Videos: Peyton Manning's five favorite movies and why they're key to understanding him

During an interview yesterday on KOA (click here to listen to it), Peyton Manning listed his five favorite movies -- all comedies from 1979 to 1985. He added that teammates need to watch the flicks, because otherwise when he quotes from them, the players won't have any idea what the hell he's talking about.

To assist future Broncos, we've assembled clips from the top five, in the order Manning listed them, with quotes from each (courtesy of IMDB) and situations when they might be used. Enjoy -- and you're welcome!
