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.
Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)
This modern take on Pride and Prejudice stars Renée Zellweger as the lovably imperfect, post-feminist Bridget while she chronicles a year of self-improvement and the search for love. Bridget’s accident-prone shenanigans will surely have you cackling, and Hugh Grant as the caddish Daniel Cleaver and Colin Firth as Bridget's "true love", Mark Darcy, make for who-will-she-choose storytelling. Available at amazon.com.
