Simple flick, but very effective.
Planes, Trains, Autos is so good it never gets old.

I like movies with catchy, clever dialogue.

And I also love movies with very little dialogue where every word counts. Most Horton Foote screenplays are like that.

Tender Mercies
Tomorrow
1918
To Kill a Mockingbird
Trip to Bountiful
Of Mice and Men

There are lots more but these are the ones that come to mind immediately.
