11 Movies Perfect For A Glorious Snow Day

For those who live in the northeast, you've probably already received the email. It says something along the lines of, "Due to the forecasted blizzard, our offices will be closed tomorrow." But it's not a blizzard this time. It's a bomb cyclone, whatever that is.

Just as you begin your victory dance, however, you remember that this is 2018, and that email really means you'll be working from home. Still, a closed office means a day answering client concerns from the comfort of your couch. You'll be in pajamas. You'll eat pancakes and drink hot chocolate. And, you're going to have movies on in the background all day.

So, we've put together a list of 11 films that make for a pretty perfect snow day. Ahead, the movies that were basically created for just this moment.

The Godfather Trilogy

Rejoice, because The Godfather, one of the greatest movies of all time, is streaming on Netflix. And so are the two sequels! You officially have no need to go outside today. Instead, you can watch the powerful drama that swirls around the Corleone mafia family over the course of generations.

The Departed
Not only is this movie just so freakin' good, it's responsible for one of the best GIFs of all time.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
The MTA and LIRR may make it impossible for you to catch a train to Montauk during this blizzard, but you can at least be inspired to take a honeymoon on ice with Joel and Clementine.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Let's be real: You're going to end up watching the entire series after this. But, it's okay — it's a snow day.

Dumb & Dumber
Join Harry and Lloyd on a trip to someplace warm — a place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I’m talking about a little place called Aspen.

Mrs. Doubtfire
Because, you love and miss Robin Williams, but you can't make it through Good Will Hunting without crying.

Rear Window
Like L.B. Jeffries, you too are stuck inside your apartment. Live vicariously through him in this classic Hitchcock film as he spies on his neighbors and uncovers a murder. A MURDER!

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
The snow will make it difficult to have the exact kind of day off as Ferris, but it should inspire you to carpe diem and such.

Groundhog Day
For full effect, set your alarm to play "I Got You Babe" as you wake up.

Snow days inevitably remind us of our childhood, and this movie's great for reminding you how to retain aspects of your youth in your boring adult life.
