I have to say my fave films is a rather eclectic mix! I adore girlie flicks like Beaches and Dirty Dancing, and the classics like Breakfast at Tiffany's and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Love all Quentin Tarantino movies (what can I say, I was a student when Pulp Fiction came out and it was kinda compulsory to love it!), adore Saturday Night Fever, but my all time favouritest of favourite films has to be Baz Luhrman's version of Romeo and Juliet! That bit at the end when Juliet comes to just before Romeo dies, but he's already taken the poison, so its too late...
aaaaaw some good films hvae cropped up, i have to say that "muppets christmas carol" is my fave, and yes i know the words and will always sing along, even though im not a big michael caine fan, but its my "happy" film, and will ALWAYS cheer me up, of course big monty python fan "life of brian" first then "holy grail" oooo does anybody remember "hairspray"? lmao film with ricky lake and divine? always makes me laugh! hasnt been on brit telly since the 80'-early90's but ive still got a very bad copy!
I absolutely love comedy so I have to say some of my favs are: Young Frankenstein (Gene Wilder kills me!!), Stir Crazy with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor (when they have Richard Pryor in the infirmary of the prison-it just cracks me up!!, Dracula, Dead and Loving It (leslie Neilson is great!), any of the Naked Gun movies.
Arsenic and Old Lace is great, too. Gary Grant is so suave. I like old black and white movies on rainy Sundays, just sitting on the couch curled up with someone and watching movies, is so much fun. I loved Pirates of the Caribbean (Johnny Depp is a great actor, basing his character on Keith Richards of the Stones!!!!)Don't laugh, I'm NOT a nerd, but I also love the Lord of the Rings series. Great cinematography in those movies. It didn't hurt to have Orlando Bloom in those movies either. ;-)
I watched White C h i c k s (I can't believe they won't let me put it without spaces!?) last night and nearly wet myself!!
While you were sleeping, with Sandra Bullock, is one of my all time favs.
Titanic, A Knights Tale, Sister Act, True Lies and City Slickers are great.
Comedy wise, The Pink Panther movies, with Peter Sellars, have me in absolute fits of giggles......brilliant.
Hey well of the lovey dovey film (which I'm guessing you mean as this is the romance forum!!!) then my top 5 are:
1 - Armageddon (love Bruce)
2 - Dirty dancing (love partick and the dancing!)
3 - Top Gun (Tom looks so hot!)
4 - Jerry Maguire (again tom is hot - but love it when he says "you complete me" - isn't it every womans dream to here a guy say those words to them and mean it?)
5 - Moulin Rouge (I love how it takes the mick out of love songs!!!)
Hmmmmm....this will be quite a list!
Truly, Madly, Deeply
Harold and Maude
The Color Purple
The Whale Rider (not porn!)
Fight Club (loveeeeeeeee this)
The Life of David Gale
Monty Python & Holy Grail
Bridget Jones Diary (1 & 2)
Singles (saw 12x at theatre)
and the one I can watch over and over ALL dang year long!
Hello all - some great choices there. But, as this is under the heading of 'Romance' for me it would have to be Truly, Madly, Deeply. That's what I call real love! and Alan Rickman is a god!
I watch all the Disney movies with my kids & I love them all. We love Harry Potter too.
Monty Python, Pretty Woman, 4 Weddings, Dirty Dancing, Saturday Night Fever.... the list is endless.

My all time favorite movie is Top Gun. I wish I could fly those planes! I also liked all the OLD Star Trek Classic Movies.
I'd like to get the Forever Knight DVD's. I just loved that show about the vampire cop when it was on TV. I liked the one movie with Robin Williams where he dies and tries to find his wife who committed suicide. Great graphics in that one, and in Ants. I like movies with good graphics as well as sci-fi/horror/vampire type stuff. Not much into comedy movies or sit-com TV shows. Favorite TV show is Law & Order SVU. More movies I like are Mr. Holland's Opus, and another one where Richard Dryfus is a dead pilot trying to keep his living girlfriend to himself. She crashes the fire-fighting plane into a lake and he saves her and lets her go on with her life. (Sorry, my memory is sometimes a bit of a sieve and I can't remember the names of the best ones, except Top Gun, of course!) I also like the classics ... A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th St., Gone with the Wind & Dracula.
let's see so many. tombstone, a few good men, christmas vacation, star wars, some star treks (khaaaaaannnn lol), phantom of opera (i prefer play but i gotta say the movie too cause i love the music), liar liar, waterboy, full metal jacket..oh i could go on and on..but that is a few off top of my head :)
Well, I have to agree with LonesomeDove, anything with Tom Hanks (that is not a war movie or features him playing a gangster) will get my full attention. I also loved him and Meg Ryan in "You've Got Mail".
A few more favorites are:
"Ballad of Naramaya" (obscure independent Japanese film that made me weepy).
"Eat, Drink, Man, Woman"
"The Wedding Party"
"The Joy Luck Club"
"When Harry Met Sally"
and many, many more. But the one movie that I cannot resist watching if I see it while flipping through channels is, "HALF BAKED".
