two all time favs along with the gopher golf movie, Caddy Shack and of course, The Blues Brothers.

Belushi was iconic
I was listening to a Rolling Stone interview after JB died and they were discussing his mecurial rise.In '78-'79 SNL rose to the top of the ratings,Animal House was leading movie tickets sales,the "A Briefcase Full of Blues" shot to the top of the Billboard Charts.Never had one entertainer been so drunk with success in such a short time frame.He was at the top in TV/Movies/Music - unbelievable.Of course the "Blues Brothers" came out before he passed and pretty much cemented his place in entertainment history.I honestly don't think a president's passing bothered me as much as JB's.I still have their album BTW

My friends and I saw Lebowkski in theaters like 13 times.  It was right up our alley, so to speak. 
That sounds a lot like people used to do with the Rocky Horror Picture Show. While growing up in Columbus, there was a theater a few blocks south of our house that ran RHPS for years every Fri and Sat night. The same people would dress up and go see the movie every weekend. It was like a religion. 

A couple of friends and I decide we would go one night to see what it was all about. I will say, it was an event. Not a movie that I would ever want to see again, but it was more about the event than it was the movie in my opinion.

Caddy shack like some other movies, it's better the 5th time you watch it

like the Big Lebowski
Airplane was like that for me. There was so much going on in the movie that you had to watch it several times to pick up on the subtle jokes or background scenes. It was funny enough that when Airplane II came out, I watched it. But just like every other sequel, it was lacking in that they just did the same jokes with different actors, and not very well.

Has anyone seen the movie Warrior with Tom Hardy and Nick Nolte? I really liked it and it also appealed to my wife which I find is hard to do with a lot of movies.

have never seen
I was in high school theater so several of my friends were amongst the cast members that would play out the movie down below the screen, as the movie went on.  At the theater closest to our high school, that movie ran for something like 30 years unbroken as a midnight feature on Thurs-Sun nights.

I saw it a few times, I like the music, but it always seemed strange to me that high school kids would act it out simultaneously.  It's a pretty... bawdy... show, to say the very least.

Well I will say that one of the girls from our theater department that played the role of Janet, was really cute, and she dug me.  On nights when she wasn't doing the show, we too often found other, more important things, to do around midnight.

Fooling around with you was second place in her life to RHPS... Duly noted.

The movie "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" centers around a HS group who does the Rocky Horror dress-up thing.  

I've never dressed up to see a movie, much less act it out.  I was already acting out Lebowski before it came out, lol.  Anyway, I look forward to seeing a movie in a theater, perhaps this summer.

Probably not even second, there's a reason she was playing Janet.  But she was extremely cute, and I didn't mind.  

The nights she was busy with her Rocky duties, I wasn't typically spending alone.  We weren't exclusive.

She went to Northwestern and got a theater degree, and ultimately ended up in LA acting, directing, producing some small-time stuff.  We're Facebook friends to this day.
