Top 10 “Must Watch If Found While Flipping Movies”

Inevitably, on a Saturday afternoon (Sunday’s are NASCAR), if my wife is enjoying some down time in front of the TV, I’ll find her flipping the channels…then in an instant, I hear "You’re the one that I want….you are the one I want…wooo hooo hooo".  Yes…It’s Grease.  I’ve been telling her for years that there’s a certain group of movies that guys and girls will stop and watch on TV even if they own the DVD and have 7.1 surround…and commercials, who cares!  Here’s my choices for the top 10 lists from the home office in Des Moines, Iowa.  I’m sure there are many more that can be included and I welcome your comments. Be certain that these choices show my biases.

  1. The one that always gets me…
    1. Seven (even edited for network TV).
    2. Tombstone.
    3. Out of Sight (J.LO, J.LO, J.LO).
    4. Oceans “Whatever” (new version, old version doesn’t matter to me.)
    5. Best In Show.

  2. But lets get a little bit more realistic….
    Everytime I turn on the TV this is what I see. I believe these movies are on 24/7 and I’m sick of all of them (except Men in Black…they both get me everytime):
    1. Men in Black
    2. Badboys (I and II)
    3. Casino
    4. The Truman Show
    5. Beaches
