10 Greatest Comeback Lines in Film

If you have ever seen the American Film Institute's 100 Years....100 Quotes, you will know that many times these quotes eventually enter our everyday vernacular. Think of how many times you have probably thought "show me the money" while in Las Vegas.

It's pretty interesting how much movies can define what we say and, in this case, how we insult each other.

"Do you mind if I name my first child after you? "Dipshit Knight" has a nice ring to it." - Chris Knight (Val Kilmer) in Real Genius. If you haven't seen Real Genius, then you need to add this to your Netflix account. It's a film about a group of students at the ficticious Pacific Tech in California who, unbeknownst to them, build a weapon in the form of a laser.

"I've seen better tennis playing in a tampon commercial." - Helen's (Rose Byrne) stepson in Bridesmaids. The scene in Bridesmaids where the women play tennis and strategically aim the ball at each other is a painful, wonderful moment.

Upcoming Events

"Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?" - Bender (Judd Nelson) in The Breakfast Club. If you have ever wanted to say this to some authority figure you hated because he hated you when you were young, raise your hand. I know I wanted to say this to my high school algebra teacher.

"Bite my ass, Krispy Kreme!" - Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts) in Erin Brockovich.

Julia Roberts won a Best Actress Oscar in 2001 for her role in the film dealing with one of the biggest and costliest civil suits in the United States.
