    A lot of people have used what I consider my test -- whether I stop to watch it on TV even if I have seen it dozens of time. For that reason, my list definitely tends toward comedy and action/fantasy genre.

    Blazing Saddles [We used this on video when I was a kid and we watched them so much, my friends and I could recite the entire movies from memory]
    Animal House [ditto]
    Galaxy Quest
    Ghostbusters
    A Fish Called Wanda
    Princess Bride
    A Christmas Story
    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    Sense and Sensibility (I don't know why, because it is unlike the others, but I have to stop and watch it when it's on)
    Rudy (despite knowing the whole story is mostly hype and I absolutely hate Notre Dame)

    Honorable Mentions: Singing in the Rain, Lord of the Rings, Soapdish, The Natural, Slap Shot, Young Frankenstein, My Fair Lady, West Side Story, Hairspray, Dreamgirls, Beauty and the Beast (Disney's version), The Lion King

    Well, most of these are just our favorites, not great films...

    That Thing You Do!--Tom Hanks wrote and Directed this gem about a young pop band
    The Committments-- same plot as the above, but set in Ireland. Most gratuitous use of the F word I've ever seen!
    The Rocker--Rainn Wilson and Emma Stone's little gem. Another film about a band finding success
    Galaxy Quest--Great cast and a great premise. We pretty much have the film's dialogue memorised
    Band of Brothers mini-series--Best War series ever produced, bar none
    Blades of Glory--I know people have mixed feelings about this film. It was worth it just for the scene of the Iron Lotus in N. Korea
    Pride and Prejudice (2005)--Joe Wright's beautiful take on the classic story. Beautifully directed and filmed
    Noises Off--just a truly funny film. We go see the play anytime it's in production
    Miss Pettigrew Lives for the Day--Frances McDormand and Amy Adams were fantastic in this small film.
    American Dreamer--A cute, fun film that is surprisingly not well known.

    Like Cyn, I had problems paring my list down as well. But... here are my 10 in no particular order:

    - Under the Tuscan Sun
    - All About Eve
    - To Sir, With Love
    - To Sir, With Love II - my father thinks this is better than the first movie
    - The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
    - The Women - ONLY the original from 1939
    - Mrs. Parker & the Vicious Circle
    - Island in the Sun
    - It Happened One Night
    - A Summer Place

    And there are a lot more where they came from !
