When you’re too tired or sore to move, watching a movie with your partner is a great way to relax.

Check out our slideshow to find your new favorite—or rediscover an old one.
Dirty Dancing (1987)
We hear dancing is great for pregnant women—and the toe-tapping, hip-swiveling soundtrack to one of film’s most famous romantic dramas just might get you on your feet. Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, good girl Frances "Baby" Houseman falls in love with the camp's bad boy dance instructor, Johnny Castle. Sixties music, sweaty dance scenes and classic one-liners ensue. And did we mention: Patrick Swayze? Available at amazon.com.
