Not a phrase film a film as such but an expression that intrigued me enough to look it up when I first heard it was "jumping the shark". For those that don't know, this was first used to describe the scene in Happy Days when Fonzie jumps over a shark on water-skis. The point of the expression being that you can identify that as the moment when you know it's all downhill and quality inevitably declines. It gets used more and more widely nowadays.

I wondered if the shark references in Anchorman 2 were a deliberate nod in that direction...

Actually, all these are just quotable phrases. The OP's one - "we're gonna need a bigger boat" is actually quite unusual as people do genuinely use it to describe actual situations, not just when kidding around with mates.

Not heard that one until now. I specifically avoided the later Indiana Jones films and missed the actual scene but, having just looked it up, I can see why it made the impact it did.

This was a genuine conversation with someone who was a bit ditzy in the Kings house pub on new years day 1999 prior to driving back to Sheffield;

Me: I'm knackered, driving back is going to be tough.
Tim: We'll probably have to use the force Luke,
Ditzy: a forceluke? What's one of those?
Me: It's something a bit like cruise control.
Ditzy (to boyfriend) that sounds great, has our car got a forceluke?

Many years ago the wife and I were watching the most awful 1950s war film on telly.
The acting and dialogue were terrible. In one scene, this soldier was at the front, on his belly, under heavy fire, explosions all around, and he called over his shoulder, 'Hurry up with those machine guns", as if he were asking someone to pass the salt.

We both collapsed laughing, and since then, whenever we see awful dialogue or acting, we often chant, simultaneously, 'Hurry up with those machine guns"!
