List Rules Movies that you've watched multiple times and continue to enjoy

There are some movies that I always stop at and watch if I see them on TV or I can put in the DVD player and watch when I'm board and never get tired of. I'm sure you have the same movies. They may be your favorite movie or they're just that good. I'll start and you add to the list. What movies - theatrical releases, made for TV, direct to video, holiday special, whatever - have the highest rewatch value for you?
