Memorable Vince Vaughn Quotes In Celebration Of Opening Day of “The Watch”
Tonight is the opening night of The Watch, starring Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade, and Ben Stiller. The Watch, formerly titled Neighbourhood Watch, is about four vigilante nobodies teaming together during an alien invasion, after a night-time security guard is skinned alive. I am looking forward to this movie. I have a sick, twisted sense of humour that is tickled by potty language and R rated comedies. The best part of all…Vince Vaughn is one of the lead characters. He is the reason why I’m going to fork out $12 of my hard earned cash to sit uncomfortably in an overly air-conditioned theatre with a dirty shoe near my head.
Even if he is a Chicago Blackhawks fan, I have never ceased to like Vince Vaughn’s one-persona acting, and am looking forward to the on-screen dynamic of his character. Don’t get me wrong – I love the other guys, but Vince has always wooed me with his frat-boy charm. And, he kind of looks like my father, which is completely weird and totally unrelated.
Although it’s all in his delivery, this fast-talking entertainer has formed and shaped our expectation of humour today. He is never stuck for words and sharp phrases, some of which have been added to our own daily vocabulary, such as “earmuffs” and “you’re money.” I read an article online titling these phrases as Vince Vaughnese –are you fluent? Money. Since I can’t write about the movie (yet), I have compiled a list of my favourite Vince movie quotes to keep us entertained:
From Four Christmases: “Well you really can’t spell families without lies.”
From Swingers: “There’s nothing wrong with letting the girls know that you’re money and that you want to party.”
From Old School: “College is overrated anyway, I built Speaker City from the ground up and I can barely read.”
From Old School: “Max, can you earmuff for me? We are going to get so much ass here, it’s going to be sick. I’m talking like crazy boy band ass.”
From Old School: “Why don’t you go ahead and give me your number, that way if something happens to my wife I can give you a call.”
From Wedding Crashers: “A tattoo on the lower back? Might as well be a bullseye.”
From Dodgeball: “I found that if you have a goal, that you might not reach it. But if you don’t have one, then you are never disappointed. And I gotta tell ya… it feels phenomenal.”
…and from real life Vince Vaughn:
“If I’m not interested in a woman, I’m straight-forward. Right after sex, I usually say, ‘I can’t do this anymore. Thanks for coming over!’”
“I quit smoking four months ago and since then I have been biting-chewing-fidgeting with anything that isn’t nailed down. I quit cold turkey. I was up to two packs a day, I’m coughing, my eyes are red, I don’t have energy, I’m not even enjoying it, so I just said, ‘That’s it.’ I think it might’ve been easier if I went with Nicorette or one of those supplements, but I just don’t get that. Let’s see, I’m addicted to something, so I know! Let’s pop some pills to get over it! Yeah, that makes sense. But now I find myself in conversations where people are looking at me and I’m salivating all over myself. This is how pathetic and sad it is: you start thinking, ‘Who am I without a cigarette in my hand?’”
