Sunday, April 17 by Robin Raven

When you are at a loss for how to describe the absurdities and truths within your own relationships or if you simply want to write a witty quote on a loving greeting card, consider these funny movie quotes about relationships. While these quotes range from ironic to traditional comic lines, they are sure to get your loved one laughing. Giggles may also ensue.

  1. "Crimes and Misdemeanors"-Woody Allen has won most cinematic awards for his comedic, yet serious, work. Here's a great line about love from this film that was written and directed by Allen: "My husband and I fell in love at first sight. Maybe I should have taken a second look."
  2. "Jurassic Park"-While this movie is not in the romance genre, those who have been through the ringer are sure to relate to this quote from the character Ian Malcolm, "I'm always on the lookout for the next ex-Mrs. Malcolm." 
  3. "When Harry Met Sally"-This movie stars Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. It asks whether a man and a woman can be friends without it turning into something else. Here's one of its dire, yet funny, observations: "All I'm saying is that somewhere out there is the man you are supposed to marry, and–if you don't get him first–somebody else will. And you'll have to spend the rest of your lif knowing that somebody else is married to your husband."
  4. "Practical Magic"-This movie is a great film starring two actresses who have since won Academy Awards: Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. The character of Gillian sums things up simply, "You ever put your arms out and spin really, really fast? Well, that's what love is like."
  5. "Spellbound"-In this class film, Ingrid Bergman's character observes, "People read about love as one thing, and experience it as another. But then they expect kisses to be like lyrical poems and embraces like Shakespearean dramas."
  6. "Xanadu"-In this 1980s movie about Greek muse, a roller disco, and following your dreams, the character of Kira seeks to avoid getting-to-know you small talk by saying, "No questions, no lies." Sonny counters, "No questions, no truth, either." 
  7. "Conspiracy Theory"-The character of Alice says something darkly funny that no woman wants to hear about a potential love, "This guy's a restraining order waiting to happen." When that's evident in advance, much heartbreak can be avoided.
  8. "Four Weddings and a Funeral"-This critically acclaimed English comedy offers this memorable quote: "I always just hoped that I'd meet some nice, friendly girl…like the look of her, hope the look of me didn't make her physically sick, then pop the question. And, um, settle down and be happy. It worked for my parents. Well, apart from the divorce and all that."
  9. "The Virgin Suicides"-The narrator of the film sums up how young guys sometimes feel about young girls they love. "We knew the girls were really women in disguise, that they understood love, and even death, and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them."
  10. "The Wedding Date"-A quote from this film sums up the hilarious and outrageous truth about the unexplainable part of love: "I think I'd miss you even if we never met."
