My favorite DVD is Seven Samurai which I've watched three times. Once with commentary, and twice without.

I've watched several of my fav. DVDs at least 50 times. Some more than 100. Office Space, House on Haunted Hill, Ocean's 11, Se7en, are just a few.

I must've watched The Big Lebowski at least a few hundred times, if not more. I know I'm a loser, but the movie is just so damn funny to me

I must have watched "Pulp Fiction" at least 10 times, not counting the times I just put the movie on while doing house chores or sitting at the computer just to listen to the great dialogue.

Other faves include Seven, Snatch, Gladiator, The Usual Suspects and of course The Big Lebowski, all at about 7-8 viewings each.

Wow mljones99, 50 and sometimes 100 viewings??? Never mind the Passion of Christ, you got the Passion of Film my friend

I can't watch Pulp Fiction over and over. I think I've only watched my DVD of it once.

My most watched titles are Office Space, Big Lebowski, Dumb & Dumber, Mallrats, Clerks.

Sometimes I'll put on comedies I've seen many times to watch/listen to while I'm doing other things.

Yes, there is something wrong with you. My favorite DVD is Casablanca SE, and I would only watch it about twice a year. It is possible to have too much of a good thing.

Goonies has had about 20-30 times.
Star Wars IV-VI at least 50. I-II at least 20 times.
Flash Gordon about 15-20 times.

My favorite DVDs are concert DVDs and I think I have watched Woodstock around 20 time.

If you limit the choice to movie DVDs then there are quite a few that I have watched 2 to 3 times but none more than that except short portions for demo purposes.

All great picks so far, guys! I've only watched my favorite DVDs like 5 or 6 times, and could never really understand how someone could watch ANY movie 50 or 100 times (especially if the movie is less than 5 years old). Whatever makes you happy, though.

I'd have to say my favorite movie is Big Night, wish the DVD was a better quality but have watched it at least 10 times. I would say have watched most titles at least twice, favorites 3 or 4 times.

For a couple of months, I used to watch Boogie Nights, Out of Sight, or Apocalypse now every night.

I've probably seen Die Hard 3 around 100+ times. But I don't watch the DVD too often anymore.

And the, I have a lot of DVD's that I've probably watched 4-5 times.

I must've watched Donnie Darko at least 20 times for a week after I first saw it at a friend's house.

I've watched the "Orgazmo" DVD more times than I care to think about. I CAN'T WAIT for the legitimate release!
Oh, and "Bring it On" has also sent quite a bit of time in the player too
