Top 10 Movies You Could Recite CompletelyThese are the films I have watched way too many times. The films which I could sit a recite the whole film while watching. Obviously, they're just that good!
The Top Ten
There could not be a better film spoof of Star Wars than Spaceballs. Mel Brooks achieves more than he thought with this hilarious comedy. Spaceballs is by no means a simple imitation of Star Wars to cash in on its popularity. Spaceballs is in a unique and glorious reality all it's own and Brooks shows his mastery of wit and timing throughout the films entirety.
Just like Ghostbusters this movie has more quotable lines than anything else on the list
Perhaps the best written, most endearing, and most romanticly comedic film Mel Brooks will ever make.
Especially the poison scene. "And iocane comes from Authtralia!"
A film which I think every single inane line from its script makes for Facebook worthy posting. No one should miss this zany spoof of badly dubbed Kung fu films.
The one and only Ghostbusters is perhaps the greatest unlikely superhero film ever from the 80s. Four would be paranormal investigators trying vainly to create a thriving business based on paranormal investigation and elimination soon find they are the world's potential saviors.
We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay Puft's okay! He's a sailor, he's in New York; we get this guy laid, we won't have any trouble!
At least I used to be able to recite this whole film. My dad taped it off T.V. for me back in my grade school days and I watched it so many times, I actually wrote down the whole story on paper just to show myself I could. These days, it has finally been re released on DVD and I'm seeing how much I remember. But this is easily one of the top ten best children's television movies ever made.
Who knows where Tim Burton comes up with this stuff? And who cares? I'm just glad he did!
A more obscure film from 1991, High Strung is like a film version of the stand up comedy of Steve Oedekerk. Some may know Steve Oedekerk as the star of Kung Pow: Enter the Fist. This film is an acquired taste for some, but has some of the funniest moments in comedy I've ever seen.
In a world where there are way too many Alice in Wonderland movies, this one has got to be the most uniquely entertaining simply because of its unbelievable cast of characters, ranging from the most amazing to the most odd. Sammy Davis Jr. as the catapillar? Scott Baio as the Pig? Martha Raye? John Stamos? Red Buttons? Sherman Hemsley? The list goes on and on and gets more and more interesting. Plus the musical numbers are unforgettable.
Everything about this film sticks with me for life, That infamous whistling theme tune it has, the sappy characters and the corny voice actors, everything about it was memorable enough for me to remember pretty much all the lines.
Maybe not word for word, but most every scene in this film is quote worthy and comedic gold and can be recited by me no problem. No human being can claim the mantle that Danny Kaye can. Brilliant actor, singer, and dancer, and I'm pretty sure he delivered lines that weren't scripted. Danny Kaye simply delivers it. A true master of comedy in every style.
Read the book a few times, seen the movie about 20 times!
