Is there a movie you know word-for-word? (Read 1212 times)

    Mine is "Blazing Saddles." It's on some cable network right now, so I can hear it in the background and am reciting all the lines right along with the film. I should probably be really embarassed by this fact, huh...? Smile k Modified to add: RIP Madeline, aka Lili Von Schtupp

    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

      Between my son and I, I think we could come up with almost all of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. We saw Spamalot last year and LOVED it. Smile

        Blazing Saddles is a good one; I haven't seen it for probably 7 or 8 years so I'm not sure I could recite every line but I'd probably be close. I have no doubts that I could recite Monty Python and the Holy Grail as well as Life of Brian word for word. When I was in college I had a friend that I could drive absolutely batty by reciting the movies at him. (This is without the movie being on, mind you.)

          Yeah, Holy Grail is another good one. I can't wait until I'm 37 so I can say "I'm 37, I'm not old!" Only about another 2 years, woot! Tongue k

              Just two that I can think of: Back to the Future and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I used to watch them both incessantly when I was younger. Maybe Ghostbusters too.

                That's a good one! Definitely one of my favorites. Smile

                    The Big Lebowski. Such a great film!

                      Most of the Buster Keaton and earlier Charlie Chaplin movies I know verbatim. Haha. But seriously - the closest movie for me would have to be Bladerunner. It's my #2 favorite movie of all time, and it is very under-spoken with more mood & imagery than dialog. Which makes all the lines the more memorable. And I've seen it probably a hundred times.
                        Nah, no need to be embarrassed, my wife and I see that as a geek badge of honor. We do that with Blazing Saddles as well. Also Holy Grail, Airplane!, Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety, History of the World and The Princess Bride. Can you tell we're Mel Brooks fans? Big grin

                          Animal House, Caddyshack (gee, can you guess my age?), Airplane... the list goes on. Johnnypebs - History of the World is one of my favorites. The opening scene (cavemen) gets by a lot of people, but it just destroys me every time I see it! In fact, I hear the DVD calling my name... Big grin

                                I REALLY want to see the new Young Frankenstein musical that is on Broadway! I'm bummed that we missed Spamalot in Chicago, too. k
