My favorite's out, but UHF and Who Framed Roger Rabbit are up there. Some of this may have been the bias of the quiz: Princess Bride, while fantastic, isn't quite as much of a "Nerd Movie".

This just in Democracy is fine in concept but in practice is incredibly susceptible to framing

I'd say a top 5 making it out of 166 choices is pretty dang good.
