* 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!" Cut to Sally in front of the TV.
-->'''Charlie Brown:''' I thought you were going to the movies.\\
'''Sally:''' I am. I'm watching ''Citizen Kane'' for the eighth time.
** In the November 12, 1976 strip, Schroeder mentions that his grandfather has seen ''Series/VictoryAtSea'' twelve times.
* ''ComicStrip/{{FoxTrot}}'':
** In a series of strips, Roger gets concerned over Andy watching ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' way too many times:
--> '''Roger:''' Watching it over and over isn't going to change the ending...the boat ''sinks!'' It's sad but what's done is done!
--> '''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."
* In ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'', Jon once takes Liz to the movie '' The Sludge Monster Meets Vermin Man'', which he and Garfield already saw eight times.
