We all love a good romance film. However, sometimes you have to wonder who comes up with these cringe-worthy lines. Sometimes the dialogue is borderline horrendous. 


Ricki: It’s turkey time.

Larry Gigli: Huh?

Ricki: Gobble, gobble.

Did the director of this film really shoot this scene thinking that it would be good? Surely the first sign that your scriptwriter is crazy is the addition of a line as terribly insane and totally unsexy as that? Turkeys are not sexy.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Christian: I would like to fuck you into the middle of next week

The book itself is filled with countless cringe-worthy lines. A handful of these make it into the film. Perhaps the weirdest is this line, which literally comes out of nowhere. Quite frankly, this line makes every viewer burst out laughing as Jamie Doran’s serious delivery of the line.

10 Things I Hate About You

I hate the way you talk to me and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much that it makes me sick

Don’t get me wrong, I love this movie. But this scene was a little awkward. Imagine standing up in front of your class and aiming a heart-wrenching poem at the lad who ghosted you? Cringe.

Jerry Maguire

Jerry: I love you. You complete me.

In real life, if any lad said to this a girl she’d run a mile. Fact.

Definitely, Maybe

Because the first time that I saw these hands, I couldn’t imagine not being able to hold them

This is a little bit full-on to say the least. I am not sure what the screenwriter was thinking when they write this line for Ryan Reynolds.
