Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)
Unforgiven without Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. One of the first movies to make the bad guys the good guys (or at least the most sympathetic, interesting, appealing guys in the movie), George Roy Hill's film re-imagines two of America's most notorious outlaws as funny, clever, good-hearted, oh, and FRIGGIN' GORGEOUS. Also, "use enough dynamite there, Butch?" and "who are these guys?" are firmly fixed in my family's lexicon. Watching this one is going to be pure pleasure.
