Day 16: A Film You Quote From All The Time

For a film to be quotable, it has to fit my ridiculous personality.  I have my share of one liners I like to use, but for a film as a whole, right now there’s one I can’t help but use all the time:

Grandma’s Boy

Grandma’s Boy for the win.  It has quotes for every situation: gaming, partying, chilling, and just all around stupidity.  This film will always hold a special place in my heart, being one of the few films I bought spontaneously without watching that turned out to be a sure-fire hit.  I credit this as the only successful film to come out of Happy Madison Productions, as Allen Covert and Nick Swardson enter the comedic spotlight instead of being stuck behind Adam Sandler’s presence.  But as far as quotability goes, the lines are simply comical enough to be winners all the way.  Whether it be about lions, karate monkeys, video games, or crazy grandparents; Grandma’s Boy has a line for it.  It’s so inappropriately rude with its sexual jokes and situations, but they also make up the funniest portions of the film.  The scene where Alex sleeps over his friend Jeff’s house is epically hilarious, and also hilarious enough to quote whenever I’m around my friends. Hmmm, I might need to run through this one again just because I’m talking about it.  It’s that funny.

Dante: “Whoa, I don’t know, man. I got a business to run. This is like my office as well as my home. Plus, the lion comes in a couple days.”
Alex: “You’re getting a lion?”
Dante: “Yeah.”
Alex: “Why?”
Dante: “To protect my shit.”
Alex: “Never heard of a dog?”
Dante: “Dude, you can get past a dog. Nobody fucks with a lion.”

So what movie have you ruined for your friends by quoting non-stop?
