I was fired from another job, friends :(

I took a position as assistant chef at the Atlanta IHOP. But I got canned last night when I tried to sneak out with a piece of kitchen equipment.

It was a whisk I was willing to take.

A Christmas Story

gravyfish said...

It's a toss up between Groundhog Day and Jackie Brown. My two absolute favorite films

Sand1 said...

The third man and random harvest. Tied.

A dumb idiot said...

Probably Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. We had it on VHS and didn't have cable and it's a fun movie. Or Leolo, the movie that made me fall in love with Tom Waits.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Casablanca

sandybrook said...

Slap Shot

Sagan said...

Jaws - tied - Close Encounters of the Third Kind - tied - JFK

I find myself putting any/all of these movies on while I'm doing stuff at home as 'comforting' background noise. Warped, I know.

Tie between goodfellas and casino. Mostly good fellas.

Don Kieballs said...

Half Baked. There was a period in the 90's that it was basically on a constant loop. That was shortly after I had smoking and my little squad and I just sat in my apartment smoking and laughing as the movie played on the tv. I do miss the days when I didn't have a tolerance.

NoNotThatBeth said...

Not counting the Lion King (which my then toddler demanded to watch at least once a day for nearly two years) I think it's a tossup between Princess Bride, Godfather I & II, and Independence Day.

Samantha Willow said...

Halloween, followed by Happy Gilmore. Don't judge.

sharoncat said...

Revolutionary road and Donnie darko.

spacecowboy78 said...

@ Spider - Nighthawks is so underrated don't you think? I was only 3 when it came out, but I first saw it at around age 11 or 12 and thought it was great. It's on regular rotation now when nothing is on.

Kno Won Uno said...

I don’t watch many movies multiple times, but i’d have to say Love Affair (1939) with Irene Dunn & Charles Boyer. It sparkles still.

Kno Won Uno said...

OMG, I have 4 grandchildren who also watched the Lion King at least daily.
We can probably recite all the dialogue, I know they can!

1. The Goonies

2. Splash w/Daryl Hannah, John Candy, Tom Hanks, Eugene Levy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-bw_1n5tJA


3. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun w/Sarah Jessica Parker & Helen Hunt

I still get stressed out about SJP making it to the TV Station in time for the dance competition.
And I used to think Helen Hunt was such a cool f+cking girl I wanted to be.
Her fashion was AMAZING.

I'm a cheeseball, but I still love this song from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

"Slow, Slow, Quick, Quick, Slow..."

Drizzleborn, Breaker of Beermugs and Mother of Squirrels said...

One of mine features a former child star with a tumultuous adolescence.

Favorite line: “Get the flies back!”

First one to guess the movie gets a...geez, I dunno.

AndrewBW said...

Some Like It Hot

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Only because FX reruns, when I still could watch television:

1. "Kiss of the Damned" (countless, basically every time it was I turned the TV on—especially when it's raining outside)
2. "W.E." (multiple times)
3. "Margin Call" (11–12 times)

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I LOVED Jack Lemmon as a woman in "Some Like It Hot". 🗽👩🏻🚕🍂💛

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Did I not use an en-dash there for the range? Fuck.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Oooooh I'm so obsessed in "Casablanca Memory" and it happened to me IRL with my last crush at the alumni event. I'm so triggered and huuuuuurrrrtt. Boohoo.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

@KWU: There's a guy on YouTube who knows how to recite all the lines on "Mean Girls". Really, really fast.

Amy said...

I have streamed All About Eve to fall asleep to probably literally hundreds of times (I love listening to Addison DeWitt's opening narration, it's now almost like an automatic trigger for my body to fall asleep to before he finishes). I'm kind of afraid Amazon might pull a Netflix and ask on Twitter why someone would stream the video of classic female backstabbing 749 times or whatever.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I think I enjoyed watching Salieri be butthurt in 1984's "Amadeus" a little too much. AHAHAHHAHH-AHAHAHHAHHAHAH.

CLASSYNOGIN ILR said...

Grease

Terry Teratoma said...

Probably "Halloween". That, or "Shrek".

Gail Banks said...

Also Basket Case.

And any Joan Crawford movie.

Cee Kay said...

The Rocky Horror Picture Show. But I watch A Christmas Story at least once every year now and I'm not QUITE as obsessed with Tim Curry as I used to be, so Ralphie and friends are slowly catching up.

Fairylights said...

It's a Wonderful Life, Star Wars a New Hope, and Sound of Music.

TC said...

I don't remember which I have watched the most but when I jog my brain these are the ones that come to mind that have watched the most

Dawn of the Dead 78

Phantasm
Animal House
Caddyshack
Neighbors (the 81 version, not the shitty one from a few years back).
Stripes
Goodfellas
The Deer Hunter
Casino
The Godfather 1&2
Scarface
Heat

TC said...

Spider Rico - Both Neighbors and Nighthawks are great underrated movies.

arbfuldodger said...

Goodfellas
Godfather I & II
Christmas Story
Airplane

Ablamj said...

My Cousin Vinny

zerooptions said...

Sonatine

Hayley said...

History of the World Part 1

Hands down favorite movie ever!

Other faves and re watches

Grease
Almost Famous
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Showgirls (no judging)

More Cowbell said...

PITCH PERFECT, first one, because my daughter wanted to watch it over and over and over. FINDING NEMO, because when my daughter was younger she wanted to watch it over and over.

The movies I've watched over and over by myself? ALL ABOUT EVE, CASABLANCA, and CHINATOWN.

Raging Bunnies said...

The Seven Faces of Dr. Loa.

Dont judge.

KittensRUs said...

The Shawshank Redemption. Never gets old.
Gone with the Wind
A Christmas Carol (Reginald Owen version only, not colorized)

I watch "Once Upon a Time in America" once a year. I also watch "Bad Santa" every christmas.

Robert said...

The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, Aliens, Roadhouse, Repo Man, Gone With the Wind, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, to name some...

Ligeia said...

Halloween (original), The Shinning, The Outsiders, The Lost boys, The Crow, willy wonka and the chocolate factory and edward scissorhands

Spider Rico said...

@Space Nighthawks HUGELY underrated - I believe they had it in for Sly who they considered a goofball after Rocky and Rocky 2. Rutger Hauer alone in Nighthawks should have garnished fantastic reviews. With world events now, we see Nighthawks was way ahead of it's time.

Spider Rico said...

2TC - I agree 1 million percent!!!

Moose said...

Night Of The Comet
Umbrellas of Cherbourg
King of Hearts
Days of Heaven

Back in the LATE 80S... BARFLY, DRUGSTORE COWBOY and REPO MAN...it was the only 3 movies wed watch, all my friends...we knew all the lines and would spit them out whenever an occasion arose that called for it...still to this day when we get together.

Gail Banks said...

Love Sid and and Nancy as well, but the ending was SOOOOO bad.

MovieBuff said...

Dirty Dancing would have to rank #1

You know HBO in the late 80s early 90s had movies on constant loops. Dirty Dancing was so good that I watched it a ton of times to the degree that it’s hard to watch it today. It was on Netflix and I may have watched it 2 times but it’s the movie I can just quote line for line.

MovieBuff said...

I gave #1 to Dirty Dancing but I think you’re correct with this movie. It has to be the movie I’ve truly watched the most amount of times through my life.

MovieBuff said...

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is an iconic movie with the best songs. I still sing them in the shower. Jeff and Janey forever.

Here is the best scene in the movie which is totally useless but I love it.

When she’s trying to teach Jeff to flip and they are in the the dance studio he does a great flip in practice and Janey in a G’d up way shrugs her shoulders and says “whooh”

I get goosebumps every single time without fail.
