    Have you noticed there are certain movies you just never get tired of watching? What's does your list include? Here are some of mine (in no particular order as to favorites):

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off (ALWAYS makes me laugh)
    Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Ditto)
    The Fugitive
    Sleepless in Seattle
    Trading Places
    Groundhog Day
    The Net
    When Harry Met Sally
    Father of the Bride (Steve Martin version)
    The Big Chill
    American Dreamer

    Ditto to:
    Ferris Bueller, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Groundhog Day
    BIG no to any of the ones with Meg Ryan in
    And add:
    12 Monkeys
    Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid
    Star Wars
    A Few Good Men
    Laurel & Hardy Films
    The Mask (Hmmnn...Cameron )
    My Fair Lady (I know all the words you know...)
    and, erm...
    The Sound of Music ? (oh the shame)

  • 3acrewood

    Yeah - just watched part of My Fair Lady today actually. I get a real bang out of the "Why Can't a Woman Be More Like a Man" routine. LOL And it struck me that in a remake, Kelsey Grammer (Frazier Crane - Do you even have Frazier in England?) would make a PERFECT Henry Higgins.

  • Seven

    My list:
    To Kill A Mockingbird
    Rear Window
    Prince of Tides
    Star Wars
    Sound of Music
    Jane Eyre(GeorgeC.Scott/SusannahYork)
    Tommy Boy
    Beauty and the Beast(Disney)
    The Fugitive

  • 3acrewood

    Oh yes! How could I have forgotten To Kill a Mockingbird! I agree wholeheartedly on that one, 7. ANd, Yes, The Prince of Tides. What a story. But, I have to say I found the book to be much better than the movie. We need a threat on best books here also. (The Bible doesn't count; goes without saying ...)

  • Simon

    Yes..."Why Can't a Woman Be More Like a Man?" - the best bit.
    We do get Frasier over here but I don't watch it very often - the guy would make a good Prof. Higgins though.

    American Beauty


    Fight club and


  • gitasatsangha

    Same here with Ferris Beueller, Dirty rotten Scoundels and Groundhog Day.

    a few others I rewatch a bit are


    Life of Brian "Worse! How could it be worse! Jehovah Jehovah!"



  • Pleasuredome

    all James Bond films

    Back To The Future

    Terminator 1 & 2

    A Bridge Too Far

    Battle of Britain


    Oh yeah!

    Here are a few of my favourites:

    1. Reckless: Aidan Quinn & Darryl Hannah (LOVE THIS MOVIE TO PIECES)1984

    2. Female Troubles: (John Waters - 1974) Divine, Mink Stole, Edith Massey

    3. Baraka: 1992 (simply breathtaking, and without a script or actors, just planet Earth and its inhabitants)

    4. Bona: (Philippines - not sure of the year) But what a great Filipino movie. It is subtitled, and was directed by the late infamous Lina Broca. Brilliant! Very moving and tough as nails. If you are an empowered woman, you may want to check it out. The ending is perfect.

    5. Goin' Down The Road: (Canada 1970) A story about two transplanted Nova Scotians in the big city (Toronto) and the predicaments they get themselves into. It's a damn near accurate portrayal of how some transplanted Maritimers adapted to big city life: success/failure.

    Well there's my contribution. I'm going to relook at some of what many of you posted, perhaps there may be a few additions to my 'most watched' list.
