... Some Like It Hot...

LouMacca Tue 18-Sep-12 16:07:53

Oh Jammy it's a wonderful film, an absolute must smile

Aah, A Planes Trains and Automobiles! Great!

I don't know Life is Beautiful, is it very good indeed?

LouMacca Tue 18-Sep-12 09:43:32

Life is Beautiful
Shawshank Redemption
Usual Suspects
When Harry Met Sally
ET
Goodfellas
The Breakfast Club
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
This Is England
Toy Story 3

not in that order apart from no. 1

That's also a very good film hugandroll but not sure I would want to watch it time and time again (think those that made my list I've watched 3, 4 5+ times and would happily sit down to watch tonight if there was nothing on telly). Ghostbusters and Breakfast At Tiffany's were also close contenders.

Oh, and speaking as a self confessed film addict, I would say that there are some questionable choices here, but Cleo, The Goonies? Really?

hmmhmm

MrsWembley Mon 17-Sep-12 13:17:28

Oh my god, how could I have forgotten about The Railway Children (The Second Best Children's Film Ever)!

Still pondering on the rest of them...
