There are loads of classics knocking about that you could watch but if you have sky movies, give Deadpool a try. I watched it yesterday and it was (imo) proper laugh out loud funny.

queenc81 Thu 29-Dec-16 09:43:24

I watched dead pool last night. It's brilliant!! Thanks for the suggestion x

flightywoman Thu 29-Dec-16 09:43:45

I'd say today:

Singing in the Rain and Star Wars. sad

Muriel's Wedding. It's one of the few films I could watch again and again.
