You've been subjected to them: cheesy pick-up lines from guys or girls who have had one drink too many (when you've had three drinks too few). Bad pick-up lines are a hazard of dating, or - in the case of women - existing, but somewhere in between all the terrible attempts by would-be suitors to get your attention are a select few good pick-up lines. Sadly, the chances are pretty good that the best pick-up lines you'll hear were not devised by the person speaking them, but by the hand of a movie writer who may or may not be suave enough to deliver his or her own line in real life.

The best pick-up lines from movies come to us from the beginning of cinema all the way to present day. From Harry finally wooing Sally to the sounds of war as an aphrodisiac in Casablanca, there are myriad great pick-up lines in the history of cinema, and these are some of the best.

What are the funniest pick-up lines in movie history? What are the most successful pick-up lines from film? Scan through these movie clips of the top pick-up lines from movies and decide for yourself which movie pick-up lines are the best.
