A League of Their Own

There's no crying in baseball, but in Penny Marshall's seminal 1992 major-league comedy, there IS Geena Davis, Madonna, Lori Petty, Rosie O'Donnell and Tom Hanks.

Watch A League of Their Own here.


The 1980 slapstick comedy has it all: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Julie Hagerty. Leslie Nielsen being serious, and don't call him Shirley. (Airplane II: The Sequel is also streaming.)

Watch Airplane! here.

The First Wives Club

Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton get revenge on the ex-husbands who left them for younger women in this 1996 comedy that has more than stood the test of time.

Watch The First Wives Club here.

Funny Girl

This is how you become an icon: Barbra Streisand's first-ever film role was this beloved 1968 musical about Fanny Brice, for which she became a first-time Oscar nominee AND winner.

Watch Funny Girl here.

The Godfather Part II

Francis Ford Coppola's entire Mafia trilogy -- including The Godfather and The Godfather Part III -- is on All Access, but 1974's Al Pacino and Robert De Niro-starring Part II is the pinnacle.

Watch The Godfather Part II here.

Pretty in Pink

1986's Pretty in Pink is quintessential John Hughes: The girl from the wrong side of the tracks (Molly Ringwald) winds up in a love triangle with a local rich kid and her nerdy best friend.

Watch Pretty in Pink here.

Roman Holiday

"And introducing Audrey Hepburn." So announces the opening credits to this 1953 romance, which stars Gregory Peck and the would-be icon, who won her first oscar for Roman Holiday.

Watch Roman Holiday here.

Rosemary's Baby

Lauded as "possibly the best horror film ever made," 1968's Rosemary's Baby features a mysterious pregnancy, a pact with the Devil and a star-making turn from Mia Farrow.

Watch Rosemary's Baby here.


Neither Tom Holland nor Andrew Garfield's runs as the friendly neighborhood wall crawler are currently streaming for free, but if you want to revisit the OG, the first in the Tobey Maguire-starring Spider-Man trilogy is on All Access. (And yes. It's a classic of the superhero genre.)

Watch Spider-Man here.
