Sometimes there are just certain movies that linger in your mind long after it’s over. It’s not always about the plot or the actors, but lines that come out of the movie which are either humorous or downright mean.
Lines from movies have taken their place in American society almost as much as quotes from historical figures. Just about everyone knows a line or two such as “Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn” (Clark Gable as Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind), “Go ahead make my day” (Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry Callahan in Sudden Impact), “Yo, Adrian!” (Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa in Rocky), “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse” (Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone in The Godfather), “You talking to me?” (Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver), and “Love means never having to say you’re sorry” (Ali McGraw as Jenny Cavilleri in Love Story). That list is endless.
Insults that are uttered by many a movie character are also unique, but unlike some of the famous quotes listed above they rarely only consist of just a line. Some insults are several sentences long, but are still as unforgettable as their quote counterparts.
While people often use movie quotes in their everyday life such uttering The Wizard of Oz’s “Toto I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore” when you find yourself in a strange place or situation or A Few Good Men’s “You can’t handle the truth” when you’re in an argument with someone you’re familiar with. Unfortunately repeating an insult that was used in a movie in your everyday life may not work out so well as people may not see the humor in it.
Often insults from movies can be rather harsh or vulgar depending on the movie and they aren’t suitable to repeat in general conversations. There are 10 movie insults that are memorable and are either G or PG-13 rated and here they are:
