I feel like there’s really no way to hate the movie National Treasure. It’s a silly premise, sure, and the dialogue leaves something to be desired, but the leads have good chemistry and the sidekick character has comic timing for days.
Plus, it’s inspired these 20 posts, and really, that makes it an instant classic.
20. Please, please let this happen.
To Disney President Bob Iger: PLEASE MAKE 'NATIONAL TREASURE 3' ASAP. THE LAST ONE WAS CALLED 'THE BOOK OF SECRETS' BUT WE DIDN'T ACTUALLY GET TO SEE INSIDE THE ACTUAL BOOK! WE NEED TO EXPLORE THE BOOK AND WE NEED A THIRD MOVIE. ALSO, THIS WOULD MEAN MORE NIC CAGE. PLEASE, SIR.

19. It is quite the 180, but that’s what makes it so amazing.
Within the first half hour of National Treasure, Nicolas Cage says both “I’m not going to let you steal the Declaration of Independence” and “I’m going to steal the Declaration of Independence” and this might be the greatest movie ever made.

18. We will all fight you.
There are two types of people in this world….Those who enjoy the National Treasure movies with Nicholas Cage and those who are my mortal enemies.

17. Describe your perfect date.
My perfect date? We meet at a gala. I am wearing a black gown and you’re dressed in a tuxedo. After we dance, you leave suddenly. I follow you outside. You’ve stolen the Declaration of Independence. You’re Nicholas Cage. This is National Treasure

16. Riley Poole is the only one with common sense, here, and we love him for it.
15. Yeah, no hanky panky during the film, sir.
look if you’re gonna invite someone over to “watch a movie” you better pick a movie no one gives a shit about. once a guy picked “National Treasure” and guess what we did? watched the entire movie bc it’s flame. guess what we did not do.

14. More proof you can’t trust Rotten Tomatoes.
Hi uh National Treasure is the greatest movie ever and the 45% rating on rotten tomatoes means nothing

13. I could get behind that.
HOT TAKE. The National Treasure movies ARE National Treasures and deserve more respect

12. It can say anything you want, really.

11. Season 1 of Game of Thrones all makes sense, now.
Watching National Treasure with my son, and it JUST dawned on me that Ned Stark tried to steal the Declaration of Independence…
Guess he kinda had it coming.

10. No one is going to argue with you I don’t think.
While we're at it, can we also dispose of this fiction that National Treasure isn't one of the best movies ever made.

9. Yeah, what if THAT?
8. With responses like that, you could have been IN the movies!
Clenching my fists and thinking about all of the scenes from every national treasure movie at the same time

7. Isn’t life great when it comes full circle like that?
Sometimes you realize that what you’re searching for has been there all along. For example, all that time in National Treasure we watched Nicolas Cage try to steal the Declaration of Independence only to find that the movie itself was the only national treasure we needed.

6. Maybe he’s a big fan of lemonade?
The most unrealistic thing about National Treasure is that Nick Cages dad has an entire bowl of lemons in his fridge. Like who has an EnTiRe BoWl oF LeMoNs is their FrIdGe?¿

5. Even Lin Manuel is a fan.
4. It really was real all the time.

3.There’s no way around it.
2. I’d almost forgotten about this amazing moment.

1. I would like to read this essay now, please.
In National Treasure, Nicolas Cage and Diane Kruger fall in love post-treasure hunt.
They separate in the sequel. Only another, even higher-stakes treasure hunt can reunite them. In this essay, I will argue that the real National Treasures were the friends we made along the way

I’m off for a rewatch, because yeah. I love it.
Do you like this movie? Why or why not? We’d love to hear about it in the comments!
