Iconic pickup lines from movies

Listen, we know that not everyone can be as smooth as the criminal that Michael Jackson chose to sing about. When it comes to talking to strangers that we find attractive, sometimes it can feel a bit like trying to sail a boat across a desert.

If you spend a little more time on an online bingo site than you do in your local, then we’re guessing that “social extrovert” is not really how you’d describe your personality. Unless you look drop-dead gorgeous and have the gift of the gab, chances are that you aren’t always confident in your pickup skills. This is nothing to worry about, however, as 99.9% of the population has at some stage choked on a line that they’ve wanted to use to impress someone!

Luckily for you, and for us, there are countless iconic pickup lines from films that we can draw inspiration from. Keep in mind that some of these could just work because they came from the lips of George Clooney or Audrey Hepburn. Be respectful, be kind, and take some confidence in the fact that even the dumbest pickup lines from these films did tend to work in the end (to varying degrees).

Here we have some of the most iconic, romantic, brave, and downright idiotic pickup lines from movies to give you some ideas. Read, learn, and attempt. Good luck with your endeavours! 


You’re going to have to forgive us if we’ve put any of your favourites in the wrong category (everyone has their own opinion, right?), but here goes!

Last but (maybe) not least

And, um, you tend to let whatever’s in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences… But the thing is, um, what I’m trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are.”
