Mega Meta Category Recap: Best One Liner

Ah, Best One Liner - the category where we reward a film, not for failure, but for success. Did someone just say something that was meant to be funny? Did it actually make us laugh? Here is where we salute that effort, and here are your nominations to choose from:

2007 Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (Smithee)

In Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone our hero, the aforementioned Spacehunter, is adventuring in the Forbidden Zone when he is suddenly surrounded by a troupe of predatory - but not entirely unattractive - female warriors. Looking him over, they begin to discuss his attributes amongst themselves:
Amazon #1: "Good breeding man."

Amazon #2: "I bet breeding with us would kill him."

Spacehunter: "I'll take that bet."

The three surviving teen heros of Scarecrow Gone Wild have determined that the secret behind the creature that has been killing their friends must be somewhere in this building. As they prepare to enter, one of them displays a moment of Genre Savvy awareness and tells his friends: "If I hear the words 'let's split up,' I will bitchslap the both of you."

The barbarian hero of Wizards of the Demon Sword has just learned the secret behind the blade that will release a horrifying demon from captivity - the appointed bladekeeper must use it to kill their firstborn. The evil overlord who stole the blade has been sacrificing people by the cartload with no success, but now he's gotten ahold of the bladekeeper's daughter. As the ancient sage tells our hero: "Foolproof plans are hard to come by, son!"

John Henry Irons - the armor-clad hero of Steel is testing his hammer weapon in combat against a car full of gangbangers. As he deploys the sonic cannon he says "It's hammer time." When it actually works, his grandfatherly mentor proclaims "Well, I'll be dipped in shit and rolled in breadcrumbs."

The camera follows a well dressed man through a crowded club. It's Mr. Scarface - the deadly mob enforcer. After he passes a table, one of the club patrons tells his companion: "Atsa Scarface. He's bad news. Just looking at him and my asshole twitches."
