The Best Movies You Can Watch As Inflight Entertainment

A flight basically guarantees you time to watch a movie from start to finish, with limited interruptions. We all know there’s movies you go to see in theaters, and then there are the movies you save for the those long plane rides.

We suggest downloading a few options on your iPad or laptop because, we all know the in-flight options usually aren’t the best. Depending on your taste in film here are our suggestions for the best plane movies:


If you’re in the mood to get in touch with your more emotional side, or as Drake says get in your feelings – we suggest the following.

  • The Notebook 
  • Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close 
  • Lady Bird
  • Dear John


If you’re not huge into dramas (I know I’m not) and comedy is more your style then, these films will literally have you laughing out loud. Hopefully not too loudly though…no one in your row will like you then.

  • Zach and Mike Need Wedding Dates
  • Bridesmaids
  • Legally Blonde
  • Confessions of a Shopaholic


Now, there’s something to be said for watching a film that isn’t completely mindless and may actually educate you. My boyfriend and I recently watched a documentary on the founding of McDonald’s, it was super interesting! So, I would definitely recommend checking out the following for your next flight!

  • Crazy About Tiffany’s
  • Amy
  • The September Issue
  • Fittest on Earth

Chick Flicks:

You can never go wrong with a good chick flick! Seriously, there are very few times when I’ve watched one and been disappointed they’re classic.

  • Pretty Woman
  • The Other Woman
  • The Princess Diaries
  • Mean Girls


While you’re sitting on the plane bored out of your mind, stuck in your seat, these action films are just what you need to help pass the time!

  • The Heat
  • G.I. Jane
  • Charlie’s Angels
  • Any James Bond
