14 (Ditto Ada)
11
10
8
7
6
4 (Another sad but fantastic WW2 movie)
3
2
1 (This one you have to watch just because Jim does a great Marlon Brando as the Godfather impersonation. And it won't be funny if you haven't seen the movie!) :)

they left off "gone with the wind" and "father of the bride". "dirty rotten scoundrels" might make my top 20, too. for the most part, you can keep the sad movies. there's enough of the that in the real world. saw "shawshank", don't want to see it again. and, i get all the "godfather" i need in "you've got mail".

word verification: lueestra. isn't that the stuff that they cook the "healthy" potato chips in that sentences the consumer to be tethered to a toilet?

i really need "top" to be narrowed down and more specific. top classics? favorites? top comedy? top drama?

i loved the Lion King more than Nemo.

Shawshank is a MUST SEE. Stephen King is a genius.
