I watched Parasite, the South Korean film that won Best Film at the Oscars. It is good but I was expecting it to be an all-time classic. I think it won the Oscar because of what it says about the rich and poor in society.

I must have watched The Blues Brothers something like 300 plus times. Life of Brian must be high 10's at least, same with Team America. If I enjoy a film or TV series I'm happy to watch multiple times.

Left field ones that I've watched a fair few times are The Tao of Steve, The Adventures of Ford Fairline and Frozen Silence.

I'll go counter culture and say I just didn't dig Escape to Victory..... Don't hate me.

All the other ones on the list were great though, love Dumb and Dumber (another one I've seen 10's of times) and Something about Mary. Matt Dillon was fantastic in that.

Lets just say the story and spotting who  the celebrities were, far outweighed  the acting on show.

They're on quite often on TCM. They've also had the fantastically silly Margaret Rutherford Miss Marple's recently.
