    Which movie have you watched the most times? Why have you watched it more than once?

    Probably The Godfather (Godfather I). It never gets old, and I've enjoyed introducing it to each of my kids as they've gotten old enough to watch it.

    There are many movies I have seen several times but if I were to guess which one I have seen the most it probably would have been "An Officer and a Gentleman". In my opinion it's about a lost soul who learns to love and trust again after feeling abandoned.
    As you are probably aware Richard Gere is the main character. His mother committed suicide, his father was in the navy and preferred to be his friend rather than his father who also tells him he is not cut out to be an officer. Gere learns to look out for himself and never let anyone get close in order to protect himself. His drill sergeant becomes the surrogate father role model he never had, his best friend and the girl he dates teaches him how to care again. By the end of the movie his invisible walls come tumbling down.
    The final scene where he walks through a dirty machine plant dressed in his Navy white uninform and picks up the unsuspecting girlfriend to carry her out of the building while Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes sing "Up Where We Belong" is one of those rare moments where both men and women are satisfied with the ending of a movie. It's a classic in my opinion. :-)

      Thanks for providing everyone with a great synopsis of the movie. Those readers who haven't seen the film will especially appreciate it.

    Movies that I never get tired of watching over again I think I watch because there is some part of the movie that moves me, inspires me or matches the mood that I am in. 
    One example is the movie The Shawshank Redemption.  I never tire of watching it.  But I find that the times I have decided to watch it yet again, I just really needed to be inspired again about hope and determination.  That's just my opinion though.

    Well - it's not just one movie, but all of the James Bond movies.  I watch them over and over and never get tired.  Drives my husband bonkers because he will watch a movie and never watch it again.  I have probably seen them all 20 - 30 times.

    I've seen the original "RoboCop" countless times over the years, because it's my favorite movie of all time. I never get tired of it.

    Other favorites that I've seen a bunch of times... "Airplane!" (still funny no matter how many times I see it!), the original "Star Wars" trilogy, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," and the original "Halloween."

    Coming to America. I almost know the movie verbatim. It's still hilarious 25 years later. At that time Eddie Murphy was at his peak & his talent was on full display. He played at least four characters in the film. It just has so many classic scenes.

    I have many that I watch over and over again,
    Pillow Talk - love the 60's romantic comedy, reminds me of my youth

    Star Trek; First Contact - just love Star Trek and this movie

    While You Were Sleeping - a lovely fun romantic story

    RED - with Bruce Willis, a fast paced, adventure, romance with lots of humor as well.

    I don't know why I've watched it as much as I have, but the one movie I've seen more times than any other is Twister. Also, I know most of the movie The Lion King word for word. I'm strange. I know it.

    I'm not a big fan of watching movies over and over again. (but I will watch favorites frequently over the years). However, there are a precious few that I have watched hundreds of times without ever tiring of them.

    Star Wars (the original trilogy), because it has everything: romance, adventure, mysticism, aliens...

    I, Claudius (BBC mini-series) I'm a fan of the novel, and I love this series. The acting was superb, the story is intriguing. And it has John Hurt, my favorite actor.

    Rocky Horror Picture Show--I don't even know why I like this movie so much. But it always puts me in a good mood.

    Strange assortment, huh? These are my feel good movies. If I am going through a creative slump, watching one or all of these will usually give me fresh inspiration. They are like old friends that never fail me.

    I'm afraid to say that the movie that I've watched the most is Home Alone and Home Alone 2.  I'm not sure why, but I know that those 2 movies are my favorite. I still can watch them and laugh out loud.  It also puts me in the Christmas mood, since it's my favorite holliday.

    I had been watching "Wallace and Gromit" every week with my 6 year old son and both of us seems that get tired of it either. Interesting animation and good english for my son to learn. We also love to watch " Chicken Run" although I don't think the kissing hen and rooster is advisable for the kids to watch.

    I have watched one movie dozens of times and could watch it every day - Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986).

    The whale story and the time travel between the 2200s and 1986 are wonderful. Also, we see so many inventions from Star Trek actually being used today - we even have transparent aluminum now, just as in the 1986 movie. The scenes in the plexiglass factory with Scotty and Dr, McCoy are so funny that I laugh out loud each time I see them. Chekhov is mistaken for a "Russky spy." The hospital scenes are great. Spock learns to curse, almost - hilarious.  A woman gets to leave 1986 and go live in the 2200s as a research scientist. Spock "feels fine."

    The movie feels like "home" to me.

    Probably Die Hard. I've lost count of how many times I've seen that film since the late 80s. I still watch it every now and then, and it never fails to entertain.

    I remember when I cleaned up the VHS tapes with the intention of moving them out and replace the shelf with  CDs, I found a 1994 movie titled Forrest Gump. I got curious because the title is a little bit peculiar and I hadn't realized that it was actually a name. So I watched it. it was such an epic movie. It moved me in a way that I began rethinking the way i view love, and life in general. His endless love for Jenny, his friendship and loyalty to Bubba, his service in the military, how he inspired Lt. Dan after losing his legs in the war, how he touched the lives of the people who have known him...I would definitely never get tired of watching this movie. It was so inspiring and touching and heartbreaking and all. smile

    Ghost with Patrick Swayze. Just love this film. Mainly for the potters wheel scene.  I must have seen it about 20 times and I still want to watch it again.
