In the vein of my 11 favorite lines from movies, I will now list my favorite insults or comebacks. Some of these clips will be NSFW, so be warned!
This scene from “The Princess Bride” is one of the classic “insult scenes” of all time and not one traditional curse word was needed!
Short but sweet: Will Smith is in the middle of a gunfight in, “Bad Boys” when he get’s insulted by one of the bad guys. His reply is classic. “Fuck me? Fuck you!”.
“Garfield: You a faggot, Nash? Connor: why, Garfield? You cruising for a piece of ass?” – This line from Highlander is the inspiration behind this post. The scene is in this medley of clips from the movie.
“Should I hate him?” One of the best scenes from “Tombstone” starts out with Doc Holiday and Johnny Ringo getting a formal introduction. It goes on to them taunting each other in Latin, then Ringo pulling a gun on Doc Holiday. His reply, he mockingly takes his cup and goes through similar motions with it. Doesn’t get much better than that folks!
The movie, “The Big Lebowski” is full of clever lines, insults and retorts. Some of them simple and some more complex. Here is a long scene, starting with the introduction of “Jesus Quintana” and ending with one of the classic comebacks of all time. Enjoy! **very NSFW**
Caddyshack had some of the funniest lines in it. Including an insult laden monologue by famed comedian, Rodney Dangerfield. Hard to single one out, so enjoy the clip!
The Diehard movies are known for it’s witty lines, insults and snappy comebacks. This scene from Diehard 2 pits Captain Lorenzo up against the hero, John McClane. Bruce Willis really goes after him, including the line at the end.
Well, that’s all for now. Perhaps I will do a part 2 to this list somewhere down the line. Hope you enjoyed it!
