10 Movies For A Self-Care Pamper Night

Whether you’re sad and in need of some TLC or you’re having a night in with friends, the benefits of self-care are beyond just physical. Face masks, hair masks, foot rubs, long baths, painting your nails or even just soaking your feet, it’s good to reward yourself once in a while. So pick your poison, get your feet up & sit back, drink plenty of water and enjoy a movie.



“It is one thing to spark up a doobie and get laced at parties, but it is quite another to be fried all day” Released in 1995 & starring Paul Rudd, Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, and of course, Brittany Murphy, this movie has a plethora of outfits and quotes, not to mention how wonderful Breckin Meyer is. A definite for any pamper night.

Made in 1990, Pretty Woman is still holding it’s ground. I can’t help but mime to King Of Wishful Thinking regardless of what mood I’m in. Julia Roberts, Laura San Giacomo and a kick-ass soundtrack? Don’t mind if I do.

A movie that speaks for itself, made in 1999 and also featuring a notable soundtrack, this film is based on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. Not only do you have Julia Stiles playing the best bitch ever, you have pre-Joker Heath Ledger in all his glory and baby-faced Joseph Gordon-Levitt & David Krumholtz. Cruel to be kind. Excellent viewing.

This film is so brilliant! Made in 1999, it features the likes of Kirsten Dunst, Kirstie Alley, Brittany Murphy, Amy Adams, Allison Janney and many more. As a black comedy, it’s a documentary crew following a small-town beauty pageant, it’s satirical take on death and small town ethics are so well portrayed.

One of those movies for one of those days. Made in 2006, this movie is still as popular as ever. Starring Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep & Stanley Tucci, I really enjoy this film; not to mention the first song is an instant mood-booster!

I’ve always considered this and my next choice as Christmas films but I do watch these occasionally outside of November/December. A star-studded cast and some brilliant quotes (as well as story-lines), this movie does spark a little something in my heart. My cold, cold heart.

Made in 2001, this movie has also got some excellent soundtrack choices (*cough* Artful Dodger – Woman Troubles *cough*). As I unfortunately know the script off by heart, I can’t quite seem to keep this movie out of my head. I’m not all that keen on the follow-up films, but this one will always stick close to heart.

Released in 2004 and written by the marvellous Tina Fey, this movie is witty, funny and almost too quotable. If you haven’t already watched it, you need to allocate an hour and 40 mins of your day to watch it.

Okay, yes, this is a guilty pleasure of mine. I can’t help it. Released in 2004, this movie stars Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer & Mark Ruffalo (and Brie Larson as a Six Chick!?!?) and features a few good select 80’s hits.

“I am so freakin’ pissed” Released in 2004 and created by the wonderful Wayan brothers, this movie is so quotable and there are too many good moments from this movie! I can never listen to Vanessa Carlton without imaging Terry Crews at some point.
