I don't think I did as bad as thought I would as usually I consider myself not really a great film watcher.
I also think of some that I would have added to the list
1. Awakenings - With Robert De Niro and Robin Williams have watched it many times and I still end up in tears
2. An Affair to remember - Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, the perfect saturday afternoon knitting movie.
3. Holiday Inn - Always try and wrap my Christmas presents whilst watching this one
4. Muriels Wedding
5. Educating Rita - I so empathised with this movie when I started Uni I kept thinking someone was going to find me out and tell me that it was all a big mistake and that I couldn't possibly have thought that I was supposed to be there.

Thinking about it I could probably make up my own one hundred, how about you what five movies would you add?
