It's probably safe to assume that the most-quoted genre in all of cinema is probably comedy. A good comedy — and there have been many over the years — can come up with at least five or or six above-average zingers, lines that are sure to be remembered, cherished and repeated to the point where it stops being funny ... and then comes around to being even funnier.
Here are some of the funniest quotes from 50 of our favorite comedies — in meme form, for your re-posting convenience. Share the laughter, why don'tcha?

Is Amanda Bynes at it again? A new report says the troubled actress actually went after a fan in Atlantic City, N.J. Friday night, June 14.
Radar Online reports that Amanda was spotted by a father and son at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City. The son, Brett Cohen, says "She was stumbling and reeked of alcohol." He adds that Bynes was carrying a huge handbag and what looked like a pet carrier.
At a certain point Brett's dad, Bobby, decided to take a photo of Amanda. That's when things went awry. "She started yelling at my dad and lunging at him," according to Brett. "I told her 'Amanda, you can't do that, leave him alone,'" Brett says, "and she just freaked out screaming, 'he can't take my picture'."
He says a couple security people tried to calm Amanda down before she walked off. As she left, Brett snapped »
Cox has made a name for herself starring in television shows, first with stints on "Family Ties" and "Misfits of Science." She's, of course, best known for playing Monica on "Friends." Following the end of that iconic series, Cox took the part of Jules on the cult comedy "Cougar Town." The actress will step behind the camera for "Hello I Must Be Going," a role she has some experience with, as Cox directed episodes of "Cougar Town" in the past.
Penned by screenwriter David Flebotte ("Desperate Housewives"), "Hello I Must Be Going" will tell the story of a troubled man who returns to his hometown to make things right before he plans to commit suicide, according to Deadline. Seann William Scott »

If the two leads on "Melissa & Joey" don't make fans think of classic '90s sitcoms, they added a third for this week's episode. Joe found a new love interest, and it was none other than Marla Sokoloff. Sokoloff played Stephanie's rival/best friend, Gia Mahan, on "Full House."
While she was a bit of a bad girl on that show, she proved to be way more of a good girl than Joe ever expected. After getting challenged by Mel to not have sex right away in every new relationship, Joe tried taking it slow. Marla's character, Chelsea, couldn't believe he was so different from most men. She then revealed that she was still a virgin.
“I just always thought my first time would be more meaningful if I waited for the perfect man. So, I hope you’re cool with waiting," she told him.
“I love waiting!" Joey lied. »

Today, Can't Hardly Wait turns 15 years old and somewhere that dorky teenage version of you is still romanticizing the thought of snagging the hottest girl at school because, you know, you're charming and stuff. Released on June 12, 1998, Can't Hardly Wait marked the last of the great '90s party movies. A year later American Pie would hit theaters, ushering in a resurgence of the dirty teen sex comedy, and a new crop of movies that were more vulgar and sexual, and built around a series of big set pieces. But in between the more endearing John Hughes movies and the pie-f**king American Pie movies, there were these gems from a decade obsessed with wish fulfillment. These were films defined by their soundtracks, their party scenes and their colorful young teen...

On June 12, 1998, Can’t Hardly Wait premiered in theaters. Though it was hardly a runaway hit at the box office, it helped launch the careers of many stars and kicked off several years of highly popular teen films that would be responsible for shaping our high school (and college) years. The film was particularly known for its ensemble cast that was filled with tons of “before they were famous” stars including Jason Segel (Watermelon Guy), Sean Patrick Thomas (Jock Friend) and Ethan Embry (Preston Meyers), who was emerging from a world of child acting into adulthood. Fifteen years later, Embry took the time out of filming a werewolf thriller, Late Phases, to chat with VH1 Celebrity about the vibe on set, his “altered” state and what the movie was actually about.

Arrested Development has come and gone, which means it's time for Netflix to move on to its next high-profile series. The next entry in the premium video platform's originals catalog is Orange Is The New Black, a dramedy set in a women's prison. Orange Is The New Black is based off of an autobiographical book by Piper Kerman, who wrote a personal memoir about the time she spent in jail. The series follows Kerman's (Taylor Schilling) attempt to navigate the slammer after getting caught up in a drug ring. The creator of the show is Jenji Kohan, who turned a similar concept (i.e. white-collar woman lives the life of a petty criminal) in TV gold with the Emmy winner Weeds. Kohan's presence continues Netflix's trend of serving as a distribution platform for high-profile creators; in fact, all of the site's original series come from known names. Other notables in »

Review Caroline Preece 7 Jun 2013 - 07:00
A smaller film that deserves support, Caroline checks out new comedy Come As You Are...
Belgian comedy-drama Come as You Are (Hasta La Vista) is not at all the film you’d expect. When reading the synopsis – three men in their 20s travel to a brothel in Spain in the hopes of losing their virginities at last – you might be looking forward to an Inbetweeners-style comedy or a European take on the American Pie franchise and, upon learning that the three men are, in fact, disabled, you wouldn’t be blamed for doubting how funny said comedy could really be (how many times have we seen some form of disability mocked in comedies, after all?). Yet, to the film’s ultimate credit, the fact that Jozef, Philip and Lars all have a disability doesn’t make a blind bit of difference.

Netflix is on a roll and they're not planning on letting up anytime soon. Following the release of "House of Cards," "Hemlock Grove" and the much-anticipated fourth season of "Arrested Development," the website is readying the release of their next original series, "Orange is the New Black."
A dramedy from "Weeds" creator Jenji Kohan, "Orange" is based on the same-named memoir from Piper Kerman, telling the story of a well-off white woman who finds herself in a women's prison after a 10-year-old charge for running drug money comes back to haunt her.
Taylor Schilling ("Mercy") stars as Piper, alongside Jason Biggs ("American Pie") as her fiance and Laura Prepon ("That '70s Show") as the drug dealer who got her into trouble all those years ago. The cast is rounded out by Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne and Taryn Manning.
The entire season will be released all at once on July 11. Check »
“I have been felt up, stalked and called Taylor Swift.”

Based on the memoir of the same name, Orange follows the upper-middle-class Piper after a decade-old involvement with a drug runner (That ’70s Show‘s Laura Prepon) earns her a year-long jail sentence.

Richard Crudo served three terms as president of the American Society of Cinematographers during the mid-’00s, and he’s back atop the guild after eight years.

There was a time when seeing the words .National Lampoon. in front of a film.s title was a sign of comedic quality and a good source for laughter. But that ended a long time ago, and they.ve devolved into something as tragic as the films that come .From the Guys That Brought You American Pie. and whatever Hollywood is calling a parody film nowadays. In steps another humorous comedy brand, CollegeHumor, who are looking to build upon their generally excellent short video archive with their first attempt at branching into feature films. And so we have Coffee Town. And as you can tell from the above trailer, this isn.t exactly going to stop comedy fans in their tracks, though almost everyone involved in it makes it seem far more interesting, and one wonders just how long this thing was sitting under a coffee table before someone decided »
★★★☆☆ The prospect of a trio of twentysomething virgins embarking on a sexual odyssey of a road-trip is not likely to seem unfamiliar to most cinema audiences. In Geoffrey Enthoven's Belgian comedy Come As You Are (Hasta la Vista, 2011) this potentially tired convention is given a cute twist in that each of the young men is severely disabled. As such, their voyage is more akin to that of Mark O'Brien in The Sessions (2012) than the cruder hijinks of the gross-out American Pie franchise. Avoiding over-sentimentality it proves a humorous, good natured affair which perhaps proves a little too generic but is an enjoyable ride nonetheless.
Philip (Robrecht Vanden Thoren) is a paraplegic, Lars (Gilles de Schrijver) has a debilitating terminal cancer and Jozef (Tom Audenaert) is almost completely blind. Philip and Lars are both confined to wheelchairs and Jozef uses a magnifier to see. One day, on the suggestion of a never-seen friend called Curt, »

Somewhat surprisingly Geoffrey Enthoven’s Come As You Are is not the first feature film this year to deal with the theme of disabled men losing their virginity, following on from the Oscar nominated The Sessions. However unlike the Hollywood offering, this Belgian picture takes something of a more comedic approach, lightly depicting the trials and tribulations of three handicapped guys embarking on a mission to lose their virginities. Think of this as a hybrid between American Pie and Little Miss Sunshine. With added wheels.
When Philip (Robrecht Vanden Thoren), paralysed from the neck down, decides that he wants to finally have sex, he manages to persuade his two best friends Jozef (Tom Audenaert), who is blind, and Lars (Gilles De Schrijver), terminally ill with a tumour, to travel to Spain to a specialised brothel to suit their needs. However they must do so without letting their parents know of their intentions, »

Masturbation is still a bit of a taboo subject in our society, but that didn't stop one sex-toy store from marking May as National Masturbation Month in the mid-90s. No joke.
As the month of May comes to an end, HuffPost Entertainment would like to send it off with a mash-up dedicated to the self-loving deed: "Masturbation In Film." Cinema hasn't shied away from masturbation, whether it's the comedic ("Fast Times At Ridgemont High"), the tragic ("Black Swan") or the just plain weird ("Grandma's Boy"). While the mashup does not include all masturbation scenes, we tried to pay tribute to a handful of the best.

When looking over the cast for a little low budget horror flick, you don't usually see the names of Academy Award nominees. That rarely happens. Usually you get cats like Dustin Diamond, etc. Well, the upcoming flick Scavenger Killers inexplicably has them both and then some!
Dylan Bank directs from a screenplay by Kenneth Del Vecchio and Rachael Robbins. Now here's the neat thing... the cast! Eric Roberts, Robert Loggia, and Charles Durning all star along with Robert Bogue (The Good Guy, "Guiding Light"), Rachael Robbins (An Affirmative Act, Screaming Dead), Dustin Diamond ("Saved by the Bell"), Kim Allen ("Army Wives"), Angela Little (American Pie Bandcamp, The Life Zone), and Suzi Lorraine (Solid State, The Haunting of Pearson Place).

It's been over a year and a half, but it seems as though the "Booster Gold" live action series is finally in motion. Earlier this week, "Arrow" producer Andrew Kreisberg announced, via Twitter, that the "Booster Gold" pilot he wrote for SyFy is finally making its way over to the television network next week. While SyFy initially ordered a pilot script from Kreisberg back in November 2011, it's likely that their decision to move ahead with the pilot was heavily influenced by the success of the CW's "Arrow."
Now it still may be a ways away, but we can't help but think of what the next steps would be towards producing an actual "Booster Gold" pilot episode. With a script from a proven successful producer in hand, all SyFy needs now is a brilliant lead actor to portray Booster Gold on the small screen. So what are our options here? »

As The Hangover Part III looks set to clean up at the box office, Simon wonders why comedies can't aim a bit higher....
Amongst the many majestic scenes in Carl Reiner's hugely underappreciated comedy classic All Of Me is one where Steve Martin has to go the toilet. By this time, he's sharing a body with Lily Tomlin, with each of them controlling one half of it. Thus, Martin needs Tomlin to, bluntly, do the necessaries.
It's brilliantly and simply shot, with Tomlin's face the reflection in the mirror, delivering a difficult performance pitch perfectly. Martin, not for the first time in his career, is genuinely astounding too, one of the most gifted comedy actors of all time. They take a simple scene, and turn it into something special. Basically, two gifted performers sell you a superb, very funny scene about a man having a pee. »
