    Probably between 10-20 for A Hard Days Night, Help, and Easy Rider - soundtracks rule. ;)

    The Godfather & Part II
    The Bourne Identity/Supremacy/Ultimatum
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off

    Maybe not 100 times, but certainly more than any other movie.

    Dead Man.

    Stars Johnny Depp, directed by Jim Jarmusch with a (partial) score by Neil Young. It's not boring but works better than Ambien for putting me to sleep. A comfort film.

    Yeah that's a great film. I only saw it recently, so it hasn't had a chance to become regular viewing. Though I did watch it again about 3 weeks after my first viewing.

    Ghost Dog was also exceellent.

    Yup.

    Although... I worked in a Radio Shack, and we had "Back to the Future" on a VHS loop. On all day, every day. I must have seen it over 100 times, though never really watching it all the way through each time. Never got sick of it.

    For the most part, life is too short to watch a movie twice. Have two hours to be entertained... watch something different. Some writer/director/actors/studios spent thousands of hours and millions of dollars to put together 2 hours of fun... take the time to enjoy it, then get on with your life.

    That said.... I did see The Song Remains the Same in the theatre probably 20+ times.

    No, I mean literally over 100 times. I guarantee I've seen Star Wars IV V VI and I over 100 times each. Go big or go home.

    But really, Phantom Menace came out when I was in first grade and I couldn't get enough of it. Before that, I couldn't get enough of A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. The original trilogy is all I could watch on my family's cross country trip from Michigan to California and back (VHS tapes in a big heavy portable TV with a 10" screen) and I probably saw each movie once every couple days on that trip alone. And I've seen all of them a bunch of times since then.

    What can I say, it's a great story that's visually stunning and has perfectly tailored musical scoring.

    These are movies that I will watch whenever they are on. A Christmas Story was on last night, 101 times now I guess.

    Arrgh! A Christmas Story has got to be my most watched. Not that I seek it out to watch, just that it runs in marathon on the holidays and alway seems to be tuned to on my TV.

    Back to the future. Never tire of that film, comes on tv multiple times each year and always end up seeing it.

    Crispin Glover is incredible.

    One of the best things put on celluloid and also one of the rare exceptions where the movie was far better than the book.

    When I was younger and poor, and lived out in the boonies (ie, no tv reception). I had a tv and vcr with 3 movies, watched them constantly.

    Lone Wolf McQuade
    Gone in 60 Seconds (the original)
    Every Which Way but Loose

    I would also add that I have seen the Man with No Name trilogy more times than I can count.

    Only one. "Yankee Doodle Dandy," the story of George M. Cohan with the incomparable James Cagney. My favorite movie of all time.

    I've probably seen Liar, Liar and School of Rock just about that many times.
