19 Nostalgic Movies to Netflix If You're Snowed In

Just in time to ruin Thanksgiving travel plans, there's a crazy winter snow storm sweeping the east coast. Hopefully you're home safe already for Turkey Day, but if you're stuck at home — whether with your family or back in your own apartment far away — you'll need some entertainment for at least the next day or two. Thankfully, Netflix's nostalgic movies collection is here to save the day, and make you feel like a kid again in the process.

Imagine what you watched during snow days while you were growing up — some Disney animated movies and other comedies like Flubber at first, then Lindsay Lohan favorites like The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday as you entered your tween years, and then fun '90s and early '00s teen films like Can't Hardly Wait and She's All That in high school. You can stream all of those titles and many more while it's a winter wonderland outside, satisfying whichever period of your life that you're feeling nostalgic for. So curl up with a cup of hot cocoa or some chicken noodle soup, hunker down for Thanksgiving, and weather the storm. These movies will help you get through the worst of it.

The Parent Trap

You can just watch this on repeat forever, too.

Another swap for Lindsay Lohan!

Classic Hilary Duff.

For young Zac Efron and his young love with Vanessa Hudgens.

She's All That

My personal favorite from this era.
