My all-time favorite movie is Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story... I haven't laughed so hard at a movie like that since the first time I saw Good Burger. :lol:

"Welcome to Good Burger, Home of the Good Burger! Can i take your order?" -- I don't know where that came from, but is that in the movie..? I think i may have watched it, eventhough i don't remember..

Oh and I love pretty much most of the movies on Jeeters list, plus Transformers (all three), The Green Hornet, Knight and Day, Iron Man.. And most action/comedy movies..

I also loved the Transformer movies. I saw the second one twice, once in IMAX and once in the regular seats. However, I think the acting is pretty bad as well as the plot. But it's fun seeing 190 million dollar movies because of their explosions and junk.

WOW...I can't believe I forgot the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I'm so ashamed. I've seen those movies 1000000 times and I'm in the second book too! I'm very excited to see The Hobbit when it comes out. :D

Ratatouille is a GREAT movie. I wanna see that again. WALL-E was great at first, but I had to watch it over and over either with little kids or at school so that kinda killed it for me.

I never watch rom coms but I had to watch this one to see if it worked (after a complaint that it didn't). I liked it as well and I continued to watch it even though I didn't really have to. :oops: Doesn't make my non-existent Top 10 favourite movies list though...

Yeah... even the actors hated that movie; Bob Hoskins has said time and time and time again, that out of all the movies of his career, the one that he hated doing the most is SMB. Even John Leguizamo once wrote that both he and Hoskins would literally get themselves drunk every single night on the set just to get through the production. But I agree, it was awesome, strange, and VERY imaginative in a trippy sort of way; not to mention, you have to admit, for 1993, it was a bit ahead of its time (but in a good way).

You know what I've just realized? The 80s seem to be have been a big time for travel/road comedy movies. Just to name a few, you got the Sesame Street movie Follow That Bird, there's Pee-wee's Big Adventure, there's also The Chipmunk Adventure just to name a few... now that I think of it, I don't think those kind of movies are movies you get easily bored with, I think travel is of some interest to just about everybody; kind of like how Ken Levine & David Isaacs wanted to "travel" a little by Season Seven after seeing the same old sets over and over again for six years.
