Most Overused Line Ever: 'You Just Don't Get It, Do You?'

Owen Wilson in "Night at the Museum: Smithsonian"

Seems like the inebriated geniuses over at FilmDrunk are on a roll… or is that a bender? After recently taking on the ridiculous overuse of "Jack" and "Rose" in "Titanic," they've set their sites on a hoary old chestnut: "You just don't get it, do you?"

You might have heard that once or twice in your day-to-day life, but with their new video editor Jeff Smith has found more than 100 films that use the line, and the eight-minute video does not get old due to the sheer odd assortment of random flicks they've used.

Due to their tireless, obsessive search they've shown the clichéd phrase spans everything from action, drama, comedy, animation, arty foreign flicks, badly-dubbed Asian crime movies, etc. No movie is immune, regardless of quality, be it The Rock in "Tooth Fairy" or Charlie Sheen in Best Picture-winner "Platoon." There's just no cure for not getting' it.
