Just curious what others most watched films are. I don’t mean something you had to watch over and over with a young child or walked through a room and it was on. I’m talking about movies you chose to watch repeatedly (as a kid or adult). VCRs were not very common when I was a kid so I didn’t get to do a lot of repeated viewing until I could buy my own at 18. Since I haven’t had a TV signal in a long time, all my viewing is on recordings and mostly limited to my small video library.
I’m guessing a bit at the numbers but they are pretty close:
Star Wars (The original) I know its well over 100 times (some of that is for research! )
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (It never gets old for me, I’m smiling just thinking about it.) Probably close to 100 views (1st time I was 8 )
ME: hey dad what’s oral sex?
DAD: ask your mother.
Kick-Ass This film really sparked my imagination, perhaps the best comic adaptation I’ve seen. I watched it a lot for researching costumes and story details to build our fan-film scripts off of, but often would get so caught up in watching that I forgot to look at details and had to rewind. I’m guessing at least 75 viewings.
The Incredibles It’s utter magic! I can put this on no matter what age a guest is and it pulls them into the story. I spent 2 hours in the “kids” room at Christmas one year instead of drinking with the “grownups” watching it with the nieces and nephews, 50+ viewings.
Monkey Business (1932?) Probably my favorite Marx Brothers film, Zeppo’s best performance, 50+ viewings.
