“Keep Your Friends Close But Your Enemies Closer.”

I’m not a hard core movie buff, but there are a few movies I’ve rewatched, and rank as my favorites because of the storylines but mostly because the dialogue was so memorable.

Dialogue is my favorite vehicle for movies, because movies with sharp, witty dialogue tend to be character-driven and that’s what I enjoy most.

Here are as few of my favorite movies and dialogue quotes:


This film is widely regarded as one of the greatest movies of all time, and I agree. The writing, cast, character arcs, plot and especially the dialogue make for a compelling story.

“My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.”

 “My father assured him that either his brains or his signature would be on the contract.”


This movie has sharp writing, witty dialogue and it’s charming and funny.

“I know I-tey food when I hear it! It’s all them “eenie” foods… zucchini… and linguine… and fettuccine. I want some American food, dammit! I want French fries!”


This movie is a masterpiece with its twists and unexpected turns.

Doyle Lonnegan: “Your boss is quite a card player, how does he do it?”
Johnny Hooker: “He cheats.”


This is my all time favorite movie that I can rewatch many times over. It has great dialogue, smart, witty, funny with charming characters and a relatable storyline.

“I Came Here Tonight Because When You Realize You Want To Spend The Rest Of Your Life With Somebody, You Want The Rest Of Your Life To Start As Soon As Possible.”


This movie mixes elements of farce, comedy, and serious, relevant social issues about self-confidence and remaining true to oneself.

“You know what? Fuck beauty contests. Life is one fucking beauty contest after another. School, then college, then work… Fuck that. And fuck the Air Force Academy. If I want to fly, I’ll find a way to fly. You do what you love, and fuck the rest.”


I’ve rewatched this movie many times, and each time, I’m more enamored by these women, their stories, their southern charm, and the emotional aspects of their relationships and lives.

“I’m not crazy. . . I’ve just been in a very bad mood for 40 years.”


A movie that is cross-generational with a fun, adventurous story filled with profound messages, and delivered with stellar animation, adorable cast, and strong dialogue.

“We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.”

What are your favorites?
