Don't think it needs to be "an important film". Why does it have to?

CountessDracula · 15/02/2007 23:02

Well it clearly doesn't

read the nominations!

It doesn't have to be important twoisenoughmum, but I happened to be of the opinion that if you were only going to watch 1 film imo I'd like it to be an important movie, one that taught me something, made me think etc.

pesme · 16/02/2007 20:11

well in that case it has to be 'dude wheres my car'

PersonalClown · 16/02/2007 20:11

Rocky Horror Picture Show!!
Just to sing very loudly and laugh at all the crude jokes.

Donk · 16/02/2007 20:13

Another vote for Rabbit proof Fence - and one for Dr. Strangelove!

tiredemma · 16/02/2007 20:13

For seriousness- shawshank redemption.

For fun- dumb and dumber.

For drooling- anything with Mr Depp in.

bobsyouruncle · 21/02/2007 13:51

Tillyboo, National Velvet is my favourite film ever - and everyone I say that too looks at me like I'm nuts!?

wartywarthog · 21/02/2007 13:53

sea, just the way he worked out what he wanted, formulated his grand plan and followed it through no matter how long it took. eg. the library books. just quietly in his own way. and the music he played over the loud speaker was heart breaking. even though he was wrongly accused he wasn't embittered or angry. just got on with it. i loved it! as a result of that i also thought about what i wanted, executed my grand plan and got the results i wanted! never looked back.
