, Zendaya and Marisa Tomei will all be returning to reprise their roles, and this time, Aunt May will be in on the little secret. With typical Marvel humour and over-the-top fight scenes, this one is going to be worth a watch.
3. What Men Want
By this time, it has been established that Taraji P. Henson is made for comedy movies. In What Men Want, she plays a sports agent who is passed up for promotion because she is unable to fit into a man’s world. However, in a not-so-unexpected turn of events, she suddenly gets the ability to hear what men around her are thinking. The movie holds great potential as it allows Taraji P. Henson to do what she does best - be a boss.
An uptight woman's life is turned upside down when she is suddenly transformed into her teenage self. After controlling everyone around her for years, this turn of events leads to a number of comedy of errors as she tries to come to terms with her new life and complete loss of control. It's a perfect movie to watch if you're looking to blow off some steam with a dose of light-hearted comedy.
5. The Last Laugh
A comedy for all ages - this movie tells the touching story of two friends who reconnect after decades. It's a story about friendship, reconnecting and finding yourself, and you are sure to leave the theatre with a few tears.
Life may be tough, but it doesn't always have to be. Especially when we have movies like these to remind us that it can actually get better, and you do not have to take life so seriously all the time. So, laugh a little; love a little and definitely don't forget to live a little.
