During this long break, we are bound to run out of things to do. A good thing to do over a long break is to watch TV shows and movies, but we are not always sure what to watch. Here is a list of movie and TV show recommendations that you are almost certain to enjoy. 


Legally Blonde is a must watch throwback perfect for this long break. This movie is a comedy about a young woman named Elle Woods as she navigates the intense field of law. Elle is not your typical law student and is more interested in nail polish color and name brands than school until she loses her boyfriend because he didn’t think she was “serious enough.” She proves him wrong by going to Harvard Law School, which may be harder than she thought. This is a hilarious film and is bound to make your day better. 

The Politician will not leave you disappointed.
