The aim of this research is to find out the classification of Illocutionary acts performed by the speakers in the movie dialogues and to evaluate whether the hearers will respond to the same way the speaker is expecting, in other words, fulfilling the perlocutionary act of the speech act. The methodology used in this research is a qualitative method. The data are collected by watching the movie and reading all of the dialogues. After that, the writer classifies the speech acts found in the dialogues based on Searle‟s theoretical framework. After classifying the types of illocutionary acts, the writer points out the most frequently used type of illocutionary act and the reason behind it. Then, the writer describes whether the perlocutionary act expected by the speaker really occurs in each conversation. The result of this study shows that all types of illocutionary acts are found in this movie, with representative as the most frequently used type of illocutionary act. Furthermore, most of the perlocutionary acts expected by the speakers in this movie are fulfilled by the hearers, except in some cases where specific contextual factors do not allow the speakers to do what the speakers want.
