WDP — More Than Five

What movies or TV series have you watched more than 5 times?

I have never watched a TV series more than five times. And there are only two movies I can think of that I’ve watched more than five times. One is this:

“Pretty Woman” is the ultimate chick-flick and it happens to be my wife’s favorite movie. I can’t tell you how many times she’s watched it, but it’s way more than five times. And as her husband and life partner, I watch it with her when she asks me to, which is most of the time.

As for me, my favorite movie of all time is Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein.”

I think this is the funniest movie ever made and I have watched it countless times and it always cracks me up. Here is a detailed post I wrote about it from last year’s A to Z challenge, when my theme was movies.

    I have watched all the Harry Potter movies at least more than five times, but in my defence there is always a break between watching them.

    I’ve seen PW twice and YF a whole bunch of times. I also saw YF as a play/musical, which was fabulous!

    Frau Blucher! It’s Franken-shteen! That’s a masterpiece, though I’ve only seen YF maybe three times; I prefer “The Producers” and “Blazing Saddles,” but I’ll grant you YF. Anything with Gene Wilder. I’ve never seen “Pretty Woman.” Perhaps you should write a blog about movies you’ve deliberately never seen because you know they’re not your cup of tea. I’ve never seen “ET” either, although we own it (still in the shrinkwrap) because I felt obligated to buy it to show to my children, who ended up watching in school, so I didn’t have to! Two movies I have watched multiple times (again just recently) are “Fargo” and “Jackie Brown.” Also “Notorious”–my favorite black and white movie.

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen “Jackie Brown,” but “Fargo” (the movie) probably 3 times and 3-4 seasons of the TV show. Hitchcock’s “Notorious” is a goodie!

        Not everybody likes everything, but the cast alone–Pam Grier is a knockout, along with Sam Jackson AND Robert DeNiro not to mention Bridget Fonda, Chris Tucker, Michael Keaton! I saw a version once traveling on local TV where they replaced all the bleeped expletives with real words and it was hilarious–take your hands off of me, motor scooter… It’s a smart film. Elmore Leonard.

          I don’t usually like Quentin Tarantino movies much, and I wasn’t aware he did stuff that far back until I saw Pam Grier in an old interview with a movie buff (somebody famous who I don’t remember). I’m glad I’ve seen it. I haven’t seen them all. I really like Django Unchained. I have a son who I tried, one day, to impress my sincerity upon that I also don’t like Tarantino movies but did like Django very much… knew he would too. He did not believe me, and I said I knew it was almost impossible to imagine. Some months later, he let me know I was right (“right” in our opinions). I’ve seen it at least twice.

    I’ve seen Pretty Woman about a dozen times, and we had the special edition copy on VHS. Young Frankenstein was a one off for me, but The Terminator I’ve lost count (at least twenty) and sequels five or more, The Abyss special edition about ten, Dances with Wolves a dozen, 13 going on 30 at least 5, It’s a Wonderful Life and The Glenn Miller Story must be 6 or more, Titanic, including special edition five, Up must be seven along with the Incredibles, Brother Bear, all the Despicable Mes and Flushed Away. As for a TV Series, NCIS except seasons 14 and 15 which we have only watched twice and have now lost interest so we didn’t buy any more.

          I’ve seen The Fifth Element a few times, probably not five. If I include holiday specials (like It’s a Wonderful Life), there’s Wizard of Oz — always running on Thanksgiving whether we paid full attention to it or not — and others.

            I’ve seen The Sound of Music a few times too. Ben Hur and Sparticus tend to be on TV at Easter/Christmas. Good films, but makes me glad we haven’t got a TV anymore.

              When I was little, I liked singing songs from many musicals. My godmother (one of my dad’s sisters) got me started by singing to me from The Sound of Music.

    My husband rewatches his favorite movies, but I’ve rarely watched a movie more than once, no matter how much I liked it. When I know the ending, it’s spoiled for me. The same goes for books.

    It is possible that, because of the ongoing repeats after school when I was young, I’ve seen Gilligan’s Island five times (but scattered while I don’t think the sequence mattered). Ma-a-y-be five, probably more like three. The movie I’ve seen the most times, certainly more than five, is The Matrix. Oh, also… Jesus Christ Superstar (closer to five than to way more although it could be around five per each of the two major versions). The latter isn’t something I’d be likely to watch with someone, however. Plus, there have been times that I don’t view parts of it myself. The former, meanwhile, is a family cultural touchstone (to the extent my sons and I alone are a family).

    I’m trying to remember comedy movies I’ve seen around five times. I like comedies. Yet, as with most movies of any kind, I’m not likely to watch them more than twice, or thrice if I’m feeling nostalgic or something years later. However, I like Muppet Treasure Island a lot; might have viewed it (not other muppet films) a time or two more than Young Frankenstein, while that’s entertaining more than once too. What’s Up Doc is the first (and only) movie I sneakily (with a friend) rewatched in the theatre. I’m sure I’m not remembering everything, but I tend not to rewatch; especially television, although some rewatching occurred that my sons liked (and I didn’t mind this).

      I just now remembered that I’ve watched Hamilton multiple times, am listening to the original Broadway cast right now.
