Exactly what it says.

What are the worst lines you've ever heard at the movies?

I ask this question because a few days ago Bass pointed out how silly the line "If the sun dies, we all die." is from Danny Boyle's upcoming Sunshine (which I am looking forward to)

Right now, I'm remembering that scene in Mission: Impossible where Tom Cruise is on a train and he uses the chewing gum explosive on Jean Reno and yells, "RED LIGHT! GREEN LIGHT!"

That was really stupid.

I loved that line.:?
So does my entire family. We use it to break awkward silences all the time.

Someone embarrasses himself at a Christmas reunion? "RED LIGHT! GREEN LIGHT!"

My brother lets out a big fart while bending over? "RED LIGHT! GREEN LIGHT!"

My sister and mother get into a big argument? "RED LIGHT! GREEN LIGHT!"

****ing hilarious silence-breaker, I **** you not.

I dunno. I hated Jim Gordon's "I gotta get me one of those" line from Batman Begins, but it definetly wasn't the worst movie line ever.

There was some truly awful dialouge in The Departed too, mainly due to it's level of cliche.

The worst line of 2006 though, was easily: "You're. Not. Seeing. The. Big. PICture!" ~ Lex Luthor, Superman Returns. Absolutely cringe-worthy, and close to scene-ruining.

"What happens to a toad when its struck by lightning? Same thing that happens to everything else."

Wtf! Though I think Halle Berry delivered it pretty well they couldn't think of anything more clever?:?

And I like the red light, green light line. In case you didn't know that's what the one character told that when giving him the gum.

Yes, I didn't forget that.

But I don't think it was really necessary to yell that out in the middle of the noisy din of a fast-moving train and chopper.

Regardless, it's hardly a 'cool' line.

Anything that comes out of Steven Segal's mouth.


I actually liked the Jim Gordon line, because it's real. Put any midwestern guy into the Batmobile, he'll say the same thing. I know this for a fact because I heard it come out of my dad's mouth when he test drove the Vette he now owns.

Meh. "I gotta get me one of those". It just seemed inappropriate. Thinking about it still angers me.

How about...

"Shazam."

I think that would've been better.

As for my worst line - as Ourchair points out, Sunshine's "If the sun dies, we all die" line is unbelievably retarded.

But here's two more, both from the God awful Dungeons & Dragons:

The Princess becomes the Queen and says, "I now proclaim you all equal."

Oh, so it's that ****ing easy is it, Princess Lollipop?!?!

But the worst line of the film, said with much vehemence:

"You thieves. Always taking things that don't belong to you."

To be fair, some thieves only take what belongs to them.

And when I was 11, I thought that that D&D movie was the best thing ever. I totally wanted to bang that elf chick.

From Jurassic Park 3:

Grant referring to the bottle of yellow liquid the kid is holding.
"What is that?"
"T-Rex piss."
"How did you get that?!"
"You don't wanna know."

Yeah, actually I do wanna know you smarmy little ****. Your story has holes the size of Texas.

Various Mr. Freeze quotes from Batman & Robin:

"Yow not seneeng mee tooo da COOOLAH!!!"
"ICE TOOO SEEE YOOOUUU!!!"
"What keeled dee dinosaws!? DA ICE AGE!!!"
"Allow mee to break dee ice! Mah name eez Freeze! Luhn it well. Foh itz dee cheeling zound of yoh doom!!!"
How about...

"Shazam."

I think that would've been better.

You can look at that two ways.

"Shazam" is probably the best, most versitile one-liner ever, but you have to use it carefully. One the one hand, Halle using it there would be pretty appropriate and a terrific geek moment for all of us. On the other, her portrayal of Storm has been...less that well received around here, and a lot of you would be no doubt complaining that she'd tainted the line. Not to mention that half the people in the theatre would probably think she was referencing Cleopatra Jones or Gomer Pyle.

I like the line in the movie. "It croaks" would've been great too, but I think the point was that it wasn't the standard witty one-liner that comic-book movies had become infamous for with B&R. It was blunt, cold, and serious. So I liked it.

That's so meaningfully politically retarded in so many ways.

Well if we only decided to take things that ALREADY belonged to us, we wouldn't need to take them now WOULD WE?!?!?!?

So, you finally saw this last week I'm presuming?

From Jurassic Park 3:

Grant referring to the bottle of yellow liquid the kid is holding.

"T-Rex piss."

"You don't wanna know."

..........

How would one get out TRex piss, what makes it so special from normal lizard piss? In fact, would it piss, because birds and lizards have pee in the poo, and that's how they would get rid of it.

And how would one obtain a bottle of TRex piss.

This is going to keep me up all night.

The T-rex piss was being used to ward off compies, which are the foot high mini-raptors.

I watched that movie with my mom the other day, and she couldn't understand why anyone would be confused about it, because she thought it was really obvious that he just stood under it while it was peeing.

Also, can I nominate every scene between the stupid divorced parents in that movie? When they were watching each other change and talking about how good each other looked, I was actually yelling "OH MY GOD SHUT UP HATE THIS MOVIE."
