The Best Cinematic Insults

The dramatic/comedic use of The Insult goes back to the Greeks. It’s a timeless language tool that, when well-penned, enables characters to skewer one another in the most hurtful, brutally truthful, and sometimes blunt ways possible. And the movies are no exception. In fact, some of the best insults ever are preserved in our contemporary Greek comedies and tragedies called Film.

Obviously NSFW material, and if you’re a herder of nerfs, you may be sensitive to at least one of these classic insults.

    National Lampoon Christmas Vacation is my personal favorite on delivery out of all of them.

    Oh, but Gary Busey wins every contest he’s in, seriously. Especially when he’s referencing feces face rubbing.
