What movie have you watched the most times?

Lets say more than 20 times, and you would watch it again.

I would have a hard time picking the ONE movie I have watched the most times. Here are some of them:

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,
The Sting,
The Godfather,
The Big Lebowski,
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles,
Christmas Vacation

There are others to add to my list I am sure.

When I was a kid and the first Star Wars came out, I saw it a ridiculous number of times. Somewhere between 70-90 times.

The second Star Wars I only saw maybe 30 or so times.

I’ve watched Bladerunner at least 30-50 times. It’s hard to say, because it’s one of those movies I still watch every so often, but I don’t keep track. Who knows? I could have seen that movie 100 times over the years.

More than 20? Let’s see…

Fight Club
American History X
Requiem for a Dream
Air Force One
Clear and Present Danger
Animal House
Wonder Boys
Grosse Point Blank
High Fidelity
Best in Show
Super Troopers
Shawshank Redemption
Stand By Me
Dazed and Confused

I watch a lot of the movies I own over and over and over. Especially now that I can’t afford to buy any new ones. It’s hard finding a part-time job in a not that large city with more than 25,000 young people…

Wayne’s World

I watched it so often I wore out the videotape, and had to buy another one.

When you have kids, sometimes the movie you have watched the most times is not one you even actually like.

2001 for me - also the one I’ve seen most often in theaters. Twice in cinerama when it came out, I sat through it twice in a row in a theater during the first run (this was when you could stay after the movie was over) at least twice at campus shows, and once at an sf convention. Not to mention countless times on VCR and DVD.

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Jeremiah Johnson

Same here.

I’ll watch some movies like Pulp Fiction, Boogie Nights, or Magnolia whenever they are on but still must have only seen them 7-8 times or so.

Rocky Horror is the only movie I know for sure I’ve seen over 20 times… Probably 100+.

Not counting RHPS (more of a social gathering than a movie viewing–at least for me), I’d have to go with Young Frankenstein . It’s just one of those movies I never tire of.

A close second would be 2010–the Year We Make Contact .

Hmmm, more that 20 times? I guess this can be over a long period, can’t it?

Richard III
It Happens Every Spring
Killer Klowns From Outer Space
The Wizard of Oz
No Time for Sergeants

Star Wars IV (The first Star Wars movie)
Moby Dick
Forbidden Planet
Alexander Nevsky
The Third Man

Excluding Rocky Horror, which would easily come out in the lead, it’s either Room With A View, which I haven’t kept count but estimate I’ve seen about 100 times, or Fellowship of the Ring, which I have kept count and know I’ve seen exactly 100 times.

Groundhog Day.

I don’t know why. I don’t have strong feelings about it one way or the other, but for some unknown reason, I am compelled to watch it every time I find it on TV. And, for an equally unknown reason, that happens on a fairly regular basis.

I have no idea how many times I’ve actually seen the thing, but I would be surprised were it not above 20 yet.

There are many movies I’ve watched over and over again. But there was a period during my sophomore year of high school that I watched Mallrats at least once every day. In my life I’ve definitely seen it over 100 times, maybe even 150, but it’s hard for me to estimate something like that.

Groundhog Day is one that I’ve seen almost 100 times, and I’ve never owned it. It was just on cable so much, and I watched it every time it was on. Now in college a friend has it and we watch it often. One night we even watched it twice in a row.

I don’t keep count, but there are a few movies that I know almost by heart. Is it okay to include times when I didn’t sit through the whole thing but watched favorite bits?

Wizard of Oz
Lord of the Rings
Saturday Night Fever
The Ten Commandments
The Searchers
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Thing (both versions)
Dracula (the Bela Lugosi version)

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory ('70’s version)
Wizard of Oz

The Princess Bride
Desk Set
African Queen

(and no, I don’t have kids)
Empire Records
Casino Royale (the one with David Niven & Peter Sellers)
any/all of the Guest/McKean/Shearer ouvre
Pirates of the Caribbean
A League of Their Own
there are probably many more - I’ll post again when I think of them.

“Repo Man.”

Let’s go eat sushi. And not pay.

Monty Python’s Life of Brian
The Princess Bride
Star Wars

And a bunch of kid’s movies that adults also like, like Toy Story, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, etc. For a while, they were all in constant rotation until my daughter got old enough to want to expand her horizons.

At least 10+

The Matrix
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Monty Python’s Life of Brian
Office Space
Citizen Kane
At least 20+ times

Star Wars (the entire OT)
The Princess Bride
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Rankin/Bass animated Hobbit
Pulp Fiction
At least 50+

Don’t be a Menace to South Central while Drinking your Juice in the Hood
South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
At least 200+ (This is a rough estimate but probably an under estimate because I know I watched this movie almost every night for about a year and a half and many times before and since then)

The Stoned Age

Most of these (with the exceptions of Snatch and The Matrix) are several years old because I just can’t bring myself to watch a movie more than once anymore no matter how much I like it. I’ve seen each of the Lord of the Rings movies three times and I’ll probably see Revenge of the Sith a second time when it comes to DVD but those are very rare exceptions.

I always get a kick from the Kirk Douglas/Tony Curtis movie team.Spartacus and The Vikings.
I saw the 7 Faces Of Dr. Lao when I was a kid and I never miss it when it’s on tv

Add the original Vacation to my “20+” list. I’m not even a huge fan of it anymore (though it is one of the few 80s comedies that can still make me laugh), but it was on tv awhile back and I realized that I could still recite almost the entire movie, line for line, from watching it all those times way back when.

I didn’t even look at my DVDs when compiling this list so I’m sure I forgot a few others as well.
