This is one of those movies that when it comes on, no matter what time of day or how far into it is, I'll watch it. It's just a damn good movie and the scene when they first hear their song played on the radio makes me smile every time.

"A man in a really nice camper wants to play our song on the radio! Give me a pen, I'm signing."

I checked YouTube for a video of the song and made the mistake of looking at the comments below, which is never a good thing. Searching YouTube comments always costs me about ten minutes of my life that I'll never get back and this time was no different.

There were people arguing, vehemently,  about whether or not this was a biographical movie. People were convinced that The Wonders were a real band and the comments got a little heated.

They were also convinced that Michael J. Fox was the second guitarist and "Faye was in Lord Of The Rings and the manager was Forrest Gump, but I don't know what else he's been in."

A lot of people missing the entire point of the "One Hit Wonder" theme of the movie, too.

But, as far as movies that I can watch multiple times over, this is near the top of the list. Apollo 13 is on there along with Predator, Point Break, The Big Lebowski and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It's a weird list. But what can I say? I've got a lot of time on my hands to watch movies over and over again.

What do you think? What are some of the most re-watchable movies?
