20 Entertaining And Funny Movie Quotes To Lighten Your Day


Share this story with friends

Funny movie quotes don’t always come from funny movies.

Often they are just “throwaway lines” uttered by one of the characters, which are amusing in themselves but without any real connection to the storyline. For many years the “James Bond” movies were known for such quips. When Bond was played by Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Pierce Brosnan, the audience was always waiting for the wisecrack comment. The latest Bond – Daniel Craig has pretty much dropped the practice.

While some of our quotes have been delivered by known comedians such as Groucho Marx, Woody Allen, Billy Crystal, Rowan Atkinson, and Robin Williams, most come from people who are thought of as serious. We even included a quote from Al Gore, taken from his documentary movie. They don’t come much more serious than that!

The Life Daily team has researched film archives to find those quotes which are funny on their own merit

Our problem was that, frequently, words are simply not funny out of context. But we think we cracked it, so now we have 20 great quotes to entertain you.
