Most Overused Line In Cinema

One of my goals for this weekend was to post a couple videos. I put the first one up yesterday, and if you're a Pixar fan, you'll want to check it out.

The second video isn't family friendly, but I thought it was pretty funny. My personal favorite in here is Steph from Pretty in Pink. Which clip do you think is the best use of this vaunted line?

  1. You are right. That has to be the most over used line of all time in the movies. I think Bruce Willis has that line in most of his movies. I'm surprised Adrien didn't say that to Rocky in the famous scene after the fight.

  2. It just goes to show how much we human beings ponder shit, since we seem to know so much about what it looks like. Hmm.

  3. Ahhhh ... I must agree withyou! Young, skinny James Spader being a pompous ass in Pretty inPink ... soooo good .... he nails that line - overused though it is ... Ron Livingstone in Swingers is a personal fave, as well ...

    Love the clips compilation -

  4. Maybe it is supposed to mean - "I care about you" :)?

  5. Tom: I wonder if Bruce realizes this line seems to appear in all of his movies?

    dbs: well played

    PM: You are so money!

    Olga: I agree, in certain situations it is a sign of concern.

  6. Very funny. I never really thought about it before. Interesting that in real life, people tend to internalize a lot more and say "I feel like sh!t" instead.

  7. Spader did nail that line, but I think McCarthy nailed it when he said.."she thinks your shit. And deep down you know she's right."

    I thought this was hilarious...but then I was the one who thought the book "Shit My Father Says" was one of the best books this year. Well, at least I'm consistent.

    I appreciated the people who embellished a little...not just, "You look like shit", but "You look like hammered shit." Or even better, "You look like stir-fried shit." And did anyone else notice that in one scene Morgan Freeman is delivering the line and in another one he's on the receiving end of it?
