Is Anchorman really the most quoted comedy of the last decade? Seems plausible; alternative candidates?

  • Billy Madison should surely be up for consideration as well, particularly the infamous game show host speech:

    Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said… is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    • UberMitch

      Note the “last decade.” Billy Madison came out in 1995.

      • God damn inflexible liberal definitions of “time” and “facts”! Can’t you let me have my moment?

  • UberMitch

    Old School left quite the quote-fest in its wake.

  • Greg

    Napoleon Dynamite would have to be a contender.

    • I’ll second this nomination.

      • i would think it’s way more quoted than anchorman. the kids, they lurvs that jon heder guy.

  • aparets

    Wedding Crashers would also have to be up there. Second the vote for Old School.

    • witless chum

      I’ve seen “Wedding Crashers,” “Old School” and “Napoleon Dynamite” and I can’t think of a quote from any of them off the top of my head.

      In my house, it’s “Dude Where’s My Car” (“I said brown”) and “Idiocracy” (“I like money”).

      • Tom Scudder

        I see the idiocracy “you talk like a fag and your shit’s all retarded” quote everywhere.

        • The “Leave me alone – ‘baitin” pops up frequently (as a joke) with my colleagues during office hours.

  • FMguru

    It falls just outside the “decade” criterion, but Big Lebowski (1998) deserves strong consideration for Most Quotable.

    • strategichamlet

      Yes, if you reach back 12 years you’d hit the twin juggernauts of The Big Lebowski and Office Space whose quotability crush anything that has come since.

      • strategichamlet

        For this decade I’d say Idiocracy is the winner with Supertroopers a distant second.

      • wow, i’d nominate the big lebowski for the most quoted movie of the last three decades, and i believe that would include caddyshack, but i’m too lazy to look up the imdb page to find the exact date.

        • mark f

          Yeah, well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.

  • larryb33

    What’s that line from The White Ribbon

  • Ginger Yellow

    Assuming we’re ignoring Lebowski, I still don’t think Anchorman is the most quoted, at least in the UK. If I had to guess it would be Napoleon Dynamite, but other contenders are Shaun of the Dead and, recently, In The Loop.

    • Oh, yeah. “You’ve got red on you” and “a slice of fried gold” are well ahead of anything else remotely recent in my house.

  • mark f

    Anchorman, like Wedding Crashers and The Hangover, was one of those recent “funniest movie ever!”s that I didn’t enjoy at all.

    I do agree, however, that “I’m kind of a big deal” was probably the most quoted single line of the last ten years (f’reelz; go to all your cheesy associates’ MySpace pages and look at their “About Me” sections). “I’m rich, bitch!” and “I’m Rick James, bitch!” are probably what I heard second most, and goddamn was I sick of bad Borat impressions before the fucking movie even came out.

  • stogoe

    I love…Lamp.

    Office Space and Lebowski definitely won the 90s. I’m comfortable with Anchorman in the top 3 for the Zeroes.

  • Ben Natkin

    Those of you arguing against Wedding Crashers were obviously far too old to catch the college age male demographic, by far the biggest movie quoters.

    “MA! THE MEATLOAF!”
    “Rule 76, no excuses, play like a champion.”
    “Tattoo on the lower back? Might as well be a bullseye.”
    “You motorboating son of a bitch! You old sailor you.”
    “The painting was a gift, Todd, I’m taking it with me.”
    “You shut your mouth when you’re talking to me.”

    Just another example of you ivory tower liberals out of touch with the common people

    • Ben Natkin

      OH! Not to mention

      “Erroneous! Erroneous on both counts!”

  • norbizness

    Motherfuckers are ALWAYS quoting Persepolis.

    • nitpicker

      I know. Gets old.

  • Anonymous

    I haven’t seen most of these movies and would be curious as to how often people are quoting stuff I don’t recognize.

    BTW, Austin Powers was huge in the 90s.

    This decade, I’m trying to build up “Difficult Difficult Lemon Difficult” but it doesn’t seem to be working.

  • Halloween Jack

    Hard to say, because I haven’t seen Anchorman. In general, though, I wouldn’t trust AICN if they told me that water was wet.

  • nitpicker

    I have to admit that a week doesn’t go by without someone in my house saying “milk was a bad choice.”

    And it still cracks me up every time.

  • Fighting Words

    I guess there is no love for .

    • Fighting Words

      That should have read: “I guess there is no love for ‘Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.'”

  • Frank

    Maybe I’m old but then so is my entire office judging by this. I still hear more “Office Space” than all the ’00s put together.

  • Stooleo

    Well, it falls out of the decade old requirement, but in my day we quoted Caddyshack a lot. But hell what do I know, we also used tie an onion to our belts cause it was the fashion at the time.

    • Hell, old timer, Caddyshack‘s got nothing on Horse Feathers for quotability.

      • BillCinSD

        Keystone Kops were great and they wrote the wrote the quote out for you

        • lol! actually, speaking of horsefeathers, i was just quoting the mirror scene from duck soup the other day to my 5 year old niece.

  • Sophist

    Sixty percent of the time, people quote Anchorman every time.

  • Robin

    What about Mean Girls?? That is quoted a LOT around here. “don’t have sex. You will get pregnant & die.”

  • BravesWin

    I’m gonna go old school on y’all – I know, outside the bounds of discussion – and say The Princess Bride.

    Have fun stormin’ da castle!
