Flicks in Pieces: Surf Stoppers



Flicks in Pieces is a weekly feature devoted not to entire movies, but to the individual parts of them that we love and loathe.

In a perfect world, we all sit down to watch a movie in its entirety, undistracted by commercials, incoming text messages, crying babies. But that almost never happens, and often we find ourselves channel-surfing before stumbling upon one of our favorite flicks on cable networks. And catching a glimpse of one moment is enough to grab us for another hour or so.

What movies have that "surf-stopper" power over you, that if you flip past and realize it's on, you're hooked?
