    If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, but got to choose how often you watched it (like you don't have to watch it every day) what would it be?

      Where Eagles Dare.
      I do  not mean it is the best of movies but the excitement and shert acting..... and the magnetic personality of Richard Burton

    "Terms of Endearment"
    an old movie, inside there are stories of real life with their humor, joy, sadness, love, trouble, death. Is one of my favorite movies,  one that I never get tired of looking

    That's interesting that more than one person would choose Terms of Endearment.  That movie makes me cry!!

    I'd give up watching television, sell my TV, get rid of my 3 dvd players, eliminate my entertainment center and turn my living room into a Pool room instead, with a regulation size 8' table, so I could better entertain myself, whenever not on computer working. lol

      That doesn't sound like a bad plan at all!

        At least my pool game would get some work in versus watching some of the 400 titles I have on dvd presently(including tv series(ghost whisperer, leverage, the mentalist, bones, angel, beauty and the beast(on vhs) and about another 400 titles on vhs. You were asking to choose only one.

        I have yet to find a movie I could watch that much, and feel my time could be better spent. lol

    The only movie I watch repeatedly, or more than others is RV with Robin Williams. It's not my favorite movie but it makes me laugh every time I see it so if I was stuck with one movie, it would have to be humorous.

    I love When Harry Met Sally.  I never get sick of watching that.

    The movie I would love to continue to watch would be Disney Anesthesia. Heart warming movie that I love the songs that were played on it.

    Oh what a nightmare to live without my movie collection! I would probably choose The Matrix, as science fiction movies are my first love.

    I would have to choose between Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring or Raiders of the Lost Ark. Please don't make me do that. :-)

      At least with Lord of the Rings, you'd have 3 hours worth of movie!

    It used to be "What About Bob"  we watched that one I don't know how many times and I still totally love it, but now I am in love with "Alice In Wonderland" and its lovely colors and funny-ness.

    My Favorite Wife with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. But if I were allowed a couple extra they would be Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House and The Philadelphia Story. Something about Cary Grant just does it for me .

      As korny as this may be - It would be Mama Mia....It's light, happy, loving, romantic, stars actually doing their singing. I'm a Streep fan as well as Brosnon - admiration to them for just "letting it go" - Would love to be part of the group dancing their way to the dock during "Dancing Queen"

    I love this post!!!  I love ALL the answers here, but you know what, I think I'd go with... (little drum roll please!)

      That one isn't bad, but it bothered me because it wasn't anything at all like the book.  The moral to that story is, "Don't read books and then see the movie."  Either read or see - don't do both.   smile

    Ahh that's a hard question!! I would choose The Lord of the Rings... but I could just read the book for that and be content with never watching the movies cause I like the books so much more (they're my absolute favorite).

    So I think I'm gonna have to go with The Crow. I could NEVER get sick of that movie. Soooo many great lines!!

    Believe it or not, Disney's "Enchanted".  I love that movie and have already watched it several times (with my ex-husband, who also laughs about the fact that loves a movie "aimed at six-year-old girls"  lol ).  It's harmless. It's funny.  It's got some cute songs and the one romantic song.  The scenery is either pretty or uplifting.  It's got a nice message.  (I have to admit I'm kind of sick of it at this point, but if I had to choose one for the rest of my life, that would it.)  I guess because it's just entertaining, and I'd be sick of watching the same serious story over and over.

      Enchanted is my pick too! I love it. I own it and could watch it again and again!

    Gosh. Only 1 movie is really hard! Can we have 1 movie in each genre, at least?

    I'm "shocked, shocked" that none of you have said Casablanca, my pick.

    Ha ha, Bibowen. That was on just the other night. Claude Raines' line "I'm shocked, shocked to see there's GAMBLING going on here!" has been stuck in my brain!

    Wizard of Oz because it marks the change from B&W to color, Shows Judy Garland at her best, has a happily ever after story, is one of the most quoted films.

    Although American Grafitti is my favorite film, I think my answer would be Forrest Gump.  The story is great
