The other night at the Brain mansion I flopped down in front of the TV (unusual) with a bottle of wine (less so) and discovered that Top Gun was playing….and watched the whole damn thing for the umpteenth time. And I mentioned on Twitter that it might be the most quoted movie of all time. Sadly it turned out many other people were also watching it and replied with their candidate top quoted movies. Here’s the list from the saddos the other night. What’s your bet for most quoted movie ever?
* Amelia Torode – Wall Street
* Riddler Music – This is Spinal Tap and Withnail and I
* Richard Sambrook – The Godfather
* Mike Ashworth – Anchorman
* Wolfgang Luenenberger – When Harry Met Sally
* Peter Hay – Dirty Dancing
* Antoine Soussaline – Zoolander
Here’s the Wikipedia take, Cinematicals, and The Register (which claims “I’ll be back” is the most quoted line), proving that my question was not the most original. Here’s some gratuitous Top Gun in the form of the original trailer for a Friday afternoon.
