12 Movies to Watch on Netflix If You're Having a Bad Day

Everything is going to be okay.


1. Just Friends


This is the movie that proves Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris are . How can you not smile?

2. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants


If watching this doesn't do the trick, give your BFF a call. Tell her why today sucked. Find out when she's returning your favorite jeans.

3. The Gabby Douglas Story


If you're a gymnastics junkie, you might find this Lifetime biopic of Olympic champion Gabby Douglas a little . But it's heavy on the inspiration — and that may be exactly what you need right now.

4. Along Came Polly


Jennifer Aniston plays the loopy, kind-hearted girlfriend to Ben Stiller's uptight, risk assessment expert. If she can help that guy chill the eff out, surely she can do the same for you.

5. Save the Last Dance


There's nothing like an epic dance scene to lift your spirits.

6. Bring It On


Cheerleading competitions work too.

7. Drumline: A New Beat


And drumline competitions.

8. 13 Going on 30


How charming is Jennifer Garner? Stuff down sad thoughts about her and Ben Affleck getting a divorce and let her dimples work their magic on you.

9. Beyond the Lights


You can't go wrong with a love story from Gina Prince-Bythewood, the woman who brought you Love & Basketball (a movie that is NOT AVAILABLE ON NETFLIX, but should be!).

10. Duplex


This dark comedy is so underrated. It's about new homeowners who literally try to kill the old lady upstairs. And it stars Drew Barrymore. Life is good!

11. E.T.


Another Drew Barrymore movie, this one being the classic. It's going to make you sob — and in that sense, it might feel like a bad movie to watch if you're having a shitty day. But crying is cathartic. Let it all out.

12. Good Will Hunting


See above. (And cheer up soon, xo.)

Correction: Drumline is not available on Netflix, but Drumline: A New Beat is. Enjoy!
