    What film can you re-watch the most?

    And why do you think you keep getting enjoyment out of it?

    The one film I can watch over and over is definitely Willow.  It is and always will be my favorite movie of all time no matter how many new movies come out.  It is a classic fantasy movie made before technology and special effects started to be overused to compensate for a mediocre script and acting.  Before Warwick Davis ever played a goblin in the Harry Potter series he was Willow and that is how I shall always remember him.

    This has to be The Grinch with Jim Carrey.  I have been told so often that Jim and I are twins and I can now quote the whole movie.  I even played the Grinch in a play last Christmas, so I need to keep watching it to fine tune my performance...lol!

    A few different ones and they are all over the map. Pillowtalk with Doris Day and Rock Hudson.  First Contact (Star Trek TNG) and Independence Day.  Love all of those and never get tired of them.

    I re-watch movies that I like just about as I re-listen to music that I like. Movies, of course, take-up more time and have to be scheduled, but the principle is the same for me . . . I don't watch a movie to see what happens - I watch a movie to see how the film makers tell what happens. I watch movies again and again that I've loved since I was a kid (I must have watched 1961's "Mysterious Island" 40 times) and I watch current favorites (like "Midnight Run" or "Brazil") several times a year.

    There is a writing film (comedy) that I watch over and over and can't get enough of.  It is Throw Momma From The Train, with Billy Crystal and Danny Devito.  I love that movie!  Probably the reason I like it so much, besides the comedy, is the fact that the main character is a struggling writer who finds success in the end.

    For me, I guess it would be Zulu. I have no idea how many times I've watched it all the way through. I've watched portions of many other movies over and over.

    The last few years, I'd have to say "Brother Where Art Thou", a movie I did not want to see at all the first time. A lot of singing set in the south in the Thirties? I don't think so. A friend gave me the DVD and made me watch just the first 15 minutes and I was hooked. And some of the singing was the best part.

      I can't believe that someone else likes Zulu that much! I watch it over again about once a year. I remember seeing it in my hometown theater in the Midwest when I was a child. I was in 5th grade and very much into Africa then.

      me too with the O'Brother where art thou...  at the theater I actually opted for Stallone's "Driven" over it.  That was a bomb.  O' Brother is another very well written piece which is unexpected coming from the Farley brothers. Just a good movie!

    As a kid, I got stuck with Robin Hood and The BodyGuard. Not sure why.
    I don't seem to remember being in love with Kevin Costner but I probably watched these 2 movies hundreds of times!

      . . . have you ever seen the real Robin Hood, from 1938?

    Good Will Hunting. Robin Williams’ performance was amazing. The quality of the script for such unknown actors at the time is pretty remarkable too. A great underdog story.

    I find that life gets pretty, real sometimes.  Whenever it does I find myself watching Notting Hill.  It's not what you would call a Classic I don't suppose but it is really masterfully done.  I suppose that it isn't for everyone but the writing is really amazing.  I love the dialogue and the acting is spot on for pretty much everyone.  If anyone misses the mark at all it would be Julia Roberts but truthfully she's almost a side note in the Love Story.  The real story is the life of a simple man and his simple friends that is so Wonderfully elegant in it's friendships and nuisances that even the most famous and glamorous long for a way in.  It's a movie with a message that is so nicely woven into its fabric that you have to watch it 100 times before you realize its effect on you.

    Married with children. I have been watching for 15 years. I still laugh Al Bundy the shoe salesman. Luckily, I can find it in youtube and hulu

    I would have to say "Grease" with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.  It was popular when I was in high school and we would go as a group.  Also, "Steel Magnolias" because it is so telling of a strong Southern woman.  I love so many of the quotes "Looks like two pigs fighting under a blanket" "You are too twisted for color TV" Pink is my signature color"
    Another favorite is "Moll Flanders" with Robin Penn, Morgan Freeman, and Stockard Channing.
    The Talented Mr. Ripley with Matt Damon is not what you would expect.
    I think these films, even though they are so diversified, show humanity in all of its forms-good and evil plus how we all want to be loved and accepted.

    "Casablanca." I have watched it every time I have flown to or from Morocco on Air Mauroc. Sometimes more than once each way.

    I love watching Bogart movies. "Casablanca," "Key Largo," "African Queen," "To Have and Have Not".... (Not "Treasure of the Sierra Madre." for some reason, I never have liked it.). I like his timing, delivery and that I can almost feel the heat between him and the female lead.

    Of course, I also have watched the Michael Redgrave version of "The Importance of Being Earnest" dozens of times. I love Wilde's humor and this film is beautiful, settings, dress and people. Even facial expressions are exquisite.

    The ending stopped surprizing me after the the first dozen or so times, though.

    I 'm not slow.

    I could rewatch Homeward Bound, the Incredible Journey and Home Alone I and II without getting tired of them.
