Never Misquote Your Favorite Movie Again
In a revealing video by the folks over at Alltime 10's
, we learn that some of our favorite, classic movie quotes have been butchered by a never-ending, collective game of broken telephone. What do we mean exactly? Well, for instance, Gordon Gekko's classic, oft-quoted line, "Greed is good," from Wall Street
, is actually not as snappy. The line actually delivered by Michael Douglas is this: "The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for a lack of a better word, is good." Doesn't quite roll off the tongue the same way, does it? Other films included on the list include Casablanca
, The Graduate
, and Dirty Harry.
And, trust us when we say that the number one movie misquote of all time will shock you. It's one of the most famous lines in film history, and it's almost never said correctly. Hint: It involves some punk kid named Luke, and his dear old dad. Check out the video below. (YouTube
