I'm going to cheat and say Harry Potter.

I mean when you kids say something and giggle I assume it's Harry Potter or Pokemon.

Not a movie, but The Simpsons.

Seriously, stop quoting it, people.

I know you've got an encyclopedic knowledge of all the best quotes from all the series, but seriously.

Stop.

It's probably not overquoted in general, but with my friends and I, it's Eurotrip.

Fight Club
Austin Powers (especially "Get in my belly." Just... gargle with drain cleaner)
Napolean Dynamite (Honestly, it wasn't THAT funny when John Heder said it. It certainly isn't when you do)
Fight Club (Sorry? What was that first rule of fight club again? I can't quite seem to get it straight.)

And although they aren't movies, a lot of Saturday Night Live skits don't need to be repeated once again. The exception to this is Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy. I can listen to absolutely anyone on earth recite those and giggle.

Among my friends This Is Spinal Tap is a little played out... "This one goes to 11" "Of course it's sexist! What's wrong with being sexist?" and the ever-handy "I have an armadillo down my trousers".

I saw Boondock Saints was mentioned as over-quoted, and how true that is. I'm sitting in class right now, listening (unfortunately) to a couple people quoting that movie.

I haven't seen Life of Brian yet, but my friend Mel was talking about it last night, said I might enjoy it. (We just like the 'Every Sperm is Sacred' song from Meaning of Life, haha).

My favorite part from a PPP video is from the the new one, Wizard Angst, "My parents are dead, my life sucks, and I'm always surrounded by fucking goblins and shit all of the time. I mean what the fuck!" Mwahaha... I need to go watch that now. Excuse me.

Movies my friends and I are guilty of over-quoting:

Dude, Where's My Car? (hehe, I still say shibby)

The 40 Year Old Virgin. (The Yknow Why You're Gay? scene, especially)

Just Friends seems to get quoted a lot too.

And now for another "it's not a movie... but..."

for my friends, it's Christopher Guest movies (mostly Waiting for Guffman), The Princess Bride (which ironically has Christopher Guest in it), Monty Python movies, Boondock Saints, and Anchorman. It's ok, because I actually liked all but Anchorman a lot. Anchorman just bothers me, other than the fight scene.


quoting Borat is worse than quoting Napoleon Dynamite. srsly.

oh, and it's not a movie, but people quote The End of the World video all the time. and this one guy i know says, "OMG SHOES" all the time from that Shoes video.

Ghostbusters.

someone asks a stupid question equivalent to "hey, where do these stairs go?" "they go up" is the logical response.

"ray's gone bye-bye Egon; what have you got left?"
"I'm too terrified for rational thought"


"what are you supposed to be? some kind of a cosmonaut?"
"no, we're exterminators. someone saw a cockroach up on 12."

"Are you... Alice... menstrating right now?"

There is an asshole in my gender class who will not fucking stop quoting Borat.
He's all like "GREAT SUCCESS!" to fucking everything that happens.
It's so annoying!  I have not heard him talk without quoting Borat for this entire semester.
Plus, you can always see him in the halls, mackin on his gross Canadian girlfriend.  I cannot believe someone actually goes for this.
It's hard to explain, because I loved Borat, and sometimes quote it, but he is just SO BAD at doing it and SO IGNORANT (he thinks Borat is just making fun of Kazakhstan, not even knowing it was not even filmed there. . .) that it drives me nuts.
