”The Long, Long Trailer” is one of the best movies to watch when you’re sick at home

GENRE Supersized TV Show

INGREDIENTS In what’s essentially a long episode of I Love Lucy, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz — here called “Tacy” and “Nicky” — spend their honeymoon driving across the country in a mobile home.

YOU CAN SLEEP THROUGH The gratuitous musical number, ”Breezin’ Along with Breeze.”

STAY AWAKE FOR The satire of ”modern” ’50s trailer culture, and the climactic sequence where Lucy and Ricky — oops, Tacy and Nicky — try to navigate a steep mountain pass

HEALING POWERS Such movies are the ultimate in TV comfort food, better even than the modern big-screen updates, since they keep the cast you know and love from the series.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, the 1966 Batman starring campy Caped Crusader Adam West
