“Round up the usual suspects.” “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” “Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.” “There’s no place like home.” The movies are so much a part of our lives, so much a part of us, that we can’t help quoting them. James Scheibli’s new book, Movie Quotes for All Occasions: Unforgettable Lines for Life’s Biggest Moments, is a treasure trove of gems from the movies, and it is already an Amazon best-seller.

What makes this book special is the way it matches the quotes, to the occasions where they are most apt — graduations, weddings, office pep talks, sports pep talks, and even sadness and loss. And Scheibli has some great selections, both the familiar to the unexpected, the classics (“Rocky,” of course, “Citizen Kane,” ) to the far-from-classics (“Hellboy,” “Never Back Down,” “Two for the Money,” “Vanilla Sky”). It also includes recommended films, behind-the-scenes details, and some unexpected trivia.” Every page is a delight.
