Caddyshack - I haven't played a round of golf since this movie came out that I haven't quoted at least one line from it. I even once hired someone based partly on the fact that they quoted an obscure line from the movie during the interview.

In spite of its rather lengthy running time, Gladiator is my choice. However, like many others, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Caddyshack as well.

Certainly the aforementioned Shawshank Redemption and Caddyshack are good choices...

Another two that I will never, ever change from if I find them on are Hoosiers and Remember the Titans!!!

"What's Up Doc". The only good thing Streisand has ever done, and she can't even understand why people like it.

Actually, I could name about three Bogdanovich movies for this category..."Targets" and "Texasville" would be the others.

I have two:

Red River. John Wayne and Montgomery Clift. (and Walter Brennan is awesome in it!). I have seen it many, many, many times. I think is much better than "The Searchers", although I have seen that a lot as well.

The Longest Day. I have seen it literally hundreds of times and still catch something new from time to time. Wayne is fantastic and we also have Eddie Albert's best performance and early Sean Connery, robert Wagner, Jeff Hunter..
Man, it's an awesome movie.

I'd have to go with A Few Good Men and Office Space. Neither are my absolute favorite (though both are close), but they're on so much that sometimes it seems like I do watch them once a week.

I might've said Rocky IV a couple of months ago, but I believe I actually DID watch it every week and I actually tired of it. (And I didn't know what to think of that, so... I guess I didn't like it too much none, either.)

Right now I'd have to go with Goonies. I used to just love it for the kids, but now I just laugh like crazy during every scene with Robert Davi and Joey Pants. I don't think I could ever tire of that one.

There's a long list of movies that fit in the "when they come on TV, you just can't turn them off for some reason" category.

A few that fit that category:

A Few Good Men
The Shawshank Redemption
The Naked Gun
Ferris Beuller's Day Off
Top Gun
Batman
Liar Liar
Back to the Future
Pretty much ANY sports movie...

But if we're talking "one" movie that I could watch every week & never tire, the answer has to be "Blazing Saddles"!!!

Braveheart.

Although with my kids, I do actually watch Monsters Inc and Ice Age more than once a week, and am ok with it.

Oh boy! That movie was SOOO funny. I loved the commercial they did during the President Carter's speech...

"What the hell is this! Is this a 1974 Mercedes 450SL for $24,000? That's too fucking high." (And they blow the car up!)

-and of course, the follow-up to this was...-

"I heard this explosion and I rushed out. I couldn't tell what was going on. I saw a car over there in flames and all these strange little guys with towels on their heads, and weird little goatees, running around yelling 'Ayatollah, Ayatollah!' Then they all got in a car and drove away. I guess it was Iranian students out to discredit the American way of life."


That movie was pretty damn funny.

Uh, since NO ONE could only say ONE movie, I guess I'll add another as well.

Weird Al's UHF. That movie was freaking hilarious. It even stole from THE TREASURE OF SIERRA MADRE (1948) and didn't sound stupid...

"Badgers? We don't no stinking badgers!"
-or, even better...-
"Today, we're teaching poodles how to fly."

This movie also introduced us to a little known actor by the name of Michael Richards, who went on to become Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld.

    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.

BOO! (Oh, and I disliked Pulp Fiction, so I guess we're even.)

I have to say I watch The Usual Suspects all the time.

Dude, you crazy. Clue is awesome.

I'd find some way to edit together all 3 original Star Wars movies, since I couldn't pick just 1.

The Hunt for Red October. Lots of great lines ("Russians don't take a dump, son, without a plan.") and plenty of opportunities to watch since it seems to be on either TBS, Spike TV, or USA every weekend.

Of more recent films, Ocean's Eleven. Just fun and you always notice a new aspect of the plan with each viewing.

The explanation is simple = Max Casella

He's golden in everything he's in.

For me it's The Dirty Dozen.

Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, Telly Savalas, John Cassevettes, Jim Brown, Donald Sutherland, Ernest Borgnine and George Kennedy killing Nazis. Robert Ryan plays the complete asshole to perfection.
