5 more, so far not mentioned:

Dr. Strangelove
A Hard Day's Night
Moonrise Kingdom
Trading Places
Stranger Than Paradise (but only if you enjoy slow, subtle indie films in b/w) :)

Following on from Lazzard's precedent, my bonus pick/rec is A Life Less Ordinary.

Trading Places - Classic film that I never get bored of watching and a rare film that is set at Christmas but can be watched all year round. The only other film I can think of is Die Hard.

A sequal to Coming To America is currently in production and when that's completed production on Beverly Hills Cop IV is due to start.

Rewatched TP recently and it holds up really well.

The last Eddie movie I saw was "Tower Heist" which was respectable. "Bowfinger" was the last great role I saw him in.

Watched Blithe Spirit the other day. Marvellous!

Just tell your parents you're gay. It's easier.

Ha ha. Coming from Brighton I expect he has, even if he's not. Sorry Beaky.

Extremely well, with the all banking scandals we've had since then. Prophetic even. Would have included this myself if I hadn't watched it so often. That Santa Claus scene was great,

I saw thirty homosexuals pitch tents. What a camp sight.

If your husband is gay, sooner or later there will be tell-tale signs in his behaviour.

Remain vigilant, and keep us informed!

I'm thinking of going gay. It made enough money for the Pet Shop Boys.

What happened to the world we knew
when we would dance and prance and camp the time away?
It was a crime, so much is true.
We were bent, but no-one knew.
Two kids who shattered all the rules, yester-fools
and now, now it seems those yester-dreams are just an old
outmoded game we used to play.
Yester-me, yester-you, yester-gay.
