If you think Jack Nicholson said it, then the movie is definitely "Mars Attacks".

Yes to everyone so far . . .

- Rodney King was definitely the one who said it first . . .
- It has been in a ton of movies . . .
- Jack Nicholson did say it in Mars Attacks! . . .

Burton seems to love that line, as it was used -- appalingly -- in his wretched Planet of the Apes remake.

Rodney King said it, but i'll always remember it from the skit on In Living Color where David Allen Grier and Jim Carrey played King and Reginald Denny.

I doubt that the quote is famous enough to show up in a history book...we're talking RODNEY King, not Martin Luther King.
