Sometimes it’s good to be bad. And no one makes bad look quite so good as Cruella de Vil!

Over the course of multiple Disney movies, Cruella ‘Ella’ de Vil has proved she’s a wickedly fun villain, who will stop at nothing in order to get what she wants. Sure, her intentions are cruel, her methods are dreadful, and her regard for life is deplorable… but… erm… she sure is a snappy dresser, and that counts for something, right?

Oh, and she certainly knows how to speak her mind. In fact, whenever she pops up on screen Cruella de Vil often gets the best lines!

In this post, I am taking a look at Cruella’s dialogue, with a run-through of her best movie quotes. This post includes quotes from One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961), 101 Dalmatians (1996), 102 Dalmatians (2000), and Cruella (2021), so be sure to take a look and remind yourself why she is such a great villain!
