'The Hangover' ranks No. 1 on all-time on-demanded list. How many of the Top 20 have you demanded?

Hangover-TysonImage Credit: Frank MasiAccording to a new industry study, The Hangover is the most-watched On Demand movie ever. Of course, On Demand has only been big for a few years, so “ever” in this case means “since the first CGI Alvin & the Chipmunks movie came out.” (That cinema classic squeaks on to the list at No. 6.) No. 2 went to Twilight, and No. 3 went to the slightly surprising Gran Torino.

Aside from that one Clint Eastwood drama, this is a list of popcorn movies — mostly comedies and romances of various sorts, with a couple of action flicks tossed in. They’re all the type of films I can easily see tons of people deciding to order on TV some random night. I think I might have even seen one or two of these movies On Demand myself. Not 10,000 BC (No. 19), though. That one I saw in theaters. Please don’t judge me.

    I’ve never seen any of these on demand, which is weird, because I’m a big OD person to supplement my netflix account.

    • elena

      there is a “web//site” named “black // white / Cupid” for dating or relationship, black or white singles can go there to find something sexy or beauty online !!!! ;)

  • JPX

    Wow, that list only confirms my long held belief that the average American is pretty stupid.

  • nodnarb

    On Demand… the movies you’re bored enough to watch once, but not something you’d ever want to own.

    • Ambient Lite

      Exactly. I think my last On Demand was Jennifer’s Body. heh

  • Madd

    I “demanded” 17 Again and loved it. Don’t judge me.
    Bride Wars? Really, America?

    • Ambient Lite

      You know what? I totally liked that too! And for the first time, I noticed Zac Efron IS cute.

      • caryn

        I saw it in the theater and I liked it too. But I always knew Zac was cute :) This movie also showed me that he’s a pretty decent actor.

    LOL Simon, I went to see “10,000 BC” in the theater as well, but I went with a bunch of other anthropology/archaeology graduate students because hey, it’s a cheesy-looking movie about our particular academic discipline, and we had the BEST time mocking the movie the whole way through and long afterwards as well. I’m not ashamed to admit that I now own this movie on DVD because it’s so terrible and just wrong, I kind of love it. Woolly mammoths surviving in a desert environment to build pyramids? You can ONLY make that sh-t up, and it’s spectacularly stupid! As for this On Demand list…yeah it’s pretty pointless because it’s been around for such a short time – I’ll give in another decade or so before I start paying attention to what the most On Demanded movies are.

  • Faris

    Hangover and Taken for sure. I just cannot get sick of theses two movies. Everyone I know (and me) think they’re guilty pleasure classics.

  • Sarah

    I have no idea how Fool’s Gold and 10,000 BC wound up on there, those movies are HORRIBLE!!

  • Richard

    Funny, The Hangover is the only On Demand movie I’ve ever ordered, and it was only because it was on “Very Long Wait” on Netflix for months. Maybe Netflix got shorted on copies, resulting in many people resorting to On Demand?

  • RyanK

    The movies on this last, aside from the top two, seem to be so random. It’s completely un-projectable. Very strange.

  • Eri

    My question is–were these for pay-per-view On Demand or did they include when movies are available as part of the premium channel On Demand menu? My cable system has On Demand that puts up movies as part of the premium package, which means you can watch them over and over ‘for free’ if you subscribe to something like HBO or Showtime. Twilight’s playing right now, which means you could watch it everyday if you were a Twihard without paying extra, kinda like a DVD.

  • heej

    These are movies that you may want to see, but do not want to pay top dollar because the odds are you will be disappointed. So you wait until it’s on demand.

    • Miss Talk

      Whatever girl. I can’t get tired of The Hangover.
      “Toodaloo m*thaf*ckaaaaa”

    • Nikki

      OMG! You are so right. I was VERY disappointed!

  • Al

    I’ve actually seen 16 of these, but only one (“The Proposal”) I paid to see On Demand.

    • Chiana

      I see, I susoppe that would have to be the case.

  • Jason

    On Demand movies are the last ditch effort movies. You’re too tired to go rent one and your in the mood for something not from your own collection… it’s a last resort. That’s why you see crappy movies on the list. It’s a “well, why not? got nothing better to do” movie choice. Some are good on here, that’s the surprise. Most of these are crappy, time-waster, one and dones.

  • Emma

    Haha, one very boring day my family and I On Demanded Four Christmases. It’s the only movie I’ve watched that way in a very long time.
