Movie Tag Line Makeover

No, this is not a review. Today I decided to have some frivolous fun and try to come up with new tag lines for a variety of films. Most of my proposed lines are original, but some are bits of dialogue that I think could have been used quite nicely. (The line in quotation marks next to the title is the tag line that was actually used.)
