      Nice to see "Midnight Run" here....great movie! Good call on Samwise too....the real hero (besides Aragorn and Boromir). I would really add Del Griffith (played by John Candy) in "Planes, Trains....". He was great in that one! A guy you really feel with and feel for. Even it's Comedy, John Candy gave this character life....

      Any wrongs were righted with Marty McFly as #1. And Emmitt Brown for good measure.

      Good list, glad to see The Dude here. Disagree with Juno and Annie Walker.. two terrible films. Dale and Saul from Pineapple Express should be here as well as Seth from Superbad and Tyler Durden.

      Are you kidding? Alvy Singer is one of the most unlikable characters, in my opinion. Along with Carrie from Four Weddings and a Funeral.

      And where is the Don Vito the Godfather [Brando and De Nero] come on they killing MTF gangstas yet we rooted for them And Bill in "Kill Bill 1 and 2" they were the most lovely characters ever. And what about the Rigges in Lethal Weapon he was depressed but a fun one to around the list is lacking

      http://www.videodetective.com/movies/army-of-darkness/3063 How was Ash Williams not on this list? Bruce Campbell's performance wonderfully portrayed the character's transition from horror movie victim to horror movie hero; from Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 and then to Army of Darkness there is lots of character growth. That is surprising when looking at a silly series like Evil Dead. Ash is strong and so very fun to watch; not since John Constantine, the comic book character, has there been someone so sardonic in the face of Eldrich Evil. Even though it is a cult movie, Ash should definitely be on a likable character list.

      I hope you know the picture you have under Annie Walker, isn't Piper Perabo.
