Some movies are really easy to forget, especially ones with comedies and jokes. They are great, but certainly not the ones you'd want to watch when your mind is preoccupied. These movies will certainly take up your mind with their endearing stories, but not too much that they stress you out like horrors and mysteries do. They might be a bit dramatic and exaggerated at times, but just enough that you can laugh and shed a little tears.
If you love some lighthearted, wholesome stories that will make you feel better for the night, here's a good list from Brighthumanity for you to Netflix and chill tonight.
