    "feel fun" or "feel amused"

    Could anyone please tell me the difference between "feel fun" and "feel amused" ?

    Easy! "Feel fun" isn't English - it sounds as if someone has been trying to stretch the meaning of "have fun" (which means "enjoy").

    Now I come to think of it, "feel amused" sounds a bit odd; you either are amused or you're not.

    These are all possibilities:

    It was good fun
    I had a good time
    I enjoyed myself

    Thank you for your reply and giving me some examples. Since I've read these expressions in some sentences of internet, I thought I could use them...
