->''"She's a cheerleader. You've seen Star Wars 27 times. Do the math."''
-->-- '''Neal Schweiber''' to Sam Weir, ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks''

A character is noted to have watched a movie/seen a show/read a book/etc. on a high enough number of occasions for it to sound geeky, obsessive, embarrassing, and possibly even unhealthy.

Rewatching or rereading one's favorite stories is a very common, very human activity, as well as a principal hobby of any fandom. However, whenever an actual ''number'' is given for how many times a person has enjoyed a specific work, it's usually never something for anyone to take much pride in having done--even if the work in question is ''good''.

In fiction, such information about a character is usually brought up either by ''another'' character, in which the remark is typically intended to be an insult or a put-down, or by the character himself, wherein the character may not show any shame for his devotion for a work, but it's still something that nobody else (be it the audience or other characters) reveres the character for doing all the same.

At its most extreme, this trope can be invoked when explaining how a character [[TaughtByTelevision came to acquire an actual talent or skill]].

* Film/{{Beetlejuice}} has "seen ''Film/TheExorcist'' about a hundred and sixty-seven times" (and it keeps getting funnier every time he sees it).
* In ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'', Scooter takes a job as an usher at a theater showing the [=3D=] film ''Attack of the Killer Fish''. When Lew Zealand heads in without taking a pair of glasses, Scooter follows him in with a pair -- and learns Lew doesn't need them because "I've seen this movie ninety-seven times!" His favorite part is when the fish attack, at which point he tosses his boomerang fish around the theater to add to the excitement (the other moviegoers think it's AllPartOfTheShow).
* In ''Film/StrangeBrew'', Bob says that Doug saw ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' 17 times.
* In ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'', Chad mentions that his mother has seen ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' on Broadway 27 times.

* PlayedForDrama during the opening scene of ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}''. Casey claims to have watched ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' "twenty goddamn times" in response to being told that she gave the wrong answer to a trivia question about it (which asked her to name the killer) with the stakes being her boyfriend's life. Unfortunately for Casey, the killer was not talking about the series as a whole, but [[Film/FridayThe13th1980 the original movie]], whose killer was ''not'' Jason Voorhees but his mother. The boyfriend gets GuttedLikeAFish soon after.
* The phrase itself isn't used outright in ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'', but it's clear [[ArtificialHuman David]] gets many of his preconceptions about himself from repeated viewings of ''Film/LawrenceOfArabia'' while the crew of his ship are in stasis.
* In the Dutch movie ''Filmpje (1995)'' with comedian Paul De Leeuw the hopelessly naïve woman Annie de Rooy has watched Film/TheWizardOfOz thousands of times and still goes to see it every day. The local film theater only keeps programming it just for her.
* In ''Film/TheOmegaMan'' the last person on Earth visits an abandoned movie theater, activates the projector by himself and plays Film/{{Woodstock}} alone for himself. He has clearly watched it countless times, given the fact that he is able to quote it line by line by this point.

* Alien in ''Film/SpringBreakers'' cultivates his gangsta creds by having ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'' on repeat.

* In ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'', Patrick Bateman mentions that he has rented the movie ''Film/BodyDouble'' 37 times. One chapter follows his train of thought at a video rental store as he picks the movie out "as if he'd been programmed." He also pretends to ignore "the horrified reaction" of a store employee who recognizes Bateman upon being handed the movie box when renting it out for what would be the 38th time. He sometimes likes to describe some of the film's more violent moments to both the reader and other characters throughout the story. "The power drill scene" is Patrick's favorite part.
* In ''Literature/LifeTheUniverseAndEverything'', [[WhoWantsToLiveForever Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged]] asks his ship computer if there's any movie he '''hasn't''' already seen "over thirty-thousand times." However, this is less about devotion or obsession and more about him being bored with immortality.
* The nerds in "One of Us" from the anthology ''[[Literature/GeektasticStoriesFromTheNerdHerd Geetkastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd]]'' have all seen something - be it Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, ect. - tons of times.

* In ''Literature/GoodOmens'', Crowley highlights the [[HellOfAHeaven unending sameness of Heaven]] by implying that it's nothing but watching ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic.'' "And you'll enjoy it."

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The [[TropeNamer trope name]] and page quote come from the [[ThePilot pilot]] episode of ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' when Neal is giving his opinion of Sam's chances of going to a school dance with Cindy. Of note, the show takes place in 1980, so Neal would be suggesting that Sam has seen ''Film/ANewHope'' (1977) twenty-seven times ''within three years of its release'' (and before home video was in widespread use).
* Something of a RunningGag on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', Turk and J.D. have watched ''Film/JudgeDredd'' together on a surprising number of occasions. In the episode "My Déjà Vu My Déjà Vu," Turk invites J.D. to watch the movie at his place at which point they both loudly proclaim in unison, "NINETY-NINTH VIEWING" before high-fiving each other.
** They and Elliot have also watched ''Film/RedDawn1984'' together, two at a time or all three of them, many, many times.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'':
** Fox Mulder reveals in the episode "Hollywood, A.D." that he has seen ''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace'' forty-two times. He claims that the sheer badness of the film numbs his brain, allowing him to make intuitive leaps and solve problems that have him stumped.
-->'''Scully:''' You've seen this movie ''42 times?''
-->'''Mulder:''' Yes.
-->'''Scully:''' Doesn't that make you sad? It makes ''me'' sad.
** In an earlier episode, the agents ran across a woman who was convinced she'd been impregnated by Luke Skywalker. This becomes even more hilarious when it is revealed she's seen ''Star Wars'' 368 times, and was hoping to break 400 by Memorial Day.
** And in the infamous episode "Home", Scully mentions having babysat her nephew the previous weekend, and claims that he watches ''Film/{{Babe}}'' "fifteen times a day".
* In the ''Series/{{Friends}}'' episode "The One With The Prom Video," Monica says that Roy, her prom date, had seen ''StarWars'' 317 times. His name was in the paper. (At the time of the clip, set in 1984, the movie was only available on laserdisc; however, it had been re-released to theatres multiple times since its original 1977 run).
* ''Series/StargateSG1'':
** Teal'c has seen ''Franchise/StarWars'' ten times. Not that large a number compared to some on this page, but the humor comes from the fact that he's a FishOutOfWater, unfamiliar with Earth culture... except movies. He recognizes [[Franchise/DieHard John McClane's name]] and, upon having the concept of a virgin conception described to him, immediately thinks of Darth Vader.
** In another episode, the joke is reversed when it's revealed that O'Neill has not seen Star Wars ''even ONE time'' and Carter considers ''him'' to be the weird one.
-->'''O'Neill:''' Oh, come on Carter. [[HypocriticalHumor You know me and sci-fi]].
* In ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', when Carlton's ex-girlfriend comes back with a baby she claims is his, Will explains to Phil and Vivian that the baby belongs to "a young man who has seen ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' 8 times."
* Humorously used in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAzwTHBLGOg#t=00m15s this scene]] in ''Series/TheWonderYears'' episode "Eclipse" where Chuck, who is uncomfortable with the creepy man who picked him up while he was hitchhiking, tries to lighten the mood by sharing how he's reminded of an ''Series/AlfredHitchcockPresents'' story about a man with "a big butcher knife" who was picking up hitchhikers. Getting creeped out by the man again, Chuck decides to drop the discussion, leading to the following exchange:
-->'''Chuck:''' Nevermind, probably didn't see the episode[[{{Beat}} ...]] Did you?
-->'''Creepy Guy:''' 27 times! ''[creepy stare]''
:: Chuck quickly leaps out of the moving pickup truck.
* In ''Series/TopGear'', the Stig's African cousin has seen ''Disney/TheLionKing'' 1,780 times.
* In ''Series/LoisAndClark'', Perry White mentions having seen ''[[Film/TheReturnOfGodzilla Godzilla '85]]'' on cable over a hundred times because he liked seeing Creator/{{Elvira|MistressOfTheDark}} present it.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'' has a moment like this with one of their new characters, Sam, who, up till that moment, seemed like just your average jock. When helping him clean up some blue slushie stains that he'd gotten on his uniform, Quinn mentions that it can dye your clothes "Like those aliens in ''Film/{{Avatar}}''." Sam's immediate reaction is "I watched that film seven times! Lor menari," (apparently, it's "you have beautiful eyes" in Na'avi.)
* British comedian Toby Hadoke played a character in ''Series/HolbyCity'' who shamelessly boasted how many times he had seen ''Film/TheMatrix'', the slight irony being that Hadoke himself is [[OneOfUs famously enthusiastic]] about ''Series/DoctorWho''.
* On ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', Tracy Morgan once said he's seen ''StarWars'' 500 times.
* In the ''Series/SportsNight'' episode "Thespis", after Jeremy gives Dana some sage advice, she gives him the backhanded compliment, "You know, for a guy who's read ''Literature/TheHobbit'' 14 times, you're not so dumb."
* In ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', Sheldon Cooper mention having played 3,000 hours of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''.
** Penny often can't understand why the gang of four rewatch movies like ''StarWars'' so many times, especially one time when they were going to a theatrical showing of ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' to see a promised 20 seconds of never before seen footage.
* On ''Series/GoOn'', Mr. K claims to have seen ''MaryPoppins'' over 500 times... but not by choice. "It's a compulsion known as supercalifragilisticexpialidocia."
* In the ''Series/ISpy'' episode "So Long Patrick Henry", Kelly is annoyed that Scotty hired a kid to be a lookout for them who was constantly making ''Film/JamesBond'' references, having seen the still in theatres film ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' 27 times.
* In a special episode of ''Series/SiskelAndEbert'' in which the critics pick their all time favorite scenes of specific genres, Gene Siskel picked for Best Musical Scene the dancing contest scene from ''Film/SaturdayNightFever''. Roger Ebert remarked he "could have guessed that would be the movie you would pick, since I know you've seen that film 27 times."
* In the ''Series/TheSopranos'' episode "A Hit Is a Hit", one-off GangstaRap exec Massive Genius expresses his admiration for the ''Cosa Nostra'' by saying he had watched ''Film/TheGodfather'' "like 200 times."
* Creator/TheBBC television and radio series ''I've Never Seen Star Wars'' uses the opposite of this as it's premise. British celebrities came on the show and tried out various things they'd never done before such as listening to ''Thriller'' by Music/MichaelJackson, reading ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode'' or eating a Big Mac.
* ''Series/TheMiddle'' revealed that Axl Heck knows about black holes from ''Film/HotTubTimeMachine'' many times, CelebrityParadox[[note]]Charlie [=McDermott=], who plays Axl also played Chaz in the movie[[/note]] be damned!

-->[[ArcNumber Twenty-seven]] times this week.
* From the song "Nineteen Something" by Mark Willis:
-->Saw ''Franchise/StarWars'' at least eight times, had the ''VideoGame/PacMan'' pattern memorized.
* The song "Livin' It Up" by Music/LimpBizkit has Fred Durst bragging about having "seen the ''Film/FightClub'' about twenty-eight times". Given the context of the song, though, as well as Limp Bizkit's general output, it's likely that Durst is part of the film's MisaimedFandom.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* From a ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' SundayStrip of the early 1970s:
-->'''Snoopy as Joe Cool:''' I see they're showing ''Film/CitizenKane'' again… I've only seen it 23 times.
** Charles Schulz used ''Citizen Kane'' for this a few times. The strip where Lucy [[ItWasHisSled spoils the ending]] for Linus has her say she's seen it "about 10 times", and there's another strip where Sally is in the movie theater line behind Linus talking about how she's pretending they're on a date, until Linus gets to the box office and says, "One, please!"

--> '''Andy:''' I know, but when I'm in the theater it's like everyone's still alive for those six hours.
--> '''Roger:''' Um, don't you mean three hours?
--> '''Andy:''' I can't drive all the way to the cineplex and just see it once.
** In another series of strips, Peter gets a job as a theater cashier on the eve of ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ThePhantomMenace''. After rattling off all the showtimes to a kid in a Sith costume, the kid asks for six tickets.
--> '''Peter:''' To which showing?
--> '''''Star Wars'' Fanboy:''' One of each, obviously.
** Another strip has Jason camping out (on his computer server) to get tickets to see ''Film/AttackOfTheClones''.
--> '''Jason:''' Guess who has eight tickets to see ''Star Wars''?
--> '''Paige:''' Who's going with you?
--> '''Jason:''' My friend, Marcus.
--> '''Paige:''' I'm confused.
--> '''Jason:''' Guess who has tickets to four consecutive showings of ''Star Wars''?
** In another strip, Jason and Marcus go to the movies to see the re-released Star Wars trilogy. The entire trilogy, back to back. Three times. Because it's a trilogy.
** An early strip has Peter renting the movie ''Film/RaisingArizona'', which Paige says Peter has seen about four zillion times. He explains it's because Holly Hunter is in it. Paige says "Oh, '''that's''' a reason". However, it turns out the video store screwed up and gave Peter a tape of ''Film/DirtyDancing''. Paige wants to watch it, and Peter says she has seen it eight billion times. Paige explains it's because Patrick Swayze is in it, resulting in the IronicEcho of Peter saying, "Oh, '''that's''' a reason."

* This is the premise of ''Podcast/TheWorstIdeaOfAllTime'', where the two hosts, Tim Batt and Guy Montgomery, watch the same film once a week and then review it for a year for each season. There is a reason for the podcast's title, though -- namely because the subjects the duo pick for the podcast aren't exactly films that are known for being great or just alright or not even SoBadItsGood, but rather some that are remembered for being rather bad at worst and somewhat pedestrian at best, such as ''Film/GrownUps2'', ''Film/SexAndTheCity2'', and ''Film/WeAreYourFriends''.

* In ''Theatre/BeyondTheFringe'', one sketch is about a man who has seen an unnamed theatre show nearly 500 times, because he'd heard a rumour that members of the royal family were going to attend... someday.

Bart (who has been grounded from seeing the movie after failing to watch Maggie) tries to joke that the two must have been sick of seeing it and ends up getting chased by Nelson and Milhouse, because they know he would make that joke if he hadn't seen the movie himself.
** In "Co-Dependents Day", after the latest ''[[WritingAroundTrademarks Cosmic Wars]]'' movie "The Gathering Shadow" is a disappointment, Comic Book Guy makes the following comment.

** In an earlier episode, Hank mentions having rented ''The Great Santini'' 23 times.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' Summer Vacation movie, Foulmouth has seen Skunknophobia a hundred times. When he takes Shirley to it, he pretty much spoils the whole movie by talking about what is going to happen while annoying the people in the theater, and is eventually thrown into the movie screen and into the actual film itself. The actors complain about Foulmouth talking during the film, and then they throw him into a theater door, which makes the audience cheer.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' episode "Spaced Out," Dog wanted to see the Mean Bob movie for the 73rd time.

* This phenomenon is very common with children. They love repetition and are at an age where they are far more immersed in stories, because they are still discovering the world. Plus: they are not yet aware of or bothered by clichés and platitudes. If it holds their attention: then they feel it's good.
* According to some stories, Creator/AlecGuinness (Obi-Wan Kenobi) was once asked for an autograph by a fan who claimed to have watched [[Film/ANewHope the first]] ''Film/StarWars'' film a hundred times. Alec gave him the autograph but only under the condition that he never watch it again.

** Ironically Guinness himself was not immune to this -- he never traveled anywhere without taking an Creator/AnthonyTrollope novel to re-read.
* The 2009 film ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' spawned many examples of this. [[http://www.avatar-forums.com/showthread.php?t=4333 Several]] [[http://www.avatar-forums.com/showthread.php?t=4140 threads]] exist on one Avatar forum relating to how many times each poster has seen the movie.

* Fans of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' are well known for this. Somebody who's seen the film twenty times is still a neophyte. A few fans claim to have watched the film over 1,000 times, equivalent to [[FridgeHorror once a week for twenty years]].
** It's common for live casts to fish out first-time viewers ("virgins") by having the entire audience stand, then sit as they count down how many times they've seen the film [[note]]''In a theater'', as watching it at home is "just masturbation"[[/note]].
* In the first of his autobiographies, ''Literature/MoabIsMyWashpot'', Creator/StephenFry stated that in his schoolboy days, he and a few friends went to see ''Film/AClockworkOrange'', ''Film/TheGodfather'' and ''Film/{{Cabaret}}'' over and over, each one having different elements that appealed to him at the time.

After the 27th viewing, the theatre started letting him in for free.
* Creator/ChristopherLee has stated that he had read ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' trilogy all the way through every year for decades. It was for this reason that he was one of the main consultants for [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings the Peter Jackson films]].
* Alas, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Hinckley_Jr John Hinckley, Jr.]] watched ''Film/TaxiDriver'' 15 times in a row and got the [[MisaimedFandom entirely wrong idea]] from it, stalking [[Creator/JodieFoster an actress in it]], and attempting to assassinate [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan the President]] (something ''like'' in the movie) because she wasn't impressed.
