In a poll, the movie that most people chose as their favorite was The Princess Bride.

In second place there was a five-way tie. If you’re interested in the oldies, you can watch West Side Story, released in 1961, or Grease, released in 1978. If you want more of a recent movie, you can watch The Notebook, released in 2004, or How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, released in 2003. If you’re looking for something right in the middle, you can watch 10 Things I Hate About You, released in 1999.
The movies that came in third were Sixteen Candles,
Clueless, and A Walk to Remember. These also span over a significant amount of time, releasing in 1984, 1995, and 2002,
