Plane journeys can be long and boring, so it can pay to load up your laptop or tablet with some movies so that you can help pass the time and prevent boredom. However, what are the best movies to watch as you sail through the air? Obviously, you don’t want any movies involving plane crashes, that’s a big no-no.
Anyhow, let’s dive into some suggestions!
1. The Princess Diaries
For many people, The Princess Diaries is an enduring touchpoint from their youth. The story centers on Mia Thermopolis, a clumsy 15-year-old who finds out that she is the heir to the throne of Genovia. Upon learning of her royal status, she realizes that serving others is more important than conforming to the rules of princessdom.
This is a great movie for all girls of any age. The story is based on the popular Princess Diaries novels by Meg Cabot. The film features some amazing performances by Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. The characters are likeable and fun to watch.
2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The film brings together Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) to form a reunion of epic proportions that is bound to warm audiences’ hearts. This is Ford’s most definitive role in the franchise, and it’s clear that he’s not afraid to bare his soul on screen.
It also offers the return of other characters that fans have missed since the Prequel Trilogy, including Chewbacca and R2-D2. These are all excellent performances, but none quite so heart-warming as Ford’s. Expect to see a lot of fantasy violence, with characters being sliced and diced by light sabers and others shot with fantastical weapons.
3. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
A 2003 romantic comedy based on the book by Michele Alexander and Jeannie Long, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is a classic rom-com that has aged very well.
The movie follows Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson), who writes a how-to column for the women’s magazine Composure. She’s tired of being limited to fashion and relationship advice and wants to write about more important topics, including politics.
She’s inspired to pitch a story about how girls can lose a guy in 10 days by doing all of the dating faux pas that women commonly do when they start a new relationship. Her editor, Lana Jong (Bebe Neuwirth), loves the idea and Andie starts looking for a male model to use in her experiment.
Andie ends up dating ad executive Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey), who also accepts an undisclosed bet that he can make any woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Their attempts to drive each other crazy are hysterical, but they eventually fall in love.
