*En attendant la vague, vous croiserez peut être un célèbre surfeur Français, il s’appelle Brice, il vient de Nice…et après un an en France, vous aurez surement entendu de nombreuses répliques de ce film culte !

a lot of buzz


Explanation:
Seems like a remote choice but in fact, buzz technically is reverberations which, like the related term repercussions, is one literal translation of repliques. Additionally, buzz has the colloquial meaning the author is aiming at with repliques.

neutral  ph-b: The author would have used the word 'buzz' if that's what s/he meant. It's become an everyday word in French. Besides, actual quotes from that film were used/heard a lot in France at one point, and still are to some extent.

lots of one-liners


Explanation:
Obviously nothing at all to do with a replica, and everything to do with quotes from the film.

A "line" is too formal for the context. Actors learns their lines, academics might quote lines from Shalespeare. But when you are quoting from "Brice de Nice", you might agree that o"one-liner" is a nice fit for the context.

A one-liner is basically a humoristic line, and, indeed, not necessarily a quote. That said, famous one-liners do often become famous quotes.

Not always humoristic, but always eminently citable!
