Which movie tops the 'most rewatchable' list? You might be surprised

As any movie buff knows, there's a wealth of fantastic films out there. But you only need to see some of the best ones once to fully appreciate them.

Then there's the rest: The flicks that are fun when you first see them, and just as enjoyable — or maybe even more enjoyable — when you watch them again and again.

The folks at FiveThirtyEight conducted a SurveyMonkey poll to find out what the "most rewatchable movies" of all time really are, and the results are interesting.

Men love "The Godfather" films and women can't get enough of "Sound of Music," with each pick coming in second place respectively.

  2. "The Wizard of Oz"
  3. "The Sound of Music"
