The Mental Benefits Of Movies

New York, NY -- Why spend $200 an hour lying on a couch telling your troubles to a therapist when you can get the same benefits by renting a movie?

That's the philosophy behind an upcoming book, "Cinematherapy Goes to the Oscars" (Universe) which argues that Academy Award-winning flicks are "the best movie medicine ever made."

Authors Nancy Peske and Beverly West claim movies like "Erin Brockovich" or "Finding Nemo" are perfect anti-anxiety elixirs because they show how a person -- or a fish -- can overcome high-stress situations.

And if you're having issues with your father, the main character in the Oscar-winning movie "The Godfather" can substitute as a daddy figure.

Finally, the big top drama "The Greatest Show on Earth" teaches a great lesson with its over-the-top greasepaint theatrics: It's OK to admit you're scared and vulnerable.
