Some movies aren't great, meaning we'll never rewatch them. Others are fantastic, but one viewing is still enough. However, some movies are so entertaining that we can watch them repeatedly.
One movie-loving internet user has asked, “What are your most rewatchable fun movies?” These are some of the best answers people have posted.
1. Hot Fuzz (2007)
One of the most popular movies in the discussion is Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz, as many users give it as their answer. It's an action comedy that follows two police officers investigating a series of mysterious and gruesome deaths in a village in South West England.
It's a hugely entertaining take on the buddy cop genre. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are great together, as usual. One user says they could watch it 80 times, enjoy it every time, and find new details with every viewing.
2. Speed (1994)
Action movie Speed is the answer given by several people. The movie's premise is that a bus rigged by a terrorist will explode if its speed falls below 50 miles per hour. It stars Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock in, arguably, their most famous roles, and Dennis Hopper is the brilliant antagonist.
One user says it still holds up to this day. They watch it every five years or so and always find it fresh and exciting. They also suggest that the movie's soundtrack is superb.
3. Groundhog Day (1993)
Given its premise, it's appropriate that Groundhog Day gets several mentions in this discussion. Harold Ramis' fantasy comedy movie stars his Ghostbusters co-star Bill Murray alongside Andie MacDowell in the leading roles.
Its entertaining premise is that a miserable television weatherman covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania finds himself stuck in a time loop that repeatedly forces him to relive February 2nd.
4. Back to the Future (1985)
Back to the Future is one of the most regularly recurring answers in the thread, with countless users giving it as their answer. So it's no surprise to see that's the case, either.
The classic sci-fi movie stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd (who have great chemistry). It follows a teenager accidentally sent back to 1955 in a time-traveling DeLorean car that his eccentric scientist friend Emmett “Doc” Brown built. Even with its many plot holes, it's endlessly watchable.
5. Almost Famous (2000)
Although only one user gives Almost Famous as an answer, the response is unanimously positive. The comedy-drama stars Billy Crudup, Frances McDormand, Kate Hudson, and Patrick Fugit. It's about a teenage journalist writing for Rolling Stone magazine in the early 1970s as he tours with the fictional rock band Stillwater and writes his first cover story about them.
Some of the responses to the suggestion include someone saying it's one of their all-time favorite movies, someone who can quote every line because they've watched it so many times, and another who says it's utterly engaging.
6. Galaxy Quest (1999)
Several posters say Galaxy Quest as their contribution to this discussion, with one saying it should always be the answer to any question about the most rewatchable movies. Its incredible cast includes Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, and Sam Rockwell.
The satirical sci-fi comedy is about the cast of a fictional cult television series, the eponymous Galaxy Quest, who find themselves drawn into an actual interstellar conflict by extraterrestrials who believe the series to be a documentary. It succeeds as a parody of franchises like Star Trek and a standalone entity.
7. Tropic Thunder (2008)
Tropic Thunder is a satirical action comedy about a group of temperamental actors making a Vietnam War movie. They get dropped in the middle of a jungle and are forced to use their acting skills to survive an actual conflict.
Several users say Tropic Thunder as their answer, and one of the posters who agree suggests that you should watch it with the commentary for a truly remarkable viewing experience.
8. The Mummy (1999)
The Mummy appears a lot in this discussion, and everyone responding to the suggestion seems to agree that it holds up to this day. One user gleefully shares how two of its female stars, Rachel Weisz and Patricia Velásquez, stirred up serious hormones in them back in the day.
The action-adventure movie centers on Brendan Fraser's adventurer Rick O'Connell as he travels with some allies to Hamunaptra, the City of the Dead. While there, they accidentally awaken Imhotep, an ancient cursed high priest with incredible supernatural powers.
9. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
While 1984's The Terminator is a classic and gets a few mentions in the discussion, its sequel gets more love. Terminator 2: Judgment Day is a sci-fi action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick, and Edward Furlong. It depicts a liquid metal killing machine being sent back in time to kill the future leader of the human resistance John Connor when he is a child.
Users point out that the excellent use of CGI in the movie is one of the main reasons for its longevity, as it still holds up today. One user says it's the peak of sci-fi, and they're not wrong.
10. The Goonies (1985)
The Goonies is an adventure comedy about a group of kids who live in the “Goon Docks” neighborhood of Astoria, Oregon. To save their homes from foreclosure, they follow an ancient map that leads them on an adventure to find the long-lost treasure of a legendary 17th-century pirate called One-Eyed Willy.
Its fantastic cast includes Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, Kerri Green, Martha Plimpton, Ke Huy Quan, Anne Ramsey, Joe Pantoliano, Robert Davi, and John Matuszak (they all deserve mention). One user responded to the suggestion by saying, “THE BEST!!!” That sums it up perfectly.
Some celebrities definitely seem to enjoy the limelight and keep working to stay in the public eye. While others quickly move out of the spotlight. Many of these actors and actresses stepped out of the spotlight to live a more private life without constant media pressures.
We've all been there – sitting through a movie that we can't help but cringe at, but somehow it still manages to hold a special place in our hearts.
