    Man, we share a lot of the same list! I love "Axe murderer" as well. My wife and I often say to our son, "Head! Shoes now!" That kid, he's got a head on him :)

    You have to have "Ferris Bueller" tied at no. 10 at least. And "Wizard of Oz" is just too classic to leave off. Give it a special mention category.
