"So I Married An Axe Murderer", if I see it as I am flipping through the channels I will stop and watch every time.

Groundhog Day will stop a channel surf in its tracks for me...

So will any of the Star Wars movies... Even I-II-III...
As will Star Trek II-III-IV-Generations-First Contact...

I'm sure there are others, just can't think of them right now.

Shawshank Redemption pretty much always gets me. And last week it was My Cousin Vinnie. And though it's been a while, Field Of Dreams will often do it.

Jaws - every year somewhere between Memorial Day and July 4th.
Good Fellas - for a long time it seemed like I could find this on some channel every weekend.
Love Actually- every year around Christmas.
Grease - it's been a while now, but I must have seen it 100 times.

A few of the above plus, if you're a foodie, Big Night. On a side note, Chris Tucker should have received some sort of Academy Award for his role as Ruby Rhod in The Fifth Element.

I have watched the original Stargate movie many times.
I used to watch the Sean Connery Bond movies a lot, but they seem really dated now.

I so hate that movie. One of the only times I ever walked out of a theater before the end. So, so bad.

As for my re-watch favorite, probably Die Hard.
