So do you think you’ve noticed how bad these lines when you saw the movies?

I personally don’t see what is silly about some of the bad lines mentioned below. However, there are some of the lines that you really can’t help thinking how stupid it was.

THE MOVIE: Notting Hill (1999)

THE SCENE: Famous Hollywood actress Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) is attempting to convince bookish William (Hugh Grant) to give her another chance.
THE LINE: ”I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”

THE MOVIE: Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith (2005)

THE SCENE: Natalie Portman’s Amidala tries to get her hubby, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), to give up his megalomaniacal Dark Side ways.
THE LINE: ”Hold me, like you did by the lake on Naboo.”

THE MOVIE: Jerry Maguire (1996)

THE LINE: ”A bird may love a fish, signore, but where will they live?”

THE MOVIE: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992)

THE SCENE: Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) tearfully breaks up with her boyfriend and heads to her death.
THE LINE: ”I’m gone, like a turkey in the corn. Gobble gobble!”

THE MOVIE: X-Men (2000)

THE SCENE: Weather-mistress Storm (Halle Berry) finally gets the upper hand during a fight with fellow mutant Toad (Ray Park) and delivers this très witty bon mot.
THE LINE: ”You know what happens when a toad gets struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else.”

THE MOVIE: Sin City (2005)

THE SCENE: Gutter avenger Dwight (Clive Owen) is watching lovingly as the woman of his dreams (Rosario Dawson) guns down a bevy of prostitute-hating baddies.
THE LINE: ”My warrior woman. My valkyrie. You’ll always be mine, always and never. Never. The Fire, baby. It’ll burn us both. It’ll kill us both. There’s no place in this world for our kind of fire.”

THE MOVIE: Pretty Woman (1990)

THE SCENE: Hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold Vivian (Julia Roberts) looks down her fire escape to see her favorite ”John” Edward (Richard Gere) climbing up to ”rescue her” from her crappy life.
THE LINE: ”And she rescues him right back.”

THE MOVIE: She’s All That (1999)THE SCENE: Laney (Rachael Leigh Cook) is on the receiving end of the makeover of a lifetime, transforming her from meek geek to high-school hottie.
THE LINE: ”I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. You know, except for the whole hooker thing.”

THE MOVIE: Love Story (1970)

THE SCENE: After Oliver (Ryan O’Neal) spends all day searching the Harvard campus to apologize to his doomed lover (Ali MacGraw), she delivers the most lunkheadedly inaccurate romantic proclamation ever.

    most of these lines are cheesy especially the one’s from romanic comedies, but their oh so heart-warming when you see it on film.

    I don’t see how the cavemen line from As Good as it Gets made the WORST lines list. Maybe it was no “Here’s lookin’ at you, Kid” (classic), but I liked it. Granted, it was a line from a gay artist to a straight woman who ended up with the old guy (though Jack was awesome in this film!)…but it was still good. Far better than, “You make me want to be a better man” (line by itself is okay, but the lead up to it, talking about taking psycho pills kind of detracts).

    ”Love means never having to say you’re sorry,” is absolutely the worst, because it is incredibly untrue!

    • Andre said,

      Actually it is true. Love does mean you never have to say sorry. Because true love is unconditional where two people do not get caught up in right and wrong, good and bad. Just that everything serves and every action or inaction in some way helps you to grow.
      You if you truelly unconditionally love somebody then the only response can be ‘Thank you, I love you’

      • Claire said,

        You’re wrong. Even if you love and are loved back you have to say “I’m sorry.” TTrue love just means that you’ll always been forgiven. (Thats not the same!)

      • JJ said,

        Actually love means having to say you’re sorry all the time. You’ll apologise even when you shouldn’t have to and compromise even when you don’t want to because you do what you must to keep your loved one happy, and if your partner does the same yo ed up with a balanced considerate and caring relationship that lasts.

        Never say sorry to your partner. See how long they stick around.

    I like all those, they are cheesy but they are romantic and hopeful. However, The Love Story Line was pretty terrible. “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” That is a load of bs. Love is all about being able to forgive and forget and SAYING SORRY I SCREWED UP. Honestly. As far as a “Dingo ate my baby!” That’s just comical.

    You are why cavemen chiseled on walls is actually pretty flattering, and poetic, not cheesey at all.

  21. Remarkable things here. I am very satisfied to see your article. Thank you a lot and I am having a look forward to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a mail?

    How about “The hard part of playing chicken is knowing when to flinch” from The Hunt for Red October…Duh!

  23. JJ said,

    The Greg Kinnear line from As Good as It Gets is, in context completely devastating to the model. You’d have to be an artist or photographer to understand just how powerful a compliment like that – which may seem unutterably corny in isolation – is in a modelling situation.

    In situ a line like that will snap knicker elastic at 100 feet.
