An Assorted Collection of the Funniest Movie Quotes of All Time

Inspector Clouseau quote
The best thing about movie quotes is that they are not necessarily about what is being said; at times, it is more about the way it is being said and, more importantly, the context. Here is a compilation of some of the funny movie quotes of all time.
A day without laughter is a day wasted. - Charlie Chaplin
If the choice is between a drama and comedy, a vast majority is likely to opt for latter. When we think of all those funny movies that we have watched, we invariably tend to recollect the hilarious dialogs from them and end up in splits. Even a film, which fails at the box office is, at times, remembered for those few funny lines, which made the whole audience laugh. That's the charm of funny movie dialogs, and here we have a few of them in form of quotes.

With hundreds of movies and thousands of quotes to choose from, it is very difficult to compile a list of the best. Like we said in the beginning, these lines are funny, also because of the way and the context in which they are said; once you take that into consideration, everything will start making sense.
