Same here. I have several favorites that I will go to when I want 'the company of a familiar friend'.
Depending upon my mood and activity determines the movie.

Some of those I will watch again and again- slightly categorized...
Blazing Saddles, High Anxiety
Matilda, Practical Magic, Pan's Labyrinth, Never Ending Story, Dark Crystal
Man From Snowy River, Pharlap, Pricilla- Queen of the Desert, Welcome to Woop Woop, Whalerider
Get Shorty, Be Cool
Hoodwinked, Lilo & Stitch,
Saving Grace (would you like some cornflakes?)
Star Wars (any/all- got to see this twice the summer it was released at a special screening for our school district's summer school kids)
In Pursuit of Honor (even though it makes me cry every time)
See Spot Run, 50 First Dates, How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days, Without A Paddle, The Big Labowski
West Side Story, Wizard of Oz,

The holiday classics like Christmas Carol (1951 version with Alastair Sim), Miracle on 34th Street, The Bishop's Wife, and (more recently) Christmas Vacation and Christmas Story -- as I have watched these on TV or video once a year for at least the past 30 years!

However, for just sheer enjoyment, I would have to say classics like To Kill a Mockingbird, The Philadelphia Story, Some Like It Hot, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, etc.

Willy Wonka with Gene Wilder. When I was a kid, we used to get into the theater for 50 cents with a Mars Bars candy wrapper.

Poseidon Adventure. When we spent weekends on our boat in Marina Del Rey, we'd go to the theater there and this way playing for weeks and weeks so we just watched it over and over again during the heat of the day until it cooled off a bit.

The Worlds' Greatest Athlete with Tim Conway. This was my favorite movie and I'd go and watch it over and over again at the theater.

Bad News Bears. This was filmed two blocks from our house in Chatsworth and we got to watch them film part of it.

Live and Let Die. This was the first 007 I got to see growing up and loved every minute of it.

Used Cars. When we were kids, shortly after moving to Colorado, we snuck into this flick (my friends and I were way too young to get into this R rated flick) and it was hilarious. These dudes in front of us were laughing harder than us. They were the sheriff deputies from Colorado City/Rye area and we had to play it cool so we didn't get kicked out.

Scarface.

Full Metal Jacket.

T2.

Last Detail.

A Boy and his Dog.

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. Clint Eastwood's best movie.

White Lightning. Burt Reynold's best movie.

One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Hot Rock. Robert Redford's best movie.

Life. Eddie Murphy's best flick.

Repo Man.

W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings.

True Romance.

Army of Darkness.

Se7en

Silence of the Lambs.

Dutches and the Dirtwater Fox.

Christine, Pet Sematary, etc.

The Hunted.

Dogtown and the Z-Boys, the original documentary.

The Game.

Three Days of the Condor, Barfly, etc.

Fight Club.

Spy Game.

Cool Hand Luke.

Young Frankenstein.

Paper Moon.

I like the fact that you had so many on your list that aren't considered blockbusters. I especially liked the ones I bolded.

Saving Grace , especially, was a truly unexpected delight!

I agree though, I could watch it over and over.

However, I think I'd have to say I've watched Back to the Future the most.
