Frosty Friday Fun {Or My Five Favorite Movies That Feature Snow}

via
Yes! It is frigid and frosty and FREEZING around these parts today! After almost an entire week of snow, more snow, ice, and oh look, the snow is still here, I am really quite tired of snow. For any northern people who get snow all winter long and love it to pieces, I'm sorry, but I'm a southern girl. We don't usually have this sort of weather stick around for so long. It's cold!

So! I'm going to stop complaining about the weather now and get to the point of this post. I figured if I had to endure winter weather outside, I should think about happy stuff while inside! And what's better than cute and fun movies? Here's my list of a few movies I enjoy that feature snow in them. (If I can't beat the weather, I might as well figure out a way to tolerate it, right? ;)


The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Widescreen Edition)


The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe

Having been a big fan of the book series by C.S. Lewis for several years now, I was thrilled to hear they were going to put them on the big screen! And this one is still my favorite of the three they've adapted. I thought the screenwriter(s?) did a fantastic job of staying true to the original story. And I absolutely loved seeing Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy come to life on the screen. And Mr. Tumnus! And of course, Aslan!!! I'd never thought about how comforting and awesome Liam Neeson's voice is, but hearing him speak for Aslan was brilliant. And to see Narnia and all the characters was simply lovely! I've watched this one several times and it never gets old. Now I'm thinking I need to do a reread of the series again soon.


New In Town (Fullscreen Edition)


New In Town

This one just never fails to make me laugh! Renee Zellweger is just so good at playing Lucy. And Harry Connick, Jr.? Pardon me while I swoon. I admit I quite like him with a little scruff! ;) Plus I'm thinking that if I watch this one again, it'll remind me that the snow I'm currently digging my way out of is nowhere near the same level as those in Minnesota have to deal with! Nothing like a little comparison to make you feel better about yourself, right?


While You Were Sleeping

While You Were Sleeping

I love this movie!!! Sandra and Bill are simply too cute together. And there's this scene where they're trying to help each other across the slippery ice on the sidewalk and they keep falling and laughing and yeah. It's adorable! Watching these two fall in love is seriously sweet and all kinds of awesome. Did I mention how much I love this movie? ;)


The Holiday

The Holiday

Both couples are very sweet, but Iris and Miles? They're my favorite! Well, except for Arthur, the legendary screenwriter living right next door. I love how he and Iris take each other under their wings. Both are so lost and trying to find themselves again and how much their friendship changes them and helps them to open up and take chances is just so very lovely. Plus I would love to visit Iris' little English cottage! It's delightful.



Last Holiday

Queen Latifah is fabulous! Watching Georgia burst out of her shell and start taking charge of her life is wonderful. And to do it at an awesome resort in Czechoslovakia? That place looks amazing! This movie just makes me grin. Filled with laughter of course, but there are so many sweet and touching moments. It really is a "feel good movie". I just have a soft spot for this story.


And there you have it! I realize there are many others I probably could have listed, but I figured five was a good number. Are there any you'd like to add to this list? :)

  4. Great picks! I have loved "While You were Sleeping" for so long! They just don't make many rom coms like that anymore.

    New In Town is another fav! And The Holiday is cute. I do wish we could visit Iris's cottage!

    Another great movie with snow is Little Women. That one is good for so many reasons...

    1. I completely agree, Courtney. The romcom movies these days are just....not terrible because I DO like them, but maybe just different? I don't know. But some of those older romcoms just have a special place in my heart, I guess. So none of the newer ones can live up to them. :)

      Wouldn't it be so much fun to stay at Iris' cottage?! It's so cozy and comfortable looking.

      Little Women! How could I forget that one?! I haven't seen it in ages, but it's definitely a keeper. Thanks for the reminder! :)

  5. I have never even heard of "New in Town" and I love Renee Zellweger! And quite like HCJ too. AND I went to college in MN. How did I not know that movie existed? On my to-watch list now. Thanks!

    I would add "White Christmas."

    1. I'm so glad I could recommend it then, Hamlette! Because it's just so cute and funny. I hope you enjoy if/when you watch it! Renee is great in it. Her skill at comedy is fabulous and she willingly does some very funny things in this one. :)

      Ooo! That's a great one! Haven't watched it in a long time, but it's certainly a classic for a reason.
