5 Very Quotable Comedies
5. Billy Madison
Run time: 1h 29m
Rotten Tomatoes: 40%
Audience Score: 79%
Although this movie has a low rotten tomato score of only 40%, this didn't stop anyone from loving it. This comedy is about an adult man, played by Adam Sandler, that has to restart school in order to run his father's company.
This movie is full of hilarious quotes such as:
"Sometimes I feel like an idiot. But I am an idiot, so it kinda works out."—Billy Madison
"Have some more Sloppy Joes. I made 'em extra sloppy for yous. I know how yous kids like 'em sloppy."—Lunch Lady
After watching this movie, you will probably think about this quote when you have Sloppy Joes again. You also might catch yourself with his school song stuck in your head he sings waiting for the bus.
4. Mrs. Doubtfire

Rotten tomatoes: 71%
Audience Score: 77%
Daniel Hillard, played by the legendary Robin Williams, is a voice actor and that lives in San Francisco. His wife, played by Sally Field, wants a divorce because her husband is not suitable for her or their children. Now trying to get through his life, he notices that his ex-wife needs a nanny. In order to spend more time with his children, he dresses as a woman named Euphegenia Doubtfire to secretly be a nanny for his children.
This movie is hilarious. It has a hilarious idea, it stars Robin Williams, and of course, has a very quotable script.
"My first day as a woman, and I'm getting hot flashes." -Daniel Hillard
"I'm a hip old granny who can hip-hop, be-bop, dance til you drop and yo-yo make a wicked cup of cocoa." -Mrs. Doubtfire

You see that guy in the picture? That's Milton, not the main character, but he sure seems like it because he might be the only character you want to see more of. He and his supporting actor, the Swingline stapler, own some of the greatest quotes.
This movie is about a computer programmer named Peter, played by Ron Livingston, that hates his job. He sees a professional about his problem and gets hypnotized to be very relaxed. He decides to not go to work and moves up in his company somehow.
Look out for these quotes in the movie that you might start saying at your job:
"Why does it say paper jam when there is no paper jam?" -Samir
"I'm gonna...burn the building down." -Milton
"Sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays." -Receptionist

This has got to be one the funniest movies ever. It follows friends Harry and Lloyd. Played by Jeff Daniels and Jim Carry. Lloyd is a limo driver that takes a woman to the airport to go to Aspen...California (you'll get it if you watch the movie). The woman leaves a bag after going on the plane and Lloyd thinks it's a good idea to go on a road trip all the way to Aspen from Rhode Island to give it back. Their journey is hilarious and has an endless amount of quotes such as:
"Nice hooters you got there...the owls." -Harry

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Run time: 1h 31m
Rotten Tomatoes: 97%
Audience Score: 95%
Whether you laugh at the movie or not, this British movie is known for its quotable script. Trust me when I say, it's way better when you watch it with someone else. Especially someone who can quote it. King Arthur played by Graham Chapman, goes around the land of England with his servant. No one believes that he pulled Excalibur, so he roams the land using humor instead. The whole script is a quote.
"What is your name, what is your quest,
what is your favorite color?" -Bridge keeper
"Then lobbyist thou thy holy hand grenade of Antioch
towards thy foe." -Brother Maynard
"This is suppose to be a happy occasion. Let's not bicker and argue about who killed who." -The landowner
