The Very Best Lazy Sunday Movies

Is there anything better than sitting on the couch on a lazy, rainy Sunday and binging on movies and snacks? Not much. Sundays are made for bare feet, sweatpants, and forgetting about what you did the night before.

The very best lazy Sunday movies are the ones that keep you entertained, but also allow for intermittent napping. With millions of viewing options, it can be hard to know what to watch.

You need a break before the work week starts on Monday, right?

Streaming services, satellite dishes, and cable TV give us the entire cinematic world—quite literally—at our fingertips. To get you started, here are some of the best lazy Sunday movies for you to binge. Pull-on your sweats, ball up on the smooshy sofa, and veg out.

5 Best Lazy Day Movies

Office Space
  • Amazon Prime Video (Video on Demand)
  • Ron Livingston, Jennifer Aniston, Stephen Root (Actors)

Office Space

No movie nailed the mind-numbing corporate existence better than this classic. Office Space follows Peter Gibbons, a young software engineer who is less than happy with his soul-crushing job.

He gets hypnotized and forgets all his troubles, then decides to steal from his company with the help of two recently laid-off coworkers. “Did you get that memo?”

Dumb and Dumber
  • Amazon Prime Video (Video on Demand)
  • Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Lauren Holly (Actors)

Dumb and Dumber

Lighten things up with Jim Carrey and the tale of two idiots driving across the country in a dog van. The comedy and gags in the movie are timeless, making it as funny today as it was in the 1990s.

You know what you’re in for when an opening line is, “I fell off the jetway again.”

  • Amazon Prime Video (Video on Demand)
  • Gene Hackman, Barbara Hershey, Dennis Hopper (Actors)


Fall in love with the feel-good story of a small-town Indiana basketball team taking on the big city in a classic David vs. Goliath tale. Gene Hackman stars as a basketball coach looking for redemption from his past mistakes.

His past catches up to him, but he manages to survive with the help of his players.

Legally Blonde
  • Amazon Prime Video (Video on Demand)
  • Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson, Selma Blair (Actors)

Legally Blonde

Reese Witherspoon stars as an L.A. sorority girl who many write off as a dumb blonde. She proves everyone wrong when she enrolls in Harvard Law school in an attempt to win back her former boyfriend.

It’s a plucky, feel-good comedy that teaches you to never judge a book by its cover.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows
  • Amazon Prime Video (Video on Demand)
  • Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Noomi Rapace (Actors)

Sherlock Holmes

Jude Law and Robert Downy, Jr.? Yes, please. Guy Ritchie directed this reboot of the classic murder mystery. Giving Mr. Holmes and his friend Dr. Watson a gritty reimagining was the right thing to do.

Downey plays Holmes as a hard-drinking, reclusive investigator who is always ten steps ahead.

Anything From the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Pick anything from the MCU, and you won’t be disappointed. With over 20 titles to choose from, you could spend an entire weekend watching them.

Avengers: Infinity War is one of the best, combining just about all the characters in a wonderfully written story of good versus evil.
