Johannesburg - From Dirty Dancing to Scarface, ShowMax has some awesome classic films in its catalogue. If you can't cough up at least one quote from each of these on demand, then you've got some serious movie history catching up to do!

1. Dirty Dancing (1987)

Join Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman as she heads to the Catskills with her family and learns about dancing – and love – when she meets the sexy dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze).

Best quote - Johnny: "Nobody puts Baby in a corner."

2. Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Quentin Tarantino’s iconic film about a jewellery heist gone wrong. It’s thrilling, fast-paced and very, very bloody.

Best quote - Mr Blonde: “Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy, or are you gonna bite?”

3. When Harry Met Sally (1989)

One of the best romance movies ever, Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) and Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) are good friends trying to answer one of love’s toughest questions: Does sex make friendship between men and women impossible?

Best quote - Harry: “When you realise you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

4. Rocky (1976)

Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is an amateur boxer who gets the chance of a lifetime to take on the world’s heavyweight champion, Apollo Creed. 

Best quote - Mickey Goldmill: “You'll be able to spit nails, kid. Like the guy says, you're gonna eat lightning and you're gonna crap thunder.” 

5. Scarface (1983)

Al Pacino plays Cuban criminal Tony Montana in this ultra-violent gangster epic. Tony joins Miami drug boss Robert Loggia’s operations and quickly rises up the ranks.

Best quote - Tony Montana: “I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.”

All of the above are available to stream on ShowMax.
