The BBC reports that Warburtons graciously asked 2,000 filmgoers what the cheesiest movie lines were, and their answers are this:
1. "I'm the king of the world!" - Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) in Titanic
2. "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" - Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) in Dirty Dancing
3. "Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed." - Carrie (Andie MacDowell) while standing in a downpour in Four Weddings in a Funeral
4. "Ditto" - Sam (Patrick Swayze) after Molly (Demi Moore) says "I love you" in Ghost
5. "You can be my wingman any time." - Iceman (Val Kilmer) to Maverick (Tom Cruise) in Top Gun
6. "I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her." - Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) in Notting Hill
7. "Today we celebrate our Independence Day." - President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) in Independence Day
8. "They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!" - William Wallace (Mel Gibson) in Braveheart
9. "You had me at hello." - Dorothy (Renee Zellweger) in Jerry Maguire
10. "No, I'm a postman." - The Postman (Kevin Costner) to a blind woman who says, "You're a godsend, a saviour," in The Postman
The list certainly has a bunch of no-brainers; Gothamist loves that two of the dopiest lines ever made it ("Is it still raining?..." and "I'm just a girl..."). However, we're curious about the methodology of the survey - it seems like the filmgoers surveyed were given a list of recent cheesy movie quotes...or were films before 1986 not considered cheesy? Londonist, can you tell us more?
What do you think is the cheesiest movie line? We happen to like "Nobody puts Baby in the corner," if only because Dirty Dancing also stars Jerry Orbach and Kelly Bishop (now so good on The Gilmore Girls).
