-Tommy Boy
-Kung Fu Panda (all of 'em. Best of the bunch...the first one)
-Jurassic Park (just the first one. the others are just so so)
-Any Jackie Chan movie (best of the bunch...Rumble in the Bronx and First Strike...oh and Supercop. And all the Rush Hour's)

The Jericho Mile I haven't watched this one in decades, but all through my teens, it was my favorite inspirational movie to run my best, whether I won or not.
Ladyhawke The horse, Goliath, in this movie is majestic.
Napoleon Dynamite As a comedy-loving Idahoan, this has to make my list!
Shanghai Noon Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson. Recommended to me by one of my pastors years ago, it surprised me because it isn't what I'd think of as a pastor's pick. Nevertheless, it makes me laugh out loud every time.
Dead Man Even for Johnny Depp this is a weird movie; very different. The sound track is Neil Young, which fits the mood perfectly.
Rat Race Unlike most remakes (IMO) this one is better than the original (It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World).
Bug A film-festival awarded movie that follows a chain of events in the lives of a group of people after a kid steps on a bug.
Mask In a college illustration class, I was assigned the word "Anger". I drew it while I was watching this movie, and it turned out to be one of my all-time favorite pieces:

Meet the Parents Just plain hilarious.
Tapping my memory for the last one... A few in mind but I will pick
Oh Brother Where Art Thou Mah HAIR! Very entertaining movie.

Just saw a TV ad for The Incredibles 2, this summer.

Hope it is as great as the first one.
