      I think that The Blue Lamp just edges it for me in front of The League of Gentlemen, but if Witness For The Prosecution which to all intents and purposes looks like it's British and was British but DEFINITELY ISN'T British then that would be my choice.

        My favourite is still Mrs. Henderson Presents, and it's on BBC2 at 23.05 on Xmas Day.

          There are a lot of amazing films, but all the James Bond movies are my favourite !!

            I am not going to talk about classics but among 21st century' films. Slumdog Millionaire is the film that has impressed me a lot, everything was balanced, from direction to music.

              I could be easily persuaded to include the (original) Italian Job as a fave. Hits all the right notes. Very British - Caine, Coward, Benny Hill, Fred Emney, load of Minis.....and the tantalisingly inconclusive ending.....

                Adults having 'many favourites' doesn't bother me as much as millennials claiming some pop star to be 'very unique' or 'very iconic'.

                  If I'm allowed to love more than one person (mother, wife, children, etc.), then I'm allowed to love more than one film.

                  Life of Brian
                  Full Monty
                  Rocky Horror Picture Show
                  2001: A Space Odyssey
                  Shaun of the Dead
                  Attack the Block
                  Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead
                  Oliver!

                      I always enjoy watching The Battle Of Britain, especially for the superb, low-key ending

                        Two wrongs don't make a right

                        Just because other people got something wrong doesn't mean that you should
                        Yes, you can love more than one film but you can't have more than one favourite.

                            Also "one of the only" and "one of the first"!


                            I'm not sure about "favourite" being absolute. I certainly favour quite a variety of desserts.

                              You can favour lots of flavours, but you shouldn't have more than one favourite.

                              You can't have more than one favourite in a horse race

                                Pavlova.... lemon meringue pie.... butterscotch pudding.... it's a tie!


                                You can have equal favourites in anything.
