More Happiness - 5 Movie Moments I Love

That Thing You Do! has been coming on Starz a lot this month and it got me thinking about movie scenes that make me completely happy. You know, the kind of scenes that you cannot watch without getting a big, goofy grin on your face (and, if you can, perhaps you should check with the Wizard about getting a new heart).

So I thought I'd gather a few of my favorites (in no particular order):

That Thing You Do!
"We're on the radio!"
(Sorry about the poor quality video. It's all I could find.)
"And I'm Tracy!"
(Here's the rest of my favorite part. The quality on this video is crappy but I couldn't find a better version.)

Little Miss Sunshine
Super Freak
(spoiler - But have you seriously not seen this movie?!)

Slumdog Millionaire

The 40-Year-Old Virgin
End credits (spoiler alert)

It's quite possible I just really, really like people getting good news with lots of screaming and/or dancing in a big group (preferably with Steve Carrell).
What movie scenes make you grin like an idiot?


  1. My favorite is the end of Love Actually at the Heathrow arrivals gate when Natalie jumps into David's arms. He jokingly says, "God, you weigh a lot." and she replies, "Shut your face!". Always leaves me grinning like a moron.

    1. Yes! I love that. In fact, I pretty much love all their interactions. That part makes me goofily happy. Then I cry during the credits when they show all the real people greeting each other at the airport.

    2. Me too!!! It is my #1 favorite movie of all time. I've seen it at least 200 times and it never. gets. old.
