Everyone has a favorite film they love to watch and when other people find out, they look at you like you're a moron. THAT'S the film I'm looking for here.

For me, it's gotta be NEWSIES!

I can't explain it, there's just SOMETHING about that damned film that makes me pop it into the DVD player whenever I'm not doing something. I like the music, the acting is decent, a true to life story (though slanted by hollywood standards), and did I mention the music? I do find myself singing along at times, when I know there's no one around to ridicule me for it.

I have, luckily, only told a few people I know in 'real life' about this, and that's because they either lived with me and caught me watching it, or they wanted to borrow a movie of mine and accidently found it hidden between in my 'musicals' section of my DVD collection.

Well, what's YOUR hidden shame... er, I mean guilty pleasure?

Raiders of the Ark. Great plot, action, humor...well just about everything. Awesome flick.

Michael Keaton in "Johnny Dangerously" is a close second for me.

Clue from 1985. I have watched it so many times and I never tire of it. Hell, if the butchered version of it is on Comedy Central, I'll still stop everything and watch it.

The Truman Show is the only movie entering the Clue territory recently.

I don't re-watch movies nearly as much as I used to.

That said, Bottle Rocket.

Army of Darkness, Clerks, The Breakfast Club, and Weird Science.

If I was left with either of those four, I'd be a happy camper.

Garden State, Office Space, probably Rushmore and almost certainly The Incredibles.

Back to the Future and The Paper are probable.

Wait, you said ONE.

Let's go with Garden State.

Dr. Strangelove. If I get tired of the jokes, I just look at the composition of the shots. That up-from-the-floor shot of General Jack D. Ripper when he begins lecturing Mandrake on Purity of Essence and bodily fluids is absolutely gorgeous. And Sterling Hayden clamped on the cigar and spitting smoke out of the side of his mouth look great. Also, any scene with Slim Pickens, just because Kubrick didn't tell him that the movie was a satire. So there he is, dead set on goin' toe-tah-toe with that russkies in n'clear combat, absolutely 100% patriotically in to it.

Young Frankenstein, since I always find a new wrinkle in it I didn't see the time before.

EDIT: And I'd be terribly remiss if I didn't also mention Caddyshack.

Yankee Doodle Dandy, but Shawshank is a very close second.

TBS/AMC plays Shawshank so often that Mrs. t-o-n and I refer to it as the "Shawshank channel"

Its a Wonderful Life deserves honorable mention.

"Team America: World Police." Can't tell how many times I've rewatched that DVD since I got it a few short months ago. Also saw it in the theater three times. The "Naked Gun" films used to have that effect on me, but not as much these days.

And I don't know if this counts -- but my son watches the first five (well, episodes 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6) "Star Wars" films EASILY twice a week. So whether I like them or not anymore, I'm watching 'em.

On television, I tend to drop everything whenever "The Shawshank Redemption", "A Few Good Men" and "A Time To Kill" come on (usually on TBS).

Thats the ONLY movie that I ever walked out on in my life. I thought it sucked a billion ways.

For my money, the one movie I can watch no matter what is Pulp Fiction. Just love the dialog.
Clerks is a close, close second, and Hoosiers.

"Used Cars". Seriously under-appreciated comedy classic, with an Oscar worthy performance from Toby the Beagle.
