Was flipping channels last night and it occurred to me that every time I turn my TV on, I have a good chance of catching Smokey and the Bandit and/or The Shawshenk Redemption.

Amazing. I know there are others that seem like they're on every night...help me out...

I love Jaws-it's in my top 5 of all time-but it seems to be on every night. Shawshank is on a lot

The Waterboy.
Home Alone II
Dirty Dancing
Ghost

I think Shawshank is on the most, however.

It seems like "Ghostbusters II" and "Scary Movie II" are in heavy rotation on Comedy Central.

Edited or unedited?

AMC has been running the edited version a lot lately.

Both, it creeps onto TNT, A&E, Bravo a bunch and on and on.... good movie (first time I saw it I had to go back to a remote cabin in the woods of Tennesee after it and boy that was creepy)

It seems like every single Adam Sandler movie airs everyday on TNT, TBS, or USA.

Shawshank Redemption - I would truly rather sleep, even when I'm not tired, than sit through this movie ever again.

A Few Good Men. I know because I watch it every time it's on.

My favorite line? "You see my problem is, of course, that I'm
a Colonel. I'll Just have to keep taking
cold showers 'til they elect some gal
President."

That scene is awesome.

Oh, man. I forgot TWISTER. That's on like once a day during the week and all day on the weekends.

Right up there with Shawshank

It does suck that TV channels played it everyday and it ends up making people not appreciate how truely great the movie is. It's in my Top 5 movies of all-time.

But TNT, AMC, TBS, etc playing it all week every week makes it get old because people feel they've seen it 40 times.

I could watch the last hour of Shawshank Redemption time and time again.

Tim Robbins did well. What a caper.

I can remember when it was on once a year, but lately, it seems like the Wizard of Oz has been on TV every other night.

I've been to the field with the big tree and the stone wall. In fact, I am the proud owner of one of those stones from the wall. :evil:

It's in Mansfield. Very cool. Looks exactly like the movie.

I loved Shawshank Redemption, but it does seem to be on a lot.

Braveheart was on the other night again. I think I've seen it 50 times and never tire of it. It's one of my favorites. I have it on DVD and still watched it.

Well, baseball is around the corner. Look for "A League of Their Own" to be on seemingly every night and my wife will watch it with the commercials despite the fact we have it on DVD.

Well I would rather watch Shawshank Redemption that all the kiddie movies I've had to watch over the past 3 years. However, I just saw "Curious George" last weekend and that is one kids film I will gladly watch again.

I think the all-time "I can't believe this movie is on again" for me was a movie back in the '80s called "Solarbabies."

UB is the man though. :D

Shawshank is on a lot, but it's a really good movie, I still watch it even though I've seen it probably 20+ times. Spiderman has been on TNT 11tybillion times in the last few months.

The Untouchables was on tonight. Seems like it's been on a lot lately.
