5 Movies We'll Always Watch on TV, Commercials and All

Doesn't matter what time of day or night, these are the movies we'll never shut off (even if we have a commercial-free DVD copy right nearby)

Sister Act (1992)
Growing up in a Catholic household, the local church always seemed more finger-wagging Reverend Mother (played by a supremely icy Maggie Smith) than Whoopi’s shameless, ‘60s-soul-lovin’ Sister Mary Clarence. Rewatching this godsend of a film always reminds me of one revelation: that very possibly, nuns just wanna have fun.Brian Anson Wong, associate art director

The Notebook (2004)
I’m sorry, but you just can’t flip away from young Ry-Gos or the legit romance between him and Rachel McAdams. I was oddly unaffected when I first saw this movie in theatres, but now, it’s an embarrassing sobfest every time it plays, and I love it. “IT’S STILL NOT OVER!”Caitlin Kenny, beauty editor

Princess Bride

Buttercup + Wesley 4EVA

The Princess Bride (1987)
This one snags me every time. I don’t know what it is about the dreamy scenery, fairytale frocks, Cary Elwes’ blue steel, the silliness and romance… I die. “As you wish” indeed! Lindsay Murrell, photo editor


A bevy of midi skirts!

Mona Lisa Smile (2003)
I always get sucked in for the ‘50s collegiate scenery and costumes, a delightfully bitchy Kirsten Dunst, naughty Maggie Gyllenhaal and adorable Ginnifer Goodwin. And bonus! My boo McNulty, a.k.a. The Affair stud Dominic West. Alicia Cox Thomson, digital managing editor

Bridget Jones’ Diary (2001)
I revisit the first Bridget—in book and movie form—at least once a year. Hugh Grant as Daniel Cleaver is without doubt the most superb casting of all time, and I’ve never felt closer to a character in my life as I have to Ms. Jones. (Even despite my dislike of About A Boy.) Maureen Halushak, deputy editor
