The good folks over at AdWeek, one of my very favorite websites on the Internet, recently came up with the 66 Best Movie Taglines of the Last 30 Years. Sometimes, it's like they create lists specifically designed for me to pilfer. But I pilfer with affection, and I only partially pilfer in the hopes that you all will check out AdWeek for the complete list.

Here are my favorite 20 of the 66 Best Movie Taglines of the Last 30 Years. Note that the selection of taglines is in no way related to the actual quality of the film. If you are so inclined, do check out all 66 over at Adweek.
