What are your must-see movies?

I was very excited to see “Roman Holiday” was on TCM — and then I found out that an otherwise cultured friend has never seen it.

Or “Casablanca.”

Or “West Side Story.”

Or “Grease.”

Needless to say, I was shocked. Shocked! So I’m putting together a list of must-see movies. Whether he sees them or not … Well, we’ll see. So far:

  • “Roman Holiday”
  • “West Side Story”
  • “Casablanca”
  • “Grease”
  • “Citizen Kane”
  • “The Paper”
  • “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”
  • “Forget Paris”
  • “The Sound of Music”
  • “Newsies”
  • “Sabrina” (the original, of course)
  • “The Music Man”
  • “An Affair to Remember”
  • “The Goodbye Girl”

What am I missing?


  1. Um… Ok… The above comment should say “KEVIN” and… the first three movies weren’t listed on the “every guy should see these movies” site

  2. “This is Spinal Tap”
    “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”
    “Silence of the Lambs”
    “Monty Python’s Life of Brian”
    “Blade Runner”
    “The Princess Bride,” although it slows down a lot in the second half

    If your friend is a journalist, add “All the President’s Men” (I know Clark beat me to it, but you can’t emphasize enough what a great movie that is), “Broadcast News” and “Under Fire.”
