Funny Love Quotes From Movies

Sunday, May 1 by Tom Gordon

Funny love quotes from movies often point to the crazy side of relationships and the ridiculous stuff we do to get in and stay in relationships. But some of the funny love quotes from movies on this list also note how love and relationships don't always last. But in the movies listed here, love is usually good for a few laughs along the way.

  1. "Arthur." In a church filled with wedding guests, Arthur (Dudley Moore) explains why they're won't be a wedding. He has shown up drunk and confessed to Susan (Jill Eikenberry) that he loves Linda (Liza Minelli). And while the guests were waiting patiently in the church, the sounds of tables being overturned and Arthur's shouts can be heard from behind a closed door. It seems Susan's father has threatened to kill Arthur because he's called off the wedding. To make it seem like it was Susan's decision, Arthur sums it all up while looking like hell after the fight with Susan's dad. Quote: "Susan has decided not to marry me. Most of you know me. Can you blame her?"
  2. "When Harry Met Sally."  In the last scene of the movie, Harry (Billy Crystal) runs up to Sally (Meg Ryan) at a New Year's Eve party and finally opens his heart to her with a funny speech about love. And for the first time, he confesses that all those moments when she would ask for her salads, desserts or meals in a very particular way with special requests, he was truly being charmed by her. And as much as he never wanted to admit it, Harry found himself wanting the woman with whom he had become best friends. Quote: "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… 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."
  3. "What's Up, Doc?" Judy (Barbra Streisand) explains to Howard (Ryan O'Neal) that he doesn't have to apologize for the chaos that landed them both in court. Howard had been in San Francisco to collect a music research grant and met Judy, an inscrutable, but appealing young woman who seemed to know more about what was going on than anyone else in this hilarious screwball comedy. The story followed the mix-up of suitcases that contained stolen jewels, secret government documents, ladies underwear and Howard's musical rocks. After having lost his fiance, Howard is on a plane returning home when he finds Judy in the seat behind him. Quote:  "Love means never having to say you're sorry." To which O'Neal, who had heard Ali McGraw say the same thing to him when he and McGraw starred in the movie "Love Story," replies, "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard."
  4. "Bridget Jones' Diary."  Near the end of this 2001 romantic comedy Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) tries to explain his feelings for Bridget (Rene Zellweger). She had been torn between the uptight but sincere Mark and flirtatious but completely unreliable Daniel (Hugh Grant), and Mark had been unable or unwilling to admit his feelings for Bridget until he realized he might lose her to Daniel. Quote:  "I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences… But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are."
