Duck Soup - good choice notquitenglish! It's such a classic (and still socially relevant) movie! Everytime I think of the plot I am reminded of the current US government. Hmmmm...

Ambassador Trentino: I am willing to do anything to prevent this war.

Rufus T. Firefly: It's too late. I've already paid a month's rent on the battlefield.

My favourite films include:

The Great Escape
Schindler's List
Lawrence of Arabia
The Godfather
The Green Mile
Gone With The Wind
An American In Paris
Singing In The Rain
My Fair Lady
Life of Brian (of course!)
...and others too numerous to mention!

Cheers,
Michelle :)

P.S. I think the Tom Hanks movie you're thinking of is Forrest Gump, Christine!

Ooh now this is a hard one....

The Wizard of Oz - there's no place like home.

The Blues Brothers - We're on a mission from God.

The Colour Purple - Till you done right by me, everything you touch is gonna go bad.

There's probably a squillion more, but those three I can watch over and over without ever getting bored.

Cheers

Edward Scissorhands - Well, really ANY Tim Burton film! But this one is by far my favorite movie. I can relate to it on so many levels.

Brief Encounter (the 1945 version) - I've only seen it once, but certain images from it have stuck with me. I was mesmerized by this movie. It wasn't so much the story, but more the way it was filmed.

The Graduate - I probably don't need to say anything about this one.

You have opened up quite the can of worms asking me this question. I'll try to abridge my list:

--Anything Monty Python (Life of Brian, Holy Grail and Meaning of Life, in that order)
--The Usual Suspects. Fantastic film, Kevin Spacey is the best in that movie.
--Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I've seen this movie at least 200 times. It's a kid thing, really. I loved it when I was little, I still love it now.
--The Blues Brothers. The car chase scene alone makes it one of my favorites. The rest of the movie just makes it better.
--The Apartment. Such a cute movie.
--Some Like it Hot. C'mon, as I always say, "There's nothing funnier than a man in drag." Perhaps that's why I also love Monty Python and Kids in the Hall. Hmmm
--Heathers. I'm not trying to copy off Missi here, but I LOVE that movie. "What's your damage!?"
--American Beauty, Pulp Fiction, Office Space, etc.

OK, there many more, but that's all I'll put before I start writing a book.

Heathers was an interesting film Kristine...Jess loved that one!
Me, I would have to say The Full Monty, and not just cos it has "Monty" in the title!
I LOVE it. Anything Robert Carlyle in is pretty good!
Also love the Wayne's World movies..what a crackup!

Big, Ferris Buellers Day Off (and lots of those 80's comedies that I grew up with.)

The Graduate...

Oh wow!

You've all reminded me of some great movies. The car chase in The Blues Brothers is absolutely legendary (I was just telling Miss-M about it today!)

Ferris Buellers Day off is great fun - and I've always been in love with Alan Ruck as Cameron.

The Full Monty is a wonderful film, another one that I love to quote. "Fat is a feminist issue David." Tom Wilkinson is great - has anyone seen The Priest?

A Night To Remember is the film that made me a true Titanophile (saw it in school, have been hooked all all things Titanic since) but despite the Rose/Jack story, you can't beat James Cameron's Titanic for accuracy.

Thanks for reminding me of so many great films guys, my vcr is going to get a workout now!

Cheers
Kath
