    For instance - she loves Six Days Seven Nights. It ends happy, has beautiful scenery and is "slightly" funny.

    She calls it a Comfort movie (for when she has the flu).

    Any others?

    LA Story is another one.

    2 of the best at this mood, a good warm-hearted spirit throughout the film.

    AMELIE and HAPPY ACCIDENTS, when they come to DVD.

    Until then, I would recommend YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. A great looking DVD, and I laugh everytime I watch it. I live in Manhattan and it helped me get through 9-11. Highly recommended.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Shawshank Redemption? Well - it's a really nice ending and a pretty good movie but I'm not sure the rape scenes or the getting your face bashed in scenes are really "happy happy joy joy scenes". LoL

    There were some pretty good suggestions although I have to wonder about a few of you guys.

    French Kiss is a good one that we have - a star goes to Zak.

    Is Amelie on DVD yet?

    Lou Lou Lou - October Sky is nice but then you have Rocky and SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION - have you ever gone on a date? LOL :)

    just kidding guys - thanks!

    Dead Alive - a sweet love story between a shy man and a headstrong, but fiercely romantic, woman in 1950s New Zealand. The shy man must overcome many obstacles, including his domineering mother and hundreds of flesh-eating zombies, who simply don't know when it's time to leave the party, before he and his true love live happily ever after.
