Vitamin Q: the book!

BEARD STROKERS

Films whose 'fans' are more annoying than the film itself:

1 Withnail and I
2 Rocky Horror Picture Show
3 The Italian Job (original version)
4 The Blues Brothers
5 The Big Lebowski
6 Lord of the Rings
7 The Shawshank Redemption
8 Pulp Fiction
9 The Sound of Music
10 Harold and Maude
11 This is Spinal Tap
12 Blue Velvet
13 Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
14 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
15 The Seventh Seal
16 The Godfather
17 Star Wars
18 Wayne's World
19 Taxi Driver
20 Fight Club

This list has caused much discussion on the net, mostly at the Straight Dope forum. With this in mind, I would have to bow to suggestions from others and add The Matrix and Office Space to the list. I didn't put a huge amount of thought into the list, just asked a few friends. It's not to be taken too serious, like, but it reflects three factors: films which lead people to parrot catchphrases, dance routines and bits of the script; films which are reinterpreted as lifestyle choices; films which are interpreted as having the heady allegorical depths of certain works of art and literature.
