The Most Quotable Movies of All Time

List Criteria: Quantity, not so much quality!

The most quotable movies of all time certainly rank among the best movies ever, but there's more than just cinematic excellence to take into account when picking the movies with the best quotes ever. The best quotable movies have one-liners that can be dropped in a variety of situations as well as thoughtful sentiments that relate to life in general. But one-liners, man, they sure do make a movie quote worthy.

"We're not worthy!"
"Stupid is as stupid does."
"I love lamp."
"I've got a beverage here!"

Many of these memorable movie quotes can be dropped into casual conversation and be immediately recognizable as coming from a popular film. Others like "they can't all be winners, kid" (it's on the greatest movie quotes list if you're stuck) are tougher to figure out, but come from movies as quotable as favorites like Forrest Gump and Pulp Fiction.

What movies have the best quotes? What are the top quotable films? Where do the greatest film quotes come from? There are many films with a single movie quote that belongs among the most recognizable among pop culture while others are quotable throughout the movie's entire running time. This list of the most quotable movies has a mix of both, all available for you to vote on as the most quotable film ever. If your favorite movie with the greatest quotes is missing, make sure to add it to the greatest quotable movies list.
