Movies I watch over and over

...and over again!

A neat idea started at The Burble; these are perennial favourites of mine. I'm the type of person who watches movies multiple times (usually, I'd prefer to watch a movie I've already seen than something on TV), but these are all-time favourites that I've watched so many times I can practically recite the lines. Yes, I realize that most of it's fluff; not all-time great movies, but that's the thing about favourites, at least, for me: they're comforting, safe, and like an old friend that you want to visit again and again.

  1. Breakfast at Tiffany's is a classic. But I think my favorite Audrey movie is Sabrina. I just love it. I can also watch The Quiet Man over and over again. And of course, for a good laugh, My Cousin Vinny is always a hit.

  2. You've forgotten one important movie................

    Now, I know what you think I'm going to say, and it IS a movie you can watch over and over again, but I won't say it.

    But I just saw a movie last week you would probably like, if you haven't seen it already. "The Apartment", with Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine. It was really good.

    P.S. Napoleon Dynamite.


  3. Aisby - ahhh.. I love Sabrina. Roman Holiday too. :)

    Shawn - what, no Sideways cracks?! ;)
    P.S. The Apartment looks really good, I've been meaning to watch it.

  4. I love almost all the Audrey movies. What about Robin and Marian (with Sean Conner)? And The Princess Bride is one I've watched multiple times too.

  5. Oops ... I meant to type Sean Connery there. Small typo.

  6. Y'know, I wasn't that crazy about Robin & Marian, which is surprising, because I like both of those actors! It's been years since I've seen it though, so maybe it's time to give it another try. :)

  7. Field of Dreams?
    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?
    Shawshank Redemption?

  9. cardozo - all good movies that I've seen several times, but not all-time favourites of mine.
