Hi!

I apologize in advance, but I have a few requirements!

Moderately clean.

No blood, policemen, guns, detectives.

Contemporary (I never quite understand old movies)

Some kind of moral or inspiration would be nice.

No silly slapstick throwing pies at each other's faces. Quality humor is great.

I have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime! Does anything like this exist? Thank you!

How recent does the film have to be for you to understand it?

Would you watch a show instead? The Good Place is excellent

Post WWII

I get confused in older shows. I have a hard time understanding different accents and dialects so that's probably why.

Ummmm. Hmm.

I think Fabulous's recommendation of Sully is great. Two other great movies also starring Tom Hanks- Forrest Gump and The Terminal.

Something with a message... I'm thinking of The Help. Also great.

OMG I haven't seen many movies but I saw all of these! I loved Sully but maybe because I'm from NY and miss it. Idea

To fit your criteria - contemporary, non-cop/non-gore, clean language (the characters are literally censored if they try to curse, like “what the fork!”, and it makes sense in context)

It’s also very funny, some absurdity, but mostly just really quirky characters and good writing

It’s *about* ethics and morality but isn’t preachy (lead writers are Jewish, of course, even if the show isn’t overtly religious)

Another great show that would meet your requirements is the West Wing

I love it, but the language is not at all clean.

How about Truman show, groundhog day or arrival?

The Good Place is an excellent recommendation! It's part of the premise that curse words are changed to "nicer" words, in the good place Smile
