Modern Family: 10 Iconic Quotes That Perfectly Sum Up Luke & Manny’s Relationship

Published

on

Nolan Gould is starring in the upcoming movie Camp about young adults navigating the highs and lows of sleepover camp. Gould and Rico Rodriguez’s dynamic as Luke Dunphy and Manny Delgado on Modern Family also allowed the characters to deal with all of the emotions, changes, and tough moments of growing up.


While Manny and Luke behave like siblings who love each other but can’t help but compete, Manny is Luke’s step-uncle, which creates some hilarious scenes considering that they’re the same age. Whether hiking, on vacation in a sunny place, or talking about high school graduation, Manny and Luke have many Modern Family quotes that show how charming their close relationship is.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

“I Was Trying To Relax You.”

Luke teases Manny about sweating

Luke and Manny have a playful relationship and that is evident with this quote. They often tease each other as they know each other so well from so many years of family gatherings and chaotic moments. While Manny doesn’t love Luke pointing out how sweaty he can get, Luke can’t help but be honest.

Luke is his own quirky person and doesn’t always realize that some of his bold comments can upset someone. Manny might prefer a kinder, more compassionate delivery, but Luke tells it like it is. Luke thinks that he’s helping Manny by finding a way for him to not sweat as much.

“You’re Sneakier Than I Am… You Have No Moral Compass.”

Manny wants to go to a party

The best Modern Family quotes are emotional but funny, and when Manny wants to go to a party with Luke, he explains their different personalities. While someone might be offended by these words, Luke has a tough, thick skin and shrugs it off.

Manny and Luke can say anything to each other, brush it off, and have fun moments later, which is part of why watching them is so much fun. Manny knows that Luke will actually find his words to be complimentary because Luke likes being his own person.

“We’ll Be Eating The Mood.”

Manny and Luke go on a hike in season 2

During a hike, Luke says “we eat what we kill” and Manny is so upset that everyone is in a bad mood that he makes this joke. This is a perfect Manny quote as it’s somewhat sophisticated yet it doesn’t make that much sense.

Luke and Manny get along because they’re both positive people who look on the bright side, and they’re both sensitive people who are in touch with their emotions. Some of their funniest quotes are when they make random observations about the world around them.

“You Realize We’re Not Twins, Right?”

Manny is confused that Luke wants them to swap places in season 5 “Under Pressure”

When Luke is going on a date with twins, he wants he and Manny to pretend to be each other, and Manny makes this logical statement. There are many great Modern Family couples but neither Luke nor Manny have a steady partner throughout the sitcom as they are both young and Manny is famous for having bad dating luck.

This quote proves that Manny is the practical one and Luke is the dreamer. While this makes perfect sense to Manny, Luke doesn’t see things from his perspective and really believes that this idea could work.

“Don’t You Get It? They Were All For You.”

Manny tells Luke he wrote him poems in the series finale

In a series finale full of heartfelt scenes, Luke asks Manny why he never wrote any poems about their bond, and Manny sweetly says that he wrote every single poem for Luke. While this is a corny moment, it works and solidifies how much Luke and Manny have meant to each other.

Luke and Manny have grown up together and had a huge impact on each other. Manny has encouraged Luke to be bolder and more confident, especially when it comes to feeling insecure about dating, and Luke has pushed Manny to be silly, goofy, and not so serious all the time. They both realize their influence on each other in this last episode.

“Well, I’ll Be Graduating.”

Manny jokes about Luke not finishing high school

From the start of Modern Family, Luke is seen as the ditzy younger child who doesn’t always understand what people say to him. Claire isn’t sure that he or Haley will go to college, but Phil appreciates Luke’s quirks and strengths. Luke loves Manny because Manny cares about him and sees something special in him, too.

While Manny cares about Luke, he can’t help but tease him as much as the rest of the family, although Manny jokes with love and affection. When Luke makes a silly remark, Manny jokes that he might be walking across that high school graduation stage alone. There are times when the relatives feel more like siblings and this is one of them.

“I Was Brushing My Teeth At The Same Time. You Try To Do That.”

Manny and Luke fight in Hawaii in season 1

When the family travels to Hawaii in season 1, it’s one of the best Modern Family vacations and also includes a hilarious argument between Luke and Manny. As fans might have predicted, the characters hate sharing a room, and Manny has a unique reason for wanting to sleep somewhere else.

When Manny shares that Luke peed on the bathroom floor, Luke, with all seriousness, says that he had trouble brushing his teeth. Manny is exasperated with Luke here, but he actually appreciates Luke’s weirdness because it keeps life interesting.

“You Have Been So Unpleasant Lately.”

Luke is upset with Manny in season 11 “The Prescott”

The season 11 episode “The Prescott” is a fun one, as Alex’s fancy company allows her to stay in a beautiful and elegant apartment building. When her family visits her, it’s as chaotic as viewers would think it would be. In a smaller scene, Luke tells Manny that he doesn’t like how Manny has been behaving.

This quote shows how close Luke and Manny are as Luke has no problem telling Manny that he’s disappointed in him. Luke is used to being the immature one and having Manny as a voice of reason in his life and Luke just wants Manny to be his usual optimistic self.

“They Hated The Both Of Us.” “But You More.”

Manny and Luke lose the school election in the season 8 episode “Blindsided”

There are some Modern Family storylines that fans dislike, but in season 8, Manny and Luke compete to be senior class president, which is hilarious but also nerve-wracking considering the many emotions involved. When neither wins, they admit that they were unpopular during their campaigns.

This exchange is funny and sweet as Luke tells Manny that Manny did a worse job. Even when consoling a loss and feeling terrible, Luke can’t help but feel competitive with Manny. Luke’s words might sound harsh but he genuinely doesn’t mean to offend, he just has to express himself no matter what.

“Nice Going. Now My Mom And My Sister Are Fighting.”

Manny is upset about Claire and Gloria in season 1

There are many moments when Manny and Luke can pretend to be brothers who are having fun together or joking around at the other’s expense. But at the end of the day, Manny and Claire are step-siblings, which Manny brings up during a chaotic season 1 storyline.

Luke doesn’t like being reminded of the fact that his mom is Manny’s sibling, and yet Manny can’t help but be honest about how annoyed he is. This quote shows how Manny and Luke fight all the time but undernearth, they care about each other and want to have fun.

‘Violent Night’ Review: David Harbour Stars in Your Basic, Everyday Heist Meets Bloody Action Santa Meets ‘Home Alone’ Christmas Thriller

Published

on

The now-ancient joke about the kind of pitches that movie executives respond to (“It’s ‘Avengers 2’…meets ‘Glass Onion’!”) is really about what the audience responds to. We’re the ones who like our special-sauce tacos stuffed inside a bacon burger topped with a bun made of pizza. And “Violent Night” is a movie that takes the oversize appetite of the audience very seriously. The title might lead you to expect a holiday horror film, with Santa as a mad slasher ­— but, you know, we’ve been there, eaten that. In “Violent Night,” David Harbour, that jovially quirky actor from “Stranger Things” and the 2019 “Hellboy” reboot, does in fact play a dissolute Santa who cruises through Christmas on a bender of holiday cookies and random alcohol, peeing and puking off the side of his sleigh — but in movies like “Bad Santa,” we’ve tasted that fast-food combo, too.

To wake up the jaded taste buds of today’s holiday movie audience, you need a piece of entertainment that’s truly going to combine flavors. So consider this: a comedy about a filthy-rich family whose members can’t stand each other but gather anyway, on Christmas Eve, at the Greenwich, Conn., mansion of their misanthropic matriarch, Gertrude Lightstone (Beverly D’Angelo), for a little forced holiday cheer. Before the festivities have begun, they’re set upon by a ruthless team of home invaders led by a psycho who calls himself Scrooge (John Leguizamo). He sets the tone with a hearty “Bah humbug, motherfucker!,” and the foul-mouthed Yuletide spirits escalate from there.

Scrooge, who’s been casing the joint for months, knows that there’s $300 million hidden in the vault below, and he has arranged it so that everyone — catering staff, security agents — is secretly working for him. What he wasn’t counting on is Santa Claus, who’s making his yearly Christmas pitstop. Santa is a bit of a Scrooge himself: a drunk and a curmudgeon who can’t get over what consumerist zombies today’s kids have become. But he’s also got special powers. Do I mean his ability to glide, with a twinkling twitch of his nose, up and down chimneys? Or the golden digital scrolls he unfurls with a list of what each kid has done that’s naughty or nice? Certainly all that.

Mostly, though, this Santa is a weapon-welding badass. He’s many centuries old and started off, in vintage Kris Kringle fashion, as some sort of earthy Scandinavian Viking warrior. Now he’s like a member of the Expendables, dispatching enemies with old-school brutality. When he grabs a sledgehammer, he becomes a death-wish version of Thor. But since “Violent Night” is a Christmas movie, it’s all in good fun! Especially when Trudy (Leah Brady), the 7-year-old daughter of Jason (Alex Hassell), the only honorable member of the Lightstone clan, goes “Home Alone” medieval on the asses of the home invaders. Ladders are booby-trapped so throats get pierced with nails; heads are scalped; the pain gets brought. As someone in a film like this might put it: That’s what I’m talkin’ about. Or maybe I should just say: Have yourself a bloody little gonzo action Christmas.  

Over the last week, everyone in entertainment media, including me, has churned out hand-wringing articles about how the acclaimed awards films are all fizzling at the box office. One after another, “Tár,” “The Banshees of Inisherin,” “She Said,” “Triangle of Sadness,” and “Till” are all crawling their way to a gross of maybe $10 million. (“The Fabelmans,” with a more high-profile pedigree, will probably crawl its way to $20 million.) We know that this is the age of Marvel, so “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is the triumphant counterexample. But even in 2022, people don’t just go to Marvel movies. One of the things that’s defeated adult moviegoing is the insatiable hunger for unabashed junk food like “Violent Night.” The movie has no comic-book hook; it’s a trash-compactor genre buffet that smashes together a dozen things you’ve seen before. But that’s the hook. “Violent Night” is amusing in a few spots, wearying in more than a few others, but to complain about it in the way that I’m doing is to come off as churlish. It’s a movie that feeds the beast.

David Harbour gives off of a ping of likability, and that makes him the right actor to play a down-in-the-dumps, vengeance-is-mine Santa who is really, beneath his bloody mottled gray curls, the Christmas mensch we want him to be. John Leguizamo, as always, refuses to phone anything in; as Scrooge the sociopath who hates Christmas, he makes every obscenity pop. Beverly D’Angelo, Edi Patterson, and Cam Gigandet play the rest of the Lightstone clan as walking high-camp horrors, and Alexis Louder, as Jason’s estranged wife, lends a lone note of stubborn sanity to the proceedings. “Violent Night,” with its action-thriller soundtrack built around themes from classic Christmas songs, is a movie that makes you think: What’s next, “Massacre on 34th St.”? Christmas movies, like all Hollywood pulp, build on one another, and maybe this is just one more age-of-nothing-sacred holiday mish-mash, but “Violent Night,” depending on how it performs, could open the door to a new kind of down-and-dirty Christmas/action hybrid. Just imagine hearing lines like “God bless us — every one, motherfucker!” The possibilities are endless.

Super Mario Bros. Movie Posters Show New Looks For Nintendo Characters

Published

on

Illumination unveils more Super Mario Bros. Movie posters showing off the new looks for the beloved Nintendo characters for the animated adventure.


Hot off the premiere of a new trailer for the animated movie, a new set of The Super Mario Bros. Movie posters have been released to showcase the colorful cast of Nintendo characters. The video game publisher has partnered with Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment to give their most iconic video character new life on the big screen after the critical and box office disappointment of the 1993 live-action Super Mario Bros. The new animated take on Mario features an impressive cast including Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day, Seth Rogen, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jack Black.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

To coincide with the new trailer, Universal Pictures also released a series of The Super Mario Bros. Movie posters. The key arts highlight the main characters including Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Toad, and Bowser. Each character is given a unique location that will be showcased in the film and highlights the level of accuracy the filmmakers took to make the characters match their video game counterparts. Check out the posters below:


Super Mario Bros.’ Character Designs Are A Good Sign

Super Mario Bros Movie Rainbow Road

Ever since it was announced that Chris Pratt would be voicing Mario in The Super Mario Bros. Movie, the film has faced an uphill battle in trying to win fans over. The first teaser for the movie even held off on Mario, with the character getting only a minimal amount of dialogue. While audiences may still have a hard time getting used to his voice for the character, the faithfulness of the character designs showcased in the posters are likely to ease some concerns about the film.

The character designs for The Super Mario Bros. Movie capture the essence of the characters, with only some minor tweaks made to the faces to make them more expressive for an animated picture. It does not appear that The Super Mario Bros. Movie will suffer the same hiccup that Sonic the Hedgehog faced when audiences reacted so poorly to the title character’s design in the original teaser that the character had to be reworked and the film delayed. The creative team behind The Super Mario Bros. Movie has clearly gone to great lengths to maintain a level of visual accuracy to the video games.

As audiences head out to the theaters this holiday season for films like Avatar: The Way of Water, it is likely they will not only see the new The Super Mario Bros. Movie trailer, but also the character posters at various theaters across the country. The posters are colorful enough to catch the eyes of long-time fans, casual moviegoers who may recognize Mario, and young child audiences who are new to the character. Nintendo and Universal are hoping this pays off for a big box office intake as Nintendo is looking to develop more films while the Mario-themed land also set to open at Universal Studios Hollywood just ahead of the film’s release.

Oscars 2023 Will Include All 23 Categories Presented Live on Air (EXCLUSIVE)

Published

on

All 23 categories will be aired during the Oscars 2023 telecast.

Bill Kramer, CEO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, announced the news exclusively to Variety Tuesday morning. “I can confirm that all categories will be included in the live telecast,” he said.

The news comes after eight different Oscar categories — original score, makeup and hairstyling, documentary short, film editing, production design, animated short, live action short and sound — were cut from the main telecast at the 2022 Academy Awards, leading to much outrage across the film industry.

“We are committed to having a show that celebrates the artisans, the arts and sciences and the collaborative nature of moviemaking. This is very much what the mission of the Academy is, and I am very hopeful that we can do a show that celebrates all components of moviemaking in an entertaining and engaging way,” Kramer said.

Since his appointment in June, Kramer said he’s had many conversations about restoring the missing categories: “We are thrilled to be in a position to execute that.”

Jimmy Kimmel will return for the third time to host the Oscars. Kramer said he was excited to have the late-night host back. “I love having someone hosting the show who knows live television. I think that’s so critical,” he said.

When asked about what else audiences can expect from the telecast, Kramer said, “All I will say right now is that our anniversary, the 95th Oscars, is extremely important to us. I think it sets a really interesting rhythm for our 100th. You see this in the museum, I think we are able to celebrate our legacy while bringing the Academy into the future and the show will reflect that.”

Executive producers and showrunners Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner of White Cherry Entertainment will produce the Oscars, and Weiss returns, for the eighth consecutive year, as the show’s director. The 95th Academy Awards will take place on March 12, 2023, live from the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood. The ceremony will be televised live on ABC and in more than 200 territories worldwide
