Website Names Year’s Smartest Movie Quotes

KELOWNA, B.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Oscars aren’t until February 25, but one movie buff in Kelowna, British Columbia, has already started giving out awards – for the year’s smartest movie quotes.

Movie maniac Doug Manning has compiled a list of the smartest movie quotes of 2006 and his No. 1 choice is this pearl of wisdom from the Robert Altman flick A Prairie Home Companion: “Every show is your last show. That’s my philosophy.”

Other quotes that made the cut include one made by Clive Owen in Inside Man: “The further you run from your sins; the more exhausted you are when they catch up to you.”

Jack Nicholson’s line in The Departed – “I don’t want to be a product of my environment; I want my environment to be a product of me” – is a wise quote made by a wise guy.

Finally, boxer Rocky Balboa isn’t known for his smarts but a line Sylvester Stallone wrote for him to say in Rocky Balboa – “It ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward” – is considered pretty intelligent by Manning.
