When offered a choice between watching a good movie or a bad movie, you’d pick the good one 10 times out of 10, right? Not when you’re home sick.
“When your nose is already raw from blowing and your mind is slow off that Robitussin, the last thing you need to do is watch something that will make you cry and/or use your brain,” writes Post Grad Problems scribe Nick Arcadia. “Basically, you just need a film that thoroughly entrances you when you’re watching it, but doesn’t make you feel like you need to necessarily watch all of it, or be awake for it.”
As far as which films fit this bill, Arcadia suggests the Mummy, Kingsmen or National Treasure series.
