33. Singin' in the Rain (1952)
What do they think I am? Dumb or something? Why, I make more money than - than - than Calvin Coolidge! Put together!
Some movies are funny but lack substance (Billy Madison), some movies have great dance numbers but the story is subpar (An American in Paris), some movies have beautiful songs but nothing to back them up (A Star is Born), some movies have an interesting concept but can't seem to tie it together (The Cell), and every once in a great while a movie comes along that has it all. Not only does "Singin' in the Rain" do it all, it does it all better than 99% of movies of its day. This one has seriously got something for everybody. There are very few movies I would recommend to absolutely everyone, this is most definitely one.
