One of the things that makes a good movie great for me is its quotability. The more awesome memorable oneliners the better… in fact there are quite a few film that I can almost quote along line for line. I think we all have a couple of those, my husband possibly too many. Trust me, you do not want to watch Withnail and I with him. These are the ones that have all my most loved lines in them. Just in case no one has noticed, I am completely stuck in the 90s.
