List RulesVote up the movies that you've already 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 bored and never get tired of. I'm sure you have the same movies. They may be your favorite movie that you own or they're just that good. I'll start with the movies I need to watch over and over again 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?
