11 Movie Quotes That Could Double As Breakup Lines

There are few things more painful than having to break up with someone. In the end, most of us end up employing some cliché breakup line to get the job done -- "it's not you, it's me," or "we're just at different places in our lives right now."

But what if you were to use a movie line to call it quits instead? On Friday, the folks over on Reddit considered that very question, offering up the lines they'd co-opt if they had to let their lover down easy (or not so easy -- "You're tacky and I hate you"? Ouch).

Scroll down to see some of the funniest answers, then head to the comments and weigh in with the movie lines you think could easily double as breakup lines.
