Making a truly funny comedy movie is one difficult task. Achieving success with one is almost impossible. So it is incredibly impressive when a funny movie manages to not only make us laugh, but have us leaving the theaters quoting it for years and years.
When you watch Anchorman online, it becomes immediately clear that the Will Ferrell movie is a movie quote machine.
Then, of course after you watch Borat online, we’re sure you’ll be quoting Sacha Baron Cohen all day too!
Movie Fanatic presents the 17 most quotable comedies! These movies not only get you to laugh, but have stood the test of time by having the dialogue from these movies become the greatest movie quotes of all-time. In fact, they are so powerful that they have permeated our actual cultural discourse as well!
The Legend of Ron Burgundy has proved itself to be one of the most quotable movies of all time. The permeation of Anchorman quotes over the last decade is why we have Anchorman 2.
3. Dumb and Dumber
How powerful are those Dumb and Dumber quotes? The fact that decades later we're getting a sequel speaks volumes.
With Michael Cera, Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen dishing the lines, comedic quotes come a mile a minute in Superbad. Emma Stone even gets in a few!
5. The Big Lebowski
People have not stopped quoting The Dude or Walter Sobchak since the movie came out in 1998. The Coen brothers have rarely been so funny... or quotable!
6. Office Space
Office Space, one can tell, came from the mind of Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge. How else could it be so funny and pointed at the same time?
7. The Princess Bride
Rob Reiner scored in what seemed like the simplest of save-the-princess tales. Oh, Buttercup, it was so much more!
8. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
"The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands." And so our journey with Ferris on his glorious day of quotables begins!
Ghostbusters scored by giving us hilarious quotes, and also a sci-fi spectacle in the process. Then again, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd are no stranger to comedic movie quotes!
10. Animal House
John Belushi is so missed. If you watch only one of his movies, Animal House is it, and you will not stop quoting him... and everyone else for that matter. Thank you, sir, may I have another?
Chevy Chase was one of the best at producing comedy quotes. Proof of that is all over Caddyshack!
Where to start with Airplane? It may be one of those movies that is nothing but great comedy quotes, from beginning to end.
13. Napoleon Dynamite
Who would have thought that a little movie called Napoleon Dynamite would go on to achieve such cult fave status? With quotes such as "Gimme Your Tots" going viral, you couldn't lose.
14. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Monty Python is no stranger to producing memorable comedy quotes. When it comes to best movie quotes per minute, The Holy Grail is our Python champ!
15. Step Brothers
Step Brothers showed us the surprising comedic chemistry between Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. It was their second pairing, and hopefully not the last!
16. Groundhog Day
When it came to comedy quotes, Groundhog Day may have had Bill Murray repeating the same day over and over, but it was wildly original comedic dialogue. Groundhog Day, I Got You Babe!
