10 Underrated Quotes in Legendary Movies


Posted by on

We all know the famous lines – the “I’ll be back”s and the “We’re gonna need a bigger boat”s of the world get plenty of press. But in this list, we’re going to shine some light on underrated bits of dialogue from major flicks.

10. “Where’s the commode in this dungeon? I gotta take a squirt,” Reservoir Dogs

Quentin Tarantino is notorious for quotable movies, but this Steve Buscemi line from his first flick doesn’t get enough love.

9. “You’ve had your whole f***ing life to think things over. What good’s a few more minutes gonna do you now?” The Shining

We all know “Here’s Johnny,” but this Kubrick classic has some equally incredible dialogue, most notably this homicidal quip.

8. “Pardon my French, but Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you’d have a diamond,” Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

John Hughes was a master of crafting unforgettable dialogue, and while people remember other lines from Day Off, this one is a favorite.

7. “For us, there is no spring. Just the wind that smells fresh before the storm,” Conan The Barbarian

The bit about driving your enemies before you is the money shot of Conan, but this grim parable is equally good.

6. “You mark that frame an eight [and] you’re entering a world of pain,” The Big Lebowski

This Coen Brothers classic is chock-full of amazing quotes, but this bit from Walter Sobchak at the bowling alley is truly underrated.

5. “Story of my life. I always get the fuzzy end of the lollipop,” Some Like It Hot

Billy Wilder’s 1959 flick was rated the best comedy of all time by the American Film Institute, and this quote showed Marilyn Monroe’s underrated chops.

4. “A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets,” Titanic

Yes, there’s the “king of the world” bit and the “draw me like one of your French girls” bit, but this line from Rose is very underappreciated.

3. “Pick up that blood!” Caddyshack

Harold Ramis’s 1980 golf comedy classic is one of the most quotable movies of all time. This line from Lou Loomis doesn’t get enough love.

2. “Didn’t we just leave this party?” Star Wars

Han Solo has the lion’s share of good lines in the first Star Wars flick, but this particular quip, delivered as the crew is trying to escape the Death Star, is a particular favorite.

1. “I’m not going to waste my time arguing with a man who’s lining up to be a hot lunch,” Jaws

This quip from marine biologist Matt Hooper is one of many sick burns throughout Jaws, and Hooper does manage to survive.

Holiday Extra Special

Make The Holidays ’80s Again

Enjoy the holiday cheer Wednesday December 21 at 10P on IFC.

Whatever happened to the kind of crazy-yet-cozy holiday specials that blanketed the early winter airwaves of the 1980s? Unceremoniously killed by infectious ’90s jadedness? Slow fade out at the hands of early-onset millennial ennui? Whatever the reason, nixing the tradition was a huge mistake.

A huge mistake that we’re about to fix.

Announcing IFC’s Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special, starring Tony Hale. It’s a celeb-studded extravaganza in the glorious tradition of yesteryear featuring Bridget Everett, Jo Firestone, Nick Thune, Jen Kirkman, house band The Dap-Kings, and many more. And it’s at Joe’s Pub, everyone’s favorite home away from home in the Big Apple.

The yuletide cheer explodes Wednesday December 21 at 10P. But if you were born after 1989 and have no idea what void this spectacular special is going to fill, sample from this vintage selection of holiday hits:

Andy Williams and The NBC Kids Search For Santa

The quintessential holiday special. Get snuggly and turn off your brain. You won’t need it.

A Muppet Family Christmas

The Fraggles. The Muppets. The Sesame Street gang. Fate. The Jim Henson multiverse merges in this warm and fuzzy Holiday gathering.

Julie Andrews: The Sound Of Christmas

To this day a foolproof antidote to holiday cynicism. It’s cheesy, but a good cheese. In this case an Alpine Gruyère.

Star Wars Holiday Special

Okay, busted. This one was released in 1978. Still totally ’80s though. And yes that’s Bea Arthur.

Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special

Pass the eggnog, and make sure it’s loaded. This special is everything you’d expect it to be and much, much more.

Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special premieres Wednesday December 21 at 10P on IFC.

It Ain't Over Yet

A Guide to Coping with the End of Comedy Bang! Bang!

Watch the final episodes tonight at 11 and 11:30P on IFC.

Posted by on

After five seasons and 110 halved-hour episodes, Scott Aukerman’s hipster comedy opus, Comedy Bang! Bang!, has come to an end. Fridays at 11 and 11:30P will never be the same. We know it can be hard for fans to adjust after the series finale of their favorite TV show. That’s why we’ve prepared this step-by-step guide to managing your grief.

Step One: Cry it out

It’s just natural. We’re sad too.

Step Two: Read the CB!B! IMDB Trivia Page

The show is over and it feels like you’ve lost a friend. But how well did you really know this friend? Head over to Comedy Bang! Bang!’s IMDB page to find out some things you may not have known…like that it’s “based on a Civil War battle of the same name” or that “Reggie Watts was actually born with the name Theodore Leopold The Third.”

Step Three: Listen to the podcast

One fascinating piece of CB!B! trivia that you might not learn from IMDB is that there’s a podcast that shares the same name as the TV show. It’s even hosted by Scott Aukerman! It’s not exactly like watching the TV show on a Friday night, but that’s only because each episode is released Monday morning. If you close your eyes, the podcast is just like watching the show with your eyes closed!

Step Four: Watch brand new CB!B! clips?!

The best way to cope with the end of Comedy Bang! Bang! is to completely ignore that it’s over — because it’s not. In an unprecedented move, IFC is opening up the bonus CB!B! content vault. There are four brand new, never-before-seen sketches featuring Scott Aukerman, Kid Cudi, and “Weird Al” Yankovic ready for you to view on the IFC App. There’s also one right here, below this paragraph! Watch all four b-b-bonus clips and feel better.

Binge the entire final season, plus exclusive sketches, right now on the IFC app.

Everybody Sweats Now

The Four-Day Sweatsgiving Weekend On IFC

Posted by on

This long holiday weekend is your time to gobble gobble gobble and give heartfelt thanks—thanks for the comfort and forgiveness of sweatpants. Because when it comes right down to it, there’s nothing more wholesome and American than stuffing yourself stupid and spending endless hours in front of the TV in your softest of softests.

So get the sweats, grab the remote and join IFC for four perfect days of entertainment.

It all starts with a 24-hour T-day marathon of Rocky Horror Picture Show, then continues Friday with an all-day binge of Stan Against Evil.

By Saturday, the couch will have molded to your shape. Which is good, because you’ll be nestled in for back-to-back Die Hard and Lethal Weapon.

Finally, come Sunday it’s time to put the sweat back in your sweatpants with The Shining, The Exorcist, The Chronicles of Riddick, Terminator 2, and Blade: Trinity. They totally count as cardio.

As if you need more convincing, here’s Martha Wash and the IFC&C Music Factory to hammer the point home.

The Sweatsgiving Weekend starts Thursday on IFC
