30 best movie insults

Picture the scene: you've just stubbed your toe and it's the same damn toe you stubbed last week. There's no one to blame but that stupid, smug table leg. But you're sick of shouting random swears at the thing. It's clearly not making a difference to its attitude.

Fear not. Cinema is here to help. Again.

As well as teaching us how to inspire others (preferably disadvantaged schoolkids), films also give us a wide variety of inventive insults to utilise in extremely necessary situations. We've assembled 30 of the best below.

Let us know if we've missed off your favourite at the bottom.
