The mark of a great film?  
At one time in my life, I used to borrow movies overnight from the video store I worked at. If I put the movie in and I stayed awake much too late to finish it, I figured there was something--anything--in it that was good enough to keep my attention.

As I sat at home with Abby (who was sick for part of the day), I saw that TiVo had recorded Say Anything. Even today, I just sit and wish I could be Lloyd Dobler. Alas, I am NO Dobler in any way at all. But as I watched a few scenes from it, I began to think about how, even at the end (an ending that I've seen so many times I have lost count), I wish it wouldn't stop. I want to see what happens with Diane and Lloyd.

Now, don't misunderstand me, I obviously could never see a sequel to this--nor should one be made. I just love it so much I don't want to see it end, you know?

What films are like this for you?
