The Greatest Movies On Basic Cable, Ranked.

It’s Saturday afternoon, the AC is on, and you’re most likely not wearing any pants. Let’s see what’s on TBS, TNT, or Comedy Central.

11. Clue

Murder! Mystery! Multiple Endings! TIM CURRY!

10. Sister Act

I will follow YOU, Whoopie.

9. Clueless

Thank you basic cable, for never airing this film sporadically.

8. Forrest Gump

Via FanPop

Endlessly quotable, endlessly watchable.

7. Beetlejuice

I’d repeat this three times.

6. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Head off into the city with Ferris, Cameron, and Sloane and feel like you’ve grabbed life by the horns without ever having to leave the couch. Bliss.

5. Zoolander

Because we always need a reminder that water is the essence of wetness and wetness is the essence of beauty.

4. Big

Let’s be honest, we’d watch almost any Tom Hanks movie any time it was on TV. The man is an American TREASURE.

3. Back to the Future

The world is a better place with Marty McFly in it. Keep it coming, cable.

2. Titanic

It’s a 4-hour investment. And you’re live-tweeting every second of it.

1. The Shawshank Redemption

Because it’s Saturday aftenoon and I need a good cry. No wait, it’s Saturday evening and I need a good cry. I could also use a good cry on Sunday morning. I have to go to work tomorrow, it’s Sunday night and I need a good cry.
