Esquire ranked their 50 favorite movie pick-up lines. More than a few are rock solid choices, a couple are a little suspect and some shouldn’t have even worked in a piece of fiction.
Reciting movie lines isn’t exactly a talent but using one at just the right moment is sometimes a solid move. But what would happen if you used a pick-up line from a movie in real life? Here are a few from the list that I think might actually work in real life, so long as the woman has never seen any of these films.
“Will you marry me? Did he leave you any money? Answer the second question first.” — Groucho Marx, Duck Soup
“Your husband had told me you were the most beautiful woman he’d ever met. I didn’t expect the most beautiful woman I’d ever met.” — George Clooney, Intolerable Cruelty
“Can you keep a secret? I’m trying to organize a prison break. I’m looking for, like, an accomplice. We’d have to first get out of this bar, then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or are you out?” — Bill Murray, Lost in Translation
“Your eyes are amazing, you know that? You should never shut them, even at night.” — Olivier Martinez, Unfaithful
“You know what I heard when I first met you? Beeeeoooo! Beeeeoooo! Beeeeoooo! Beeeeoooo. That’s an ambulance, come to take me away, ’cause the sight of you stopped my heart. Beeeeoooooooooooo.” — Will Ferrell, Night at the Roxbury
“You’re good-looking. You got a beautiful body, beautiful legs, beautiful face, all these guys in love with you. Only you’ve got a look in your eye like you haven’t been fucked in a year.” — Al Pacino, Scarface
If none of these are to your liking, feel free to use my line which always, ALWAYS worked.
“You have a giant brown stain on your pants, right near the bottom. I’ll put my hand on it to cover it but I suggest we get you out of them immediately.”
