35 Quotable Quotes from the Best Films Ever


Movies are great when watched inside the movie theaters with families and friends. They can make you laugh, cry, sad, and angry all at the same time. They can make you fall in love with the main character and hate the villain while secretly wishing it was you whom the leading man chooses in the end.

The world of movies is a magical place, not just because of the characters or actors that play them, but most importantly, by the story that writers, producers and directors have carefully deliberated together, creating the beautiful lines in the film.

When lines are delivered well, that is full of emotions, spot on and with feelings, these are remembered and instilled in the memories of the moviegoers, creating a quotable quote memory bank in the brain. The moviegoers will sometimes, instinctively or intentionally, deliver the movie quote when the situation calls for it.

In honor of all the movie lines we wish we had said in real life, here is a list of the quotable quotes from the best movies ever made:
