Worst piece of dialogue in a movie?

What’s the worst piece of dialogue you’ve ever heard in a movie?

My vote goes for the movie Blade, in which the title character utters this unforgettable nugget of wisdom, after slicing apart a troublesome vampire:

“Some motherf*ckers are always trying to ice skate uphill.”
No one could have delivered that line. God himself couldn’t have delivered that line.
What’s the worst line of dialogue you can think of in an otherwise-decent movie?

Oh, sod off - that’s a great line!

My candidate for worst line in an otherwise OK movie comes from Mortal Kombat, with the eternally cringeworthy:

“I couldn’t let that happen to you - not to you.”

The James Bond movie The World is Not Enough had the wonderfully talented Denise Richards snicker playing bond girl Dr. Christmas Jones.

Jones and Bond have just finished their lovemaking. A few words are exchanged as the last line of the movie is delivered: Bond: “And I thought Christmas came only once each year.”


This nugget from Puma Man sticks out:

(Spoken to a superhero confused about his newly-discovered powers:)

“You do not fly, but your mind does. Part of you is afraid, but the other you isn’t!”

Admittedly, the script was written by folks for whom English may not have been a native tongue, but as Crow says, “Yeah, thanks, Castaneda.”

So bad I doubt I need to include the name of the movies in which they were spoken:

• “Nobody puts baby in a corner!”

• “Do you know what happens to a toad that gets struck by lightning?”

• ::Throws large blunt metal pipe attached to nothing through Bennett’s body, steam inexplicably comes out:: “Let off some steam.”

• “I don’t like sand. It’s course and rough and irritating…”

Sorry, Dooku, but you do these two - at least, for me.

BLASHAMY!!! That’s an awsome line! In fact, not of Arnolds one liners should be in this thread…
…except for every line uttered by every character in Batman & Robin

Evil Death - The movies are ‘Dirty Dancing’ and ‘Commando’.

But which quote goes with which movie … ?

I could quote the entire movie.
“How did you know they were coming?”

“I smelled them.”

“I eat Green Berets for breakfast, and right now I’m hungry!!”

“Could you take care of my friend? He’s dead tired.” (Proceeds to jump off the tires of a plane just taking off, and land in a swamp unharmed)

The “I beseech you on behalf of my daughter” line from Kill Bill.
It was a movie that I loved but man that entire scene blows.

The story I’ve heard about the lighting and toad line from X-men; Joss Whedon actually wrote that line. He meant for the “Same thing that happens to everything else” final line to be delievered like Xander would. Making the line slightly humorous instead of grating.

“This is why Superman works alone.”
Yeah, yeah, yeah, shaddup Clooney.

Bryan Ekers reminded me of the terrible, horrible, no good very bad scene from Superman, wherein Superman and Lois fly around Manhattan while Lois recites the worst piece of shit poem I’ve ever heard.

"Can you read my mind?

Just a friend from another Star

Holding hands with a God
I’m a fool

You can fly!!
You belong in the sky!!"


She comes home from work…in about an hour and a half…graveyard…shift…at the hosp…ital…You…make some phone calls…gotta call some people…well then do it. (Pulp Fiction)

Terrible line delivered terribly. I can’t tell if he’s trying to be intense or having a bowel movement.

Can’t believe no one’s mentioned anything from Phantom Menance yet…

Shmi Skywalker: All slaves have a transmitter placed somewhere in their body.
Anakin: I’ve been working on a scanner to try and locate mine.
Shmi Skywalker: Any attempt to escape…
Anakin: And they blow you up! BOOM!
Jar Jar Binks: How wude!

and, of course:

Anakin: Yippee!

I saw a bit of Pearl Harbour recently ( no, I didn’t watch the whole thing, just a snippet) During the Japanese attack someone yells :

“I think World War Two just started” :rolleyes:

[paraphrase] “I don’t think you should judge other people’s blow jobs!” – White Palace. IIRC, that line was definitely not in Glenn Savin’s novel.

“You’ve got to climb Mount Everest to reach the Valley of the Dolls.”


TV Movie: The Langoliers…

“They destroy time in the most efficient way possible… they eat it.”

Dear Stephen, eat me.

The only flaw in an otherwise-wonderful Reservoir Dogs… during the opening coffee scene, where Mr. Brown is trying to talk about big dicks and gets distracted, he tries to get on track by saying:

“What the fuck was I talking about?”

As written, the line seems fine. However, the delivery in that scene was nothing short of awkward and jarring. I wonder how Quentin himself managed to muck that so poorly.

Frankly, I don’t think of it as much of a challenge to quote bad lines from bad movies. That’s like hand grenading fish in a barrel.

Sergeant Rutledge (a.k.a. Captain Buffalo), a 1960 western by John Ford, is about a black cavalryman in the 19th century standing trial accused of being the one who raped and murdered a young white woman. At the end of the movie, it’s proven that he’s innocent and that the crime was committed by one of the courtroom spectators. The real culprit then breaks down and delivers the least plausible confession I have ever heard. I can’t find a script for it; anyone?
