Which 5 movie characters would you invite to dinner?

Interesting question I saw recently on IMDB's message boards, thought I'd bring it over here.

Here's mine

1) Holly Golightly (Breakfast at Tiffany's)
2) Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
3) Ferris Bueller (Ferris Bueller's Day Off)
4) Westley (Princess Bride)
5) Marion Ravenwood (Raiders of the Lost Ark)

Holly could probably keep everything together and I think all these characters have something to say

What's yours?

Mine would be:

1. Oskar Schindler
2. Red and Andy from Shawshank Redemption
3. John Miller and the whole platoon from Saving Private Ryan
4. The Corleone Family
5. Neo

I know I broke the rule of 5 characters but I couldn't decide for 2 and 3 and just decided to throw everyone in.

Great thread idea!

1. Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday from Tombstone. He'd be great.
2. Olivia Williams as Ms. Cross from Rushmore because she's my kinda woman.
3. Sam Sheppard as Chuck Yeager from the Right Stuff to call ******** on the above two people.
4. Lena Olin as Sabina from the Unbearable Lightness of Being because she was hot as a baker in the movie and equally smart.
5. John Belushi as Bluto from Animal House to rip **** up.

Perhaps I'm mistaken, but aren't 3 and 4 the same?

1) Lloyd Dobler (Say Anything) - to keep the mood light and fun.
2) Lester Burnham (American Beauty) - bound to throw a china plate or two.
3) Frank Mackey (Magnolia) - Some sex advice over pasta is fine by me.
4) Frank the Tank (Old School) - He's Frank the Tank...no need for explanation.
5) Jack Black's High Fidelity character - Would've went with Cusack's, but two Cusack's at one table is a bit much. Needed for entertainment discussion.

Capt. Nemo (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea)

I would think having those 5 for dinner would lead up to some interesting and entertaining coversations.
