Kittens, Buffy, Good Time Movies

I am getting a kitten! Finally! It was getting silly because I kept making excuses for why I shouldn't get a cat but then I realised that all those excuses were just holding me back from doing something I've wanted to do for about a decade. And the fact of the matter is I simply cannot live without a cat anymore! I'm very excited. My landlord has granted permission and now I'm just waiting for the RSPCA to call me back to arrange a home visit. I don't anticipate any problems because I live in a very cat friendly household, complete with cat flap, garden and lots of unfriendly neighbourhood cats close by for him to become enemies with. I CAN'T WAIT.

Kirsty expressed interest a few weeks ago in maybe watching Buffy, which caused me to have an episode: I promptly went out and replaced all my Buffy videos with DVDs and now I'm totally psyched about rewatching the entire series with a Buffy virgin.

One of my favourite things to do in the entire world -- and I have a feeling all of you can relate to this -- is show a willing friend something I adore. I've gotten friends into Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock, The Wire, The L Word, Alias, BSG (Not Smallville, strangely enough. I don't think I've ever converted anyone to Smallville.) and I'm always thrilled when I find out that my friend has become a fan. It's best when you get to watch it with them though; there is nothing so pleasurable as popping in a favourite film and witnessing your friend's positive response. It's all about sharing!

I own a bunch of films that people might not have seen but which they are guaranteed to enjoy, and I often whip them out when I've got a friend over and we feel like watching something. Some off the top of my head:

10 Things I Hate About You
13 Going On 30
Beautiful Girls
Equilibrium
Mean Girls
When Night Is Falling
Wonder Boys

There's prolly more, but what I really want to know: what films can you think of that fit this description? I want Guaranteed Good Time films so I can complete my collection, and that doesn't meant they have to be comedies, it just means they have to be entertaining from start to finish. (Like Dirty Dancing! Which, criminally, I totally don't own on DVD yet.)
