Name the Movie: 12 Memorable Lines

Are you a movie fan? Have you seen many of the classics? How are you at recalling what movies some famous lines are from? See how well you can do in naming the films in which these quotes were taken.

THE MOVIES

  1. “You had me at hello.”
  2. “It was beauty killed the beast.”
  3. “Houston, we have a problem.”
  4. “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.”
  5. “What we’ve got here, is a failure to communicate.”
  6. “Build it, and they will come.”
  7. “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”
  8. “Here’s lookin’ at you kid.”
  9. “Seize the day boys. Make your lives extraordinary.”
  10. “You can’t handle the truth.”
  11. “Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges.”
  12. “It’s in the hole!”

THE ANSWERS

  1. Jerry McGuire. This line was spoken to McGuire (Tom Cruise) by Renee Zellwegger in the film, that was also known for the line “Show me the money” said repeatedly by Cuba Gooding Jr.
  2. King Kong. This is the last line of the 1933 classic spoken after King Kong was shot from the top of the Empire State building and fell to his death.
  3. Apollo 13. You may have known this one, but did you know the actual quote spoken by astronaut Jack Swigert on the actual mission were “Okay, Houston, we’ve had a problem here.”?
  4. The Godfather Part II. Give yourself a pat on the back in you “Part II” included in your answer.
  5. Cool Hand Luke. This often quoted line when a problem arises is from the 1967 film starring Paul Newman.
  6. Field of Dreams. This was a fastball down the middle for baseball fans.
  7. Jaws. This is a great line when explaining to someone they’ve probably underestimated a problem. From the 1975 film.
  8. Casablanca. This was a no-brainer for classic film buffs and Humphrey Bogart fans.
  9. Dead Poets Society. Robin Williams spoke the line in the 1989 movie.
  10. “A Few Good Men”. From the dramatic courtroom scene between Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson.
  11. Treasure of the Sierra Madre”. Yes, the line was originally heard in the 1948 classic, but don’t feel bad if you said “Blazing Saddles” the 1974 movie from Mel Brooks which also featured the line.
  12. “Caddyshack”. A hapless groundskeeper played by Bill Murray shouted the phrase while pretending to play and announce his swing at “The Masters”.

If you got 11 or 12 right, give yourself an Oscar. You’ve earned a Golden Globe with 9 or 10 correct. If you scored  7 or 8, you got the part. A score of 6 or less means you didn’t get past the audition. .
