    The worst movie post got me wondering. What movies can you not resist watching over and over when they are on TV?

    I can never resist:

    Legally Blonde
    Independence Day
    The Fugitive
    Clear and Present Danger/Patriot Games

    Ever After

    Bridget Jone's Diary

    Sex and the City DVDs

    Moulin Rouge

    My parents always seem to have 'You've Got Mail' on, so it's grown on me as well.

    I've seen Ever After so many times...it's in my top five favorite movies. I can't help it. :)

    It seems like I've watched You've Got Mail on television a hundred times. I want her book store.

    If I'm flipping and find The Shawshank Redemption on, I will watch it. Every time.

    I like to show Mean Girls to my AP Psych students after the AP because it speaks a lot towards cliques and other psychological phenomena such as manipulation (both intentional and unintentional) and groupthink.

    Yes, A Christmas Story and Mrs. Doubtfire! Princess diaries! Holes! freaky Friday! Uncle Buck - love that one and just saw it recently.

    This is fun. My most wicked secret is my inability to resist Legally Blonde, since I wouldn't let my 12 year-old daughter watch it when it came out. But I cannot stop watching it if it is on TV!
