Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.
Honestly, that is a near-perfect movie. It never lets up even though it's over two hours long; the characters are fun and interesting, make realistic decisions, and develop naturally; there are great action setpieces throughout; and it's funny and dramatic with just the right amount of creepiness. I think people still have relatively fond memories of it, despite the sequels, but it really is so much better than any of the films that came after I wouldn't be surprised if most people have forgotten it.
When I was in high school, whenever I didn't have anything to do I'd almost always say, well, why not watch Pirates, which is how I've ended up watching it so many times. I'd like to watch it again, actually!
