Anyone who knows me knows I have a thing for movies – romances in particular. No surprises there I guess J No matter how trashy or fluffy – I love ‘em. In fact if some snooty critic somewhere has given a romance a 1 star review then I’m probably going to love it the mostest. I own all my favs on DVD and would probably have watched each at least 20 times.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding when Toula says, “Are you kidding? Any second now he's gonna look at me and go, "Ha. Yeah, right, you're so not worth this." And then her brother say “Yes, you are. “ Okay, that one’s a brother sister moment but it’s still so sweet I tear up every time.
When Harry Met Sally where Harry says, “ I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” How can a girl say no to that?
Raising Helen where John Corbett says, ‘I got news for you little lady, I’m sexy... yeh... I’m a sexy man of God and I know it.” Awww. If she hadn’t have pashed him right then and there after that I most definitely would have!
Dirty Dancing. Probably one of the most recognisable lines in movie history when Patrick Swayze says, “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”
And I could go on forever!
But my point is – one of my favourite movie lines ever doesn’t come from a romance, it comes from an action movie. It comes from Die Hard - #4 to be exact.
“That’s what makes you that guy.”
And then Matt says, “That’s what makes you that guy.”
Every writer should be so lucky to write such an amazing line.So, after my incredibly rambly post, its over to you guys – got any favourite movie lines?
Oh and while you're thinking about it - here's the trailer full of Bruce Willis magic.
