As I was driving home from work yesterday, the DJ on the radio station I was listening to wanted listeners to call in with suggestions for pop-culture movies that his kids should see before age 20. He was talking about movies that people might make reference to by reciting a line from the movie and everyone knows what he's talking about.
I think he ended up with a list of about 30 movies in the short segment. I checked to see if he might have put them online, but he didn't. Some of the movies I agreed with, some I didn't. Now his kids are ages 6 and 9, I believe, so he said they would have to wait until older to see some movies, such as The Godfather.
A few of the movies I remember his callers suggesting were Grease, the first Indiana Jones movie, Star Wars (he didn't say which one), Steel Magnolias, Goonies, Gremlins, and Forrest Gump. The one movie I thought of that no one called in with was Gone With The Wind. Who doesn't know the line, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." I also think Hoosiers is a great movie to watch, especially for basketball fans.
So my question is what movies do you think are must-see movies that kids to see before the age of 20? Leave your answers in the comments section. Thanks.
