Not a film but recently started watching The OA.
I thought it was just some trash DH selected but it’s actually really good so far.

If you want a weepy romance The Notebook is on Netflix at the moment.

I recently watched Thelma and Louise for the first time but I was late to the party you've probably seen it already.

A bit leftfield, but if you like historical films, try Lady Jane. It's brilliant - a good weepie. (Lady Jane Grey - Helena Bonham Carter)

I loved the Imitation Game but it’s not girly. I’ve got White Teeth on my list, read the book years ago and enjoyed it. Not that girly though.

Always be my maybe - Perfect girlie cute film

When Harry Met Sally

It’s perfect.

Sense and sensibility is on Netflix - I love that film.

As is Deadpool which I also think is great....

Completely different ends of the spectrum film wise but would happily watch both tonight.

I too have a child free Netflix to myself today. I'm also going to check your replies, as it seems I'm in one of those moods...

I watched one episode of Away and couldn't get into that.

And one of The OA and can't get into that either.

I can recommend Virgin River though, although it's a series. One of those lay on the couch and no thinking, easy watching light series.

Main actor is hot too Smile

Joy is a brilliant film....with Jennifer Lawrence

TopBitchoftheWitches · 03/10/2020 17:38

I started watching the fall this afternoon but fell asleep 😴
What I did watch was good.

Dolly Parton soundtrack, great film

BabyLlamaZen · 03/10/2020 17:41

When Harry met Sally. A heartwarming cracker!

DrDavidBanner · 03/10/2020 17:43

Dumpling is fun
When Harry Met Sally is on of my all time favourites
Some Like It Hot never gets old

MrsGrindah · 03/10/2020 17:44

Wine Country! It’s a bit like Bridesmaids and also starts Maya Rudolph..funny and touching.

I think it's sense and sensibility. Depending how much time you have- bbc pride and prejudice. 6 hours of bliss.

Dolly Parton soundtrack, great film

I previewed the Dolly Parton one. Maybe I will give that one a whirl.

I also need light. The series I selected aren't light.
mamaduckbone · 03/10/2020 17:48

For proper girlie weepie Me before You is nice...

isthismylifenow · 03/10/2020 17:50

Ooh another film I watched recently was The Light between two oceans.

Redcups64 · 03/10/2020 17:52

For a light hearted film that makes you feel good try Enola Holmes. My eldest watched it and whilst it was on I got glued to it and loved it which I was genuinely shocked at!

Summer776 · 03/10/2020 18:03

Remember Me
Safe Haven
The Vow
Dear John
The Best of Me

Overseasmom100 · 03/10/2020 18:05

Some good suggestions thanks. Might do when Harry met Sally as never seen it...beve4 seen Rhema and Louise either!!!

Dumplin also not seen.

When flicking through I cant believe how many films Jennifer Aniston has been in!!!!!

I second Dumpling. Sobbed my heart out at that one

Aardvarkitsabloodyaardvark · 03/10/2020 18:09

Enola Holmes is a great film!

temproasted · 03/10/2020 18:11

Angela's Ashes is meant to be good and on Netflix (friend recommended it to me earlier today!)
