The 200 Best Insults In Movie History
Courtesy (and that is definitely a misnomer here) of the supremely talented Harry Hanrahan, here is an absolutely stunning collection of the 200 best insults ever heard in motion pictures. Though in this overview I wish there were more classic-era put-downs achieved without the use of vulgarity (which, I warn now, is plentiful hereforth), I cannot deny that these are, indeed, some of the most memorable slap-downs in cinematic history. I challenge all who see these to name every single movie from which these clips sprang. Given this challenge, you will have gobs of fun watching these next 20 minutes, I fucking guarantee you. By the way, Hanrahan is a master editor of clips. This rivals anything I've ever seen Chuck Workman do for either his Oscar-winning movie montage Precious Images, or anything he's done since as the Academy's favorite go-to guy for montages constructed for the various awards ceremonies in the past. This, my friends, is an absolute blast!
Now fuck off, you eunuch jelly valves....
