The 100 Greatest Movie Insults

Harry Hanrahan, the British guy who previously brought us the “Get out of there!montage clipskrieg, has created a brand new supercut dedicated to the 100 greatest movie insults.  I feel like a good 50 of the top 100 could all come from R. Lee Ermey in Full Metal Jacket, but I did enjoy the In Bruges clip and that fascist Malibu Sheriff from Big Lebowski.  Ooh! Ooh!  Gary Busey in Point Break!  I forgot about that one!

Listen, you snot-nosed little sh*t, I was taking shrapnel in Khe Sanh while you were crapping in your hand and rubbing it on your face!

I’d bet anything Busey ad-libbed that line.  And that was before he tried to headbutt that curb and tenderized his brain parts.  Still, I’m not sure it’s as good as “I’m going to rip your endocrine system out of your body.”  For Busey, I think another good one would be, “I’m going to stab you in the eye with the hi-liters I keep in my briefcaseButthorn.”

"Eh, whyncha go getcha shinebox, butthorn."

"Eh, whyncha go getcha shinebox, butthorn."
