    The Thin Red Line and The grand Budapest Hotel both have large very good casts.

    "Why does a dog wag its tail?" Brean asks at one point. "Because the dog is smarter than the tail. If the tail was smarter, it would wag the dog."

    I added Airplane 2 to this thread earlier and then deleted it because let's face it, it's a disaster flick at heart and they always have loaded casts. But if you haven't seen the movie lately, go through the cast list on IMDB, it's pretty impressive. Probably more TV actors than movie stars but both are well represented - everyone from General Burkhalter to the guy that knocked over the ficus plant in The American President.

    I agree. I read the serial novels as they were released and thought they did a terrific job of bringing the story to the big screen. Personally, I feel Michael Clarke Duncan was robbed of a Best Supporting Actor Oscar that year.

    I'm going to throw out there Glengarry Glen Ross. It's a small setting so not a lot of people but everyone in it is top notch. It really had a fantastic cast:
    Al Pacino
    Jack Lemmon
    Alec Baldwin
    Alan Arkin
    Ed Harris
    Kevin Spacey
    Jonathan Price
