Call me corny but my answer has to be "The Princess Bride".

@boomerang,
I like corny! I've seen Pretty Woman at least a dozen times.

There are at least a dozen movies I watch over and over. Westerns, musicals, comedies - My favorite after Grapes of Wrath is Born on the Fourth of July. Both films tie in with my and my family's history, the likely reason. Likewise Midnight Cowboy.

I agree with Chai re To Kill a Mockingbird. It's the title that popped instantly to find.

Feel-good movies, I go with Breaking Away and Babe. I also loved the Thin Man series.

For movie-movies, gotta go with the Godfather. Maybe the Maltese Falcon. Still thinking.

The Big Chill beats Blade Runner slightly.

@JPB,
Pink Panther came out when I was about 19 or 20. (The one with Peter Sellers)
I might not react the same way now that I'm a million years older. It just hit me right for the time.

Also, that was when they would show Pink Panther cartoons in the theaters. I guess I'm just goofball at heart.

Pulp Fiction without a doubt on my list. So is 2001, A Space Odyssey.

I was never a huge Peter Sellers fan. I did like Dr Strangelove.

How can you NOT love Babe! Very Happy Just don't tell the star pig that you frequent Nancy Lee's Pig Heaven at a regular basis Roberta if you meet him and want to get an autograph. Wink

I've mentioned five movies...and, considering the title of the thread, feel I must narrow it down to one. So here goes:

2001, A Space Odyssey.

@tsarstepan,
Rome, Open City - Rossellini directed/Sophia Loren
Christ Stopped at Eboli, Francesco Rosa directed, from a book by Carlo Levi (I've read the book too, glutton I am).
Night of the Shooting Stars, by the Taviani Brothers (I just looked it up, Pauline Kael was crazy about it)
