I was able to find 32 lists. I took the 32 lists and added all their content into a spreadsheet, noting the rank of every film. I ended up averaging the rankings each movie got (there were 239 that were on at least 2 lists) and dividing that average by a factor of the number of lists that movie was on. The lowest score meant a high ranking average on many lists. The complete spreadsheet is attached at the bottom.

The movies that were on the most lists (out of 32) were:

  • When Harry Met Sally (1989) – 28
  • 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) – 23
  • Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) – 22
  • Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) – 21
  • Notting Hill (1999) – 21
  • Groundhog Day (1993) – 20
  • Roman Holiday (1953) – 20
  • Moonstruck (1987) – 20
  • Pretty Woman (1990) – 20

Here are links to some of the lists I used along with dates the lists were created, followed by the full original spreadsheet:
