    The Big Chill (I can recite the whole thing for you.........)
    Steel Magnolias (this one too)
    Field of Dreams
    West Side Story
    The Way We Were
    St. Elmo's Fire
    Sound of Music
    Good Morning Vietnam
    Field of Dreams
    Stand By Me
    (I'm sure there are others, but those are the 10 I thought of right away)

    "A Room With A View" - I went to Florence on my first oversea trip because of this film. The scene where George steal a kiss from Lucy Honeychurch among the wheat field is one of the most romantics ever, and who can forget the naked romp at the swim hole :)
