What movie could you watch over and over and still enjoy?
Many years ago I would’ve had no trouble answering this question because there were, indeed, two movies that I watched several times over with my best friend at the time, Keisha. They were Clueless and My Best Friend’s Wedding. We watched those two movies so often, we knew most of the dialogue by heart and would take turns saying the lines along with the characters. Pretty Woman is also in that category. I’ve seen it too many times to count.
Since then, there’ve been several movies I’ve watched many times:
Gone With The Wind, Selena, Love Actually, Titanic, Serendipity, When Harry Met Sally and Amelie – I’ve watched Amelie too many times to count that I could probably just tell you the original words, in French, even without the screen being on, which is also probably why if I had to choose one movie to watch on repeat, I wouldn’t have to choose it.
But if I had to choose a single movie to watch over and over again, I’d pick Big Fish. It’s a new-to-me movie. I’ve seen it twice. But it has such a layer of complexity and whimsy that I think I could watch it many times and still find something new to enjoy each time.
What’s your one movie that you’d watch over and over?
