'King of the world' crowned worst movie line


Actor Leonardo DiCaprio's declaration "I'm the king of the world!" in Titanic has been voted the cheesiest line in movie history, according to a survey of 2,000 British moviegoers, reports the BBC.

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

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

Fourth place belongs to Demi Moore in Ghost. "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 sixth.

Bill Pullman is seventh for the moment when, as U.S. President, he vows to fight off an alien invasion: "Today we celebrate our Independence Day."

Eighth place went to Mel Gibson's line in Braveheart: "They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!"

Renee Zellweger was ninth 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 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."
