Guilty Pleasures of Re-watching Movies

Do you have those movies that you watch over and over again?  Are they movies you watch a certain time of the year like It's a Wonderful Life?   I have a set for different times and I've become a huge fan of movies adapted from Jane Austen novels.  One of my favorites is not an adaptation rather an compilation of what could have happened when Jane met Tom Lefroy called Becoming Jane.  Perhaps it's because I think James McAvoy is not too bad looking helps to enhance the story but Anne Hathaway does a great job playing Jane.  I also have been taken with the Kiera Knightly version of Pride and Prejudice, Emma Thompson's Sense and Sensibility and Persuasion.  I also enjoy Young Victoria and think that Emily Blunt did an amazing job playing Queen Victoria and Rupert Friend plays Albert.  It's a great love story.

At Christmas, I enjoy The Family Stone which is a good comedy with Sarah Jessica Parker and her bad experiences one Christmas at the man who is about to propose.  I also like watching the Winona Ryder version of Little Women.  There are a couple of others but I cannot remember.  I was disappointed as Time Warner didn't show It's a Wonderful Life unless I missed it somehow.  Why I don't have the movie is beyond me!  Luckily, I have all those old Christmas cartoon classics that my oldest despises compliments of Warner Brothers.

What's your guilty pleasures when it comes to movies that you watch over and over again?
