Fun Friday: Favorite Cheesy Movie Speech

What is your favorite over-the-top, cheese-ball, make-you-want-to-vomit speech from a movie?

Mine is Bill Pullman’s speech from Independence Day.

You know – the one where he is the President, everyone is getting ready to hop into a fighter jet, and he’s got to motivate them to go and shoot a giant alien spaceship out of the sky.

Leaders, this is the model for inspiring your people to action.

Such fire.

Such passion.

Such willingness to read a terribly written script with purpose and conviction.

“We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on, we’re going to survive. Today we celebrate our independence day!”

…That’s the good stuff right there.

Your turn.
