it would take me a week of title searching to answer; i'm sure i've forgotten movies which shouldn't be forgotten-
but having said that-
"arlington road" jumps to mind for the quirkiest ending........
"blazing Saddles"- if i wasn't on the aisle, i would have been in somebody's lap, laughing uncontrollably-(sp?)
"let it ride"- see! i forgot that one............

Texasgirl, I take it that you're a big fan of Morgan Freeman

I've never seen a movie (or anything else) in which he appeared that I didn't like. Right up to & including WoTW and Batman Begins this year.

Do you remember The Electric Company? It was a kid's educational show on PBS (it was on between Mr. Rogers and Sesame Street, back in the 70's). Ah I suppose you're too young to have seen it. EVERYBODY appeared on the show, at one time or another. Morgan Freeman had a recurring role, but other "regulars" included Rita Moreno, Mel Brooks, Gene Wilder (voice only...the voice of Letter Man), Bill Cosby, and Joan Rivers (again, voice only).

I used to watch that show religiously...I had outgrown Sesame Street, and Electric Company was a little more "advanced" (and funnier).

Gosh, do I just have to pick one? Ok, if I could only pick one it would be. Yours, Mine, and Ours with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda. I have it both on DVD and VHS. I like it sense of familyness and movie that is funny without any bad jokes or foul language.

Some others I like:

Pretty Woman
Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Top Gun
Dances with Wolves
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
Indiana Jones Trilogy
Open Range
Finding Nemo
Hidalgo
Smokey and the Bandit (Jackie Gleason is hilarious in this movie)
Master and Commander
The King and I (Original version)
Beauty and the Beast
Lion King
A River Runs Through It
