How many times can you watch the same movie, before you get tired of it?

Do you ever watch a movie twice in the same day? How many times can you watch a movie, before you get tired of it? When Pitch Black first came out, I watched it seven times over the weekend. I loved that movie. It had all the best elements of Predator and Alien, with a super cool anti-hero (Vin Diesel). I haven't seen the movie since then. Sometimes I like to watch an entire movie all the way through, except for the ending and then start the movie again. That way I can enjoy the journey more than once. And, the ending is not spoiled for me. Do you watch your favorite movies multiple times?

i've watched some movies alot and one time is enough for me. overboard is one that i will sit and watch every time it comes on tv. i've probably seen it 40 times. i usually won't watch a movie more than once in a day though.

I don't have time for it anymore, either. Just something I did when I was young. Be well!

It's one of those movies you can watch time and again and never get tired of.

There are a few movies that I will watch repeatedly. I love the Mummy movies with Brendon Fraser, and The First Wives Club. The African Queen with Humphrey Bogart I'll watch every time I see that it's playing.

Oh,I think I will never do that like you.I only watch one or two movies in a day and I only watch the same movie once unless it's really very interesting and I like it very much I may watch it twice,but then I will stop.

If you think it's fun you can still do that and you shouln't care of what others said.

I own that movie! I lie to you not. It's in my video case. Yes, I do still have videos. It's hilarious. I should watch that one again soon so we can discuss it. I love talking about funny movies. I forgot to mention Liar Liar on my other post about funny movies. I wonder if they'll let me edit to add that one? Well, I'll add it next time someone responds!

I have seen the same movie for about five times.There are two reasons.One is that the movie itself,the other one is that i want to practise my english.You know,it is really a good method of learning english to watch movie.I can get knowlede of the foreign culture and some sentences.

Yeh ,you are definitely right ... I can still remember some words: Life is like a box of chocolates and you never gonna to know what you will get next ... For the world you are a man ,for a man you are the whole world... I will back! We can get manny meaningful ideas from some great movies . I remember i have watched the movie Forrest Gump for 4 times in one day ... And i nearly remember the whole story ... Because it's really good~~~

I have a hard time watching a movie a second time because it usually ends the same!

Vin diesel is well worth a second look! I used to watch grease over and over again, wow when I was 14 I loved that film. Also Bruce Lee films. Then it was Jean Claude Van Damme, I would watch his films over and over again, all of them they were ace. Nowadays I watch films over and over because of my daughter who is in love with both of the Garfield Movies. I never get sick of watching them either as when I was a kid Garfield was my hero and I loved him, still do. We watch the films every day monday to friday. Oh and the hellraiser films if you have ever heard of them, I can watch them too a lot.

I don't think I ever get tired of watching the same movie over and over. I've seen The Princess Bride more than 300 times--maybe even more than 400 times! :)

I don't watch a movie twice normally. I have watched very few movies more than once. I like good comedy movies but I can not watch them twice in the same day. However, I can watch good movies again after few weeks or months. Yes, it is a good idea to watch a movie in full except its end so that the same can be watched again with full interest. However, I've never used this idea and maybe now I can use do this in future, in case I come across a good movie.

It all depends on the movie.There are films where you only need to see them only once. And there are others you need to see at least twice. And then here are the films that you could see on a continuous.Schindler's List is a film I saw only once.Usual Suspects is a film that I had to see more than once. And rocky Horror is a film that I could see over and over.

It usually depends on the movie, I can watch Blade Runner again and again because it is so interesting. and there are also those movies that are your favorite becasue they have some quality that cant be described. But usually 3 times is the limit on most films for me at least.

I couldn't watch good comedy more than twice in the same day. There are some movies I watched so many times, but probably not more than twice a day. I watch some movies multiple times and I keep them to watch it again.

i only watch one time for most movies. while the most interested ones will be twice enough. but never in the same day or several days later. maybe several weeks is ok.

I can watch some movies over and over again. On the same note, if a movie is really good I might watch it with my husband and then with his family or my mom. We watch a lot of the same movies over and over again because our son has a few favorites...

There are some masterpieces I can watch dozens of times; but some time must pass between 2 watchings

When I like a movie, I did watch it so many times but I won't get tired of it. These movies include Brave Heart, Armageddon, City of Angels etc. Every time I read it, I will still shed my tears. I love China

Depends on what movie and my mood at the time.. or when i last watched it or how bored I may be at the time? whether i need to chill or need a lift up? Not sure how many times before i get tired of it as i often forget what exactly happened in the movie, all the scenes etc, would need to be really many times:)
