    "King of the World" voted cheesiest movie line

    Survey: 'Titanic' earns cheesiest movie line
    Tuesday, December 7, 2004 Posted: 9:25 AM EST (1425 GMT)

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Although "Titanic" soared at the box office in 1997, according to a recent survey, its most memorable line -- "I'm the king of the world!" -- sunk.

    British baker Warburtons posed the question "What are your top three cheesiest moments in film?" to 2,000 U.K. moviegoers in celebration of the launch of their new cheese-flavored crumpets.

    The line uttered by Leonardo DiCaprio was followed by Patrick Swayze's "Nobody puts baby in the corner" from 1987's "Dirty Dancing" and Andie McDowell's "Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed," from the end of 1994's "Four Weddings and a Funeral."

    Warburtons reports that surveyed women opted for romantic comedy moments from films such as "Notting Hill" and "Jerry Maguire" and men preferred silly scenes from action flicks like "Top Gun" and "Braveheart."

    Despite the gender divide, 33 percent of the overall vote unanimously agreed on the "Titanic" yell as the cheesiest moment.

    The list of big cheese moments:

    1. "Titanic": Leonardo DiCaprio's "I'm the king of the world!"
    2. "Dirty Dancing": Patrick Swayze's "Nobody puts Baby in the corner."
    3. "Four Weddings And A Funeral": Andie McDowell's "Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed."
    4. "Ghost": Demi Moore's "Ditto," to Patrick Swayze's "I love you."
    5. "Top Gun": Val Kilmer to Tom Cruise: "You can be my wingman anytime."
    6. "Notting Hill": Julia Roberts' "I'm just a girl ... standing in front of a boy ... asking him to love her."
    7. "Independence Day": Bill Pullman's "Today we celebrate our Independence Day!"
    8. "Braveheart": Mel Gibson's "They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!"
    9. "Jerry Maguire": Renee Zellweger to Tom Cruise: "You had me at hello."
    10. "The Postman": A blind woman says to Kevin Costner: "You're a godsend, a savior." He replies: "No, I'm a postman."

    Jerry Macguire - "You complete me".

    One of the worst lines in all of movie history.

    When I think of that saying, I always think, instead, of Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) saying that to Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger) when they're goofing around on the boat and he falls in with a cigarrette in his mouth.

    8. "Braveheart": Mel Gibson's "They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!"
    All these years I thought it was "They may take our wives.... " Derp!

    And I always thought "you had me at hello" was the worst. At least the "You complete me" line had a tie in with the cute scene earlier in the movie.

    Patrick Swayze must be ever so proud to be mentioned on this list twice.

    I love Nottinghill as much as the next person BUT .... I think number 6 should have been number 1 because that line really is too cheezy lol ..... No matter how deep into the movie I am at the time, I always cringe when that line comes up lol

    Like Rumpshaker, I thought "Bridget Jones" when I read that "king of the world" was voted cheesiest line.... although it was not cheesy in the Bridget Jones context, it was funny ... in Titanic...... yup........cheeez

    "i'm king of the world" is rightfully number one. I remember cringing everytime I heard it parodied, or was on tv.

    I cringe every time I remember Titanic director James Cameron yelling that line out when accepting an Academy Award for the movie. How embarassing for him.
    I live in my own world. But it's ok, they know me there.

    I do have to agree with the "is it raining? I didn't notice" line from Four Weddings being very cheesy, I love the movie, but have always hated that line.

    But the clear winner is "I'm king of the world!"
