Writing a screenplay is a tough enough task. Getting that work turned into a movie is even harder.
Now, creating a film from a writing point of view that produces movie quotes that fans repeat over and over for decades is a whole new level of awesome.
We present 13 of the most prolific movie quote makers that have graced us with their talents.
Click through and see which 13 writers and producers have us quoting their movies' lines, years after they left the big screen.
Quentin Tarantino had to be on our list, no? His Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained have produced some of the most memorable lines, like ever.
We miss Harold Ramis immensely. His passing was a true loss. The man is responsible for those fantastic lines from Stripes, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Meatballs, Caddyshack and Back to School. Talk about leaving a legacy!
Judd Apatow may be the king of the movie quotes. From Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin to his work as producer of Bridesmaids, Get Him to the Greek, Step Brothers, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Walk Hard, Superbad and Pineapple Express -- this man must live to make us quote his movies!
Todd Phillips knows how to push the envelope and give great movie quotes. Check out his work on the three The Hangover movies and that becomes immediately clear. And who could forget “We’re streaking” and other fantastic lines from Old School?
The Coen Brothers
The Coen brothers produce quotable movies like they’re going out of style. And the genre may change, but the resonance of their lines remains. Sure, we love the comedic quotes of The Big Lebowski, Raising Arizona, Barton Fink, or O Brother, Where Art Thou? But, Fargo, No Country for Old Men and True Grit deliver the unforgettable dramatic quotes too.
His Anchorman and Anchorman 2 quotes are downright legendary. And don’t get us started on the underrated but still super quote-worthy The Other Guys. Adam McKay knows what makes us laugh… And did we mention that he wrote Step Brothers and Talladega Nights? Yeah, that.
