Oh I hope nobody ever tries to remake "Singing in the Rain"!! I would not see it, for sure!

I have a hard time with "Grease," which has great score, great dancing, great songs, but the moral of the story is that to be popular, a girl must become a slut and that's a horrible message to send (I repeat this any time I have to review a stage production of this show!)

Bonnie and Clyde's a good answer. Wasn't sure which performer you were referring to with your Battlefield Earth answer (unless it was your previous John Travolta answer overflowing into number 11). Wish my girlfriend's dog was like your dad's dog; the last time she watched a movie with him he spent the whole time distracting her by staring at her, wanting to be taken out.

Sam Elliot. Yes !!

I think Bonnie & Clyde is one of the greatest, most influential movies ever. And the wardrobe is a big part of its impact. Great choice!

I chose Sam Elliot, too. He's so very, well, something! hehe
