Dunno. I don't think I've heard of Anchorman, and Dodgeball looks entirely to stupid too waste good money on at the theater. I'll likely rent it, however.

Anchorman is Will Farrels<sp?> new film

I'll have to go with Neither as well. As said before, Office Space is like Dilbert put to film. It IS what a modern office is like. Both Anchorman and Dodgeball are not comedies you can relate to so directly. They could be as good or better than OS, but still it's apples and oranges.

I should claifiy something in this poll

 

 

I'm not trying to state that these two films relate to real life like Office Space does so well because I would have to agree that nither of these two films do that.

 

I'm mearly asking of these two films which has the more quotable lines to use.

The best quotes come from "little" movies that fly a bit under the radar (Office Space, Raising Arizona, Caddyshack, Blues Brothers, Heathers). Anchorman and Dodgeball are too heavily advertised to be truly good sources. How lame is it to say "Alrighty then!" or "Hasta la vista, baby," whereas "Sounds like a case of the Mondays," "Her insides were a rocky place, where my seed could find no purchase," "So I got that going for me," "We're on a mission from God," and "Corn Nuts" are classics for the ages.

Dodgeball looks like it might be retarded, so I guess, Anchorman... but it's hard to tell for sure how good it'll be.

I saw Dodgeball last night, its pretty far from retarted; and provides for some great one liners. Its a really funny movie. Most of the comedy comes from the dialogue. There were many moments the crowd missed some zinggers cause people were laughing to loud.

"You are young and you got your health. What do you want with a job?"

 

I love Raising Arizona. :tu: Thanks for the laugh, Allen.

 

I am a true connoisseur of movie quotes. I weave them into my everyday conversations all the time, and then I wind up having to explain where they came from.

 

Even if we've seen the movies many times or scrutinized the scripts, I still don't think we could predict which ones would yield the quotables. The movie's just got to have that something special that people connect with. Allen's examples are all good ones.

 

Sometimes, in the case of a really cool movie, a quote emerges that is not even in the movie. We've all heard or used, "Anyone, Anyone. Bueller?" many times, but that quote is not in the movie. "Anyone?, Anyone?" is used when the teacher is trying to get the class to discuss "Voodoo Economics". And "Bueller?, Bueller?" is earlier when the teacher is taking role call. But somehow these got strung together and we just go with it.

I didn't think Dodgeball was all that great of a movie, but there are a few lines that were very entertaining.

 

The guest appearances are what really steals the show though.

 

I thought Vince Vaughn was... well, quite simply... awful. His whole performance seemed like he was just there to collect a paycheck and not even bother to try and act.

Agreed... dodgeball wasn't that gread IMO. There were some parts where I laughed, but it just really wasn't that great. I didn't really like Vince Vaughn in it, seeing as he just seemed so bored when he was acting throughout the movie. Ben Stiller, was the exact opposite. He was... "over-acting." He seems to have a tendency to do so in most movies he's in, though. (ie: Zoolander.)

 

"Fucking Chuck Norris..."

 

That's one line that you could put into conversation.
