Fun Springtime Movies!

Looking for a fun spring movie to watch on Easter.

Every Easter we have a delicious brunch and watch a movie and we’d like some suggestions. It should be something light and fun but not stupid; we’ve often gone with musicals, Pixar movies, or something with Audrey Hepburn. Things that have worked well in the past include My Fair Lady, Up, and Roman Holiday. For logistical reasons, whatever movie we pick either needs to be available to rent off Amazon instant video or to stream on Netflix. Our plan this year is to watch Ratatouille but we’re looking for other suggestions as well. Thanks!

If you haven't already, why not Easter Parade?

Hopscotch! Funny and witty, delightful plot. On Netflix streaming.

Seven Brides For Seven Brothers - stage sets - but the choreography is amazing. Available at amazon instant video.

Overboard, also on amazon instant video, a 1980's crewball comedy.

An actual classic screwball comedy - Bringing Up Baby, also on amazon instant.

I came here to say Enchanted April, but now I'll just say Cold Comfort Farm.

Seconding Easter Parade.

In the same vein, Meet Me in St. Louis is another awesome classic musical with Judy Garland. It starts in the summer, goes through fall and winter, and ends happily in spring.

Both are available to stream at Amazon.
