Request: Amy's Favorite Movie vs. Devin's Favorite Movie

I think it was on the Working Girl episode (I may be wrong) that Amy mentioned her favorite movie is Pennies From Heaven. I'd like to see it, or another favorite movie of Amy's choosing, against whatever Devin considers to be his favorite movie. I imagine the debate would get quite heated and be wonderful.

HAHAha, a Synecdoche, New York VS Wizard of Oz episode would be absurd, now I really want this

I re-listened to the Best of 2014 episode recently and Amy said her favourite movie is Synecdoche, New York

Devin has said before that Wizard of Oz is his favorite movie.

Devin might try to game his favorite movie, like he did with Creed.

Seriously, I have no idea what it is. Devin's fave. I...THINK...I too heard Amy singling out Pennies from Heaven. But as her #1? Movie? Not just musical? That....probably wouldn't stand up to whatever movie Devin will select as his fave. It's...a pretty fun, cute, interesting little movie. Pennies from Heaven. But...well...it's not up with the MGM greats. Including the Asiaire and Rogers. Or the Berkeleys. It's fantastic amateur theatre, FWIW, and I can understand the heartstring-pullings. And the earnestness. But...favorite films are probably a little more polished. At least mine are.

I'd be game for it. But I'm already dreading the thought of Amy picking a very-underseen B-musical of the 1980s against whatever juggernaut Devin will likely select as his champion.

Pre-emptive EDIT: Looking up lists Devin may or may not have made of his favorite films, I came upon this list of Devin's Top Ten, from years back:

  • Dawn of the Dead
  • Wrath of Khan
  • Duck Soup
  • Do the Right Thing (having recently re-listened to the Canon ep, he did list this in a top Three, I think)
  • Ghostbusters
  • Spiderman 2. (Geek)
  • Shaun of the Dead
  • Annie Hall (previously discussed)
  • Beneath the Planet of the Apes (ditto, and serously, I gotta check this out)
  • The Last Waltz (I know no-sing of this one)

So....Duck Soup vs. Pennies from Heaven? A bizarre matchup. I don't think any of the others would be remotely comparable. And even this would be seriously pushing it.

That's actually a funny idea. Sounds like the perfect valentine's day ep for me.
