Most reliable

An oldie but a goodie, you really can’t go wrong when you’re sourcing furniture from Crate and Barrel and CB2. We particularly love CB2 for its budget-conscious prices. It appeals to first-time homeowners, which allows you less of a commitment to a piece of furniture when furnishing your home. We love the Tandom Sleeper Sofa that allows you to comfortably have guests stay over. The best part? It doesn't look like a sleeper, so if you don't want anyone to overstay their welcome — they’ll never know there's a bed for them.

The 10 best movies to fall asleep to – from Pineapple Express to Friday
These are the kinds of comfort movies that make it easy to doze off
Bill Murray in Groundhog Day.

If you're a genuine movie lover, you've probably spent a fair amount of time falling asleep in front of your  TV or streaming device. Falling asleep in front of a movie can feel like a failure, but there's nothing wrong with snuggling up on the couch with a great movie and letting yourself doze off whenever you're ready. It doesn't necessarily speak to the movie's quality; sometimes, you're just tired, or you're so familiar with the beats of a certain film that you can't help but nod off.

There are some movies, though, that are especially great for sleeping. These are the movies that feel so comforting and warm that staying awake might be a challenge. Of course, you should try to watch every movie at least once all the way through. On a rewatch, though, you might find that these are the best movies to fall asleep to.

Ranked: The best Jack Nicholson movies ever made
From As Good as It Gets to Five Easy Pieces, these are the best Nicholson films
Jack Nicholson in Chinatown

Few actors in Hollywood's long history have had more legendary careers than Jack Nicholson. Ever since he first emerged as part of a new generation of acting talent in the late 1960s, Nicholson has proved that he's one of the greatest acting talents of his — or any other — generation, alongside the likes of Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. With a totally distinct look and an energy that is both terrifying and infectious, Nicholson has taken on a wide array of roles that span multiple genres.

Nicholson continued to deliver great performances decade after decade for nearly 40 years before unofficially retiring in the 2010s (he says he wouldn't call it retirement, but he hasn't been in a movie in about a decade now), and this list of Jack Nicholson movies chronicles some of his very best work.

The 12 best Sean Connery movies of all time
These films starring the Scottish actor rise above the rest
Sean Connery on The Rock

If you're too young to remember the hype around Sean Connery, ask your parents or grandparents what it was like to be a movie fan during his era of stardom. There wasn't a person on the planet who didn't immediately think of Connery when listing the actors with the biggest screen presence. But what is it that makes this man so incredibly iconic? Could it be because he never changes his voice for movies because "the emotions should be the same, internationally?" Perhaps it’s because of his unique Scottish accent that any novice impersonator is sure to try and mimic. All we know for sure is: Connery’s James Bond is -- for an overwhelming majority -- the best and most memorable of all 007 iterations in history.
Though his big on-screen break was as the devilishly handsome and smooth secret agent, real fans know that Sean Connery was much more than that. Besides being a respectful, earnest, and successful actor, Connery spent his first 25 years -- starting at the age of 7 -- working manual labor jobs and eventually joining the Royal Navy at 16. Truly a man of many hidden talents, he also took dance lessons for 11 years, was offered a soccer contract with Manchester United, and he also spent time working as a nude model for art students after being honorably discharged from the military.
There are so many reasons to love the late, great Sir Sean Connery, but we are here to praise him for his most memorable on-screen performances. Yes, James Bond will, of course, be mentioned, but we also bring out the later films in his career that made him so much himself. So mix yourself a vodka martini "shaken, not stirred" and help us celebrate the shining star that was Sean Connery. Here are the best of the best of Sean Connery movies.

Dr. No (1962)
