Top 5 Famous Movie Quotes

The Survey Says

Movies create enduring memories and become part of the cultural fabric of our society. So much so, that many lines from movies can be quoted and recognized immediately.

For this post, we’re going to do something a little differently. We’re going to list the Top 5 all-time movie quotes from Tinseltown Classics. And then, we’re also going to list the Top 5 movie quotes from our survey of elementary school teachers.

The twist: we’re just going to give you the quote and a hint and you will have to guess the movie. You can check your answers with the link on the bottom of this page.

Good luck!

“Go ahead, make my day.”
It’s hard to detach the actor from the character but this classic 80’s sequel recognized him as the ultimate tough guy.

“Just keep swimming.”
A more lighthearted choice from our respondents, this is one of the newer quotes on the list. Playful, funny and wet?

Coming in at #2 on our teacher list, this 90’s box office smash provided one of film’s most lovable and memorable characters.
