You can rest easy knowing your upcoming move will never be as dramatic or overblown as what we see in the movies. Still, it is fun to watch all the drama unfold on television. Most movies that involve moving tend to be comedic, relatable, and often remind us that some things are more important. When you’re packing up your belongings, consider throwing a moving on the big screen and enjoying the ambiance.
