Dialogue is usually one of the first things that each cinephile or moviegoer either praises or criticizes. Not every line needs to be meaningful; in fact, many characters simply say “Hello?”, “No,”… or joke or talk about what they’re doing. However, there’s a line that’s just so bad and it completely takes the spectator out of the film.
Well, I asked the BuzzFeed Community to share some of the most cringe-worthy movie lines they’ve ever heard, and the answers were unexpected. Some of these terrible lines appear frequently in many famous films. And some of them are directly delivered that you question if movie fans are ready to skip some pretty awful sentences just because the films were blockbusters.
So, here are 33 of the best (or worst, depending on their perspective). The following examples have been judged by 3 criteria: context, delivery, and humor. Warning that this post includes spoilers as well as harsh language, and adult content. So, if you’re ready, let’s get started!
