    Have you been able to watch a movie enough that you know the entire film by heart?

    When I was about 6 years old I memorized Conan the Destroyer. I watched it everyday when I got home from school and had every line down to a T. I haven't seen it now for about 15 years, so I don't think I could resite every line again.

    Yeah I think I've watched 'Enter The Dragon' enough times since the 1970's to have memorised every line of the film, I've seen it well over 100 times! At least 20 times in the cinema.
    When I watch it with some of my old mates we shout out every line along with the actors, not a pleasant experience for the unsuspecting visitor.[​IMG]
    Holy Grail is another one I know very well indeed, I'm currently trying to memorise the Japanese track on the dvd (which is still hysterically funny for some reason) just to scare of unwanted guests.

    I know all of the lines from Scary Movie. But I had a friend who knew every single line from Mrs. Dobtfire.

    I've got about 90% of a handful of movies memorised. Only one is totally replayable in my mind and that's Jaws. Since I watched it about 50 times in 3 weeks when I was 9 years old. lol.

    I worked at movie theaters for 10 years, 8 of them as a projectionist so I have most of the movies that played there permanently imprinted on my brain. Some that I never cared to see more than once but did anyway were Mrs. Doubtfire, A Few Good Men and The Firm.

    Movies I can recite almost word for word are:

    Revenge of the Nerds

    Better Off Dead

    Halloween I and II

    Friday the 13th
