10 Worst Movie Lines Ever

Thursday, February 17 by Layla Sinclair

The 10 worst movie lines ever are so bad they have become laughable. You’ll either shudder or get a kick out of the ridiculous lines these screenwriters came up with and the horrible deliveries given by the actors. 

  1. “You had me at hello.” Renee Zellweger uttered this worst movie line ever at the end of “Jerry Maguire.” Not only was it trite and gooey, but it also proved what a horrible sap her character was. Most of the movie holds up well, but this line at the ending almost ruined it. 
  2. “Hey everyone! Just chill!” This worst movie line comes from Arnold Schwarzenegger in the abysmal superhero sequel “Batman and Robin.” As the villain Mr. Freeze, Schwarzenegger lets loose with one temperature pun after another. There’s so many that it will actually make you cringe or maybe even freeze.
  3. “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” Oh really? Because for anyone who has ever been in love, staying together is all about apologizing for the stupid or hurtful things you do. “Love Story,” a sappy but popular movie from the 1970s, sure got this basic truth wrong.
  4. “It’s turkey time. Gobble gobble.” This worst movie quote is from what might be the worst movie of all time: “Gigli.” Jennifer Lopez utters these lines as a come-on to Ben Affleck’s character. Instead of being sexy, it’s laughable and bizarre beyond belief.
  5. “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” Patrick Swayze said these worst movie lines about his lover, nicknamed Baby in “Dirty Dancing.” The fact that her name is Baby should be bad enough, but this horrible line provides for a ridiculous scene.
  6. “Ditto.” Poor Patrick Swayze gets another spot on the list for this horrible line said in “Ghost.” Demi Moore’s character eloquently expresses her love for Swayze and he can only reply with that simple word. In real life, a girlfriend would probably send her boyfriend to the couch for the night if he responded to an “I love you” in such a manner.
  7. “I’m king of the world!” Everyone should know where this line comes from: Leonardo DiCaprio in “Titanic.” The line is a little ironic, since his character will soon be sinking to the ocean floor, but the line is also forced and cliche.
  8. “The dingo took my baby!” Even though the movie is based on a real story and these lines were uttered by Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep, this statement is one of the worst movie lines for its utter absurdity. “A Cry in the Dark” shows Streep screaming this line over and over in a ridiculously thick Australian accent.
  9. “I don’t like sand. It’s course and rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere.” These very unnecessary and unromantic lines are uttered by Anakin Skywalker in his attempt to woo Padme in “Star Wars: Episode II.” There were so many bad movie lines to choose from, but this one takes the cake.
  10. “You know, hot dogs get a bad rap. They got a cool shape, they got protein.” This completely bizarre line is featured in M. Night Shyamalan’s dud, “The Happening.” This worst movie quote is just one of many irrelevant lines delivered by the two-dimensional characters in the film.
