The snow is falling, your car is stuck in the driveway and they just announced on the radio that pretty much everything in your town has closed due to the winter storm. It’s clear that you’re not going anywhere tonight. What movie do you pop in the ol’ DVD player? (Here’s ten of our top choices!)

    Great picks! I absolutely LOVE the Labyrinth until now, haha.
    But you can’t have a snow day without some Roman Holiday or Casablanca ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh man…The Shining. I’ll never watch that movie ever again. It was good…but never again. I’d probably watch Robin Hood Men in Tights or Lord of the Rings haha

    I ADORE Waiting for Guffman. And no one ever mentions it! I think it’s the best of the Christopher Guest mockumentaries, hands down. Even A Mighty Wind wouldn’t give it a run for its money.

    Stoooool roooooom~

    I’m so glad you guys like my picks! I was hoping they weren’t too obscure. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love all of your suggestions!

    Miranda: I am a HUGE Christopher Guest Fan, especially Waiting for Guffman! A good friend of mine from college and I often post the lyrics to “A Penny for Your Thoughts” on each other’s FB walls.

    Great list guys!! Especially princess bride, the shining, and labyrinth….I own all 3 of these and watch them all the time! I’d also like to add groundhog day! If that isnt a snowy/rainy day movie then I dont know what is!!
