    Right, then…

    OK, maybe it’s time to list the “guy” movies, so we all know what they are. Now – this is not to say that women cannot/should not/will not watch these, but there seems to be a group of movies that bridges all genres that are sort of “guy” movies – either due to being particularly funny (Airplane!), entirely quotable (Airplane! Fletch, The Big Lebowski), or just being pure, sheer awesome (Dirty Harry, Man On Fire).

    There are points where the line gets a little fuzzy. Romantic comedies are generally off the list, but we can include “Something’s Gotta Give” because Jack Nicholson is in it (and Amanda Peet……uh, where was I?).

    You will note that things like Transformers and the Fast and/or Furious are not on the list. I’m sure they’re fine for their fans, but I don’t think folks will be listing them on forums 10, 15 or 20 years from now…

    So, here goes in no particular order. Add to the list as you see fit.

    The Big Lebowski
    Airplane! (1 and 2)
    Smokey and the Bandit (1 only)
    The Godfather 1 and 2 (not 3; never 3)
    The Dirty Harry series
    The Whole Nine Yards
    The Cannonball Run
    Hooper
    Anchorman
    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    Grosse Pointe Blank
    Blazing Saddles
    Young Frankenstein
    History of the World Pt I
    Casino
    Goodfellas
    Animal House
    Fargo
    Get Shorty
    Ghostbusters
    Fight Club
    The Shining
    The Vacation series (except European)

    You forgot Boondock Saints. Maybe Rocky 1,2,& 4, although after that they are kinda crap. Gladiator, 300, The Patriot, Waterboy, Braveheart, Indiana Jones, Ip Man. Um, let me stew a little more and I'll see if I think of any others.

    "You half-dead muthaf*****"

    "Boy, you look like a struck match!"

    My two favorite lines from that one. And I agree, Rick, Indiana Jones and Star Wars (pre-1999..I really didn't like the prequels, but am excited about the potential of the new stuff on the horizon...) are total guy flicks.

    Oh and any James Bond film not including Remington Steele, erm... Pierce Brosnan
