Of those three...only Dirty Dancing I'm afraid.

I would like to add something like West Side Story (great colour, great music), but I have problem with musicals in which erstwhile complete strangers start moving rythmically when IRL it wouldn't/couldn't happen...such as the fight between the Sharks and the Jets.

Perhaps I have no imagination.

But I liked DD, and the dancing was a fit for the story line as well as my 'straight' interpretation of IRL! :-)

Nigel, I don't remember seeing any Swiss movies. What's the film industry there like and does the government support it?

The Mask
"Did you catch him" "No, but the SWAT team have got a spot in Las Vegas", and so many of the CG effects...particularly when he meets his landlady in the hallway!

Miss Congeniality
"It's all in the buttocks dear" "It takes a man with a great deal of confidence to walk like that"

A lot of The Marx Brothers films, and those of Will Hay in which he's partnered with Graham Moffatt and Moore Marriott are a riot (particularly Ask a Policeman and Oh Mr Porter).

Nor do I (I guess The Sound Of Music doesn't count). I've only lived here 3 months.

Definitely agree with No Way Out and Bourne Identity. What was it that you were smoking when you watched xXx though?

I'd add most, if not all, of the Connery Bond movies. But anything with Roger Moore is just cringeworthy, and as for that safari suit...sheesh

39 Steps (Donat version)
Saboteur (OK, not strictly spies, but similar vein)
Notorious
Mission Impossible

I'm not too keen on gore, so the horror films that I like tend to be the old classics. So, I offer Dracula (Lugosi version). Nosferatu's pretty good too, if you like that sort of thing.

I wasn't aware that there was an Irish genre! But The Quiet Man is pretty good fun.
