‘Titanic’ tops list of cheesiest movie lines

In a poll of 2,000 U.K. moviegoers, British baker Warburtons asked for the most cheesy moments in film. The results are some of Hollywood’s most quoted and annoying movie lines in recent history.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s “I’m the king of the world” line from super-smash hit Titanic was the top vote-getter. Followed by “Nobody puts Baby in the corner” as uttered by Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing.

Here are the top 10 cheesy moments:

  1. Titanic: Leonardo DiCaprio’s “I’m the king of the world!”
  2. Dirty Dancing: Patrick Swayze’s “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.”
  3. Four Weddings And A Funeral: Andie McDowell’s “Is it still raining? I hadn’t noticed.”
  4. Ghost: Demi Moore’s “Ditto,” to Patrick Swayze’s “I love you.”
  5. Top Gun: Val Kilmer to Tom Cruise: “You can be my wingman anytime.”
  6. Notting Hill: Julia Roberts’ “I’m just a girl… standing in front of a boy… asking him to love her.”
  7. Independence Day: Bill Pullman’s “Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”
  8. Braveheart: Mel Gibson’s “They may take our lives, but they will not take our freedom!”
  9. Jerry Maguire: Renee Zellweger to Tom Cruise: “You had me at hello.”
  10. The Postman: A blind woman says to Kevin Costner: “You’re a godsend, a savior.” He replies: “No, I’m a postman.”

Warburtons created the list to honor their new line of cheese-flavored crumpets.

    I loved! “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” Party of one, I think. Everyone else thinks it’s cheesy.

    Heh. I was impressed with “You had me at hello,” but then I’m a huge Cameron Crowe fan.

    I hated most of these other lines. They completely distract me when I watch these films. Especially “Is it still raining? I hadn’t noticed.” Bleah.

    God, I hated that line, too. But I think that’s at least partially because Andie MacDowell has about as much acting ability as a La-Z-Boy.

    I really liked the Dirty Dancing line, also. I absolutely adored this movie in middle school, although I didn’t really understand what was going on. I also liked the Jerry Maguire line and the Braveheart line. The rest, well, I can understand them being on this list. 🙂

    I have to admit…I liked Indepenence Day, and I think Bill Pullman is pretty hot. But I did think that line was stupid. After all, the aliens wanted to exterminate us, note eslave us.

    AFI will soon be coming out with the 10 best movie lines ever. I’m looking forward to that.

    You can bet “this could be the start of a beautiful friendship” will be on it. 🙂

    You can count on SOMETHING from Casablanca. Either that, or “Play it again, Sam”; or “Of all the [gin joints?]…in all the world, why did you have to walk into mine?”; or the big “maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow” speech.

    Yes, from Casablanca. So many great lines in that movie it could easily dominate the list. 🙂
