I'm surprised enough people saw "The Postman" to get it up to number ten on the list. My personal favorite part is when they have to point out that Tom Petty is indeed Tom Petty by having Costner say "I know you, you were famous."

The most disappointing to me at the time wasn't a line, but was the ending of "Dead Again," starring the then married Kenneth Branaugh and Emma Thompson. It was a gripping, atmospheric story that had everyone at the edge of their seats, until the villian at the end refused to die, . . . like. . . eight different times. By the 5th or 6th arousal from the dead, the audience that had been spellbound was laughing and throwing stuff at the screen.

Is "Four Weddings And A Funeral" and "Ghost" a tie for 3rd?

Actually, the "Ghost" reference I don't think applies. They said "Ditto" to each other several times in the movie.

Eh, I don't have that good a memory. I just know that while watching a movie (take your pick, Hollywood does something stupid in almost every movie they produce), I always see at least one thing that is stupid or cheesy. Your example of the never-dying bad guy is perfect. That actually happens in a lot of movies.

Or how about the movie Red Planet (I think that's the one I'm recalling)? They land on Mars and find that their habitat has been destroyed. Eventually, they are expecting to run out of oxygen. So, one of them takes off his helmet. Strangely, there is oxygen and he can breathe. Okay, this part I don't have a problem with as it's a major part of the plot. The part I find to be stupid is that they would instantly be frozen in Mars temperatures and winds.

I guess this would be typical Hollywood stupidity. Not sure if it would be classified as cheese. Albeit, Mars temps can be in the teens F. But they were walking around as if it were Spring time. :shake:

The other Top Gun cheese was where she tells him that she just can't tell him how brilliant his flying is, because people will see that she is falling for him, blah blah blah...

...then the whole "flying for his dad" bit...

...now that I think about it, that whole damn movie was a big stinky block of moldy cheese...

Red planet, that movie was an insult to my intelligence as soon as he took off his helmet. I thought. you can't expect us to believe that?

Another movie that went off the deep end several times is Armageddon.
Bruce Willis and company sent up to drill holes in an asteriod to blow it up, right.
I can't believe these actors reading these scripts would actually sign on to do these movies. In Armageddon, the drama never existed. One of the most important aspects of a film, especially a science fiction, is the suspension of disbelief. Once you get that "Oh, come on" feeling, I disengage myself from the movie a bit, and the fun drops. I was disappointed by this movie, and not just because of the scientific ludicrousness.

If you cannot turn off your higher brain functions, then you should not watch “Independence Day” or “Armageddon” or “Red Planet” or “The Day After Tomorrow” or “The Core” and the like. All of these are absurd from a science viewpoint, but are decent popcorn flicks once you ignore the pseudo science explanations. Just drop your I.Q. by half, crank up the surround sound and let the mayhem begin.

The only time I could not get past the technofoolery was “Air Force One.” I worked on the Air Force One planes and just could not swallow the bulletproof skins, ramp and escape pod.

The Postman was filmed not far from where I live. My wife and I were out for a drive and drove in to the town, not realizing they were making a movie.

As we came down the road to Metaline, there was a wall around the town made of logs sharpened on one end. We are like "WTF?". There are a lot of survivalist types in this neck of the woods but that was extreme. :hmmm:

Didn't see anyone famous, since they were filming out of town that day.

At the end of Titanic when the chick says her last name is the guy who got turned into a popsicle's last name, that is just about the cheesiest line I have ever seen. If I had rolled my eyes any more severely they would have detatched and fallen out of my skull.

I wasn't a big fan of Jerry Maguire, but #9 wasn't bad.

Now, #7. I don't know if Bill Pullman is just a horrific actor, or if he just had the part that was written by the high school intern, but he alone ruined the movie Independence Day. Every line he spouted out in the movie was just an embarrassment to thespianism.

If we really want cheesy, we can't forget Starship Troopers, the worst abomination of a movie ever, albeit with great special effects. Among the cheesiest moments was when Doogie Howser had a captured bug in a big cage, and his "scientific experimenting" was limited to shooting it about a thousand times. How many actors died to capture that thing so you could interrogate it and learn about its culture and thinking and planning and biology, and you just fill it full of holes as your experiment? What were the writers thinking?

And I particularly liked the part about the spaceship getting hit by the bug-fired asteroid. I've described it before, so I won't do it again, but everything about that scene was a car wreck. Everything.

Those are all good, but there is a scene from Mission Impossible II that I can't stomache seeing.

Tom Cruise and the main girl are talking about Tom going to confront the bad guy. She's all pissed off that he didn't tell her right away and he is trying to calm her down. The conversation is as follows, with the cheesy line being Tom's final line:

Tom: "Would it make you feel better to know that I didn't want to do this?"

Girl: "Yes, yes it would."

Tom: (in an angry tone) "THEN FEEL BETTER!"

I really hate that scene.

I really liked the first 25 minutes of Independence Day but from the second the stripper, her kid and the dog escape the flames by jumping into a room in the tunnel (as the flames fly by outside the open door), the movie crashes with a thud and never gets up. From the stupid subplot with the prez' wife to the heros interfacing into an alien computer with a Mac, it completely spirals out of control.

I can usually turn my brain off to enjoy a movie, but if something really stupid happens that intrudes into my suspended belief (the jumping bus in Speed, for example), the movie is ruined after that.

I think it's Bill Pullman. Some friends talked me into seeing "Mr. Wrong" and ever since then, I can't get through one line of his dialogue without getting the picture in my head of the scene in "Mr. Wrong" where he's reciting a poem or something to her.

He just does this squinty-eyes, William-Shatner-esque, look-at-me-I'm-the-dashing-hero thing whenever he delivers his lines. It served him well in the parody "Spaceballs", but I just can't take any of his roles seriously anymore.

I will say that Hopkins had a great line in the film. I don't remember exactly how it goes because it has been so long, but somehting to the affect of, "Training? To go to bed with a man and lie to him? You're a woman, you have all the training you need."

I didnt go thru all the posts so far but when I first heard this list on the radio this morning the ONE line I thought of immediately was from a show I never saw, it "starred" Vanilla Ice back when he was semi-famous. There was a clip of it shown on VH-1 awhile back on I love the 80's...anyways, the line is "why get with a ZERO when you can get with a HERO?" He should have been shot for even attempting to make ANY movie and the directors who thought that it was a good idea to have HIM star in the movie should never be allowed to make another movie again...ever.:cuss:

Compelling argument.


Was that the movie where he had his tongue out at the table trying to eat some fruit, and Liam Neeson (or whomever) reached out and grabbed it? I thought it displayed an incredible lack of interspecies cultural sensitivity on Neeson's (or whomever's) part to do that. Maybe it was rude for humans, but it could have been incredibly polite and proper on JarJar Binks' world.

Haha. You just corrected someone on a Cool As Ice quote.

I can't believe that less than 25 posts in 3 people here have seen the vanilla Ice movie.

It's a Wonderful Life is supposed to be cheesy. It was made in a time when acting meant not being realistic, but you know, acting...

...yes. I liked that movie alot. Also any old Humphery Bogart flick. Totally overdone acting was the order of the day. I'd love to see it come back, but I guess we are all too into reality these days...

I think #1 has to be from Fast and Furious

Vin Diesel:

"I live my life a quarter mile at a time"

that to me, is the worst line in the history of movie making

I love cheesy movies and low budget flicks (stuff you'd see on MST getting mocked) but Teenage Caveman was the worst 2 hours of my life...

It was like a kid with a camera and 3 lbs of coke just got his rich friends together and starting shooting...

Brando's method acting pretty much revolutionized it all. Compare actors before and after. Pretty different.

My theory is that most or all of the actors in old movies were really stage actors. They were always using their big stage voices and exaggerated stage moves, and "movie acting" hadn't evolved yet.
