Favourite Movie Quotes


Didn’t you just know that Breakfast at Tiffany’s would be one of my favourite movies?  Of course you did.  I la la love Miss Golightly and her charming turn of phrase. Yes, I can swear like a trouper.  I can even swear like a trooper.  But sometimes, it is more effective to keep it nice and “Oh, golly gee damn!” does the trick.  Try it one day.


Favourite Movie Quotes


Pillow Talk is a classic 1959 rom com starring Doris Day and Rock Hudson, and one of my absolute all time favourite movies.  Sadly, I have used this quote from time to very occasional time.  Believe it or not, it does make you feel better.  Temporarily.


Favourite Movie Quotes


A fairy tale written and illustrated by Spike Milligan for his own kids and printed in 1973.  Although there is in fact a movie, released in 2000 and narrated by Spike Milligan, I know and love this quote from the musical production which I used to listen to with my brothers and parents, snuggled up in their bed on Sunday mornings.  I know right.  Just how old am I?


Favourite Movie Quotes


As far as I’m concerned, Australia is perfectly welcome to Russell Crowe.  Whilst remaining supremely talented in the acting field, he just comes across as a complete tool.  However, I absolutely love Gladiator.  Am a bit of a Roman history buff, and Maximus Decimus Meridius is played to perfection by Russell Crowe.  Crowded House is ours though, yeah?


Favourite Movie Quotes


Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a 1958 movie, based on the Pulitzer-prize winning play by Tennessee  Williams, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman as a combatant husband and wife.  Although Tennessee Williams was unhappy with the significant downplaying of the play’s homosexual themes, La Liz turns in a mesmerising performance, much of it in a gorgeous negligee.

    I’m going to use “Oh, golly gee damn” because well, if I could just have an inkling of Audrey Hepburn’s timeless style…I’d be so happy! xReplyCancel

    I LOVE the ‘my hair hurts’ quote. One of my favourites is pretty embarrassing… from ‘Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead’ (I know – movie was schlock but the quote remains emblazoned in my brain) – ‘I’m right on top of that Rose!’ Sadly I’ve been known to use it regularly and confuse people often. Must. Stop.ReplyCancel

    I know a lot of Star Wars quotes! Bit tragic I realise! Have never heard of Bad Jelly The Witch so a little intrigued with that one!ReplyCancel

    I just knew the “stinky poo” quote was going to be Spike. God rest his soul.ReplyCancel

    I’m embarrassed to say that the only movie on your list of quotes that you’ve shared that I’ve seen is Gladiator! How bad is that??? Hmmm…fave movie quote? None that I can think of sadly.ReplyCancel

    I adore Breakfast at Tiffany’s! Love Holly’s description of the “mean reds”.
    As for favourite movie quotes, I’d have to have a bit of a think about that. The one that immediately springs to mind though is “ugh, as IF!” from the classic 90s flick, Clueless.ReplyCancel

      Clueless is a top movie! Based on one of my favourite books, Jane Austen’s Emma. I would adore the rotating wardrobe!ReplyCancel
