On a cold, rainy night, snuggling up in your fave recliner with a soft, warm throw is the perfect way to enjoy amazing films at this time of year. There are a vast number of comfort-blanket movies and family-friendly films, so we decided to share six of the best below…Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)
Let's start with this vintage classic family movie, which will give you serious cravings for sweets and chocs! Despite this movie being remade in recent years, the colourful original still oozes appeal and rates higher on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB). It's an easy film to watch with the entire family, keeping young children entertained. Make sure you have plenty of treats to hand or you will get hungry watching this film!Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
An 80s teen classic telling the story of a riotous day off for Ferris and his friends in Chicago. This tale of mischief and mayhem will be a nostalgia trip for the over-40s, and it will put a smile on tweens and teen's faces too. Be careful with popcorn and drinks, as there are some laugh-out-loud moments. Ideal for watching in a recliner with a drinks holder and wipe-clean bonded leather or technology fabric upholstery.Forrest Gump (1994)
Moving forward to the 90s, this family classic will have you laughing with joy one moment and reaching for the tissue box at other times. Tom Hanks is the title character, and his famous quote “life is like a box of chocolates” will be ringing in your ears for days to come. Pick a reclining chair covered in a warm fabric, grab a cosy, stylish bouclé blanket, and of course, a big box of your favourite chocs.Finding Nemo (2003)
Moving into the 21st century and it's hard to believe this animated film was released 20 years ago! This wonderful, animated, underwater adventure will appeal to kids and big kids alike. Both funny and heart-warming, you'll be surprised at just how sentimental you will feel about little Nemo and his friends. Go for a double bill and watch Finding Dory afterwards. Curl up in your recliner with your favourite treats.Frozen (2013)
A more recent comfort classic, but one that's unlikely to ever get old is this super-cool animated story of fearless Anna and Snow Queen Elsa. If you're not already singing the theme tune reading this excerpt, then you certainly will be by the end of the film! Get comfy, make sure you have plenty of snacks to hand, sit back and enjoy. And what better way to stay cosy than in a recliner with heat and massage functions?Avengers: Endgame (2019)
When it comes to action and special effects, you really can't beat a Marvel film. This is a great choice for couples, groups of friends, and families with older children (12A). It helps to watch these films in sequence, so why not plan an Avengers binge duvet day over the coming festive season? A great film can turn a mundane evening into a memorable one.
