The 15 Most Quotable Comedies Of All Time



I love watching the same movies over and over again. I have about 20 that I watch on a loop that I rarely venture outside of and I quote regularly. I don’t care that I’ve heard people directly translate the German named San Diego as a “whale’s vagina” for several years, it still makes me laugh just as hard as the first time I heard it when I was 12. Though that might just be because I have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy.

Anyway, though some of these movies are over 10 years old, they’re still wildly quoted today. Here are my 15 groolest quotable comedies, feel free to add more in the comments!

1. Borat


I’ve never seen Borat, but I don’t feel like I have to because was not a week went by in 2006 without someone saying, “Niiice” or “this suit is black…naht”, so I feel like I practically lived Borat.

2. Pitch Perfect


Pitch Perfect just so happens to be my dad’s favorite movie (he regularly says “No diggity” in our group chats) and, thanks to HBO, it’s always on in my house to the point where Pitch Perfect has incepted my dreams.

3. Clueless


I’ve already been over how much I love Paul Rudd, but the perfect one liners are why I watch it and quote it to this day. Everyday I vigilantly wait for the perfect moment to toss a casual “Uh, as if!” into the conversation.

4. Mean Girls


If you transcribed every conversation I’ve had with my friends since 2004, at least 75% of it would consist of Mean Girls quotes.

5. Forgetting Sarah Marshall



Jason Segel’s mom wasn’t the only one who was caught off guard by the surprise dick exposure (flashback to me watching this in the theater with my mom) but Forgetting Sarah Marshall is so quotable and hilarious I can forgive the slight scarring.

6. Superbad



Every time a person purchases a fake ID, a McLovin’ joke is made. True story.

7. The Hangover


Ah, the movie that brought Alias’ Bradley Cooper back into my life and changed three-person-hangs forever. (I dare you to find an Instagram of three people without a “three best friends that anyone ever had” caption.)

8. Bridesmaids


Bridesmaids made it necessary to send a crudely drawn Colonial woman churning butter on the wing every time I take an airplane to everyone in my snapchat buddy list.

9. Wedding Crashers


You can’t go to a wedding without wondering if there’s a crasher or a troubled young man with a pension for painting nude art in your midst.

10. Legally Blonde


Elle Woods set the bar for my college application essays and picking up boys and I’ve never looked back.

11. Animal House


If you don’t know someone with a poster of John Belushi wearing a sweatshirt with “College” written on it, did you even go to college?

12. Anchorman


I’ve learned more Spanish, German, and English vocabulary through this movie than my entire educational career so far.

13. Step Brothers 


Thank you, Will Ferrell for bringing my future husband, Adam Scott and his beautiful skills into my life.

14. This Is The End



By far the most ridiculous movie I’ve ever seen, but, when you really think about it, weed is tight.

15. Love Actually



It’s my go to Christmas movie, and, honestly, how else would you know that more than one lobster was present at the birth of Jesus Christ? Not even the Bible disclosed that info.

      10 things I hate about you! Technically not a comedy but still ridiculously quotable.

    • Miss Lady

      John Belushi.

      • Lily Savage

        Thanks for pointing that out!

    • CMJ

      Wayne’s World. Empire Records. Can’t Hardly Wait. So I Married an Axe Murderer.

      These are my heavy rotation quote-ables.

      • Alyssa

        “Give your mother a kiss before I kick your teeth in”

      From Legally Blonde I leek the quote from Elle’s that goes “What, like, is it hard?” When they questioned her about Harvard. I did the same when they questioned me about entering to BU. I love that quote!

    • KarenMS

      Yes. This whole list. Just yes.

    • Isis

      John, not Jim, Belushi. Do you really not know the difference?

      • Lily Savage

        Whoops, you’re right! Big ol’ brain fart

    • Nbl

      The fact that you don’t have Monty Python and the Holy Grail on this list, invalidates the entire thing. Your mother is a hamster and your father smells of elderberries! I fart in your general direction.

    • lexijoy4

      I quote She’s the Man and Just Friends more than anything else. Every line is quotable, I swear.

      • Lily Savage

        She’s The Man all the way! I’ve never seen Just Friends but I’ll have to watch it!

    • Youthier

      Super Troopers. Nothing is more quotable.

    • abby k.

      Evolution, Just Friends, and Orange County :-)

      Wish this was funnier
