    Really? I never thought of it like that. I focused more on the satire of the "sad-sack guy pulls together a band of misfits" aspects of the film. That, along with the wicked jabs at male ineffectuality and self-pity.

    All those layers are what makes it so good.

    The disease itself isn't funny, but the things he says because of it, in the movie, is quite.

    On the newer side, I'm pretty sure the movie Crank was aimed directly at guys.

    Highlander (the stupid "sequels" prove that there can be [should have been] only one)

    Airplane! (gratuitous "boob" scene locks it into guy movie territory)

    M*A*S*H the movie. A war movie with a shower scene and football.

    I think you'd be hard pressed to go wrong with any of the "Mafia" movies -- Godfather I & II, Scarface, Casino, Goodfellas, etc. I've yet to meet a guy that wouldn't put at least one of those movies in his top-20 all time.

    The "sports comedies" also usually figure somewhere onto most guys lists -- Caddyshack, Major League, Kingpin, Slapshot, Bull Durham.

    I think a lot of guys in my generation also have a "80s Nostalgia" thing, so you'll get a lot of mentions for The Goonies and The Karate Kid.

    I wouldn't put any sci-fi or fantasy movies on the "guy flicks" list, other than possibly Terminator and Terminator II -- the social stereotype is that sci-fi/fantasy fans are nerds. Nerds and "Guy Flicks" don't match up.

    On the action/drama front, it's hard to go wrong with any of the Die Hard movies, any Tarrantino flick (especially Pulp Fiction), or any martial-arts type film (even the Segal movies).

    Just watched that again the other day. A classic!

    Eastwood's Dirty Harry series

    Willis' Die Hard movies

    The Lethal Weapon movies

    I love war flicks (current and old). Just bought the special DVD on Patton and Battle of the Bulge. Patton is the ultimate guy flick.

    Good call. Give me a tv station with non-stop Bond and John Wayne films, my computer with a working connection and enough supply of food and necessities and I could pretty much never leave home until baseball season starts.

    A man after my own heart. I have collected pretty much all of Eastwood and Wayne's classic westerns. Yet when they are on TV - just watched "A Fistful Of Dollars" for the zillionth time the other night - I gotta watch'em!

    For some reason, its more fun to watch them on TV than by popping in a video. Not sure why that is, but I'm the same way. I thought I was just nutty that way.
