Defending Your Life with Albert Brooks and Meryl Streep is the one I buy in bulk at Costco and distribute to all the young editors I've worked with over the past three decades, because of the way its message inspires me. That film has forced me to look at my life from 30 thousand feet and enables us all to ask ourselves every time we panic about something that feels real, " when I die, this will make the sizzle reel of my life's most significant moments?". If it won't, we all shut up and carry on. That movie has really helped me (and dozens of up and comers) to see how silly it is to sweat the small stuff...

Flashdance. Alex made excuses to not audition for ballet school because she was afraid of failing. It was easier for her to dream about it but not do anything. I vowed never to let fear of failure hold me back, and to at least try.

I gotta say dumb and dumber...because when life throws you a briefcase, you take that briefcase to aspen.

The movie showed me that with family, teamwork and a little bit of luck you will find your way home.

Very cool, Jeff. The director of Homeward Bound, Duwayne Dunham, is teaching a film class for us at Pepperdine. I'll tell him next time I see him....
