Pfft, almost every movie involves guns.

I just did ones that werent BASED on guns.

And if you want to say that, then take off Ace Ventura and Caddyshack, since there are guns in those.

And Tommy Boy/Black sheep, with the cop and the nitrous'd cop car.

LOTS OF GUNS in National Lampoons Vacation! Remember when they're at Wally World, and Chevy had John Candy hostage with a pelet gun. Then moments later an entire SWAT team draws down on them.

Edward Norton also shoots himself in the mouth at the end of the movie with some sort of Smith and Wesson Auto.

1. Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings series
2. Sen to Chihiro no kamakushi (Spirited Away)
3. Monty Python's The Life of Brian
4. House of Flying Daggers
5. Gladiator

There was a lot of stuff that I wanted to do but couldn't, like Donnie Darko (Donnie shoots the kid who runs over his girlfriend), Pirates of the Carribean (for obvious reasons), The Godfather (again, for obvious reasons), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (del Toro's character has a revolver), Twelve Monkeys, Brazil (the soldiers marching down the steps with guns while the carriage falls over), Fight Club (the aforementioned clerk, the gun that the narrator steals from the cops and uses several times), etc.

Now, for my personal top movies:

1. Equilibrium
2. Fight Club
3. The Matrix series
4. Pirates of the Carribean
5. Dr. Strangelove

PS Methinks gaspain likes mindfuck movies.

Well, let's see. Someone mentioned the Shawshank Redemption, but at least 2 people are killed by guns in that one. The Blue's Brothers has Carrie Fisher blasting away with an M16. The Big Lebowski had a gun in it, so I will go with movies about time periods before guns existed, such as Gladiator (with asshole Russel Crowe) and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. And I think that ET ( the extra testical) was a joke first made famous by The Unkown Comic (remember that jackass with the bag over his head?). sgtar15's pick of Deep Throat is a also a good bet for no guns unless you consider the " this is my rifle and this is my gun" analogy, then it has a cannon in it.

Link Posted: 7/27/2005 1:37:42 PM EDT
Dang, finding movies I like without guns or military themes in them is tough. I am assuming swordplay, police work, or martial arts knocks a movie off the list. You pretty much have to stick to comedies and dramas, and even there... Even otherwise non-violent SciFi usually has at least one gun scene (for example, Gattica). OK, not in any particular order, ones I like myself, not just appeasing the wife:

(1) Joe vs the Volcano
(2) Beautiful Girls
(3) Office Space
(4) A River Runs Through It
(5) Mystery Alaska

Honorable Mention: Caddyshack (1st half), Animal House, Happy Gilmour, Waterboy, 2001 Space Odysey. As these are the only other movies I could think of other than chick flicks that have no guns/miltary, they make the list.
