    I have never been able to convince mine to watch Christmas Vacation (the greatest product in film history). She rolls her eyes every time I quote a passage (all 4,000 of them). And I’m serious, Clark.

    My wife rolls her eyes at Animal House, but she loves Christmas Vacation
    Edit: She quotes it herself!

    Ha! After 33 years, I think I’ll hang on to her.

    Done that myself, too--you'll get some snickers after the meeting from those who got it.

    A friend at work and I have been taunting each other to work Rage Against the Machine lyrics into our meetings & inter-office communications. Now that's proving to be quite the challenge to just "slip in there."

    That movie’s a classic, and so many of them went on to long successful careers.

    I used to work with Donald Sutherland a lot. The rule was never to bring up Animal House. He was the biggest name actor in the film at that time and they offered him points on the profits but he took the $40k instead for a couple days of filming. Had he taken the points he would have made more than $20 million.

    One morning he showed up for session wearing a fedora with a huge pheasant feather in the band. I said “you’re looking very thespiany today Donald.” He says “go f*** yourself” and throws the hat in the trash. Good times.

    After 30 years, you don't hang on - she tells you when to let go.

    I'm not going to add to the debate of what's on the top 10 list for this legendary film, but all that pales in comparison to the greatest and most quotable character of that era........

    Mrs A insists on watching Die Hard at Christmas. She also loves Lethal Weapon.

    Obviously I don’t complain.

    My son and I volley "Animal House" and , especially, "CaddyShack" at each other constantly, especially at dinner. My wife just looks at us like WTF are you talking about?

    I ran our fraternity system when I was in college, I can't even begin to guess how many times I've seen this movie. It's simply a brilliant comedy.
