What Is The Worst Line Of Dialogue In A Film?


#1

Mine is :



"[size=110]Do you know what happens to a toad when it is struck by lightning?..The same thing that happens to everything else.[/size]"

  • Spoken by Storm (Halle Berry) in X-Men.



    I fucking hate that shit line sooo much. I wanted to poke my eyes out with a fork when I heard that bollocks.



    So what lines piss you lot off?

#2

Yea, i remember watching that with my older brother, and he started bitching about how painfully stupid. Its like they wanted to say something cool, and just gave up.


#3

"Hold me like you did on Naboo.“

One of the new star wars movies. Fucking lucas.

"You wouldn’t kill anything unless it was alive” - Robert Taylor in Ride Vaquero

hahaha



Just found this one…



Anakin: You are so beautiful.

Padme: It’s because I am so much in love

Anakin: No, its because I am so in love with you.

YES!!



That line fucking did my head in. In fact, there was more to it than that. Something like “So love has blinded you?” hahahaha. It is the only thing in Revenge of the Sith that I hated. It made me cringe.


#5

Everytime when somebody points a gun at somebody else who immediately reacts with



"What do you wanna do, SHOOT ME?"


#6

Terminator 1 has some bad dialogue, but it’s so bad it gets good again.



Reese has just traveled back to our time.



“What’s the date!? The date!” - Reese, holding gun to cop’s face



The cop immediatly replies “12th. May. Thursday”



“WHAT YEAR!?”



and only after Reese asks “what year” the cop gives him a look like he’s crazy. as if holding a gun in somebody’s face and asking him what the date is isn’t crazy enough.



Alamo Guns Clerk: You can’t do that!

The Terminator: [shooting him] Wrong!



I think Im going to watch that movie again soon.


#7

Man, I so fucking want to watch that film, but the special edition DVD is like £20, so fuck that. I love that film, I grew up watching that and it’s sequel, they own.


#8

I always prefer T1 to T2. Schwarzenegger does not kill a single person in T2, and that kid playing John Conner irritates me. T1 is classic.

[/quote]Star Wars is not about the fucking dialogue, it’s supposed to be cheesy, its a fucking space fantasy not a drama. You want to hear good dialogue lines watch something else.

Umm…here i was thinking all movies should try to have good dialogue. If you have to make excuses for horrible stuff in your movies, you shouldnt be making them, or get someone to give you a hand. Also, since when was it SUPPOSED to be cheesy? The fucker just writes romance like a 12 year old. And it is a drama! what the fuck?


#11

Drama=Million Dollar Baby, Crash, Casablanca, etc. Space Fantasy= Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Lost In Space.


#12

I cannot stand:



“You broke my arm!”

“You shot my leg!”

"You broke my nose!"



Do people actually write those lines?

Ok, some of them deal with social issues, some are made up, that dosent mean the latter is devoid of drama.

#15

OK. You have 3 movies labeled DRAMA. These tend to deal with social issues. Since we live in a SOCIETY, they relate to us. The SPACE FANTASY you listed, obviously do not occur within our socities, but still have some of the same aspects of the others. Romance, Struggle, Death, etc. Despite the fact that one subject matter takes place on earth, and one takes place in a fictional planet, does not make it impossible for the latter to contain drama. They are simply different plots.


#16

I am with PB on this one. The dialogue of the prequels isn’t just cheesy, it’s childish, too simple and worse: it seperates the characters from it’s own world that is the star wars universe. I think the worst dialogue that makes you forget that the visuals are quite amazing…

You’re in there with the characters but get constantly kicked out by some aweful dialogue.

I think that fucked up the star wars experience for me.


#17

yall ever get goosebumps when yall hear a realli stupid line in a movie?


#18

Blade 3 - "Mothafucka"

Of course the whole movie sucked anyway.



Seven Samurai - "this child is just like me"

Never gets into it any deeper anywhere in the movie.



Rat Race - The whole I need your clothes scene.

Ruins an almost perfect comedy.



Fear and Loathing - "Hey! Did you do all this acid."

Everyone always says this line and its irritating since when I rented the movie this scene is where my vcr started eating the tape and haven’t seen the rest.
