Most recient release I can think of: Dolphin Tale, should leave you smiling.

Then a few at random:

Let It Ride
Galaxy Quest
The Princess Bride
Jumanji or it's "sequel" Zathura, I keep flip flopping on which I like better.
The first 3 or 4 Pink Panther movies, the ones done while Peter Sellers was still alive.

Some you might not think of as cheer up movies but always make me feel better:

Grosse Pointe Blank
The Sting

Moonstruck, but that one works for me because the Italian family scenes remind me of Sunday mornings at my grandparents house when I was little...

Talking about Pink Panther. The one with Steve Martin, now there's a movie that needs a good riffing. I do love the Peter Sellers one's.

I have zero desire to watch that movie, I'm a huge Steve Martin fan going back to his standup days, but that's one of his I doubt I will ever see.

I actually liked the Steve Martin Pink Panther.  I even kind of liked the sequel to it.  Strangely enough, even though I tried, I couldn't really enjoy the original Pink Panther the same way.  It's a style of comedy I don't generally care for, the pacing is a bit slow for me, and the focus of the film isn't on Clouseau yet.  Now the second movie, A Shot in the Dark, that was pure comic greatness.
