Bright movie quotes provide the dialogue for the film about a human cop paired with an orc who need to keep a magic wand out of the wrong hands. The Netflix movie was written by Max Landis and directed by David Ayer. Bright was released on streaming video in the United States on December 22, 2017.

In Bright, the setting is a world where mythical creatures live alongside humans. To calm some of the racial divide, the Los Angeles Police Department hires an orc as an officer. This orc, Nick Jacoby (Joel Edgerton) is partnered with human cop Daryl Ward (Will Smith). The two are far from instant BFFs, but play nice with one another as the world watches how the experiment plays out.

So one day when Daryl and Nick are on a call, they discover a boatload of dead bodies and a young elf (Lucy Fry) with a magic wand that can make almost anything happen. Knowing that something of this power is wanted by good guys and bad guys alike (including Edgar Ramirez and Noomi Rapace), Daryl and Nick are faced with an epic battle between species to take possession of the wand. 

Bright was just one of several late 2017 films that got a lot of buzz just like others did including Ferdinand, Coco, Call Me By Your Name and I, Tonya.

    The Diversity Hire

    Daryl Ward: Everybody's just trying to get along and have a good life. All of the races are different. Just cause they're different doesn't mean anybody is better or worse than anybody.

    Daryl Ward: I got a dude in my car. I didn't ask for it but the whole world is watching. 

    In speaking to his daughter and coworker in these Bright movie quotes, Daryl explains that there are lots of races all of which just want to get along. So when the Los Angeles Police Departments hires an orc as an officer, Daryl is chosen to be said orc's partner.

    A Fairy in the Bird Feeder Again

    Sherri Ward: Why is there a fairy in the bird feeder again? 
    OG Mike: Good afternoon, officer
    Daryl Ward: Fairy lives don't matter today. 
    OG Mike: Now that's it right there. Now take the little homey down LAPD style like you do.
    Daryl Ward: Oh and you just keep doing all your gangster stuff. I'm just trying to sell my house. Don't worry about that.

    While living in Los Angeles just might involve gangsters next door, at least in this world, it doesn't involve fairies in bird feeders. In the world in which this movie lives, however, that seems like something that happens quite often.
