King of the World

Poll reveals cheesiest film lines

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio's declaration "I'm the king of the world!" in the film Titanic has been voted the cheesiest line in movie history.

Patrick Swayze's famous line in Dirty Dancing - "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" - came second in the survey.

"Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed," uttered by Andie MacDowell at the end of Four Weddings and a Funeral was placed third.

The survey of 2,000 film-goers was commissioned by foodmakers Warburtons.

Swayze makes another appearance at four in Ghost, although the cheesy line belongs to co-star Demi Moore. "I love you," Swayze says, to which Moore replies: "Ditto."

Top Gun came fifth for the moment Val Kilmer tells Tom Cruise: "You can be my wingman any time."


Julia Roberts' line from Notting Hill - "I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her" - was voted sixth.

Bill Pullman is at seven for the moment when - as the US President - he vows to fight off alien invasion: "Today we celebrate our Independence Day."

Eighth place went to this Mel Gibson line from Braveheart: "They make take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!"

Renee Zellweger was ninth on the list for the line in Jerry Maguire when she says to Tom Cruise: "You had me at hello."

And a line delivered by Kevin Costner in his flop The Postman rounds off the top 10.
"You're a godsend, a saviour," a blind woman tells his character. "No," he replies. "I'm a postman."
