I agree with all of em except Forrest Gump, which I have a soft spot for, and the Searchers.

I think the thing that sets the Searchers apart is the scale of the basic quest the characters are on. The characters stick to a hopeless cause for years and years, never relenting. There aren't any car chases or anything, but I find the story inspiring in it's own way.

Just my $.02

And by the way - West Side Story is just a horrible, horrible, movie. When I've watched it, I've tried to put on the same nostalgia goggles I use to watch Brando in "The Wild One", but I just can't imagine a time when WSS was any good. Nice music, but laughably horrible overall.
