Sunday Too Far Away:
a movie about Australian "big shed" shearers, the union, the strike, the life.
Back ground. The shearers cook (a man) wasnt doing a very good job and became the butt of ribald remarks.

from the front: Right youse blokes who called the cook a c**t?

from the back: who called the c**t a cook?
(cant find a clip for that)

Also:

Ya SCAB!

@dadpad,
Liz Taylor to Vivienne Leigh (I think it was) "There's only two things I can't stand about you, and that's your face".

@jeeprs,
That's hysterical. One explicit insult: "your face" and one deep cutting implicit insult (if I got it right). Did she call Vivienne Leigh's character a two face?

@tsarstepan,
In Witches of Eastwick, Cher insults Nicholson with everything she can think of... and then sleeps with him anyway.

@tsarstepan,
I can't recall exactly which film but I think it might have been one of the Tennesee Williams screen plays - maybe Cat on a Hot Tin Roof or something.

I'm sure the list is posted somewhere, but I like the challenge of figuring this out for myself (question marks after a title indicate uncertainty -- question marks in place of a title indicate complete cluelessness):

2. ?
3. ?
4. The Princess Bride
5. A Fish Called Wanda
6. Return of the Jedi ?
7. The Wizard of Oz
8. Casino

Not one of the better lists. Too much repetition. Although, to be fair, I suppose it is difficult to pick out the best insults in Full Metal Jacket and In the Loop.

@Ticomaya,
No, not a movie, Ticomaya, a spamming poster to this thread (& loads of other posts to other threads here today! Grrrr!) I was responding to.

I thought that was a quote from Streetcar Named Desire. The correct quote should have been...
Quote:
