Poseidon may have opened to a dismal $22 million last weekend, but it was the mildewed flick’s choice ”dialogue” that left us speechless. Herewith, our top four terrifically terrible lines.

”I’m an architect. These ships weren’t designed to stay afloat upside down.”

— Richard Nelson (Richard Dreyfuss)

”It’s a pressure valve. It won’t open unless there’s tremendous pressure.”

— Robert Ramsey (Kurt Russell)

”You don’t just get the nickname Lucky Larry. You got to be lucky.”

— Lucky Larry (Kevin Dillon)

”They’re rare, they’re unpredictable, and they are lethal.”

— Captain Bradford, on rogue waves (Andre Braugher)
