On a popular philadelphia radio morning show today they were talking about movie classics they've never seen but probably should have. The one host has lived in Philly all his life and never saw the original Rocky and they were giving him a hard time about it. It got me thinking of the responsibility of film education to my child/ren.

Just for fun what "classic" movies would you want your child to have watched by the time they turn 18, whether it be because of Film Significance, Personal Favorite, Social References, Actors/Acting, Historical/locational importance, or Geekiness reasons?

Some of my picks off the top of my head would be
Gone With the Wind
Charlie & Chocolate Factory (original)
Now and Then
A League of their own
Breakfast at Tiffanys
My Cousin Vinny
Empire Records
Can't hardly Wait
Little Rascals
