Mean Girls (starring Lohan & McAdams)
to me this is the best high school comedy film ever (and the only one I like of that genre)! Tina Fey's writing is impressive. Always cracks me up.

This Is Spinal Tap will never stop being funny for me. When I was in college, that Caddyshack and Scarface, were the three movies we kept waching and quoting constantly--though while the other two are still enjoyable(if not a little cheesy at times)--Spinal Tap is maybe one of the most pitch perfect comedies ever. There's not one moment that I don't find funny in that film. Best in Show(with a lot of the same actors) is almost just as funny but Spinal Tap takes the cake.

I never get tired of Goodfellas or Raging Bull either---Scorcese doesn't have one bad scene in either of those films--they're just shot and choreographed so perfectly.

These are a little more obscure, but John Woo's Hong Kong action film The Killer and Le Samourai(a 60s French crime thriller), I never seem to get tired of either--they're like the perfect crime flicks.

Others... Dr. Strangelove, Airplane, The Third Man, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Godfather Part Two, Pulp Fiction, The Last Emperor.

Talk about a perfect script and actors... Damn, Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, and Alec Baldwin are all on top of their game in that one...
