I can't rank them in order of favorite, but I LOVE:
** Planes, Trains, & Automobiles
** City of Angels
** Ghost
** Knight's Tale
** John Hughes' movies

I know that when people start posting, I will be saying to myself: "OOOHHH I like that one too."
I was just now thinking that with each of these movies, there is a story as to why I like them ... weird.

...What dreams may come...

My 90+ y/o Grandmother really wanted to see this when it first was in the movie theatre, although she kept calling it [u]WET/u] dreams may come.
To this day, I see this movie and smile ... got to love the Grandmas.

Speaking of Grandmas .... "Face it, girls, I'm older and I have more insurance."

BTW ~ ~ I love this thread, as I am putting some of these movies in my NetFlix queue (lol)

My top five watch list is:

Day After Tomorrow
Lord of the Rings ( all three)
The Generals Daughter
Double Jeopardy


Honorable mention:
Ever After
High Crimes

These are the movies we watch the most and not necessarily my favs. I could never only pick five, there are just to many genres and so many great films.
