If you ever get bored on Sunday and have nothing to do and nothing to watch, I’ve got some movie suggestions that might help! I think everyone should watch the movies on this list at least once. Most aren’t critically acclaimed, but they are all objectively entertaining in my opinion.
They all have that lazy Sunday charm about them. 10/10 would recommend watching these while doing your self-care routine and eating your favorite sweets. Just saying.
