As fun as it is to watch new movies and keep up with the latest Hollywood releases, sometimes you just feel like plopping down and watching one of your old favorites. They're like a worn-in pair of jeans, or a couch that's been perfectly molded to your butt after years of lounging on it. And with today's streaming technology, it's easier than ever to find movies on Netflix you can watch again and again and never get sick of.
But with so many films on the site, it can be difficult to find the movies you're looking for. Their rotation is constantly changing, and you're in no way guaranteed to ever find your favorite movie on Netflix. So I've dug up 18 classics that bear non-stop repeat viewings — and that are all on Netflix as of March, 2017. Many of these movies are from decades past, as the films people grow up with are usually the ones they turn to again and again for comfort. However, there are a couple of more modern films that made the cut as well because they're just so charming that I can't ever imagine anyone getting tired of them. So take a look below at 18 movies on Netflix that you can watch again and again.
Maybe the best blockbuster of all time, and just as thrilling today as it was over two decades ago.
An underrated gem, and the funniest movie of the '90s.
This film is brand-spanking new, but its message, humor, and story have classic written all over them.
4'This Is Spinal Tap'
The first mockumentary, and still the best.

Will the plot hold up in a decade? Maybe not. But those fight scenes — some of the best ever put to film — should keep you coming back time and again.
Every generation needs their trusty high school comedy.
Technically this is a Christmas movie, which nearly guarantees you'll watch it every year, but the Christmas-theming is actually pretty light and it generally functions as an enjoyable, old school musical.
8'Ferris Bueller’s Day Off'
Comedy guru John Hughes at his finest.
9'Pirates Of The Caribbean: Curse Of The Black Pearl'

14'10 Things I Hate About You'
Remember what I said about every generation needing a good high school comedy? Well, here's one for a slightly older generation.

Another Christmas movie... or is it a Halloween movie? The only thing for certain is that you're going to want to watch it at least once a year.
