@lovejoy,
Ashley Judd's character Agnes White earnestly exclaiming:
Quote:
I am the super mother bug!


One of the most horrendously unintentionally funny movies ever made! Bug

@oolongteasup,
Without a doubt, John Wayne, woefully miscast as a Centurion in "The Greatest Story Ever Told." It wasn't just the line itself, it was his delivery and his ridiculous expression, not to mention what looked like a rented Roman soldier costume:

The Centurion: Truly, this man was the son of God.

My question: Who the hell was "Truly?"

Is "Corny" a good thing or a bad thing... this corny line made me laugh.

In the movie Rounders, Worm (a poker hustler) comments to the main character as he realizes his girlfriend has just left him.

"In the poker game of life, women are the rake!"

Renee Zelwegger to Tom Cruise: "You had me at hello." Barf. I only remember this line because someone repeated it to me in a conversation after I saw the movie. I forget the name of the movie.

@Lightwizard,
Must have been the inspiration to one of the cinema's greatest one liners...

Can you figure it out which one of the iconic lines I'm referring to?


Aw thanks! Look what you made me do! Now I feel compelled to watch Airplane[/b] now! Why me?! Wink

@ebrown p,
Rolling Eyes

Sounds like the character was supposed to be earnest. If so then that's unintentionally funny. Laughing

You mean Truly is a distant ancestor to Shirley? Surely, you can't mean that!

@Lightwizard,
I didn't expect you to come up with a better one than this but you did.

The terminator, a ruthless killing machine, to the tearful young John Conner (who throughout the pic had been a navy seal and a green beret rolled into one)
I'm sorry John I have to go away now

@lovejoy,
That should be from Terminator II when Ahnold was the "Good Terminator," at the end of the film:

Yes, throw it in. And the chip.

No, there is one chip and it must be destroyed also.

Here, I cannot self-terminate, you must lower me into the steel.

I’m sorry John, sorry.

I have to go away.

I must go away John. Sorry, it has to end here.

I know now why you cry but it’s something I can never do.

Goodbye.

(Glug, glug, glug, gablot).

Cecile B. Demile allowed the script to give Anne Baxter some of the worst lines in his Biblical Sunday School Epic, "The Ten Commandments" (which easily could have been titles "The Ten Remandments" and sent back to an even lesser director):

"Oh Moses, Moses, you stubborn, splendid, adorable fool!" -- Throne Princess Nefertiri (Anne Baxter) to Moses (Charlton Heston) Adorable? Adorable?!!!

Not just the smell of corn permeates the room if but a pungent odor of spoiled ham comes to mind if I watch this one just for laughs (it's played in a sub-par print on mostly network TV and in the old pan-and-scan -- no one believes it's worth restoring?) To think this was the Anne Baxter who played evil to the hilt in "All About Eve," likely the film with the best quotes from the script of any existing. In TTC, she plays evil as a comedic stereotypical Egyptian vamp.
