Star Wars and Dirty Dancing are the films people most love to watch over and over again, according to a poll.

The Star Wars trilogy topped the list of most-watched movies for male film fans and came second on the list for women, the Sky Movies survey said.

Fantasies and thrillers dominated the male top 10, with The Terminator, Aliens and Blade Runner highly placed.

On the female list, Grease, The Sound of Music and Pretty Woman completed the top five.

Star Wars, The Terminator, Jaws and The Lord of the Rings trilogy were in the top 10 lists for both sexes - with 50% of respondents saying they had watched the Star Wars films more than 20 times.
