So, I flipped on HBO and Little Miss Sunshine was on. It was the ending, but it seems that no matter where in the film I pick up, it's like watching it for the first time. I get into it and it's just awesome.

Anyone have the same view?

Anyone have a movie that is just like this - the rewatchability?

Little Miss Sunshine is one of the most clever movies ever. I always catch Saving Private Ryan. And, for some reason that slightly weirds me out, it's always right around when Wade (Giovanni Ribisi's character) gets shot up.

I can see this flick having this quality...I've yet to do it with this one though.

Mine would be #1 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice from the mid 90's and Gladiator.

Seen PP at least 25 times in one year re-running a rented version.

I cant watch many movies more than once. Something about knowing whats going to happen ruins it for me. Comedies are the exception. Ive saw Friday, Cheech and Chong: Up in Smoke, and Dumb and Dumber probably 10-15 times a piece. I can watch Pink Floyd: The Wall over and over as well.

Little Miss Sunshine is a good film. But its waaaay overrated. I guess thats what happens when decent little films get overexposed.

For me it's Grumpy Old Men 1 & 2. No matter how many times it comes on TV I watch it and laugh. Especially the character Bergess Meredith plays:

Mama Ragetti: We could have retired in Hawaii.
Grandpa Gustafson: I have been to Hawaii.
Mama Ragetti: Oh yeah? Which island?
Grandpa Gustafson: Come-on-I-wanna-lay-ya.
Mama Ragetti: I find you disgusting.
Grandpa Gustafson: Well, just as long as you find me.

I refuse to buy it on DVD. I'm afraid I'd never watch it again.

Oh man! That was one tough scene. I tell ya, I can watch every minute of that movie and it's almost like the first time. On a side note, my great uncle landed on Omaha Beach and was eventually shot in the back about a half inch from his spine. When he watched the movie he said it couldn't have been more dead on.

Obviously, I respectfully disagree. Admittedly, it was probably overhyped. But it was a great comment on the family unit, dysfunction and comedy. I thought it had a good balance.


And yeah, that's what happens when good films get overexposed or catch people off guard.

The opposite of that is something like I Am Legend where people absolutely LOVE Smith, explosions and horrible CGI, and completely ignore the horrendous story, but I digress. :p

And, by the way, Juno killed LMS in terms of my favorite indie flick.
