    Burt Reynolds in Hooper and Smokey and the Bandit. He always had a way of bringing an audience along for the ride.

    All those great actors, and no one's cited a scene from "The Client" yet?

    The camera push on Pacino -- Michael transforms from civilian to future Don -- only Haden seems to realize it, and the discomfort it causes him

    I'd probably go with the scene at the restaurant where Michael has just come out of the restroom with the gun in his pocket, Sollozzo is yammering on in Italian, McCluskey is just munching away on the best veal in the city, the noise of the train outside is reaching thunderous levels, he realizes he's going to have to kill them both -- and he does it.

    Before that, he could have turned back. But not once he pulled the trigger.

    The start of Purple Rain (Let’s Go Crazy) was the best opening to a musical ever just set the tone for entire movie.

    Huge Newman fan (who isn't?) and love the part in "The Color of Money" where he forfeits the tournament semifinal (seeing his reflection in a pool ball) and stuffs the envelope full of cash in Cruise's arms as he walks out.

    I never saw the movie, but the slap and "Snap out of it" were in the commercial that seemed to run every 10 minutes until they became a punchline.
