Movies You Could Watch Over and Over

Each year when the holidays hit I start itching to watch movies and lots of them.

Not just any movie but movies that hold a special place in my heart. They may not even be my favorites but they’re movies that I could watch over and over.

We don’t own very many DVDs. We have a few I’ve thrifted for the boys and couple of my favorites (Legends of the Fall, Dirty Dancing, Hocus Pocus, Elf) but that’s about it. Since I’m noticing this trend of wanting to watch some of my favorites each year around this time I figured why not come up with a list so I can keep an eye out for them while I’m thrifting!

In no particular order here’s my list so far as I’m 100% sure I’m missing some. Hopefully you guys can help round out my list by sharing some of your favorites.

Side Note: How in the world do we not own Princess Bride?

What are some movies you could watch over and over?




  • Kelsey - You need to add The Family Stone and You’ve Got Mail! I’ll add more as I think of them.ReplyCancel

    • Haley M - OMG How could I leave You’ve Got Mail off my list!ReplyCancel

      • Kendra Huie - I haven’t seen You’ve Got Mail in a really long time. I need to rewatch it as an adult. Another one I forgot to add is Willow. Have you seen it? So so good!ReplyCancel

    • Kendra Huie - Haven’t seen both in forever. I need to give them another watch as an adult to see if they speak to me differently.ReplyCancel

  • Jessica - During Christmas time, the movie PrancerReplyCancel

  • Kaylee - My fav movies I could watch whenever, where-ever for the rest of my life are Sweet Home Alabama (love me some Patrick Dempsey) and The Devil Wears Prada. Also my favorite Christmas movies to watch are Christmas with the Kranks and Jim Carey’s The Grinch!ReplyCancel

    • Kendra Huie - I wasn’t as fan of the Grinch when it 1st came out but now I HAVE to watch it during the holidays! All the sets and costumes ugh! I want to do another post like this on holiday movies!ReplyCancel

  • Haley M - You have some great ones on here, some of my faves! Secret Garden, Because I Said So (my family to a T!), Under the Tuscan Sun (The book is great too, completely different from the movie), My Fair Lady!

    Pride and Prejudice 2005 is also a fave, and can’t go wrong with Harry Potter, especially in the fall. Lord of the Rings too. Oh, and we ALWAYS watch V for Vendetta on the Fifth of November, because…of course we do. And I’ve been seriously craving a Titanic rewatch.

    Hubs is more of a movie buff than I am, but now I want to go watch some of these 🙂ReplyCancel

    • Kendra Huie - Harry Potter is a good one! I’ve never read the books so the movies were my only taste of Harry Potter. I lost it when Dobby died…..lost it!ReplyCancel

  • Linnea - You mentioned both of my favorites……… Elf and the Holiday!
    I watch them both every year!

  • Sarah - Love this list! I’m a sucker for the romantic movies like Titanic and The Notebook. I have seen them way more than I’d like to admit! Here’s my list off the top of my head that aren’t listed…. Sixteen Candles (hello, Jake Ryan!), Fried Green Tomatoes, Serendipity, Father of the Bride, all the Anne of Green Gables, Wild Hearts Can’t be Broken, and favorite holiday ones are Home Alone and Elf.ReplyCancel

    • Kendra Huie - I haven’t seen Serendipity in years! I’m going to see if our library has it. I want to do another post with shows I could watch over and over and Anne of Green Gables would be on there for sure! I look for the series each time I’m in Half Price Books. Haven’t found it yet but I have hope!ReplyCancel

  • Lindsay L - Your list as well as some of the other girls comments on movies are all ones I love to watch over and over again especially Father of the Bride!! I don’t see Home Alone listed or Mighty Ducks! I would also add Sex and the City movies to the list.
    This makes me want to snuggle up with a hot chocolate with warm blanket and a fire going!ReplyCancel

    • Kendra Huie - I LOVE Father of the Bride ugh so so good! I think the 2nd one of my favorite!ReplyCancel
