Blog a Day 199of365: A movie that makes you really happy

A quite ridiculous amount of films make me happy as I love escaping into a brilliant film. If I had to pick one though…ugh two films vying for my attention…..erm….Dodgeball, no wait, The Hangover, no….oh bugger which one?

I guess Dodgeball is the older one and I’ve probably watched it more times than The Hangover. Oh wait, what about Shaun of the Dead? Crap.

Dodgeball is very, very silly. Any film with the line ‘If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball’ then promptly shows men being hit with flying wrenches, is going to be quite silly really. I love it. It puts a smile on my face every time. Maybe it’s the David vs Goliath style scenario, the triumph of good versus evil. Or maybe it’s simply because I like watching people dodge wrenches and run across busy traffic.

The Hangover is also very silly. I can certainly see why some people hate it, it’s bawdy and all about a few men making complete fools of themselves during a stag do based in Vegas. However I think it’s quite sweet in places. Ultimately it’s feel good. Plus it stars Bradly Cooper and he’s lovely.

Shaun of the Dead is silly. Yeah I like silly films when I need something to cheer me up. I like zombies, I like romantic comedies, I like Simon Pegg. It just works for me.

That’s forgetting many, many other films that make me happy. I love films, they rock.

    Dodgeball is one of my favourites, too. Ben Stiller’s performance as White Goodman is a masterclass in deluded egotism.
