If you've seen the hit film, we want you to vote on the best Hustlers quotes. The movie, which is loosely based on a true story, has earned Jennifer Lopez some of the best reviews of her career. She plays Ramona Vega, a stripper at an upscale New York City club. She mentors a newer dancer, Destiny (Constance Wu), in the art of getting the clientele -- which consists primarily of wealthy Wall Street types -- to spend as much money as possible. After the stock market crash of 2008 takes their industry down with it, Ramona comes up with a plan to seriously bilk the guys whose corruption took such a massive toll on the country.

Writer/director Lorene Scafaria captures the tension in this scenario but also infuses the movie with a streak of humor. There are funny lines and one-liners scattered throughout. They're delivered by a stellar cast that also includes Kiki Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, Frank Whaley, Mercedes Ruehl, Cardi B, and Lizzo. A certain A-list singer even makes a cameo appearance in one memorable scene. 

Vote up the most memorable Hustlers quotes from the list below, whether serious or comedic, and regardless of which character says them.
