Poor Bill Murray

According to a poll of "2,000 U.K. moviegoers" (Not a very good cross-sampling. I have no idea why this was newsworthy), Titanic's “I’m the king of the world!” is the cheesiest movie line ever. But I have to add my own:

"They say an elephant never forgets. But the truth is: you never forget an elephant." Larger Than Life: Bill Murray

Anyway, here's the rest of the list:
Titanic: Leonardo DiCaprio’s “I’m the king of the world!”
Dirty Dancing: Patrick Swayze’s “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.”
Four Weddings And A Funeral: Andie McDowell’s “Is it still raining? I hadn’t noticed.”
Ghost: Demi Moore’s “Ditto,” to Patrick Swayze’s “I love you.”
Top Gun: Val Kilmer to Tom Cruise: “You can be my wingman anytime”
Notting Hill: Julia Roberts’ “I’m just a girl... standing in front of a boy... asking him to love her.”
Independence Day: Bill Pullman’s “Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”
Braveheart: Mel Gibson’s “They may take our lives, but they will not take our freedom!”
Jerry Maguire: Renee Zellweger to Tom Cruise: “You had me at hello.”
The Postman: A blind woman says to Kevin Costner: “You’re a godsend, a savior.” He replies: “No, I’m a postman.”

They could have included just about anything from the Swayze movie Roadhouse. You know, the movie about the PhD bouncer.

A sample:

Woman: "You must be tired."
Bouncer: "I'll get all the sleep I need when I die".

I vote for "Wind Beneath My Wings"-- it's a song from a film, I realize, but it's cornball central and a long-term cultural hangover resulted.

I would say that anything that comes out of the mouth of Ben Affleck. Now there is a guy who can take a good line and ruin it.

Oop I made a mistake...Don't cry shop girl don't cry is you've got mail which bugs me
You've got mail is actually a super good movie.
my bad
I have never used the term my bad before and wanted to give the saying a try.
If you tell me it is outdated you can talk to the hand.

The entire script to the movie, "My Best Friend's Wedding". That movie annoyed me.

Case in point: Julia Roberts, "I've got moves you've never seen..."

I loved Roadhouse - My favorite line:
"A polar bear fell on me!"
Oh that will never not be funny.

Maybe not the cheesiest, but the greatest totally nonsensical line in the history of cinema is Wesley Snipes in Blade, saying "Some muthaf*cker's always trying to ice skate uphill."

I noticed that Kevin Costner made the list. He is, quite possibly, the WORST actor of all time in my opinion. I mean, really. Listen to the man speak. He is so monotone he sounds like he's reading everything off the teleprompter. It's awful! If you don't believe me, watch Dances with Wolves or Robin Hood again. I know this doesn't have anything to do with cheesy movie lines, but my annoyance with Costner just came out of me when I read his name just now.

~~sigh~~ Had to get that off my chest.

MommyT, I LOVE Kevin Costner.
I would pay money to watch him bake cookies.
Or do about anything else for that matter.
Watch Bull Durham. or Field of Dreams, or For the Love of the Game. ahh...

To each his own, but sounds like you enjoy WATCHING him, not actually LISTENING to him. Maybe I'll try watching one of those movies you suggested with the sound turned off, that's probably the only way I could enjoy a Kevin Costner movie.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2:10 PM  

You gotta listen!
One of the best movie lines ever :
Well I believe in the soul... the cock...the pussy... the small of a woman's back... the hangin' curveball... high fiber... good scotch... that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent overrated crap... I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a Constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days. Goodnight.

Kevin Costner - PUKE. Could he *be* in one more baseball movie?? What an egomaniac...

By Blogger Kiddo78, at 5:19 PM  

I am not sure what movie this is from but Ben Affleck said "How do you like your eggs in the morning, scrambled or fertilized?"

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 12:47 PM  

My fave remains: "I don' know nothin' 'bout birthin' no babies!" *THWAP!* -- Gone With the Wind

By Blogger Dennis!, at 2:12 PM  

That Regurgitation-Worthy comment is from "2oo Cigarettes" and it makes want to slap the lecherous grin right off Ben's face.
