Five Movies I Would Watch Once a Year for the Rest of My Life

Inspired by @mindy
  1. 1.
    Overboard
    Vintage Goldie and Kurt, slumming their way through this gem of a movie. "A falsetto child?"
  2. 2.
    Heart and Souls
    Robert Downey Jr. as a likable narcissist with an all-star cast of guardian angels who need his help. Be ready to have "Walk like a Man" stuck in your head for days.
  3. 3.
    You've Got Mail
    The writing. The chemistry. The old school AIM. If you've seen it, there's really no explanation needed.
  4. 4.
    Pride and Prejudice
    Usually I'm a purist when it comes to book-to-movie conversions, but I didn't mind the liberties taken within the Kiera Knightly version. The scene where she and Matthew MacFadyen meet at dawn is romance and drama and simplicity and perfection.
  5. 5.
    Dirty Dancing
    Can't help it. We've all carried a watermelon at one time or another, and this movie is the best kind of nostalgia.

    Honorable Mentions:
    Working Girl, Almost Famous, Philadelphia Story, Elf, The Jerk, While You Were Sleeping, Best in Show, When Harry Met Sally, and Legally Blonde
