1 Ferris Bueller's Day off
This is a classic movie starring Matthew Broderick. If you've never seen it before, now is the time. It's about a high school kid who tricks his parents into believing he's sick so he can skip school for the day. He makes his best friend and girlfriend tag along, and they have the adventure of a lifetime. While you shouldn't play hooky, this film will show you that you should stop taking life so seriously and learn to enjoy the moment while it lasts.
2 Yes Man
Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel star in this funny film. It's about a man who normally turns down every opportunity that is presented to him. However, he ends up challenging himself to say "yes" to everything he's asked for an entire year, and his life changes dramatically. The film will inspire you to try new things in order to really live life to its fullest.
3 The Big Lebowski
There's no one more chill and carefree than The Dude. He's played by Jeff Bridges, but John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, and Philip Seymour Hoffman also appear in this film. It's all about a normal guy who likes to go bowling with his friends and drink. It'll make you realize that sometimes the best things in life are the silly things.
4 Fight Club
Fight Club stars Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter. Whether or not you've read the book, you're bound to enjoy the film version of this incredible story. It's all about a man who decides that he's bored with his mundane, average life and wants act out. While you shouldn't start beating up everyone you see, this movie can inspire you to do as you wish instead of what "the man" wants you to do.
5 Easy a
This movie is a modern spin on The Scarlett Letter. It's about a high school student who has allegedly had sex with her close friend. Even though the rumor isn't true, she uses it to her advantage. The film will show you that you shouldn't care what people think about you. Just let their comments roll off of your back.
6 The Breakfast Club
It doesn't matter what clique you fit into, because it will be represented in this film that stars Molly Ringwalk, Ally Sheedy, and Emilio Estevez. It'll inspire you to stop judging others and stop worrying about whether others are judging you. You can all get along, even if you come from different walks of life.
7 Law Abiding Citizen
This movie, starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx, is about a man who tries to get justice after his wife and daughter are raped and murdered. While you certainly shouldn't break the law like Gerard's character does, this film will remind you that the line between good and evil can easily become blurred.
We care way too much about our appearances and the way others view us, even though we'd be much happier if we just stopped giving a damn. Which one of these carefree movies do you like the best?
