What movie have you seen more times than any other movie? How many times have you seen it? Were you forced to watch it that many times? Do you know almost, if not every, line in the movie?
I've seen the Star Wars Trilogy 23 times that I can recall. It never loses its magic.

i must have watched shawshank redemption at least 20 times in the past few months alone. they kept playing it over and over again on AMC , TBS, and TNT. i have seen first blood and death race 2000 so many times i've lost count. and an ex- girlfriend of mine forced me to watch that gilbert grape movie quite a few times. it wasn't hilariously funny...but it was haha funny as far as comedies go.

ID4. 100,000,000 times. I liked it although it's more than a bit too all-American for my current taste. But it has good action and I still enjoy it . I could say EVERY line along with the movie (but I stopped doing that after the first lynching)
Now it's SW calssic and LOTR. Lost count at twelve, but it's at least double.

Independence Day....I just hired it out again and watched it twice....I used to own it and watched it over and over....Saw it at the cinema twice as well....
I just like the first half hour or so when the alien ships arrive on Earth.... evil laugh

I could run through it line for line in my head I reckon....checkmate  big grin

Also I've seen "Friday" a shitload of times and the same goes...."Break yo' self fool....!!"

People actually watch ID4 more than once? Voluntarily?

Anyway, I must've seen "Spaceballs" about a million times by now. Wore one VCR-casette down, now I have it on a shiny DVD. I can quote entire scenes from the movie.

I know a guy who's so completely lost in "Bodyguard" (yes, that "Bodyguard" with Whitney Huoston and Kevin Costner) he's worn down three videotapes from watching it. It's anybody's guess how long tape #4 will last.

You're not a real fan if you can't quote the entire movie. Like me and me best friend with "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". Get the two of us together and we'll act out the whole film for you.  wink I've watched "Zoolander" and "Raising Arizona" a bazillion times each too, and can quote lots of stuff from both.

I've probably seen the original Star Wars movies more times than anything else, but other movies I've seen lots of times include the Indiana Jones movies, The Princess Bride, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, some of the Star Trek movies, Dr. Strangelove, and Army of Darkness.

I think now I'm into my 10th viewing of The Breakfast Club. It just gets better and better everytime. It's got to the point now where I can quote it   smile Same thing goes for Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Back To The Future. I've also watched The Matrix quite a lot too. I've watched The Little Mermaid a lot too, and I think I watched Robin Hood 7 times in a row once.

Not films for me, but there are documentary tapes I have which I used to be able to quote from start to finish flawlessly. Indeed my brother and friends used to test me by putting the sound off, letting me quote (with sound effects), then rewinding and checking if I was correct. The film I've sen most often is a tie between Evolution and Home Alone which I've seen 5 or 6 times each.

I'm one of those people who can do multiple viewings of stuff I like, and still enjoy it like the first time I saw it.

There's so much stuff I love to watch over and over.  Too much to name, really.

Jeez, this one I'm ashamed of. I've seen "Fire Down Below" about a thousand times. My father loves it! I can't stand Sagal movies.

Movies I did like, I've seen Tron hundreds of times and its a tie with Titan AE.

I'm trying to get a fucking job.REALLY REALLY trying.I'm sorry about that I'm just kinda sensitive on that issue;my parents REALLY do hate me which I couldn't give a shit less about but in that hate they refuse to let me get my goddamned license and around here I can't exactly walk any-fucking place.

Back on-topic.

And that isn't half the list it should be, and I've only seen Kill Bill 4 times. DAMN IT! 4 times. (So far...untill my beloved treasure; The Kill Bill Vol.1 dvd comes out.)

Let's see. I have seen a few flms quite a few times but there are some that i have watched far more than others.

Transformers the movie (I've watched it since I was very young and still enjoy it today)
Tenchi Forever (Best of the series in my opinion)
Star Wars orginal Trilogy
Indiana Jones
The Nightmare before Chirstmas

These would be the ones that spring to mind but there are a few I will watch more when I get them (Spirited Away for example)

Most people I know just call it "Don't Be A Menace...", that's short enough to be workable.

The Commitments was my life when I was 11. I watched it for a whole year, every time I sat down to watch TV I watched that. I wanted to be Natalie, the dark-haired backing singer. Just bought the second soundtrack CD yesterday, oddly enough. I've hardly watched that movie at all since I was 11, and I want the DVD now. And I saw it for €8.99 . . .mine!
