Me and a buddy went to see Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance on Friday and it was surprisingly good in a kind of ‘we know this is really stupid but we’re just gonna make it as dumb and stupid as possible’ kind of way. But it got us to talking after it about just how many great/dumb movies Nicolas Cage has been in and there are SO MANY.
Off the top of my head you’ve got Wild At Heart, Con Air, The Rock, Matchstick Men, Gone in 60 Seconds, Snake Eyes, The Wicker Man, Face/Off, Raising Arizona, Ghost Rider, Drive Angry, Bad Lieutenant, Adaptation, Honeymoon in Vegas, Leaving Las Vegas, Red Rock West, Fast Times at Ridgemont High etc etc There really are a shit ton of them. And what normally makes them so great is Nicolas Cage and his dumbass performances. So I was pretty stoked when I stumbled across this new video with the 100 best Nicolas Cage quotes when I got home on Friday night. Sometimes things just work out I guess. Boy are there some crackers in there, like:
‘Watch your mouth. Watch your fucking mouth!’
‘Why couldn’t you put the bunny back in the box?’
‘I just stole fifty cars for you in one night! I’m a little tired, a little wired and I think I deserve a little appreciation’
‘How in the name of Zeus’ butthole did you get out of your cell?’
‘What am I a retard man? Am I a fucking retard harr?’
‘How’d it get burned? How’d it get burned? How’d it get burned?’
Of course these quotes are nothing just written down on a page – you really need to see Nicolas Cage deliver them to appreciate their true hilarity. Check it out below:
I imagine most people have already seen the classic Nicolas Cage losing his shit video as it’s been on the internet for years, but in case you haven’t here it is again. Hell, if you’ve already seen it you might as well just watch it again because you know how hilarious it is.
