    Classic examples of cult movies would be "The Princess Bride" and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"
    There are lots of others.
    Then there are movies that I just like that maybe not too many people have seen. Here are a few.

    Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation - a classic Jimmy Stewart gem

    The Ghost and Mr. Chicken - I love this film much to the dismay of many. :eek: Don Knotts at his utlra nerdy, nervous wreck best. Don't even mention Mr. Limpet to me. I hate that movie.

    The Party - A Peter Sellers Laugh out loud comedy.

    Key Largo - A less well known Bogart film. Bogey takes on Edward G Robinson and his horde of bloodthirsty gangsters during a hurricane in Key West. Will the tough little guy prevail? Everyone knows it only takes a good women to bring out the best in Bogey. A great entertaining film.

    What to you like? I could use some new suggestions.

    Also, Steve Martin as The Jerk. Quite possibly the funniest movie ever made, again imo.

    I love Brazil too. The part with about his mom and the plastic surgery kind of creeps me out though.
    The original Nutty Professor is a great movie. I like to watch the reaction on the campus deans face when Professor Kelp schlups into his office after blowing up the lab.

    Primer. The most head-wrecking time travel film out there.

    Honourable mention for Donnie Darko.

    "What's Up Tiger Lilly" is also a classic. Woody Allen takes a Japanese spy flick and dubs his own words. People are running around killing each other trying to get the secret recipe for egg salad.

    Minus votes from me for Eraserhead. For my full critical analysis, see the 'Name That Movie' thread.
