What's missing from our list of the Worst Movie Dialogue Ever?

Showgirls_lAt a time of year when we’re reminded of the best that movies have to offer, let’s not forget that some of Hollywood’s best have also had to say some of the worst lines ever written for the screen. Check out our new Worst Movie Dialogue Ever gallery — and then feel free to complain here about your favorite lame lines that were left off the list. (Me, I’m disappointed that we couldn’t find room for any of the many howlers from Showgirls. Admittedly, most of them are unprintable, but one that’s SFW is when Elizabeth Berkley’s Nomi, pictured, is trying to bond with Gina Gershon’s Cristal and squeals, "I used to love Doggy Chow, too!" Good times.) Go ahead, show us your good taste in bad taste in the comments section below.

    Gary, my man, if we’re going to talk about dialogue from “Showgirls”, I think we have to go with Kyle McLachlan’s Zack and his underrated quote when threatening an employee…
    Employee: “Nothing happened, she’s jumping to conclusions!”
    Zack:”…And if it happens again, you’re gonna jump to YOUR conclusion!”

    Remember ‘Cocktail’? Tom Cruises’ character tries explaining away his betting his buddies he can fall into bed with an older rich gal, to Elizabeth Shue’s character in this way….
    ‘When a guy lays down a dare, you gotta take it.’
    What kind of stupid crap is that??? In reality, Shue’s character would have given him a swift knee to the genitals and given him the boot. UGH!

    My sister and I paraphrase this stomach-turning quote from A Walk to Remember (a terrible movie) all the time:
    “Jamie saved my life. She taught me everything. About life, hope and the long journey ahead. I’ll always miss her. But our love is like the wind. I can’t see it, but I can feel it.”

    What? No mention of Titanic’s “I’m king of the world!”?

  • Catherine

    Hmmm…choosing just one is proving difficult. One of my favorite (although I use it almost on a daily basis) is from Point Break “She was my woman, once. We shared time in this world.” What a movie!!!
    I also have to disagree from the list about Dirty Dancing, the watermelon scene is a classic!!!

  • Verity

    I have to agree with Catherine regarding the watermelon line from Dirty Dancing. Much as I loathe that movie, the line was supposed to be bad. Baby even scoffs at her own ridiculousness after saying it. A better DD selection for this topic would have been “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.” All together now…*eye roll*

    The worst is from Center Stage: “You didn’t have the feet, but I don’t have the heart.” And I third the bad call of including the Dirty Dancing watermelon line – that’s one of my favorite lines in any movie ever! It’s obviously supposed to be awkward…and Jennifer Grey’s delivery is just perfection.

  • Ames

    This line is from many movies. But my favorite is from Behind Enemy Lines, when the classic outburst alerts the enemy to the fact that he is behind enemy lines. Good job soldier!

    Actually I like the watermelon line – because 5 seconds later Baby realizes how stupid she sounded when she said it. My nomination is the ever famous, always remembered “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” What the heck?! Whenever we come across this movie on cable, my friends & I will sit and shout out bad line after bad line, “Rocky Horror” style, and believe me, this movie is all about the bad lines!

  • Silv

    OK, Verity said it all already – missed her when I was reading the posts and bow to her faster posting.

  • Chandra

    I love ‘Dirty Dancing’ but every time I hear that line “You’re wild!” after the breaking of the car window I cringe.

  • Jessica

    “I’m just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her.” from Notting Hill….pukegag

  • Nick

    I happen to like “The Spitfire Grill” (1997), but I recognize that this Sundance Audience Winner has some laughably funny lines: Will Patton’s “Coz Yer just not smaht enough.” and Allison Elliot’s “Johnny B! Johnny B!”
    Also, The Matrix’s “There Is No Spoon.”
    (And you folks are dead wrong about Notting Hill).

    How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, when Matthew McCantspellit’s character pitches his idea for the new diamond campaign..”Frost yourself…with diamonds!” If that was the one they put in the movie, how bad were the rejects?

  • Ceballos

    Hey, sorry, but I had to come back to show some love (if that’s the proper word in this topic) to that maestro of great dialogue, George Lucas in “Attack of the Clones”:
    Anakin: “I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything’s soft… and smooth…”
    Who knew Darth Vader was such a whiny rhymes with witch?
