Because you can watch a movie repeatedly and enjoy quotes in context, video and DVD is a great way to enjoy films with famous movie lines. Here are some of my favorite movie quotes from "American Beauty."

Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey)

My name is Lester Burnham. This is my neighborhood. This is my street. This ... is my life. I am 42 years old. In less than a year I will be dead. Of course, I don't know that yet. And in a way I am dead already.


Carolyn Burnham (Annette Bening)

Honey, I'm so proud of you. I watched you very closely, and you didn't screw up once.



Carolyn Burnham (Annette Bening)

Jane. Honey. Are you trying to look unattractive?

Jane Burnham (Thora Birch)

Yes.

Carolyn Burnham (Annette Bening)

Well, congratulations. You've succeded admirably.



Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey)

It's okay. I wouldn't remember me either.


Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey)

I feel like I've been in a coma for about twenty years. And I'm just now waking up.


Angela Hayes (Mena Suvari)

I don't think that there's anything worse than being ordinary.


Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey)

... it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst ...

And then I remember ... to relax, and not try to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain. And I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. Don't worry ... you will someday.
