|Okay! We know he's a great actor and that basically every character or project he's done has either moved us, made us cry (almost), but definitely and most importantly cracked us up. This is your chance to let everyone know which is your favorite piece (or pieces) of work by John Leguizamo. E-mail me with your answers and I will post them up as they come in. You can post as many as you like.|
From: Mercy G. It's hard for me to decide, but my all time favorite movie has to be "To Wong Foo, thanks for everything!, Julie Newmar." My favorite lines are: "I think maybe he's pre-ju-di-ced" "Mamis, don't quote me but I think this one is de-cea-sed" "That's okay Mr. Manager, we just got tired and came in for a little san-ctu-ary" In Mambo Mouth when he's playing Manny the Fanny and he says "Where you from? Milwaukee. Ooh! I like foreigners."
From: Monica R. My favorite movie is "Executive Decision" and my favorite line is: "Who's this - 007?" Also from "The Pest" when he and Chubby are in the car next to those two preppy guys, and John says "Spank'em, broth-a!" Again in "The Pest" where Gustav (Jeffrey Jones) says that he'll kill Pest's whole family, Pest comes back with, "You're gonna get in so much trouble - jail, even! Can you say Prison Bitch????"
From: Claudia C. My favorite is him as Tybalt in "Romeo + Juliet." I love when he says "Romeo, the love I bear thee can afford no better term than this: Thou art a villain."
From: Joanna My fav John Leguizamo movie is "The Pest." My fave line was: "YO! Waz Up, FREAK!"
From: Kelly I have about a million favorites but if I had to choose 3 they would be: 1) From "Executive Decision" - "Yeah, and if this bomb has a short fuse then what? My Latin ass is gonna be raining all over Greenland? I don't think so bud!" 2) From "The Pest" when he shoots Gustav with the gun and hits everything EXCEPT Gustav - "Could I do that again? I was looking through the wrong thingy!" 3) From "SPAWN" - "You'll have to excuse him, freak accident with Jiffy Pop." "That's so whickety-whack!" as Miggy from Spic-O-Rama.And from "House of Buggin" when they did "Illegal Alien Makeovers" - "Cuban, Hatian, or Sorbo-Croation, we'll keep you in this nation!"
From: Gina A. My favorite John Leguizamo movie is "The Pest" (not only because it's hilarious, and stars John, but because of Eduardo Ballerini (Gustav's son). I also like "To Wong Foo, Thanks for everything, Julie Newmar!" My favorite lines: The Pest - I don't have a favorite line, cause they're all great, but I love when he says "Snap!", and "A-Ight" (All right). To Wong Foo - When Chi Chi tells Bobbi-Lee that she can have Bobbi-Ray, it almost made me cry.
From: Shawn Here's one of my favorite lines from "The Pest"!! When Angus says if he don't have his money by Wednesday he'll kill his whole family, and Pest says "How 'bout Thursday and you can just take out a cousin!"
From: Jin I'm absolutely in love with "The Pest", the film and Pestario... I've got millions of favorite lines, some of them include: In the song when he's singing "Get stupid, get retarded, coz Pest'll get the party started" When they're outside the Paris club, next to the car with the two idiots "Hey, I here u got a mad sick party going on, could you hook up a brother and his bro-ther?" "You guys are harsh..infact, you guys suck!" "Get stupid,...Spank'em bro-ther!" After Pest fires the gun at Gustav and Leo "what do ya know! I loveded it" And I also love heaps of Edoardo Ballerini's lines like "Faser, I hate you" Sorry I can never PLEASE YOU!" "Cocktoe" and after Gustav shoots him, Gustav says "Oh, he's wearing a bullet proof vest" Himel "doesn't mean it doesn't hurt!" I just love them both, I love the theme song, I love it all!
From: Lelu My favorite movie would be either be "A Pyromaniac's Love Story" or "Romeo + Juliet". Any movie he does is a master piece. I luv when he says from R+J "What art thou drawn and talk of peace? Peace I hate the word as I hate HELL, all Mantagues, and Thee!" But everything he says raises my spirits!

From:Angelia My favorite lines from "The Pest" were when the bad guy was in his girlfriend's house and he tried to shoot him, but he missed. "Can I try it again? I was lookin' through the wrong thingie?" Also when he was at his girlfriend's house at dinner and said, "What does a brother have to do to get some respect bitch?" And after his crotch caught on fire he came back to the dinner table. "My childrens have been saveded"
From: LSchu56588 I love it in "The Pest" when Gustav was on the cell phone with Pest and had his family and his girlfriend's family and Gustav tells him that if he isn't there in 20 minutes he'll kill them and Pest says "If by any chance I'm late, could you start with Malaria?"

They're color-coded!! Yellow for the front, and brown for the back!!" "If you prick a latino, doth he not bleedeth? If you tickle-eth a latino, doth he not giggle-eth?"
From: G Pacheco My favorite line over all would have to be from the show he had on Fox "House of Buggin". In one of the episodes where the two gangs confront each other in an alley and the tough looking gang said to John's gang "Who are these pendehos?" and John just looked at him with a stern look on his face and said "Who are you calling panty hose" That, and the whole Spic-O-Rama act he did on HBO, was without a doubt the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life.
From: Katey My favorite line from John Leguizamo is definitely from "Executive Decision" when he says, "Who's this? 007?"
From: Caroline My favorite movie with John Leguizamo is "Romeo + Juliet". He is a killer Tybalt and adds some deginate needed sass and spice for the movie. In "Romeo + Juliet" when Tybalt is first seen as he exits the gas station, "What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds? Turn thee, Benvolio, look upon they death."
From: Stephanie From "The Pest" when they are in the club and he's the chinese guy... and he throws the fermones on the bad guy and his friend Ninja gets attracted to the guy and Pestario tell him..."You horny lil dog.

From: Tracy His performance as Clown in "SPAWN" just blew me away. He deserves some recognition for portraying the most annoying, evil, sadistic freak in movieland. Clown: "You've been violated, girly-man"
From: Monica J. Favorite John movie: "Carlito's Way". At the end when Al Pacino was getting on the train and John turns around and says "Hey remember me? Benny Blanco from the Bronx" Another great line is from "Romeo + Juliet" when he says "Romeo, thou art a villain" Favorite scene from "R+J", the begging fight scene at the gas station when he kisses his pimp-ass gun

From: Carol My favorite of all is "To Wong Foo..." where he plays the perfect Chi Chi. The best part of it is when they're in the car and they start arguing, and Chi Chi says a lot of "bla, bla, bla" I - don't - think - so" And moves her neck to the side. It's hilarious! And last but not least, "Romeo + Juliet". I guess this was one of the best films ever made, and John is more than great playing Tybalt.

I also like when he pretended that his pet duck got killed and he said..."Quakie...what have they didid to you?" I also like it when he said "B-I-H (bitch)." I really loved that whole movie, but those were the lines I really got a kick out of.
From: Diana My favorite line of his is in FrEaK when he says "My parents' accents were so heavy they couldn't understand eachother" also when he immitates a Muslim in FrEaK and says "I know about you Mexicans trying to by out all the cabbage patch dolls for the birth certificates."

And when the scottish people warn him if he doesn't bring $50,000 by Wed they'll kill his famly. "You don't take us seriously" "BURRP"!!
From: Raduz girl I like when Malaria is like "These jeans make me look fat" and Pest is like "No Malaria, your fat butt makes you look fat" and he sticks out his tongue.

From: Marinella My fave film is Romeo + Juliet and my fave scene is when he comes on the beach to kill Mercutio. When you see him behind the legs of Mercutio who is climbing on the scene of the theater, he looks less self-confident and maybe a little sorry (Mercutio wasn't a Montague).

"And the winners are, Wanda and Terry. Multiplying like rabbits. And jumpin', and pumpin', and doin' it and..." (seeing Wanda for the first time, and is at breat level) "It's times like these I appreciate being a midget." (After Al turns into SPAWN) "In the name of people and things in hell, I dub thee, SPAWN. Leader of hell's armies. Arise Crispin. Arise Dule of Deep Fried. Arise Sultan of Sleem and Mayor of Ooowy Gooowy."
