What's a good monologue from a movie?
I'm a 15 year old girl so I want it to be age appropriate

I don't know what you mean by age-appropriate; if you mean no foul language or sexual content, then I can recommend a movie that has TWO good monologues.
The movie is "Other People's Money" with Gregory Peck, Danny De Vito and Penelope Ann Miller. It's a great movie, very funny. But one of the best parts is near the end of the film, when first Gregory Peck and then Danny De Vito each has a monologue. They're each making a speech at the stockholders meeting of the New England Wire and Cable Company, which Gregory Peck's family founded and in which he is the largest single shareholder; Danny De Vito is a "corporate raider" trying to take over the company. Each of them has a monologue in support of his position. Each monologue is absolutely perfect.

Another memorable monologue in a movie is in "Jaws." This monologue is when shark-hunter Quint, played by Robert Shaw, police chief Martin Brody, played by Roy Scheider, and marine biologist Matt Hooper, played by Richard Dreyfuss, are all on Quint's boat "Orca." They're sitting together inside the boat and they're all a little drunk, and they start comparing scars. Scheider notices that Shaw has a tattoo that says USS Indianapolis, and says something about the tattoo.
Shaw launches into a monologue about the Indianapolis. He's one of the few men who survived her sinking and the subesequent shark attacks on the hundreds of survivors in the ocean after the sinking. As far as I'm concerned, Shaw's monologue is the most memorable part of the whole movie.

In the movie "American President" Michael Douglas gives a speech toward the end of the movie. It was pretty powerful. Also, in the movie "Chapter Two", Marsha Mason gives a speech to James Caan. that was also very good.Source(s): I saw both movies a few times and I remember it.

10 Things I Hate About You
light-hearted and age appropriate
dont worry if its not long enough, make it long enough. add pauses and move around. dont feel rushed, thats the number one mistake.Actually act with movement and not just with your voice.
Be creative, dont feel like you have to do exactly what that actors in the movie did. your not them, make the scene about you.
good luck and Practice practice practice
