In the 80s there were a load of movies that over used the line 'It's Showtime'.

Also if it's a movie involving a computer game you can always guarantee that the poster will say, 'is it a game or is it real?' or similar variations.

Same goes for a fantasy on the poster they'll use, ‘Seeing is believing'

"I love you"

Seriously, I watched The Constant Gardener the other day, they must've used that phrase like, 20 times.

'Let's go'. Preceeded or followed by the chambering a shotgun round.

No, I have one, I was being facicious(sp?).



...but she is going to school in Washington, so I only get to see her every few months. Not that that's anyone's business. Wink

Hmmm...no one has mentioned "I'll be back"? Arnie coined the phrase but I have seen a few movies that have used this recently....

'Jeff? Have you used my hand cream?'

The times I've heard that line in films.
